We believe that even serious memoir can benefit from a sporadic insertion of humor—readers need some light to balance darkness.

Then, we will do a LIVE makeover in the workshop to show participants that our methods work. Hypo allergenic non animal testing products will be used. Just kidding. No products will be used. It’s a humour makeover. The makeup makeover is two doors down on the left. Just kidding again.
