Weekly Wrap Up – February 9

Happy February everyone! I hope you’ve all been having a great start to the month. Mine has been kind of insane. Work has been a lot (I’m literally doing two jobs at the moment and it feels like my brain is melting), and I’m prepping for my trip to Prague, which is IN ONE WEEK. […]
