Adult friendships and finding your tribe.

I’ve spoken previously about friendships, introversion and about how I sometimes struggle with finding the confidence to approach people and start friendships. The post in question I wrote back in 2016 when I was really struggling with not feeling like I belonged. Fast forward two years and I’m in a much better much happier place. So what’s changed?

How to make a rented house feel like a home

Veil Cover Cream: High Coverage Camouflage Foundation

A few months ago I was invited along to an event in Middlesbrough as an introduction to Veil Cover Cream. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend as it was a little too far for me to travel on a weekday evening. However, the ladies at Veil were kind enough to send me a sample of their product to try at home and see what the fuss was about. HOW DOES IT WORK? Veil Cover Cream isn’t…
