    How To Read More Books

    I’ve said in previous posts that I’m not one for setting huge goals at the beginning of a New Year. 20 years of resolutions later and I’m still not running marathons, boasting rock hard abs, eating organic lawnmower clippings, or greeting 5am with a green tea and a smile.

    I’d like to think that over the years (especially the last few) I’ve vastly improved my skin care routine and got a bit more of an understanding of what my skin needs, wants and benefits from.  Looking not too far back in photos I can see a difference in my naked face, so I’d like to take some credit for…
