Victoria's Secret Lip Plumper
Admittedly, I am a lip gloss junkie. I've tried dozens of products, but I've finally settled on Victoria's Secret Very Voluptuous Lip Plumper. At $18, it's a bit more than I'd like to spend on lip gloss, …

I lived by Angel.. in Islington and I absolutely LOVED IT! It was like the yuppie place to be...any night of the week if we wanted to go out to the pub.. there were TONS of places and restaurants to go to... it NEVER got old.. i love that place so much.. plus it was a 25 minute walk to work since I worked by bank. yeah working in banking was alright... it was true though I always HAD to wear heels out for work drinks cuz I was always around guys and didn't like being the shortest one (i'm like.. 5'2). But other than that.. I'd definitely work in London again!
December 14, 2008
