Fear and Loathing in Life

I hated camps when I was younger. I would worry constantly in the days leading up to a school or church camp; about how much I would hate being away from home, how much I would dislike the food and how I wouldn’t have anyone to hang out with. I would wish that I could… Continue reading Fear and Loathing in Life

Face Mapping and Body Loving

Last Thursday saw my sister and I at the Dermalogica store at Cavendish Square, undergoing Face Mapping. This is a unique Dermalogica process where a Professional Skin Therapist uses Face Mapping to divide the facial landscape into fourteen zones.

Cat Ladies

The other day a meowing could be heard, coming from somewhere just outside our office. I flung open the window, determined to locate the cat and maybe stroke it and keep it under my desk.
