Hotel Review: The Sakala Resort Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia

Hotel Review: The Sakala Resort Nusa Dua, Bali, Indonesia

Frivolity: Chanel makeover

Here’s something new about me, I’ve never purchased a single branded item for myself in all my twenty-something years. Something which I (sort of) rectified on Friday. I wanted to treat myself to something pretty and I popped by the Chanel makeup station at Takashimaya […]
