Empties July 2018

So, I'm back again with my empties. July was hot hot hot! so makeup was sliding off my face and I resorted to using very little.

Empties – April 2018

Might be because I spend way… Continue reading Empties – April 2018

Discovering Ole Henriksen Skincare

I don't know if you have the same kind of experience as me - you're always seeing brands in stores and on-line that catch your eye and you make a mental note to try them and then you're distracted by something or someone else.
