About Me


About Me


My name is Tianna. I’m a 26 year old California native. Born and raised near the beach, I’ve always had a love for stories, connecting with others, and the rain! Calling myself a beauty addict would be a bit of an understatement…

I blog all things beauty, makeup, fashion, and lifestyle with a unique sense of Italian Irish sassy sarcasm, laid back Cali girl style, and an innate (nearing on obsessive) love for pretty things, Halloween, film and TV, and books about futuristic dystopian societies. Original right? Yeah, that’s what I thought too 😉 While it’s true that there are many fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blogs out there, I promise you that none are quite like mine. I aim to share the unique, quirky stories of beauty and fashion brands that I love as well as my own personal experiences with the random everyday.


My pledge is to maintain an honest opinion on whatever products I review however I receive them. I will do my best to be interesting, fun, informative, and creative with my posts. I promise to never let sponsorship compromise my opinions or thoughts. I hope that you will follow my posts and enjoy reading them!

♥ Thanks for visiting ♥

The Kind of Posts You Can Expect to Find on Storybook Apothecary: 


Green Beauty Reviews

I am nothing if not a green beauty fanatic. I love all things clean beauty, natural skincare and organic makeup. I make it my business to bring you the best natural beauty brands on the market. I love trying new products all the time and sharing them with you all so you can look forward to reviews on skincare, hair products, makeup, body care, natural fragrances, and more! I’ll also share my seasonal favorites, top picks and other beauty recommendations.


Fashion and Style Inspiration

Fashion is another big love of mine. Isn’t there something so fun and unique about expressing yourself through a carefully curated outfit? I definitely think statement accessories can make or break a cute fashion look and that’s why I share all my fashion favorites, create style inspiration and outfit ideas, and review cool brands right here on the blog ♥


Makeup Looks and Halloween Inspiration

Did I mention I LOVE Halloween?! It’s my favorite holiday, even more than Christmas or my birthday. Leading up to and during the Halloween months (for me, this means late August to November 2nd LOL), I share all kinds of fun posts showcasing Halloween makeup ideas, costume ideas, recipe and treat roundups, party ideas, and tons more. Also, I’m obsessed with Harry Potter so you’ll see plenty of that as well! When it’s not Halloween, you can expect regular makeup looks too 😉


Food and Lifestyle

I’m all about healthy, delicious, and happy lifestyle. I’m not a food blogger, I know, but I AM a foodie so you can expect to see occasional recipes, foodporn, healthy living, fitness tips, and other yummy articles here on the blog from time to time.

      thank you! It’s actually darker now. it’s so hard to maintain bright red like that as much as I love it! haha. I love your blog too! Always learning something from you! :-)

      1. June 6, 2012 at 4:35 AM

        I’ve dyed my hair just about every color so I know what you mean about maintaining the color. I think my favorite was when it was hot pink. Was short lived but I loved it. Oddly enough I got a lot of compliments when my hair was that color lol dark colors definitely suit you though.

        1. June 6, 2012 at 6:50 AM

          That sounds like such a fun color! Mine is too dark to get it that light, but I do fantasize about coloring it to look like Khaleesi from GoT ! Thanks for the kind words; I love red colors most! or black, but its so hard to get out when you color it black

    Hey lady do you know what would work well for curly hair for my baby?

    1. July 20, 2012 at 6:42 AM

      Brown Butter Beauty has really natural hair care products, but I don’t know if they’re baby gentle. If anything, what’s more attainable is the Shea Moisture Baby line is really nice and easily found at Target.

    I just stopped using Wen hair products. My hair is so dry and brittle. Too long on that product. I did not think to stop and use something else. I just thought it was summer and all.

    1. August 15, 2012 at 5:20 PM

      ouch. That sucks! Never tried WEN but they’re so publicized everywhere. I would try something natural. If you want an affordable brand that’s easy to find, I like Organix. Otherwise, Aveda is also really great.

    you are extremely pretty!

    1. August 25, 2012 at 5:34 AM
