For the Ladies : Whats in my closet ?? Latest Haul


Hello my beautiful readers ,
I have seen the current trend and hype of shoes, bags, makeup and dresses (.) Can you think of anything more to add to this list? I guess some of you have not figured out what I am really talking about…
how about the finer things which gives a statement of a look to be either feminine or wild? Professional or regular?

Grinch of New Year

Yet we “move on” because these disasters, death, trauma happened elsewhere and […]
