There are so many ways of doing things a lot cheaper. So above you will see a Fluorescent tube light in the shape of the ring. This is £9.99 from amazon. It is a bright natural light lamp. At 32W and energy-saving it is perfect of these winter evenings. Now this lamp can’t glow without  ...

If I could, however, talk to my 16-year-old self, here is what I would say: 1- This boy is not the love of your  ...

It is nice to see a higher end brand in the mix like Laura Mercier, but, the credits required for these products i feel is too high and you end up buying more credits  ...
