As a kid, I loved reading fairy tales, myths and horror stories, and just about any story that involved magic, science fiction, or the supernatural, and I still do. As an adult, I have to temper my desire for all things magical, beautiful, and mysterious with the reality and responsibilities of the modern world where career, family, relationships, health, and finances don’t follow the fairy tale trope.
But I can dream! 🙂
I like shiny. I like colorful. My blog will be about anything that interests me, like beauty products and accessories, books and movies, and whatever randomness as it comes along.
