Hey there beauties! My name is Shana Perrotta. I am 29 years old & living with my fiancé, Joe, in our new home. We live in New York with our baby girl, Roxy (shes a Pomeranian and the cutest one if you ask me- she has tude though LOL) and Olive & Rosè (our white dwarf bunnies)!

I started my blog in 2016, but really started taking it seriously these past few months! I started this blog as a way to share all the things I am interested in, and since then, my interests have broadened. Working out has always been MY LIFE. I’ve been up and down with my weight since I was 14 years old, and have been on a roller coaster journey since. I love to take unhealthy recipes & make them HEALTHY! I have also always had an interest in beauty, hair & style. As of recently, I have acquired a particular interest in home décor, so expect a lot of home content!

I have been back and forth with the name of my blog for 2 years. I finally decided on the current name, BeYOUtiful and Beyond. The root of this name comes from being beautiful both on the inside and out. Beauty comes from within, but if I can take a little time out of my day to throw on some lipstick and rock a cute outfit, I feel way more confident! Anyone else with me on that one?

BeYOUtiful and Beyond is about self love, nurturing ourselves, working on ourselves constantly from the inside and out (from eating healthy, working out & taking care of our skin)- here on my page, I share healthy recipes (an occasional cocktail or two), hair tips & tricks, home decor, beauty tips, personal style, and much more! I have a lot of great ideas in mind for B+B & I can’t wait to share them here! I appreciate you taking the time to read this and follow along, and I hope you leave here inspired in some sort of way! Grab some coffee or a Thai iced tea (my fave btw) & know that you are beYOUtiful from the inside and out!
