About Me

[Updated Jan 2016]

Hi everyone! I'm Sharlynn and I'm from Singapore. From age one till about 15 I lived in various countries around south-east Asia with my family due to my parents' work. Hence I've got friends and acquaintances in all areas and corners of the globe and not so much in Singapore itself! I've got a background in Culinary Arts and Food Service and currently am a slave in the F&B industry in Singapore.

The Blackmentos Beauty Blog started after being encouraged by my best friend Anna years ago when I was about to start High School. She knew I loved and excelled in English and anything that had to do with writing and told me in an off-handing comment to blog. 

I made my first post in April, 2011 but started blogging regularly as of June that year! All things beauty related have always fascinated me to the point where I've owned products without even knowing what they were for when I was younger!
