I’m really excited to share this article with you from the October issue of Glamour. First of all, because there’s nothing wrong with a little self-promotion (hehe) and also because it marks the beginning of the campaign around my book… And finally because I wrote the article myself, especially for Glamour.
Love x Style x Life comes out in just about a month!!! I can’t even believe it…
