6 Years and Turning 30

It’s hard to believe that I sat down to start writing my very first blog post here 6 years ago now. Even harder to imagine yet is how I ended up here, at the end of 2015 and turning 30.

A Natural Way to Blush All Day- Clinique Cheek Pops

I first discovered Clinique Cheek Pops early last year when they released four shades (Plum, Ginger, Peach and Berry Pop).
