Hello, everyone!

Yes, it’s true! My blog turns two today, March 11th and this is actually my 151st blog post! Two years ago I bought my domain name, chose my hosting plan, used a free theme and published my first post. The first post was really the automated one, published by WordPress, and I then published my first introductory post on March 25th. Anyway, I like to set my blog’s birthday on March 11th.

Last  year on days like these,

I was planning to celebrate my one year anniversary. Unfortunately, unpredictable things happened. Due to personal circumstances out of my control, I missed the date and therefore, never actually mentioned my blog’s birthday. But now, this year, things are doing better so I thought I would share with you my two years of blogging and also host this giveaway to thank you for being with me.

I won’t post ”What I have learned these two years of blogging” neither I will post statistics and goals for the years to come. Truth is, I don’t want to plan anything, I only want to focus more on the beauty category, makeup and skincare, for they are the posts I enjoy to write the most. Recently, I have started working (part-time) as a makeup artist, something I have studied and used to love years ago and now anything beauty and mostly makeup related, will be my priority for the blog.


I love this little corner of mine on the internet,

I love reading your comments and see that many of you are coming back again and again. I am really curious every time I see a new reader, where is he/she from, what brought him/her here, what is he/she doing in his/her life, etc. And I love reading your blogs, as many of you have already set your own space in this digital world.

Well, shall we pass on the giveaway now?

I think it’s time! There are a few beauty products I have recently bought (or gifted) which I tried and really loved and these items I want to share with you. How can you enter this giveaway? Just leave me a comment below and follow me through my social networks (any of them or all of them if you want to). Alternatively, you can follow my blog via email, I won’t spam you, don’t worry. And that’s it!

One winner will be chosen randomly either from my blog subscribers or from my followers. The giveaway will be running from March 11 to March 25. It is open internationally, I will send the gift wherever you are.

And here are the products:


GOLDEN ROSE Metals Sculpting Palette (read my post here, this a new palette I bought only for you)


WET N WILD Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan PaletteRosé in the Air 


SEPHORA COLLECTION #Lipstories Lipstick COLOR: 03 Oui!

I would like to thank you everyone and each of you for your kindness and your support through my blogging journey. Good luck to everyone! And a special thank you goes to my good friend Emilia, who supports my writing, translating or correcting all my blog posts. Emilia, you are the best!

As always, thank you for visiting and have a great day!
