I’ve just had a very odd facial by a therapist who wore rubbers gloves. I didn’t come away feeling as relaxed as I would like. Mostly I spent the time thinking that I was a bit icky to touch. I understand why she felt like that. I have a cold sore on my top… Continue reading The rubber-glove facial
I had an aha moment this week about dancing that I wanted to share. We recently signed up for a hip hop class because our friend is running it and we wanted to support her.
