Habitat West End Opens

I love a good beard. Proof: D had very strict rules not to shave for at least a week prior to our wedding. I would have preferred longer, but he complained of itchiness. I guess not making him go any longer was my wedding present to him. So what do beards...

Bittersweet Chocolate Boutique Review

I love chocklit The other Saturday I was at a loss with what to do with myself. Friends were busy or working; D was away; even my own mother didn’t have time for her favourite child (it’s true, I am the favourite. When my brothers aren’t around she tells me....

My Sweetopia Review

Fancy Cakes There is something about cupcakes that really bothers me. Or rather, there is something about how other people view cupcakes that really bothers me. A cupcake does not have to just be a pretty little cake made with plain vanilla batter, topped with some tasty yet plain icing,...
