2017 most used: makeup

It’s definitely bordering on being too late to post this, but the ‘flu rather got in the way of my grand plans for starting 2018 with numerous (and timely) posts. Still, hopefully better late than never, this is a short round-up of the makeup bits that I whacked on my face the most frequently in […]

Current Favourites #2

It’s current favourites time! I’ve finally moved into our new flat in Edinburgh and things are beginning to feel a bit more settled. My commute is a lot longer, but the sea is 15 minutes walk away, which more than makes up for it. Also, bus time = reading time, which should hopefully help me […]
