A few years ago, I wrote a book review about Crêpes by Suzette by Monica Wellington that my daughter Chloe had just picked up from the library. The book was out of print but I really loved collage style of the book mixing city and scenery photographs of Paris with illustrations. It's just a fantastic book! Now for our digital age, lucky for us Wellington has launched an app of the book. It's truly the book form come to life for Apple and Android devices. You can have the book read to you not only in English but also a... Continue reading

Hi Adia, I'm the same as you - I haven't tried a Clinique lipstick (aside from their chubby sticks) in maybe 15 years?! I can't believe the lasting power in this and it's not a balm type lipstick that you need to keep reapplying. Seriously, it's the best! Go to Sephora or a Clinique counter to try it out. The colors are amazing!
