Toddler Life: Introducing the Star – KP

Let me introduce my nephew, Kaine, (KP). He’s two years old (three in two weeks) and the highlight of my life. I have no idea what I was doing with my time before this child was born. Above is my favourite picture of us, we sat one day taking selfies and he copied every face…

I’m Disabled and I Wear Make Up, So What?

The Nude Lipstick Edit: High End

I know we’re in Autumn and everybody is talking about berry, vampy lip colours (and I’ll get to it, that post is coming soon) but as much as I love them, I have a deep, passionate love for nudes. I gravitate to them, I hear them whispering sweet nothings as I pass a beauty counter,…
