So What Do You Think?
Why talk about beauty now?
Well, as we are home more, we have more time on our hands to give these products a whirl. It is something that we have been talking about in depth, over here on TCF.
Even our EIC, Marie is focusing more on her skincare! Do you find yourself paying more attention to your beauty regimen? Adding products to play in and test out?
Supporting indie brands and businesses is a passion of mine AND TCF; especially being the owner of my own beauty brand AP Young Beauty Collection. We specifically kicked off our Speaking of Curves series, to highlight various indie plus size designers, boutique owners, and brands.
When you shop an indie brand you’re not just buying a product, you are supporting a dream!
