Wearing 17 Sundays dress and shoes from boohoo.com

Yesterday an article on Stuff mentioned that size 18 is the top seller at New Zealand department store Farmers.

My skin is looking pretty good after a few weeks of my new skincare routine

I was pretty lucky when I was a teenager – I had good skin and didn’t get many pimples. For me, my skin issues came later. In my 20’s my complexion was all over the place – sometimes it was dry, sometimes it was oily, and I had lots of breakouts.
