“Too much” make-up?

2015/03/img_1524.jpg
I was out last weekend enjoying plenty of drinks and laughter with good friends, until we bumped into a guy from my past – he felt the need to make a comment that was totally unsolicited: “You’re wearing too much make-up, Daisy.” Luckily it was the end of the evening, I was feeling merry on cider and had had far too much fun with people I care for, and who care for me – to even really care about what he’d said, but after waking up in the morning the next day it popped back into my mind and left me soberly pondering the topic…

Beauty Box review

We recently tested out various Beauty Boxes for our feature with Cambridge Edition and Bury Edition, and my gosh we had fun – so tempting to subscribe to every single one, I mean, how nice to receive something in post that isn’t bills, junk mail and pizza menu’s (actually the pizza is quite tempting too…)
