Beauty | FOTD: Smokey Eye & Cranberry Lip

As a nice follow on from yesterday’s blog post about gratitude and memories… I really enjoyed a lovely meal at one of my favourite restaurants, Chiquito’s, at the weekend.

Apologies for the slight delay in getting my February Favourites posted; it’s always a busier month for me, especially with my birthday falling at the latter end of it.
