If there is one thing in this world that can lift me out of a funk like nothing else – it’s music. I think it’s heavily connected to my creative side. I have a very vivid imagination and can relate to so many song lyrics they almost become personal. There’s a line from a song for […]

This from a girl who watch people open Shopkin blind bags on YouTube, so we’re not really talking about too much Freddy vs Jason (which by the way […]
