Usually, I share my new favourite things around the middle of the year (around my birthday), but we have been so busy with various events and other work (and have had other giveaways running as well) that we decided to leave it for a bit until things had settled down. This year, I am going all pink. Partly because I adore pink and partly because it will run over Breast Cancer Awareness month. It...

At times, when I was snowed under with work (and now that I am also getting back into my studies), it was good to...

One evening, while chatting on the phone and packing things neatly, I accidentally put the palettes back in the opposite direction. I was about to correct my mistake, when I realised . . . they...
