    I’ve been searching all over this page and I can not for the life of me figure out another way to contact you cause I don’t understand the contact form(?) So I guess this is the only way to go.
    I’m having some problems with my tumblr, or well not really but I would really appreciate if you could help me. It’s about the cosmetic appearance on my page, if you’re kindly enough to help me – please hit me up with an email so I can try to explain my problem. Would mean a lot!
