  1. she’s gorgeous. i have that gold top thing but it doesn’t compare to the way she wears it :)

  2. some of that stuff that the doctor said to do seriously sounds like what NOT to do…antibiotic ointment? alcohol??

  3. “Definitely do not pierce any cartilage, such as the ear. The ear lobe is acceptable.”
