  2. 😂😂😂 This is a lovely introduction to your blog.
    I think you’re super lucky to be able to use the same towel for your whole body and still have such lovely skin! 😊

    I can so relate with 12 because I’ve always thought about it. I really hope we don’t all have to keep singing. I would definitely sleep off at some point.

    I also believe in Juju.
    Now I’m going off to read some more of your posts!


  3. I think we’re all weird in some way because I can relate to at least a third of the things here. I chew my swallow, hoard plastic bottles for no apparent reason and my skin care routine is just “baffing”. I’m also doing a Masters now. It’s nice to meet you Alma.
