Hello and thanks for stopping by to learn a little about the person behind The Beauty Hiker.
Tasmania is where I was raised, and the place I learnt all things hiking. From doing hikes with my family, to studying Adventure Education at school, I have loved the outdoors from an early age.
Makeup came later in life, when I was working in the fashion and beauty industries. In 2011, I studied a Diploma of Makeup Artistry in Los Angeles and set up a small business specialising in wedding makeup.
Now I combine my love for the outdoors with makeup and beauty to offer The Beauty Hiker as a go to place to inspire you to get outdoors and go for hike and how to look and feel confident in nature.
In my late teens I had extensive back surgery and have been left with chronic pain. I have learnt some great techniques over the years to manage my pain and still enjoy hiking and travelling.
I also wanted a space to share my tips with managing back pain too, as I know there are so many people out there who are going through the same thing and may not know they can still enjoy life if they manage it effectively.
I hope you enjoy The Beauty Hiker!
