I've always suffered with dry skin, but the recent cold snap, stress and sitting in a heated office for 10 hours a day seems to have made the problem worse. 

I'll soon be switching up my routines ready for the spring and summer months, but I thought I'd share the products that have really helped my dry skin through the winter, for anyone else who is also struggling!

[PR PRODUCT] Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Cleanser

This is a recent one to my collection, but it's SO GOOD. It's the only cleanser I've been reaching for for the last few weeks, because I instantly saw and felt a difference in my skin from the very first use. The texture is creamy and feels lovely on the skin, but it's still fairly lightweight so I feel like I can use it morning and evening. After having real issues with my make up clinging to dry patches on my skin over the course of the day, since adding this cleanser into my routine, that problem has pretty much cleared up. Loveeeeee!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner

This toner is bloody gorgeous, it feels like a huge drink for when my skin is dehydrated. My skin can be a bit sensitive but this is really gentle and doesn't irritate at all. It's a little thicker than the toners that I've used previously, but absorbs fairly quickly and just leaves the skin super-soft.

[PR PRODUCT] Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll definitely have seen me race about the Daily Microfoliant a lot. It's an absolute staple in my skincare routine and I can't see that changing any time soon! It leaves my skin feeling brand-new every time I use it, getting rid of all of the dead skin cells every time makes it feel so lovely and soft!

Glossier Moon Mask

I am honestly obsessed with this mask. I picked it up on a whim on the Glossier website, and I'm so glad I did! I wouldn't be without it now. I just pop it on for 20 minutes when my skin is feeling dry and dehydrated and the difference is amazing. My skin just drinks in alllllllll the moisture, and always feels so much better for it!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Intensive Moisturiser

This is without a doubt my favourite night cream EVER. It's really lovely and rich, and sinks into the skin so well, and I'm guaranteed to wake up with softer skin in the morning.

[PR PRODUCT] Lily & Loaf Bedtime Cream

The Lily & Loaf night cream is another new product to my routine, but ever since it landed on my doorstep I've been reaching for it every night since. While it's a light, almost mousse-like texture, it adds so much moisture to my skin. I love popping on a generous layer before bed and letting it absorb over night and letting it do its thing, waking up with super-hydrated skin in the morning. And it smells like a spa which is just dreamy!

What are your favourite skincare products?

This bloody pandemic. It's changed everything, hasn't it? Work routines, commutes, social norms and even beauty routines.

Even though I've been going into the office as normal for lockdowns 2 and 3, I've definitely noticed some changes in my makeup and skincare routines that began to shift in lockdown 1 and have continued. My obsession with skincare has grown so much, I think that being at home all the time has really encouraged me to embrace my natural skin and take care of it. And with me not leaving the house much except for work and the supermarket, there are a fair few products that are gathering dust on my dressing table and bathroom shelf, which I do every so often look at longingly, wishing I had the need to use them. So I'm going to give them some love! Do you spot any products that you've been abandoning too?


Eyeshadow Palettes

When I first went back to work in July, I was still using my eyeshadow palettes on the daily, and I loved it. But lockdown 3 has made me less inclined to put that much effort into my make up for some reason! Now would be about the time of year that my lovely Spring palettes, with their pastel hues and pretty pinks start to make more of an appearance, but instead they're just sitting there unused. And while I am a bit sad about that fact, I just can't be bothered! One day, when I can go further than from the car to the office!

Full-Coverage Foundation

Okay so there has been the odd day where I have worn a full-coverage foundation for work, either because I'm having a bit of a breakout, or I feel like my foundations are being neglected! But as a rule, I'm just not feeling it! I tend to save full-coverage foundations for nights out, or dinners with friends, or cocktail nights (sob, I miss those!) but lockdown has given me a new-found appreciation for letting my skin breathe without foundation on. But it's such a shame, there are so many foundations that I love and I'm just not getting to use!




Fancy Perfume

Oh Marc Jacobs, how I miss you! I save my favourite perfumes like my Daisy Dream Forever for special occasions, but I just can't bring myself to count Friday office days or sitting in my living room watching the Avengers as a special occasion! I got a fresh bottle from my other half for Christmas and it's barely been touched, and I'm longing to use it! 



