My first real perfume was the same as many girls who grew up in the 80s, Anais Anais by Cacharel. In the same way as that rosé-wine called Matéus tastes too sweet for me now, the classic scent from Cacharel stopped working as anything but a beautiful summer memory. Now there are new summerfavorites.
I’m sitting at home working as the rain is pouring outside and dreaming myself back to the little cliffside village Positano at the Southern Italian coast. The tiny vertical city on the Amalfi Coast will always remain as a paradise for me where it clings to the rocks with its faded houses and steep stairs lit by old lamps in wrought iron that gives them a perfect romantic tinge. The scent of citrus trees, the salty ocean mixed with the warm terracotta is a memory I brought home with me in a bottle of perfume.
We are in constant search for more time, while we fill the time we actually have with more time-consuming activities. Therefore we yearn for more energy. The cosmetic industry wants to meet peoples needs and now Lancôme is introducing a skincare range with the appealing name Énergy de Vie.
If I should pick one thing I will pass on to my readers based on my experience as a beauty editor it must be the value of a clean skin.
Norwegian spring water in spray-cans has become a sought after beauty-serum for both Norwegians and fashionistas worldwide.
I have great respect for people who manage to make a living from what they are passionate about. Beauty entrepreneur Cecilie Egeberg is one of them.

After a few months in hibernation my blog is back. With a new design and lots of new energy I want to talk about beauty with anyones who’s interested.
I intend to present some beauty entrepreneurs on this blog. We seldom think that there are people behind the products we use every day. Some have actually had an idea, a plan and got the products produced.
