April Flores Interview

Posted by Amanda Coban on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 In : Interviews/Features. 
Last month I had the pleasure of interviewing my favourite plus size model and adult star, April Flores 

She was an absolute dream to chat with! Sadly I didn't get the opportunity to meet her in person (that genuinely would've been a dream come true!) but we corresponded via emails over a couple of weeks.
