Today I celebrate 25 days of not being on my business Instagram account. We've queued up our posts on a scheduling app that automatically uploads for us and Blazin'Squad check in once a day or so and throw up something on the Stories.

It is I, Countess and I am back from my annual leave where I spent my days in my second home of Amsterdam. I know that Blazin'Squad are nervous about coming back to work because there is something about me getting past the anniversary of my late husband's death and my brain switching on to some evil plans so they are fully anticipating *something.*⠀
