About us

The idea that is Beauty & Mess came into being late in 2012, and was made real in early 2013. The founders and editors of this webpage are Martina Medur and Vesna Vodanović, who had their own blogs before Beauty & Mess was launched (those blogs are no longer active and some content was published on Beauty & Mess blog).

Since January 2015. this blog “lives” on two addresses – Croatian (Martina) and Swedish (Vesna). Continue reading if you want to know more about Beauty & Mess editors and blog content.

Vesna Vodanović has been a long time (beauty) blogger and since the beginning of 2015 has been living in Stockholm, Sweden. As a true beauty blogger who loves to try out new brands, she saw this as a great opportunity to write about her experience with various Scandinavian brands (and some other brands) that weren’t available in her homeland Croatia.
