It’s where you begin every day; where you get prepared for the unpredictability that lie ahead. A place where there’s no chance of wasting your morning scouring the cupboards for your non-clumpy mascara, your brushes falling into the toilet, or your partner’s shower steam ruining your just-curled hair. I’m talking about a little place called the vanity.
