I can remember watching The Color Purple, vaguely, when I was much much younger. I’m sure I wasn’t supposed to be watching it, and I’m pretty sure it was on post watershed.

My goodness the hype surrounding these masks, the sell out in record time, the can’t get the charcoal detox one for love nor money!

The last time I went for an interview (December 2015) I was a new mum to a four month old baby, tired, about three stone overweight, exhausted, jobless, worried about living off maternity allowance for too much longer, and did I mention tired? I managed to get myself an interview for a job I really […]Read more "Getting Interview Confident"
