Hey Beauty Buddies,
I’m sure and certain winter has landed here exceedingly early. I’m currently listening to the wind (and rain) howling outside the window as rather dramatic looking waves crash onto the shore. If you didn’t know any better you’d swear it was a mid December afternoon! I’m almost expecting the neighbours to start decorating their windows in fairy lights and snow flakes. BRING BACK SUMMER… I’m not ready yet to pack away my stripey Ikea parasol *sob* Thankfully though ladies I’m here with a much prettier ‘sky’ than the one looming above me today – yes I have thee gorgeous Skye from Pretty Pink Possum on the virtual sofa of sassiness to help cheer up our summer blues this morning.
If you haven’t already acquainted yourself with Pretty Pink Possum then do get yourself over and say a huge hello… she may only be 5ft tall but as they say great things come in small packages & Skye is a true reflection of her blog which is packed full of personality & fun filled reads. Ready to get to know her better gals? Then get yourself settled with a cuppa as we uncover a little bit more about the girl Behind The Blog…
