Fun Halloween Booooks…

Fun Halloween Booooks…

It’s time for some good ol’ Halloween reading, don’t ya think? I’m a sucker for all things Up With Paper*, and it’s not just because I used to work there, or the fact that they’re still a client of mine. It’s because all of their stuff is so absolutely COOL! Their book imprint, Jumping Jack […]

We visited the popular downtown area, crammed with shops, galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. I had a few must-visit shops on my list, for the sake of this blog, and I’ll be sharing those with you […]
