Everybody: Hey, did you see the game last night?"  Me: "No" Sound familiar?... Throughout my 27 years, I proudly labelled myself as "not interested in sports". While my family cheered for Liverpool, I cheered for anything covered in chocolate. While peers wore their team's jersey, I was dressed in comfy knits and converse.

A tiny slice of …inspiration

    I am the type of person who seeks out the newest "self-help" book.

Reunited with eyelash curlers

Like a bold child, or defiant teen, I've resisted eye lash curlers because I was told over and over again, how great they were. I always thought I was too lazy to be bothered with the whole eyelash curling step. Pretty much every beauty blog I read and tutorial I watch, tells me it's the most… Continue reading Reunited with eyelash curlers