Lipstick

The AMOUNT of times I've picked up a lipstick, gone to apply it and then remembered that I'm about to put a mask on so there's no point. Sigh. I can't stand the thought of getting lipstick smeared all over my face and all over my mask, plus my lips are so dry with the cold weather, it's easier to just pop on a lipbalm and be done with it. But how I miss going on a night out wearing a classic red lip!



Self-Tan

I did tan all summer last year even when we were in lockdown, and I don't usually bother in the winter anyway unless I'm going out. But because we haven't been able to go out, I haven't even used it on the odd occasion, and I miss it! I love getting a little boost from having a bit of a glow, and I'm itching for the spring months to come so I can start tanning regularly again!

What beauty products are you missing in lockdown?

This whole concept for a blog post would probably have worked MUCH better if it was a 'My favourite reads of 2020' post, published in January... But never mind, better late than never, right?

I've been reading a lot in the last year. I've always been a bookworm, but lockdowns, cancelled plans and slow days on the sofa have meant that I've been devouring books at a rate never seen before (not by me, anyway!) SO I thought I would share some of my favourite reads from the last year, the ones that have made me laugh, made me ugly-cry, kept me up until 2am and the ones that left me feeling forlorn when I turned the last page.


A Man Called Ove - Frederik Backman

Ove is the quintessential angry old man next door. An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block principles only he cares about, and visiting his wife's grave. Ove has given up on life. After a boisterous family moves in next door and accidentally flattens Ove's mailbox, an unlikely friendship forms.

'A Man Called Ove' was the first book I read in 2020, and while it took me a good 75 pages to get into the story, I remember finishing it with tears running down my face on the train home from Birmingham. The more I learned about Ove, the more I loved him. It's a tale of loneliness, friendship, love and growth and the other characters around Ove are just so endearing that you can't not get stuck into the story. 

The Flat Share - Beth O'Leary

Their friends think they're crazy, but it's the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy's at work int he day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time. But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven't met yet, it seems this flatshare is more complicated than expected...

The Flat Share got a LOT of hype, and I'll be honest, I was skeptical when I started that it was going to be a bit over-the-top-cheesy. And yes, it is a bit cheesy, but it's like a warm, rainy day rom-com, hug in almost 400 pages. I fell in love with Tiffy and Leon as characters instantly, rooting for them the whole way through. I love watching their characters develop both separately and together, and O'Leary isn't afraid to tackle sensitive issues such as emotional abuse and mental health and she does so beautifully. If you're a romantic at heart and you haven't read The Flat Share yet, you need to!

The Cactus - Sarah Haywood

Meet Susan Green: a prickly, independent woman who has everything just the way she wants it... Yet following the loss of her mother and, implausibly, the prospect of becoming a mother herself, Susan's life is about to become somewhat messier.

'The Cactus' has been widely compared to 'Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine', which I personally loved but I think people tend to either love it or hate it. If you hated it though, still give 'The Cactus' a go because it is honestly wonderful! Susan is forty-five and unexpectedly discovers she is pregnant. Soon after, she loses her mother, and between fall-outs with her brother and getting used to the idea of her own impending motherhood, the perfect world she has built for herself begins to unravel. Susan had me chuckling out loud all the way through with her unique view of the world and everyone in it, her lack of understanding for social norms, and her candid thought processes as she tries to find her way through the new situations she ends up in. A truly heart-warming story with a unique character that you can't help rooting for!

Queenie - Candice Carty-Williams

A darkly comic and bitingly subversive take on life, love, race and family, Queenie will have you nodding in recognition, crying in solidarity and rooting for this unforgettable character every step of the way.

Queenie is a twenty-something living in Brixton and caught between two cultures, not always knowing where she fits. All while nursing a broken heart, trying to make an impression in her career and battling with her mental health. There was so much in Queenie's story that I could relate to, while there was also so much that I was learning for the very first time about what it means to be a Black woman in Britain. Queenie herself is funny, relatable and just wonderful, you can't help but feel her pain when she is heartbroken, laugh with her, and cheer her on as she goes through the story.



How to Stop Time - Matt Haig

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old history teacher, but he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen it all. As long as he keeps changing identity he can stay one step ahead of his past - and stay alive.

