Basil and Oil 2.0

As you might’ve seen me tease on my facebook and instagram pages (if you don’t follow me yet, why wait?), Basil and Oil has been completely redesigned. New me, new blog. I gotta say, it took quite some time to make it look like this, so I hope the hard work paid off. Take a look…

And This Is The Part Where You Find Out Who You Are
