    I found out about you from the Flare article! :) Usually I flip through that magazine so quickly and don’t pay attention to the boring articles, but this one caught my eye, glad it did!

  5. Oh crap! I forgot to pick up the metro.

    Thanks for taking a picture of it! I like your necklace! Is that a special picture you took for metro or just one of your regular pics you gave them?

  6. No it’s a nice photo!! :) That must have been weird for you to see yourself in the paper!! :)
