A lot of the food I eat is perfectly fast to prepare and yet has not an unhealthy ingredient in sight. So I thought I’d ironically steal the name and share all these quick and … Continue reading

What makes me smile with Colgate #MAXWHITESMILE

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens… ♬♬♬ When it comes to a smiley face I’m more than a giver – even though this blog makes me look a little more pouty than I am in real life !

 Let me tell you the story of me and my (imaginary) pink hair… I’ve wanted pink hair for… FOREVER. It’s not such an outrageous thing over here where the streets of London are covered in a rainbow of self-expression, but where I grew up, in the south of France, it was the worst thing I could have done to my appearance. I have discussed pink hair with friends time and … Continue reading
