ABOUT

I have always enjoyed sharing my discoveries with people. That's how Beauty Candy was born back in 2013.

ON DISCOVERIES

Being a beauty addict, I have always loved discovering niche beauty brands. Growing up in Europe, I was obsessed with European apothecaries/pharmacies and I used to spend all of my pocket money there. When I moved to NY, I fell in love with the way small boutiques were curated and always loved discovering new brands and sharing with friends. That's how Beauty Candy was born back in 2013.

 

ON SHARING

Beauty Candy has been a dream come true but I have also always enjoyed sharing my discoveries with people, whether its beauty tips, delightful restaurants or neighbourhoods I've stumbled across on my travels. My friends are always asking me for lists of where to go when they travel to places I know and I am very happy to oblige.  After I provide extensive lists of places they end up loving, many friends suggested that I create my own blog. In the past I was a bit hesitant to do this.

 
For me, sharing my journey as a mother...can be uplifting to other moms who may feel overwhelmed, a little down or not as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. So that is how Astrie’s Little Pink Book came into being, a blog about beauty, lifestyle, and most of all motherhood.

ON MOTHERHOOD

What changed my mind was having children. As a mother of 3, I know that motherhood is not always easy. Bringing up my children has been the greatest joy of my life! My kids are my no.1, my everything, but as we all know it can also be challenging and even overwhelming at times. This side of motherhood is not always acknowledged, especially in this age of perfectly edited and curated social media posts. 

For me, sharing my journey as a mother from beauty tips on how to avoid looking like a zombie after not sleeping for a week to getting my caffeine quota in a newly discovered coffee shop so I can make it through the day can be uplifting to other moms who may feel overwhelmed, a little down or not as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside.
