It feels as if i only turn my head for one second, and the next thing i know it’s already June. I was taking a little break and the next thing i know I haven’t really post anything real on this blog since October.

If you spend a lot of your time on the internet, you’ll realize that more than ever, cats nowadays might be in their closest status to they were in Ancient Egypt. Maybe this is the reason catwalks are called cat walks in the first place. Because fashion lovers are cat worshipers?
