WHY THIS WEBSITE:
My readers asked me constantly what was my beauty routine on the road and how I managed to keep my skin healthy and my body in shape over 40.
Since one of my many passions is beauty products (and chemistry) I decided to combine them to create a website that could be helpful for women and men of all ages, but especially for those with more mature or problematic skin.
I love researching new formulas, testing devices, and makeup, and reporting the results to my readers so that they can benefit from my experience. I feel useful and it’s fun. My goal is to always be honest and direct when talking about beauty in every shape and form.
If you are looking for someone who doesn’t beat around the bush and tells you things as they are, you’re in the right place and I hope you will stick with me!
I’m also creating a private group to freely talk about beauty and makeup between us ladies, come join us to ask questions about your skincare routine, a new device or procedure you want to try, or simply to connect with other amazing women all over the world! Click HERE to register!
WHO IS CLELIA?
Hey, I’m Clelia. Born in 1977, I’m 45, destined (hopefully) to become many more. Everyone defines me as “crazy,” but in a good way.
Ah, before starting to talk about who I am, I’d be delighted if you want to follow me on social media! Here are the links to subscribe:
I should also create a Youtube channel because several people asked for it, but at the moment, I am not yet comfortable in front of the camera. I hope to start it soon! I have one about my trips, here it is!
At 35, I was living with the perfect boyfriend (on paper) in London and earning my honest living by working as a Production Coordinator at Burberry London. The perfect job (on paper).
And then, one day, just like in the “Sleeping Beauty” fairytale, I woke up without the prince’s help. In my case, I woke up from a nightmare life I had imprisoned myself with my own hands.
I finally realized that the life I was living was perfect in the eyes of everyone, except those of the most important person: MYSELF!
When my then-perfect boyfriend asked me to marry him, I had a very strong panic attack. Not exactly a reaction that a man on his knee dreams of getting.
At that moment, I realized that I had two options: To stay trapped in a life that did not represent me at all, only to follow society’s standards and make friends and relatives happy, or to create a life that would make me at least proud, and happy at times (because…raise your hand if you have a perfect life).
I chose the second option, albeit in total panic. I gave up everything: my boyfriend, my house, my job. In front of the incredulous eyes of friends and relatives who thought I was crazy.
And I also ended up on an article in the Huffington post for this decision, getting a fair amount of insults too, but that’s part of deciding what’s best for you rather than for society, I guess.
I sold everything I had, from clothes to TV and even my beloved car. I also saved around $ 16,000 and booked a one-way ticket to Bangkok in 2013.
I wanted to travel, discover the world and its people, and open my horizons as much as possible. And I did it! Like a normal person, without being rich, sometimes making massive sacrifices economically and personally.
SO HERE WE ARE, YOU KNOW A LOT ABOUT ME NOW, I HOPE I’LL HEAR FROM YOU SOON! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND DON’T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE IF YOU WANT TO STAY IN TOUCH.
