Due to a very busy end to last year I have unfortunately been a bit neglectful of The Eve. I did have a fair excuse, in December I finally packed myself up and made the big move to Sydney... oversized wardrobe and large unnecessary magazine collection in tow. I am happy to say that I am now settled in to my little apartment in Alexandria and things are finally getting into my new routine.
