As Valentine’s Day Approaches…

I love Valentine’s day. I look forward to it. I start looking forward to it as soon as my birthday is over (30th of January in case you want to send me belated wishes). I look forward to it even more than I look forward to my birthday. A lot of people who know me are…

Daily Jewellery Day 18 to 25
