Another big VFM thanks to our fave girl Sharon at Domestic Sluttery for including us on their site again. If you're looking for inspiration of the clothing/design/jewellery/home/food/drink etc kind then look no further. You'll find it here for sure. And... It's really funny too!

Lots of dark chocolate, melted
