      Call me Sam or SamSamButDifferent!​

      I am a gin blogger and entrepreneur with the title of "The Gin Queen" because of my love for all things juniper.

      Gin is life.

      Born in South Africa but a hybrid baby mixed with Czech blood and now living in the USA​.

      I'm a performer and a model with a flair for the dramatic.

      Obsessed vintage clothing and dress up.

      It is my plight to love cats that never love me back.
