Mentally Preparing for Lockdown Easing

Mentally Preparing for Lockdown Easing

In the UK, we’re still technically in lockdown. We can’t go into peoples houses, not supposed to travel unless for essential reasons, but we’re allowed a pint in the pub (outside seating of course).

Let’s Quarantine Together… Then What?!

The dilemma this generation is going through. But is it rational? The pandemic has been the cause for many relationships falling apart.

Foundation shade names may seem meaningless. But what's behind the terminology? I found myself on the QVC website, and I saw an offer on makeup, so I couldn't resist.
