Obsession Du Jour

Obsession Du Jour

Take Us To The Tropics

Take Us To The Tropics

Bathbombs are a great pasttime of mine. As a child, it was an exciting experience all about the fizzies and pretty colours, but as I’ve become older it’s become a vital part of my self-soothe routine for when the world gets too much. Not all of us can afford the…
