    I’ve been mainly trying out new recipes during lockdown. My favourite thing to make now is a sweet potato curry,: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/satay-sweet-potato-curry

    I’ve also rediscovered Stila as a brand. I’ve rekindled my love for their Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner and their Convertible Colour in Lilium xo
