Venue Review: Eternel Clinic Facial

It is always very important for me to take great care of my skin and get a facial every few months.

Dear Diary: What Are We Teaching Our Girls?

Just the other day I was invited to a “high-profile” child fashion show. I don’t want to delve into that many details and get myself into trouble and mention the brand, but I was really angry with the answers the “celebrity” provided the audience with. Which makes me wonder…WHAT are we teaching our future generation […] Read more…
