I do loves me some raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens but these are a few of my favourite things: pink carnations, Coco & Lulu nail polish in “Riviera” and a pretty box to hold my decorative ribbon.

The makeup remover and the lip gloss were in a makeup bag a girlfriend gave me for Christmas and the remover has been such a lifesaver! I’d always used baby oil to take off my mascara but it had […]
