I’ve never been one for caking foundation onto my face but nor have I ever had the confidence to completely stop wearing makeup when I leave the house. This year’s hot hot summer coupled with my constant whining about my dry skin meant that something had to change. My reluctance to stop wearing foundation came from a few problem areas with my skin. For as long as I can remember, my skin has been horribly dry. I’ve always been desperate to cover up that flaky T-zone and to fake the dewy look with some kind of glowy foundation. I have…

Seeing as my last post was almost a month ago, I thought I owed No Space For Milk a little life update. So here are a few things that have happened since I last posted because June was a pretty busy month. I moved out Last week I moved out of the best little place I’ve ever lived. It will always have a special place in my heart as the first place that Brandon and I lived together and I’ll miss its weird blue lighting in the bathroom, and the fact that it was constantly the same temperature of hell.…

At the beginning of this year I was getting married, in two week’s time in fact. The date is burned into my brain. It was going to be an anniversary date to remember for the rest of my life. And now, I’m not. The date is simply going to fade into the oblivion of the other 364 days in the year. A hard part of this whole experience is juggling other people’s expectations and opinions. When they hear that I’m not getting married anymore, they assume a relationship breakdown and that isn’t the case. We’re together and happy. Obviously I’m…
