I met James last year and fell in love. He’s kinda scary and big and has fab tats–the bad-boy all girls dream of, even if I am old enough to be his…big sister. Yeah. That one.

Leave it to a fanged fashionista to come up with care labels for minions. You wouldn’t machine wash your dry-clean only clothes. How much more important is it to get the deets right when dealing with those who have your back…or the keys to your secret lair?
