CRYSTAL CLEAR, MY DEAR

When I saw Angelina Jolie’s emerald earrings I knew I had to have them. Since I did not have her funds at my disposal I was forced to find something cheaper.

WHITE AS SNOW

The whole town is covered in a white, fluffy blanket of snow. The trees stagger under the weight of it. How you react to these white flakes is a good indicator of your age.
