Tomorrow is Friday, which is a very good thing, and I have a post planned – it’s on cupcakes. Very easily shipped cupcakes. They’re awesome – you should totally come back and check it out.

Sometimes, I think I prefer fashion solutions more than fashion trends – by solutions i mean articles like “the best button down shirts’ or “how to dress if you are
