BBLicious

1. Thought I’d say a big, big, big, thank you to my blog sponsor American Apparel. Sponsors like yourself are the reason why I wake up each morning to blog (well that, and to entertain my readers too, which is really, the #1 reason why I blog, but still. haha!) You guys rock!

2. Mexico here we go! Thanks to El Porvenir newspaper in Monterrey for the lovely mention.

3. God I love my readers. Tom from the UK spent his precious time researching just to send me a very rare copy of that song I’ve been looking for since June! Remember that post? YES!! It’s the correct remix of Controversy that was used at the Christian Dior Spring 2003 show! I’m literally having goosebumps right now as I’m typing this. For realz. You gotta fast forward to 4:14 to hear the best bits, the one where Jacquetta Wheeler sashayed down the runway!! I don’t know about you but set it in stone I’m gonna play this on my ipod, autorepeat, when I mince my fat arse at the mall tomorrow.
