CoCo at work

Oh, dear. Summer vacation is over and it's time to get a new edition of the Nugget out. I'm getting my human right on it.

Although we may miss those warm, languid days of napping and waiting for dusk when the tasty critters come out, there's no need to let the onset of fall get you down! It's a chance to freshen up your color palette and accessories with items a bit warmer and more snuggly than for summer but not quite so toasty as in January. Let this be an opportunity to shine forth with a new autumnal YOU!
