Twitter-Style Reviews #3

280 Character Limit Too much. We have been given too much. The whole fun of Twitter was trying to fit two whole sentences in without compromising on grammar – this post is only at the halfway mark!   Ok, so Twitter pretty much RUINED the concept of my favourite series on my blog to date…

24 Things I’ve Learnt Before Turning 24

1 – It’s not the tea and coffee you don’t like – it’s the milk! Black tea and black coffee ALL the way. 2 –  Eyebrows are important. You can spend hours on your make-up, but if you do nothing to your eyebrows, your face will always look unfinished. 16-22-year-old me should have learned this…

Rash/Eczema Flare-Up Skincare Solutions

I’ve always had eczema all over my hands, but occasionally it creeps onto my face too. There I was, two nights ago minding my own business, watching Crufts, when my forehead started to itch.
