Livinghip – new format!


Translated by Marieke Rijksen (@whisperingbold) Livinghip – new format! It’s been good and I’m done. A year on, I must draw the honest conclusion that the Livinghip webshop didn’t quite work out the way I intended. It hurts a little and is a bitter pill to swallow but it’s not the end of the world.