'How to Stop Time' is probably in my top three books I have read this year. Not only was I hooked by the story immediately, I just fell in love with Matt Haig's writing style. It's a beautifully written book, and it was so easy to devour. The story itself was so original, and it was wonderful to be whisked between Shakespearean London, to Paris, to New York and back again. I would recommend 'How to Stop Time' to anyone because it's just amazing.

The Beekeeper of Aleppo - Christy Lefteri

Nuri is a beekeeper; his wife, Afra, an artist. They live happily in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo - until the unthinkable happens and they are forced to flee... and they must embark on a perilous journey through Turkey and Greece towards an uncertain future in Britain. 

'The Beekeeper of Aleppo' is the most moving, heartbreaking novel I've read for a long time. Perhaps made all the more heartbreaking by the fact that Nuri & Afra's story reflects the stories of so many real-life refugees escaping war-torn countries, which is something I was so conscious of the whole way through reading. Lefteri's writing style is nothing short of gorgeous, a story of love, loss and tragedy, and I didn't quite know what to do with myself when I finished it. I was left desperate to know the rest of Nuri's story!

Homegoing - Yaa Gyasi

Effia and Esi: two sisters with two very different destinies. One sold into slavery; one a slave trader's wife. The consequences of their fate reverberate through the generations that follow: from the Gold Coast of Africa to the plantations of Mississippi; from the missionary schools of Ghana to the dive bars of Harlem.

When done well, I love books that switch between different narratives and come from different characters' perspectives, and I think Gyasi does it so beautifully in 'Homegoing'. The way that each character's story threads into the one of their child is wonderful, and there's so much to learn in there about the slave trade, racism and the oppression that Black people have been subject to for generations. Definitely one to put on your list for your anti-racism education.

After The End - Claire Mackintosh

Max and Pip are the strongest couple you know. Only now they're facing the most important decision of their lives - and they don't agree.
With the consequences of an impossible choice threatening to devastate them both, nothing will ever be the same again.
But anything can happen after the end...

Oh my goodness, make sure you have tissues for this one. My heart broke over and over again whilst reading. Max and Pip are just both such likeable characters, and even more likeable as a couple. Without spoiling it, they have to make a decision that no parent should ever have to, and you can't help but wonder what decision you would make yourself. I was 100% hooked to After the End, because I loved the characters and I was desperate to know how their story ended!



Girl, Woman, Other - Bernadine Evaristo

From the top of the country to the bottom, across more than a century of change and growth and struggle and life, Girl, Woman, Other follows twelve very different characters on an entwined journey of discovery.
It is future, it is past. It is fiction, it is history. 
It is a novel about who we are now.

I LOVED this book, I think it's another absolute essential if you're looking to expand your anti-racism reading. The writing style does take a bit of getting used to, but once I got accustomed to it I really enjoyed it. As well as racism, Evaristo tackles issues like class, relationships and abuse, and does so in a way that is sensitive but eye-opening and very raw. All twelve stories intertwine throughout the novel which I loved, and I felt like although fictitious, I learned a lot about just some of the prejudice and issues that Black women in Britain have faced in the past and right the way up to now. 

Away With The Penguins - Hazel Prior

Veronica McCreedy lives in a mansion by the sea. She a loves a nice cup of tea and a good wildlife documentary. And she's never seen without her ruby-red lipstick
Although these days Veronica is rarely seen by anyone because, at eighty-five, her days are spent mostly at home. Alone.
Veronica doesn't have family or friends nearby... And she has no idea where she's going to leave her considerable wealth when she dies.
But today... today Veronica is going to make a decision that will change everything.

This book is nothing short of wonderful. I think I finished it in about three days, I just loved it so much. Veronica is your typical grumpy-old-lady character, but she endeared me straight away with her funny little routines and her viewpoint of everyone around her. She's stubborn, gutsy and knows what she wants, and I loved it! The story idea is so original too, and it features penguins! What more could you want?? It's such a lovely easy read as well, I'd definitely recommend if you want a light-hearted book to get stuck into.



Where the Crawdads Sing - Delia Owens

For years, rumours of the 'Marsh Girl' have haunted Barkley Cove, a quite town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. 

