What inspired you to create Small Bits of Loveliness?

It was actually one of my closest friends who inspired me to start writing my own blog. I always showed interest in beauty and I loved talking about makeup and skincare but I never thought I’d be good enough or interested enough for people to read my blog. I did like the idea of having my own blog but if it wasn’t for my lovely friend and her encouragement I would probably never have done it. I will be forever grateful for her support.

What’s your ultimate goal or big dream?

I wish to run a successful business in the beauty community - either working for my myself and collaborating with others or working for a natural and organic brand/company. I don’t have a specific goal, my only wish is to remain in the natural and organic beauty realm. One of my dreams was also having my own organic skincare line, which indeed still sounds very appealing but at this point it’s not my no.1 dream. Above all I simply wish to be happy and fulfilled, in my professional and especially personal life.

How would you describe your skin?

I would describe it as combination, sometimes combination to normal. I have some problems with hyper-pigmentation and redness, sometimes also blackheads.

What's your favorite ingredient in skincare?

I always have a soft spot for products containing turmeric. It’s so brightening, has anti-inflammatory properties and it just really works well on my skin. I love incorporating turmeric into my diet too.

Which Wabi-Sabi Botanicals product do you reach for most often?

Lately I’ve been really enjoying the Balancing Act serum.

Why do you love it?

Because it’s lightweight and it helps to balance out my skin. I love using it together with The Offering Facial Mist, which is another favourite of mine.

What’s your ideal #SelfCareSunday?

Going in nature & on hikes, either on my own or with someone special. I’m so lucky and grateful to live in a place where I can go outside and in a minute I’m already in a forest. I also really like to stretch, do some yoga and meditation, which unfortunately I’ve been so inconsistent with. An ideal self-care Sunday wouldn’t be complete without a warming bath (only in winter), a nurturing face mask and Netflix.

Beauty is...


If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

To be able to teleport myself! It would be so amazing to transport myself in mere seconds to the other side of the world. Sometimes I wish I could do it when I only need half an hour’s drive to home haha.

If you could stand on top of a mountain and say one thing that every woman in the world would hear, what would it be?

Be brave and take no BS. You are beautiful and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
