4 Things


Some time ago Jessica from ChronicallyVintage posted a fun tag post with 4 answers to different questions about herself. I rarely post stuff about myself on this blog but it’s my birthday this week so I thought it’d be fun to do  something more personal in between the more substantive posts 🙂 I’m not going to post yet another wishlist, because how many of these can a gal have, right? (although *hint hint*, you know, you can still check out my previous ones)

If you feel like doing it, I encourage you to do so, it’s fun!
