Another month, another memo. As I have very little time to do anything but work at the moment, it’s a rather short one*. That said, I have managed to sneak in some moments of reading, eating, drinking, screen-shopping (it’s like window-shopping, but online) ..
I’ve been trying to scale down my skincare purchases, mostly to make sure I only buy things I truly like but also because if I don’t, there will be no trip to Australia for me in December. I’m not on a total buying ban, however: I indicated in my last overvi..
