Ducks, Iced Tea & Photography Club

Beauty: 5 Fragrances On My Display Counter

There are thousands of perfume brands out there some fads, timely, favourites, some not so much.

Weekly Day And Night Time Beauty Routine

Trying to concentrate on my skin with a weekly slash biweekly routine as a result of having lots of breakouts lately to see what works and what does not work for me.
