Airdrie has been an avid beauty consumer ever since she was old enough to go to the mall. Childhood memories include Lip Smackers, Devon Violets perfume, and Cover Girl Shine-Free Pressed Powder. Her “happy-place” is at the spa, and she would go there weekly if she had the cash. The L&L Podcast is a labour of love. She earns her spending dollars as a high school mathematics teacher in Vancouver, B.C. She has two daughters, and a bloggable husband. Airdrie has been described as impulsive, energetic, and “far too worked-up.” Airdrie has a love-hate relationship with UV-Gel Nails.
Kerry Anne has been interested in cosmetics since her grandmother gave her free reign on her makeup cabinet sometime in the mid-1970s.
Some of her all-time favourite products include MAC Lady Bug lipstick, Laura Mercier Oil-Free Foundation, and Avon Solid Perfume seasonal brooches from her childhood.
When Kerry Anne isn’t blogging, podcasting, or tinkering around on the internets, she’s a mom, a wife, a friend and a full-time university student.

How it all began: our history
Air and KA combined both their love of beauty products, and their disdain for media-driven unrealistic cultural beauty expectations for women, and channeled it all into Lip Gloss and Laptops. Makeup rocks, but we like to call attention to the fact that spending $30 on mascara is not going to change your life.
Lip Gloss and Laptops began in March of 2006, and is a podcast and blog about beauty products, and beauty culture, and the cosmetic industry. In August 2009, KA stepped-down as co-host, and now makes appearances periodically as a guest-host.
We’re also on Facebook. Join our Facebook group for Lip Gloss and Laptops, where we have discussion forums and the chance for fans of the show to chat.
