A Day In The Life: Colleen

I start my day by waking up with wet kisses from my furry little friend. I usually snuggle up with her for a bit until I get up. I’ll roll out of bed around 9 or 9.30am. First thing I do is take a shower. Next, I start my beauty routine. I sit on the floor in my room in front of a large mirror. My pup Sophie always sits right next to me the entire time. Next, I do
