and I use my colourless Blender throughout.


What's more? TWO of these lovely ladies have a PRIZE hidden on their blogs! There's a Camille or Ebony Stamp to GIVE AWAY, and All you gotta do is leave a comment on everyone's blogs and come back TOMORROW to find out who won! You'll have until 10 PM CST TONIGHT to enter!
