I... am stressed. I am a retail supervisor at Christmas. Do I need to repeat, I am stressed? Heck, I love my job but anyone who's worked in retail, and especially anyone who's been a member of management in retail at Christmas time, will know... it is not easy.

Volume IV launch (Gorilla Perfumes)

Today is the day that Lush have launched Volume IV (volume 4) of their Gorilla Perfumes range.
