Wow! This is my 6th year of this blogging adventure! Who knew I would stick around that long? I have seen many bloggers come and go- but I am here to stay! ;-) I might switch up things here and there and change even a little about what I blog. After all: I have the freedom to do what I want with my little corner here and I am so happy, that many of you chose to stick with me too over the years! I had a phase where I was heavier into makeup, a more natural skin care phase or a "retro-phase". But my main goal is always to enjoy my blog and have fun with it and I hope you do too!

A couple of my blog highlights:

2013 I wrote my - to this day - most read article (more than 375,000 views): How to get free makeup and beauty products!

2014 I was featured by SheSpeaks, Sheknows, The Hub and Lucky Magazine.

2014 I started a YouTube channel and my most watched video (with more than 200k views is "How to remove a mole yourself" and I have today more than 10,500 subscribers.

2015 I became "the face of dermaflage" (a topical silicone filler to fill in flaws such as frown lines or scars- read more about my photoshoot). I was also named 1 out of 100 Popularizer by Glamour Magazine.

2017 I published my first book that sums up all the tips I have, on how to get free beauty products (which was in the Amazon Bestseller list)! I was also named one of the Top 100 Beauty Blogs worldwide.
