If you’re one of the lucky winners to win a plane ticket, I’d love to know. I’ve also entered the contest. Fingers crossed that horseshoe up my butt still has its magical powers *wink*. Even though I just got back from Australia, I’m already itching for another vacation. I love me some London shopping. Plus the hot clubs and even hotter men also add to the appeal.
