Last week, Divya from Flavour Fiesta and I did our first Beauty Eats Live event and we were utterly thrilled that it was so well received. We had so much fun chatting about all our beauty-approved ingredients and why they were good for the skin.
Divya from Flavour Fiesta and I are scrambling to get everything ready for our first Beauty Eats live event tonight! For those of you who are not able to join us, don’t worry – we will be posting a video of the event next Wednesday! To minimize the extra cooking that we have to do, [...]
