Thanks for visiting Pretty Little Grub!
About my Blog:
My name is Jen and I am both a Registered Dietitian and Professional Makeup Artist. I created this blog to talk about my passions: nutrition, fitness & makeup! Of course along with that I am going to talk about my life and adventures with my amazing husband and high-school sweetheart, Tom.
Proper nutrition fuels our bodies, physical fitness makes us stronger and makeup helps us feel more confident. I hope that through my personal stories, opinions, tutorials and advice I can help women feel more beautiful inside & out!
About my life:
I completed my Bachelors Degree at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. After completing my internship I moved to Calgary for my husband’s work. I have been working as a Registered Dietitian at a rehabilitation and long term care centre ever since. I also do contract work giving weight loss education sessions, talking to runners about nutrition or handing out smoothies! Anything nutrition and you can count me in!
I have a very simple food philosophy – all food fits. I don’t believe in “good” and “bad” foods. Food is a source of fuel for our body but it’s also a source of pleasure. I balance my life with foods that nourish and keep my body healthy but I also enjoy indulgences….especially chocolate!
I have always had a passion for makeup but I really started getting obsessed when I decided to do my own wedding makeup. I soon decided that I wanted to pursue makeup and went back to school to get my Diploma in Makeup Artistry. I now work freelance as a makeup artist doing weddings, fashion shows and photo shoots.
Fitness is a huge part of my life. I love running and have completed 4 half-marathons. This year I am training to complete my first full marathon, the New York Marathon! I also enjoy weight lifting and am currently completing the New Rules of Lifting for Women Program.
Pretty Little Grub?
Coming up with a blog name is easily the hardest part of blogging. I knew I wanted something that encompassed both food & beauty in the name. I started by writing out words for makeup & food. When I wrote out the word grub I knew that was it. Not only is it another word for food it is also my nickname! You see my Dad gives a nickname to pretty much everyone he meets and once he’s picked a nickname for you, it sticks. My sister’s nickname is Turkey, my brother is Gangster and me….I was Little Grub.
I hope you enjoy my blog. I am always open to comments, questions, etc. I will do my best to comment on your posts and respond to emails quickly. So feel free to contact me!
