The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Truth

The Good

I don’t often review products, but every once in a while I stumble upon something so fabulous, I decide to share it with the world. Today I bring you Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish.

Anyway, for the first ten years of my life I sported a very short, not-so-cute (or at least that’s how if felt back then) pixie haircut. That’s me… top row, second from the right. read more