Okay, I know this book gets a lot of hype, as well as a lot of mixed reviews. And if I'm being totally honest, I didn't get into it straight away, it wasn't until about a third of the way through that I really got invested in the story. But once I was hooked, I was hooked and I just couldn't wait to find out how Kya's story ended because she's just such an intriguing character. One that was worth the hype for me!


 




That's right, it's time for another empties post!

I love sharing the products that I've used up with you every few months, and this time round I have quite a few summer goodies to talk to you about! Shall we dive in?

St. Tropez Self-Tan Face & Body Mists

Now I'll be honest, I'm not the most experienced fake-tanner. In fact, I have to get Dan to help me because I'm pretty rubbish at the application. So for me, any tanning products need to be SUPER easy to use, and as streak-free as possible.

I picked up the Purity face mist and body mist in a Latest in Beauty box, and after only ever using mousses I wanted to see if these would be any easier to use. I am CONVERTED. I've used these up and bought the full-size.

I tend to use the Purity body mist once a week or so, simply spritzing it on and following it up with a mitt to make sure it's evenly applied. The following morning I wake up and I'm glowing. I personally think that using a mist makes the product a lot easier to control and to ensure you're avoiding streaks. It doesn't transfer at all, and you get a really natural-looking, golden tan which I love. I even get comments on how good my tan looks (this never happens!)

The Face Mist is equally amazing too! I pop on a few spritzes as the last step in my skincare routine before bed, and I wake up with a sun-kissed face. No faff in the morning with bronzer if I don't want to!

Pixi Glow Mud Mask

I bought this as a mini a good few months ago now, and I've just bought the full-size because it's become a firm favourite in my mask collection! I love using this when my skin is feeling a little bit congested, or to tackle a break-out before it really takes hold. It only takes 10 minutes to work and leaves my skin feeling soft, spots are less angry and my pores look reduced. I also love the fact that it's easy to rinse off, some of my other mud masks are super stubborn and a pain to remove, but the texture of the Pixi offering makes it so much easier!

Shop here.


Glossier Bubblewrap Eye & Lip Cream

I remember buying this after reading loads of mixed reviews, so I was a bit nervous about potentially spending £20+ on an eye cream which was a bit naff. BUT I really liked using it. The texture is feather-light, which made it perfect for use morning and evening, and I definitely saw a difference in the puffiness of my under-eye bags when I used it. It also absorbs really quickly which was great for when I was in a rush!

Shop here.




Bare Minerals Skinlongevity Serum

You might remember seeing this serum feature in my Lockdown Beauty Favourites post. I've just used up the full-sized bottle, and I absolutely love it. I can see the difference in my skin as soon as I apply it, I instantly have a dewy glow to the skin, and it preps my face perfectly for make-up (or makes my skin look super-healthy for a no make up day!) Pair that with its anti-ageing properties, and it's pretty much my perfect product. 

BUT whether or not I repurchase it remains to be seen at this point, and I'll tell you for why. I spent £38 on a bottle, which I didn't even use every single day. The bottle recommends two pumps, but I only felt like I needed a pump and a half. The bottle was gone in around a month. And while I'll always spend a little bit more on skincare if it works, but for that kind of price, I do expect a product to last a bit longer than four weeks. I might still repurchase at some point, I think it depends on how much I'll miss it over the next couple of weeks!

The Inkey List Bakuchiol Moisturiser

This moisturiser came as a recommendation from a friend, shortly after I found my very first wrinkle (it was a traumatic experience!) I know retinol products have been the 'thing' for anti-ageing for a while but I was worried about starting to use them too soon and want to ideally wait until after-30 to start incorporating them into my routine.

So I ordered Bakuchiol, which is a more natural alternative to retinol. I love it because you can use it both morning and evening, which is a huge no-no when it comes to retinol. It's a light moisturiser and doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy. But I'm happy to report that it's done the job, my pesky little frown line on my forehead has definitely looked less prominent since using this and no other little buggers have appeared on my face yet! And all of this for only a tenner, yes please!

I've been thinking about investing in an electronic cleansing tool for a long time after hearing several bloggers and influencers rave about them. But as I do with all slightly more expensive purchases, I dilly-dallied and pondered on it for weeks, wondering if using one would actually make that much difference to my skin.

