The Mixstress Workshop | Turmeric & Oat Face Mask

With the exception of those super high-tech glycolic, hyaluronic or lactic acid laced face masks, there are other skincare items I’d personally rather splurge on simply because I believe that absolutely nothing beats a mask born from the ingredients sitting in our…

Self-Care

After reading this piece by one of my favourite contemporary poets, Yrsa Daley-Ward on ThandieKay, I got to thinking about my own self-care routine. The fast paced and at times overwhelming flow of life in London paired with the mentally and…
