It only takes a taste…

As a type 1 diabetic, I strive for the most perfect blood glucose results on a daily basis. It’s very hard to get it right.

Did you get Diabetes because you ate too many sweets?

Last week has been a bit calmer on the job front but very interesting indeed. As I previously told you, I was modelling make up for Givenchy.

We all had a similar look, so youContinue reading “Did you get Diabetes because you ate too many sweets?”
