Best of The Beauty Inbox 2016

by ,

I think it’s safe to say the year 2016 will go down as the year of seismic global changes. The passing of Brexit, the electing of Donald Trump as US president and the demise of Kimye have all helped shape this post-truth year.

I faced my own post-truth year in 2016 when the realities of juggling full-time work, a family life and a blog took its toll and I was forced to slow down. Despite this – and the global turmoil – it’s been a good year for TBI. Here’s the best of the best from the last 12 months. Enjoy!
