It’s A Drugstore Look

Bella Breakdown I have never been the person to spend more than $30 on a makeup product. Even having had admit to spending $30 still makes me cringe. I personally believe there’s nothing wrong with being a little cheap in the makeup department.

Comfy Comfort Food

We can also have a really poor relationship with food, rationing ourselves and hating what it may or may not do to our bodies.
