Because I Said So is Back

October 20, 2008

As some of you may know, I recently made a move to the fashion capital of the world. I have been spending so much time looking for a job and spending time in the city, that my blog posting frequency has suffered! Sorry to my readers who have been checking back and not finding updates- I will be doing my best to write more often again!
