I missed out on so many things because of my work. Sometimes I see teenagers hanging out and going to the movies and I get so jealous.
I don’t care if a guy has money or not, the only thing I care about is his personality and heart.
Fashion is a serious business and it can be quite stressful at times but it is also very glamorous and fun.
