  3. Ladies, ladies, ladies, I have just had so much fun, thank you. And while shopping for some new clothes the other day, I applied the SoA principle to narrow down my options - it definitely helped to focus the search and ensure that everything would colour coordinate well! I look forward to continuing to interact with you ladies through this fabulous, creative, inspiring blogosphere.
