‘This makes me happy!’
What does beauty mean to you? Consider this question in silence and find your own answer. To help you get an even better grip on the rather abstract concept of ‘beauty’, we have designed a series of intriguing questions specially for you. And even more beautiful: answering the questions is in itself an experience of beauty. It works like this: already thinking about beauty makes you more aware and makes you enjoy all the beautiful things around you more intensely. This is great for your mood. It will give your day a silver lining.

About the start
The social enterprise was started in the Netherlands by a Dutch communication researcher. After his side career in bodyfashion came to an unexpected ending, he took a time-out and created a survey that has been described as ‘intriguing‘ or even ‘mindblowing‘.
