I’m on holiday! Thank God for that! One more week and I’m sure that my head would have exploded. This must have been the busiest “school year” of my life – even more hectic than last year, when I crazily decided to finish my MA at the same time as increasing my workload and negotiating [...]

 I was looking forward to the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ when I showed this Crabtree & Evelyn set off in the upcoming Gift Guide videos, but then I saw that it was on offer at Escentual so I have quickly cobbled together a post! I have taken a quick snapshot of the vanity case with a [...]
