Wishing: I was in Cuba right now, enjoying a Cohiba or a Montecristo in a cosy Sobremesa. The life!!!
Enjoying: Photomyne – an app that scans old photos really really well. Now I have proper copies of old family photos on my phone without those weird angles and light reflections. On a mission to scan all the oldies I can lay my hands on.
Waiting: for my order from Amazon to get here. I literally just made the purchase, but I can’t wait for it to get here!!!
Liking: my black henna (peacock) done by Sybha of Henna Hub (@Henna_Hub on Instagram). I just wanna show it off! Thank you Sybha!
