I have been working as a Make Up Artist since 1999 and as a Beauty Editor since 2008. In January 2011 I launched Beauty-boks: a blog in which I hope to inspire you with news, special tips and back stage footage from this very exciting industry. Thanks a lot for visiting Beauty-boks. If you want to get in touch, please do so here!

Today is not just any other Tuesday, it is the 24 January and a year to the date since Beauty-boks was launched with its first ever blogpost! This is it. And what a coincidence Marilyn Monroe was mentioned twice with exactly a year apart. I say it like she would: 'What the hell!'

So how does one celebrate this special anniversary? I will admire these lovely old happy photos, learn from Marilyn's witty and wonderful words of wisdom (such as: “Ever noticed how 'What the hell' is always the right answer?”) and perhaps treat myself to one of these limited edition framed photos from Sonic Editions (fabulous gifts!).

Then later I will go see 'My Week with Marilyn' in the cinema, have a few glasses of wine and probably end up coming home tipsy (wearing a brand new red lipstick that I'll only wear once), thinking it's a brilliant idea getting peroxide curls and a tattoed beauty spot.

So, as you understand, I fully and completely dedicate this day to the beautiful blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe. That's the least thing I can do considering the lovely cake she made back in the fifties for the future celebration of Beauty-boks' first anniversary! ;)


“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” -M.M.


“Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together.” -M.M.  


“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” -M.M.


“It's not true that I had nothing on. I had the radio on.” -M.M.


Now this birthday song was unfortunately, unlike the cake, not dedicated to Beauty-boks, but what the hell ;)
