Title: Beautyful and Charming results from LHCb

The LHCb experiment at CERN is dedicated to the study of matter-antimatter asymmetries and rare decays in the Beauty and Charm sectors. It provides important tests of the Standard Model of particle physics and searches for new physics effects, complementary to the direct searches by the LHC general purpose detectors. Following an introduction to the LHCb experiment and its physics potential, recent results from the broad LHCb physics program with emphasis on flavour physics will be presented. This will include a discussion on how the results compare to the Standard Model predictions, as well as a brief outlook into the future of LHCb and its expected performance.
