April Empties : Skincare

I'm slowly using up my skincare collection, here's what ran out in April. I mentioned that I'm being careful with what I buy for my skin, yet I somehow wound up with a bit more product on my hands than I needed.

Time Perspectives : Moon Cycles

I'm trying a new thing and feeling a little wee-woo about it, but here we go!  One of the things we talk about in psychology, and by we I mean Philip Zimbardo, is time, and the way that we perceive time. There are 6 main ways of thinking about time: Past-focused, positive (you remember the… Continue reading Time Perspectives : Moon Cycles
