    Hallo gorgeous lady, congratulations on a big and wonderful 2012 and can’t wait to see what you get up to in 2013!

    I remember when I first started seeing your 30 braids in 30 days on instagram – it was so clever and enjoying to follow. Then you started Nail Romance – OMG!

    I hope that you have a great break. I myself hope to work out how to do some of your fab hair styles to share how BusiChics can have a Hair Romance at work too 😉

    See you in 2013! x
