Going somewhere is good. Falling for something is good. Leaving is good.
Stormy weather just keeps going. I’ve been busy getting a manicure on a grinding wheel. Also got some paperweights polished.
Testing The Beardcap by VÍK PRJÓNSDÓTTIR. All their products are made of Icelandic sheep wool. I’m also a big fan of their THE SEALPELT ( SELSHAMURINN )! Test result: 5 stars
