What’s the deal with “revenge surgery”? asks Patrick Bowler: our medical director addressed the growing trend for divorcees seeking cosmetic enhancement to make their ex sorry they’d ever left. A fascinating read.

We’ve had our eye on this blog for a while now, and covet not only all the lovely featured products, but also Lily herself. Will you be our friend, love?
