I kind of have a thing with essential oils by way of a diffuser I got a long time ago – years ago – that lives on my desk and kind of sways (dictates) the mood around me.  It’s always a good day when the diffuser is on, and anytime it is, people are going […]

Dior Summer Nails

Whether it’s raining or sunny out, Dior’s summer nail polishes are what summer nails are made of, especially this juicy colour, Pow 431.  I mean, I’m not usually one for bright bright colours, but I couldn’t resist putting this on my fingertips.

Estee Lauder DayWear Eye

One of the most common questions that I get is how to get rid of dark circles, or how to cover them up.  Some of the time, there’s no much you can do. Dark circles are inevitable if you’re not getting enough sleep, if you don’t drink enough water, or if you’re just genetically prone […]
