Over the last couple of years, I’ve developed a love for lipsticks and skincare. I’ve made friends with salesladies, brands, and other skincare fans. That’s why, with a little nudging from my friends (thank you, you know who you are), I’ve decided to start writing about my experiences.

“Sammy, when I die and you’re speaking at my funeral, you have to say this in your eulogy: ‘When my lola was still alive, she always told me, Sammy I can never live with you'”
Whether this was said affectionately or not remains a mystery to me.
TRUE OR FALSE. In order to be an expert at something, I need to start developing my skills in something related to that particular field. I need to try it out.
