How to keep your lips happy this winter

Cold weather is simply the worst.

!QMSMediCosmetics Hand Care

Dermalogica’s Special Cleansing Gel

Dermalogica holds a very special role in my heart as it was one of the brands that got me more invested into skincare. Until I tried Dermalogica, most of the stuff I tried previous did not really do anything for my acne, but it all changed with D. For this reason, I was super excited…

The Ugly Truth

The pressure of being perfect and of doing everything in a perfect manner is becoming more and more absurd as well as unhealthy, don’t you think?

5 delicious delight recipes I am in love with at the moment

Growing up I have never been interested in food, like at all. I could not even be bothered to eat as I was more interested in playing than taking time off from my favourite activity. Now things have changed a bit, but still I am no cook. I rarely if ever cook, but that does…
