LOVE UNIQLO

UNIQLO may be one of the most underrated brands out there, but for me, being big girl size by Japanese standards, it has more often than not been a lifeline. Their skinny jeans are truly awesome – my own are VERY well loved (and going a bit thin at the knees in fact). They are…

My First Brazilian

Ok, so this is where I talk about that summer fling I had with Mr Hot and Sexy Latin Lover, Rafael was his name, from Brazil – the best sex I ever had. Just kidding. Yup, we’re going to concern ourselves here not with the fictional Mr Brazil, but that beauty practice that has become…

Out with the red, in with the pink. Ichigo is out, sakura is in. Spring is approaching in leaps and bounds. I can safely say this because my crazy sensitive skin is acting up, as it does whenever there is a change of season. But this is corroborated even more by the fact that everything…
