Finding that perfect shade of lipstick. The impromptu flower arrangement on your counter. A sentimental song that moves you to tears every time.
Style. Art. Music. Expression. - These are the things that let your soul come alive, and our world would be like a big, fat, unsalted rice-cake without them.
