What’s new on the blog + a rant about age perception that surprisingly ends in a green beauty make-over.

Tomorrow is the start of the 2-day Natural Cosmetics Conference I’m attending. It’s an international event for the natural cosmetics industry, and I’m looking forward to the talks and discussions about the new and highly debated European ISO norm, conscious consumers, POS trends and much much more. If we’re allowed to live-tweet, expecto patronum expect live tweets over at @BEAUTYCALYPSE.

A reader pointed out recently that she had trouble finding the interview posts. Please find now the interview banner in the left column, right under the search field. I hope this helps! 🙂

October marks the beginning of a new posting schedule: Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays are the jours fixes. Of course, if there’s more to say, I’m not bound to shut up on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays! But there are guaranteed posts on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Let’s fly with this calendar for a month. And you tell me what you think. Deal?

Last but not least: I had the opportunity to rave about green beauty and to rant about age perception over chez Daily Plate of Crazy:

I’m in my thirties now and it’s a bizarre age. I often say that as I move through life and age, my next big anniversary keeps turning into the new 18. When I turned 30, it was declared the new 18! When I turned 35, the new 18 had moved towards 40, and I was caught between the new 16 and the new 18. On my 40th birthday, I wonder, will I finally reach the legal age?”

While I normally don’t guest post (mostly due to a lack of time but frankly, often simply missing the added value of such a cooperation), I was honestly happy to be part of D.A.’s Makeup Makeover series, being able to discuss something relevant about age and beauty as well as to suggest a few fabulous, organic & natural beauty brands and provide a few tips and tricks along the way. Hopefully it’s a fun read!

Do check it out: Makeup Makeover: Beautiful and Ethical – and let me know your thoughts! 😉

    • Woohoo 🙂 Thanks for dropping by Mademoiselle! Yes, I felt like mentioning the small changes, so that more readers take notice. (Will change and tweak more, so A LOT of work ahead!)

    • YES! Very! (There will be more to come, right now I’m a bit like a kid in a candy shop. Oh the possibilities!)

    • Thank yooooou! 🙂 I must say I often just open it and admire the colour without wearing it. It’s so intense, like a classic red, and my type and colour doesn’t wear it greatly in casual clothing. A sheer veil looks bland on me. So can only wear it if it was for a gala night or something. Which I rarely attend, haha 😉

        • That’s brilliant. I too have a few shawls I like to meditate over but it would never occur to me to wear them (again) – conventional silk and all, but some are important because of a person who gave them to me. Then again, it was a pleasure to trash some because of the person who gave them to me 😀
