Letter to the Millennial Princess
This is the freaking 21st century and us, godmothers are here to ensure you get to the top. But for heaven's sake, don't ask us for a glass slipper when we wave our wands for you.
Be cool, and ask us for great 100Mbps internet, Super-fast laptops, chic business suits or a domain name to yourself.
Remember three things:
Save yourself when the story ends and learn to live happily ever after by yourself
Strong is the new pretty and
Thou shall be badass
We're waving our wands now...
Make your wish!
With love and sparkle,
