Blog: Leonie BarrieHappy holidays from just-style

Leonie Barrie | 23 December 2013

As 2013 comes to an end, the team here at is taking a well-earned break. The office will be closed from 24 December for the annual Christmas and New Year celebrations - but we'll be back at our desks again on 2 January 2014.
