My fave thing about blogging is definitely sharing the wealth and showing you things I truly love in hope that you will too. It occurred to me recently that I’m still yet to talk about my absolute number one fragrance and signature scent: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb.

But at 25 years old, I feel like the end of my acne journey is definitely overdue. After speaking with so many of you on Twitter recently about effective acne treatments, including Accutane, it really settled some of the grief within me that I have carried around for over 10 years now.
