Something about me that you might find surprising: I love crows. They are very cool birds with admirable intellect, and I think they carry themselves extremely well.
But while I think the birds are pretty bad ass, I don’t share the feeling for their wrinkle namesake – crows’ feet – which have started landing their way onto my (just) over 30 face. I lamented this unwelcome side effect of ageing in my post here. And resolved to do something about it, trying out eye creams to welcome me to the world of more ‘mature’ skincare. Continue reading
I read an article not so long ago about the modern day epidemic of busy-ness. The fact that we’re all so busy being busy, that we forget the pleasure of sitting still and enjoying the now.