A couple of months ago PMD Beauty got in touch asking if I would like to test their cleansing tool, and I jumped at the chance! I couldn't wait to give it a go and see if it was worth all of the hype.

So, what is the PMD Clean?

The PMD Clean is a smart cleansing device with built-in 'Sonic Glow' technology. It delivers over 7000 vibrations a minute, designed to cleanse, firm and lift for a deep clean, aiding anti-ageing and giving you radiant-looking skin. 

There are four settings - two for cleansing, and two to use alongside your moisturiser to promote the anti-ageing benefits. Each vibration setting varies in intensity so you can choose depending on what you feel your skin needs.

The PMD is dual-sided, one side has small, silicone bristles which help to cleanse, and the other side has a facial massager to use with your moisturiser.


How do I use it?

I've been using the PMD Clean every day for the last few months. I tend to use the cleansing side with my second cleanse, after removing make-up. I put the cleanser directly onto the PMD Clean, apply to damp skin and rotate in circular motions to try to get into the pores.

I'll then go about toning, exfoliating and applying serum, then I'll use the PMD Clean again with my moisturiser, again rotating it in circles on my skin to aid absorption.


What did I think?

I'll level with you, I had no idea what to expect from this product. But I've loved the addition of it to my routine!

Having the silicone bristles to cleanse with has made it feel like I'm getting a much deeper cleanse than I would if I just used my fingers. And honestly, it feels soooo satisfying after a long day of wearing a full-face of make-up, my skin always feels so fresh after using it for a good minute or so.

And I LOVE the facial massager with my moisturiser. Not only does it feel super-relaxing, I'm finding I'm using less moisturiser because it's so good at aiding absorption that I don't need to overdo it on the product to feel like I'm getting the benefits.

I can definitely see a difference in my skin after I've used it too, it looks more radiant and there's a definite glow there!



So, if you started reading this wondering whether or not you should take the plunge and buy an electric cleansing device, my answer would definitely be yes. I genuinely can't think of a single negative thing to say about the PMD Clean, and I'd definitely say it's worth the £89 price tag, which is actually cheaper than other brands out there which sell a similar product! 

I'd definitely see a purchase as an investment, because it's silicone it'll last you ages, it's easy to clean, waterproof and hard-wearing.

Using it has been a game-changer for me and I'll never look back now!

You can shop the PMD Clean through their website and through Look Fantastic.

You'll have seen the adverts all over your Instagram and Facebook feeds. The magical, influencer-backed Pink Clay masks, hailed as a 'miracle' by bloggers, YouTubers and Feefo reviewers alike. Infused with Australian Pink Clay, a new cult ingredient which draws out toxins and impurities, the masks boast promises of sorting out large pores, banishing acne scarring and making your skin glooowwwww. 

So, what's the catch? Well, the price tag isn't exactly purse-friendly. And with prices averaging between £30-40 for a jar, I must admit that when I first looked it up I had to close the browser with my eyes watering.

After watching the ads coming up on my social media for months on end and a lot of deliberating, I decided that I just had to get my hands on one. Partly because large pores has been a recent skincare struggle for me which I really wanted to sort, acne scars have been issue for a long time, and partly because I just was so intrigued by whether or not the claims on the ads were true!

I did a lot of research into which brand of Pink Clay to go for. In the end I got it down to the two main ones, Sand&Sky or Alya Skin. I went for Alya Skin in the end, based on the fact that it was a good tenner cheaper for more product, and the skincare sets were better value for money. 

I know there are a fair few dupes out there which are much cheaper, but I decided to go for high-end based on the fact that I wanted to see if the social media claims are true! Let me know in the comments if you've ever used a dupe and what you thought!

Giddy wasn't even the word when the parcel arrived! I picked up the Complete Set which contains the mask, a micellar cleanser, an exfoliating scrub and a moisturiser. I haven't tried them all yet though so I'll only be reviewing the mask for now.

I've been using the mask once a week for the last two months or so. I've seen in other reviews that people have used it up to twice a week but I started with once, mostly because I didn't want to use it up too quickly!

