Much like Proust’s madeleine, sometimes little things just go click in your head and bring back long forgotten memories. I was happily eating peanut butter M&M’s when I picked up a red one and it reminded me of something we used to do in primary school. Me and my friends, being the girly girls that we were, obviously wanted to imitate our mums but were not allowed to wear lipstick, of course. The solution? We discovered that by licking the red colouring on the candy’s shell we could then dab it on a our lips and pretend we were wearing real lippy! How silly were we?
