There is not much I can add to this, I think the photo speaks for itself. Don’t let anybody ever tell you you don’t have the right look or weight. Our imperfections make us who we are, in a world where everybody wants to be someone else.

Beauty tip

If you have bags under your eyes because you haven’t slept enough, or you’re sick, this might be a useful trick. Put two teaspoons in the fridge, until they’ve cooled. Hold the underside of the spoons under your eyes and keep them there, until they warm up again. The cold will reduce the swelling and if necessary, you can also use a light concealer.

Noticing the details

Whether it’s about fashion, make-up or just in general, I’ve found the smaller things to be the most beautiful. For example, I just love how a simple belt can change an entire outfit, or how a little jewelry can make you stand out. That’s why I always pay attention to the details, because the littlest things can make the biggest difference.

Lemon honey mask

Lemon and honey aren’t only used as food, they also make a great face mask. It’s good for minimizing pore size, drying out pimples, reducing redness and much more. I tried it and I’m pleased about the result. All you need is 1/2 of a lemon and two teaspoons of honey. You can also use lemon oil, it works equally well. Just mix the lemon juice and the honey, until it’s well blended and apply it to a cleansed face. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and rinse off with cold water.

Attention! Don’t use it after you’ve exfoliated your face, the lemon might sting. Also, make sure you’ve thoroughly removed the mask before going out in the sun, because the combination of the lemon with the sun might cause damage to your face.

Jobs

I’ve been wondering lately; what’s the perfect job in the beauty and/or fashion sector? The answer: I have absolutely no idea, but a career as make-up artist sounds really appealing to me. It’s so difficult to decide, when there are so many fun and interesting jobs out there.

 Beautician?

 Make-up artist?

 Physiotherapist?

Aphrodite

I’ve recently taken an interest in Greek Mythology, so why not use it to fit my blog? Here is the goddess of beauty (and love) : Aphrodite. In movies she is always displayed by beautiful women and she has taken many forms in paintings and drawings too. Aphrodite is one of the more famous greek goddesses and one of my favourites.
