Happy 4th to you all!
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈI'm also celebrating today my 8th year blog anniversary! πŸ₯³ 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 in my little beauty 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 did a bunch of makeup tutorials,  even a "retro-phase" but the blog evolved now more into sharing beauty tips for women over 40 as well as giving you fashion inspiration (at least I hope so!) But my main goal is always to  have fun with my content and I hope you do too!

A couple of my blog highlights:
2013 I wrote my - to this day - most read article (more than 376K 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 is "How to get rid of frown lines between the eyes" (with more than 297K views). My second most watched video is "How to remove a mole yourself" with 254K views- btw a fantastic trick that really works. I have today more than 15K 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.

2018 I was named one of the Top 25 Beauty Bloggers over 40. I gave an Interview to VoyageATL Magazine.

2019 I was named an TOP Fohr Influencer. My blog was named Top 15 Generation X Blogs. My blog was also named Top 25 Over 40 Beauty Youtubers

2021 Most popular article from this year: I USED THE NUFACE DEVICE FOR 120 DAYS AND THIS HAPPENED!

Currently also popular on my blog: "Why my skin looks better with 41 than 37" (31K views)- though to clarify: I turn 45 in 10 days lol. 

A couple more numbers:

Here is to many more years of blogging! πŸΎπŸ₯‚
