Annie Valentine is back, and this time things are feeling a bit different for our favourite fictional fashionista!

However, she also knows this means that she has to leave her lovely husband Ed and twin babies at home while she jets across the world to New York City with teenage daughter Lana in tow. Can Annie bring herself to ... Read the complete review
