If you're new here, I love learning and trying out skincare products and that is why I was very excited to be invited to visit Franklin & Whitman for a special event. This Thursday, I will be attending a Franklin & Whitman VIP party, but first, if you're not familiar with the brand, like me, here are five things to know about Franklin & Whitman.

Have you ever thought about how many times you say thank you in a day? A month? A year? But when was the last time you gave someone a thank you card? There are many times in our lives where we are truly thankful for someone and what they may have done for us, whether it be big or small, so why not send them something special and unique to show your appreciation.
