“This Smells Like My Vagina”. Oh yeah, you read that one well. I can also be blunter and put that more directly, but I feel like we understand each other. Just don’t expect too much, ok?

If you are anything like all the normal people this time of the year, your shopping mode is reaching frenzy levels.

It is the season of giving and receiving, with all the well-wishes of health, happiness and so on.
