HOT Chat: Natasha Skunca of Make Me Iconic

I’ve been compiling my Christmas presents cupboard recently (yes I’m very organised when it comes to gift-giving) when I came across the Skipping Girl mug and tea-towel I bought from Make Me Iconic Iconic back at the Magnolia Square Market back in August.

HOT: Espresso 3121, 98 Balmain St, Richmond