The first thing to say is that the Alya Skin mask is really lovely to use. It smells gorgeous, spa-like with just a hint of floral. It's a really lovely texture too, it's quite creamy but smooths onto the skin really nicely and definitely has a luxurious feel to it. 

You use it like any other mask, apply to dry skin (I've been applying with a brush because there's no way I'm wasting even a tiny little bit!), leave to dry for around 10-15 minutes, and rinse off with a face cloth. 

Okay, let's get down to the crunch; the results.


Let's start with the positives. My skin definitely looked more glow-y after using the mask. It felt softer, and as if all of the crap had been brought out of my skin without feeling too harsh like other clay or charcoal masks do. 

The biggest improvement I've noticed as a result of using Alya skin is my skin texture. I've mentioned before that large pores and uneven skin texture is something that I've only really experienced in the last six months or so, and I've not really been sure on how to deal with it. But as soon as I rinse off the Alya Skin mask, my pores look tighter and my skin looks so much more even. I'll be honest, I've been pretty down about my skin in the last few months but using this mask has helped to bring my confidence back!

BUT, I didn't see any difference in my acne scarring, especially not the larger scars. I would have been very surprised if it lived up to the claims of getting rid of acne scars completely but there wasn't really any change at all. 

So, do I think it's worth the money?


If you have the money to spend, fancy a splurge and suffer with large pores - yes. As someone who has tried all sorts of things for uneven skin texture, I would say this is the biggest difference that I've seen as a result of changing one thing in my skincare routine. And for me, paying £30 to get some confidence back when I've felt self-conscious about my large pores is definitely worth it. 

If your main concern is acne scarring, honestly, try something else. Based on the fact that I saw no difference at all, it definitely isn't worth the bold claims around banishing scars that you see in the social media ads.

With that being said, I would definitely repurchase the Alya Skin mask. I really look forward to using it every week, and part of the claims are true! Yes it's expensive, but I'm only around a quarter of a way through the tub as it stands, so a whole tub will probably last me 6 months or so with once-a-week-use. which doesn't sound as bad!

Have you ever tried a pink clay mask? I would love to hear what you thought in the comments!

Facebook has become a social media platform that I love to hate. No matter how often I roll my eyes whilst scrolling through, or mutter under my breath that I should just delete the app from my phone, I can't quite resist having a nosey through my feed every day. 

I find myself having the same thoughts almost every time I open up the Facebook app, so have a look through and see how many you relate to!

1. Okay, let's see what crap I can find to mindlessly scroll through...

2. Aw cute, a friendiversary! Wait... 8 years?! How has it been that long? When did I get so old?!

3. Ooooh, friend request! Let's see... Someone from primary school who I haven't spoken to since year 6! 

4. Still gonna accept though because, y'know, nosey.

5. I love my Facebook memories popping up with nights out from seven years ago, it reminds me of a time when I was fun.

5. Oh look, another engagement announcement. Lovely. 

6. Wait, am I jealous? No, no. Not jealous. Or am I?

7. No, definitely not jealous. I don't even want to get married yet anyway!

8. BUT LOOK AT THIS FRIEND OF A FRIEND WHO JUST GOT MARRIED OMG THE DRESS AND THE CUTE LITTLE BRIDESMAIDS... I'm fine.

9. Wish my nan would stop sending me Candy Crush requests. I thought that died in 2013. 

10. Oh goodie, another chain message from Aunty Sue. No, Aunty Sue, I'm not going to keep the candle going to raise awareness for the protection of donkeys.

11. Not that I have anything against donkeys.

12. Oooh, advert for that face mask I was talking to my friend about the other day. Must. Not. Buy.

13. WAIT. How did Facebook know I was talking about it?!

14. Life is a conspiracy. We must trust no-one.

15. Bloody hell, another baby announcement.

16. How am I already at the age where everyone around me is having kids. OMG am I going to be an old mum?!

17. Just gonna go and order my Zimmerframe now ready for the school run.

18. Oooh, Buzzfeed reckons it can tell me which Disney princess I am based on my star sign and favourite biscuit, GO ON THEN.

19. Aurora?! Disappointing. I'm clearly a Belle.

20. Screw it, I'm going back to Tik Tok.
