Hey there! Jacqueline here...(former) beauty blogger turned lifestyle blogger. I'm a lipstick lover, selfie taker, shopping addict, and body positive plus size lady who loves fashion. I'm a bookworm...I love to read and collect books. Childrens and young adult books are my favorite; Happy Potter, Narnia, Roald Dahl; anything fanciful and magical are my thing. I totally believe in magic :)

I'm a Bay Area girl born and raised, that now lives and loves desert life in Tucson, Arizona (except the yucky summers...those don't count). California will always be home but you really can't beat the desert sunsets and beauty here.

I have the most adorable mini dachshund ever. Her name is Twinkie and she loves wearing necklaces and dresses, and eating carrots, rice cakes, and marshmallows.

On ABrilliantBrunette.com I share little bits of my life, likes, and everything in between with my readers. Beauty, plus sizefashion, food, a bit of inspiration, some random chit chat, and the occasional post about places in Tucson all make up what you'll find here.

Way back when this was a beauty blog it was featured on a few websites that you can read about here.

So...read, subscribe, and enjoy!

I look forward to getting to know my readers.
