Hey beautiful people.So,I decided to ask Jennifer the hairstylist/make up artist why my hair is tinting and she went straight to strong UV rays over here and the humidity.I hadn't even thought about it at all.I decided to silently check out other people's hair as I walked around and I was so surprised to see so many people with tinted hair.It did seem though like they are okay with it or maybe they have no idea what to do about it.She recommended I buy a revlon conditioner with sun protection ...

Hey guys.how many of you look at your one and only's closet and just fall in love with his shirts? or maybe you spend the night and the following day you have nothing to wear? maybe you had dinner and spilt wine on your top then what?

I rarely dress up a pair of shorts.You will probably find me wearing them with a simple blouse or t shirt and a pair of flats.For the first time ever,a bag actually dictated my outfit...this particular outfit to be exact.I usually choose the shoes,jewellery or ...
