About Alice

I’m a just-turned thirty year old atypical Minnesota girl. Sometimes blonde hair, always blue eyes, with a sense of humor and nerdy tendencies. I thrive on advertising, pop culture and fashion. My latest obsession is Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock Holmes!

I Don’t Shave for Sherlock Holmes
