Alix Rassel

Once upon a time there was a sad, grey, capitalist girl called Alix who worked in the boring corporate rat race. Then one night, as if by magic, Princess Consuela Banana Hammock appeared to Alix in a dream and told her to ,"EMBRACE THE MADNESS!" Now Alix is a Joyful Vegan, Yogini, Buddhist who loves the Environment and spends her time Saving Animals. She also has a penchant for dressing up and an Obsession with Unicorns! - TRUE STORY..... (Well sort of:)
