The Beauty in Everything

Dear Readers,

I want to share something with you. It took me a while to come to this decision and I've been writing the sentences in my head for days. Please read it, it would mean the world to me.

I decided to change the focus of my blog a bit, broaden the scope so to speak.

When I started this blog years ago the only passion I had (left) was make up. I spent all the money I had (and more) on it. I loved buying those things and it gave me joy. I've been through some traumatic stuff and concentrating on beauty products was a distraction I desperately needed.

But I grew, especially in the last year a lot happened. It wasn't pretty, but I was finally able to overcome some of my biggest demons who had haunted me for years. I am nowhere near the place of mind I wanna be, but I got a lot closer.

During this time other things became important. I realized that my shopping habits were far from healthy and rational and I stopped buying things to fill that emptiness.

I will continue to write about make up and beauty products, cause I still love them, but will broaden the topics I wanna speak about. There is just so much more than make up in life. I wanna share what happened to me and what gives me joy nowadays.

I will include literature, cause books move me and they are treasures. I will talk about my trips to the UK, about pets and finding your purpose in life. Something I still am looking for.

I also wanna talk about the physical and psychological issues I've been dealing with. I think sharing it will help and maybe you are dealing with similar issues. I will and want to talk about depression, the hard and cold truth of it and how life-threatening it can be. Just think of the horrible Germanwings plane crash that just happened.

I also have a new job coming my way, I can't talk about it in detail yet, but if everything works out and we do hope it will, it will start in October and be one of the biggest changes in my life. I can't wait to share this with you as well.

Another issue I haven't tackled is a healthy lifestyle and body. I wanna master this as well and share my journey with you.

I hope that you will stay with me, because this blog is nothing without its readers. If you're just here for the make and nothing else, let me just thank you before you leave. It's been an honour and I am grateful for every time you've visited my page.

I think the name Anonymous Beautyholic is still appropriate, cause I am still (and I think we all are) addicted to the beautiful things and experiences in life. From now on I just will cover some new areas and talk about additional topics, cause everything else doesn't feel authentic anymore.

With all my love,

Misslyn Nail Smoothies

Today I have a beautiful nail polish for you. Last week while strolling through Müller I saw the new collection from Misslyn "Forbidden Fruits".

What intrigued me the most were the "smoothie" finish polishes. I ended up taking "sweet blackberry" home and I love it. It's an incredible beautiful colour. See for yourself:

I mean LOOK at that beauty! There is some texture in it, but without feeling or being gritty like sand polishes usually are.

I absolutely adore it. :)
