Own Who You Are

Own Who You Are

Last night, for the longest time in 'I don't know how long' I spent about three hours on Skype with two girlfriends. We talked. A lot. About many, many things including social media and perception.

Skincare: Road To Recovery

Skincare: Road To Recovery

Last June, my skin decided to really wild out. I had apparently developed two types of eczema and acne.

As someone who [...]
