Oh to be 21 again...

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am going out today to spend my Birthday money, i plan on getting some new clothes, a yum handbag i have seen in M&S and of course a trip to The Bodyshop and Holland and Barrett as i am now using their Dr Organics Manuka Honey range for my skin and hair.I have been suffering for a while with really bad spotty blotchy skin on my back and face.This could be hormonal because of my age!!!! according to the nurse at my doctors, lol.My skin and hair have never been better though so something is working.They are all completely organic and paraben and other nasties free.Oh and i might just fall into Lush too.
