My winter favourites

Ok. Officially it's still winter for a few more days. But when you're strolling through London in your spring/autumn jacket (and you're too warm when it's zipped up), and with sun shining in your eyes, the last thing you think about is winter. Screw the calendar. It's most definitely spring to me! I would like… Continue reading My winter favourites

It's usually a phase which, although very annoying… Continue reading My journey to perfect skin care
