Let Us Talk About… Glorifying Being Busy

Soup of the day in a cafe on Lower Addiscombe Road, Croydon

Everywhere I look people are claiming being busy and having a dabble with every single pot is the way to being successful and a “girl boss”. Some have said to me that keeping busy helps to ease mental health issues whilst others have openly declared being busy as a sign of strength. In fact for […]

Lush’s Intergalactic Bath Bomb

I had very few expectations of Lush’s Intergalactic bath bomb when I first seen it.
