    September 15, 2014 at 3:30 am // by

    After seeing the feedback from last month’s bra and dress guide, I thought it would be nice to talk about the other basics that go into creating the perfect look – and that begins with what goes underneath.

  • Simple DIY Oatmeal Face Mask

    September 10, 2014 at 4:00 am // by

    I’ve tried all sorts of face masks and DIY beauty routines, but in the end, sometimes those basic home remedies are the most effective.
