The Person Behind Up close & Awkward

So you found me. Lucky you!

So a little bit about me..My name is Karen, or you can call me Kern (whatever suits your fancy). By day, I'm a chemical analyst and by night, I'm batman a blogger. Why did I decide to start this blog? I felt like my life was static, never changing, just the same 9-5 day. So I thought, "Hey! Lets start a beauty blog, there aren't many of those out there!" (I hope you can hear the sarcasm). But really, I started this blog to share my love of make-up and generally talk about the things that interest me. Just like most youngins (although I feel old) , I'm a confused 20-something that is trying to find who I want to be when I "grow-up". I'm hoping this will help me. So come with me on this journey, and hopefully the things I write about are useful to you. 


xo, Kern.
