Happy New Year From Pink Manhattan!

There's no symbolism intended here...just that New Years is the biggest and most important holiday for the Japanese, plus I've decided I LOVE the scent of roses, even if I'm very particular about them. Reviews are coming soon...thank you for your continued support!
