My updated skincare routine – cruelty free – Pai

Finding a brand that you love is like finding that perfect corner seat in a cafe. Once you’ve found it you wonder how you lived without it! Pai has been that brand for me. Now I warn you now I’m no skincare guru, in fact, I’m pretty lazy when it comes to skincare and makeup, so the product has to be…

6 easy ways to cut back your spending

In June 2017 I committed myself to a year-long lease on a flat in London with barely enough income to make the rent.
