I can’t throw high doses of retinol and vitamin c at it, and it won’t complain (thank you skin!). So, I don’t think a tiny dose of citrusy oils will do any damage. But they always transport me to heaven.

The Easy Way To Buy Glasses Online

I’m a creature of habit. I start each day with a cup of berry-flavoured tea. I always ask my hairdresser for a bob cut. And I never strayed from super thin, neutral-coloured, framed glasses.
