This is Life, not Heaven you don't have to be perfect.
When I look in the mirror,I just want to like myself...And if I like myself,then I look good.
I think God has a plan for me, but I don't think it's in this life.
Fashion is not art. Fashion isnt even culture. Fashion is advertising, and advertising is money. And for every dollar you earn, someone has to pay.
Dear book, this is another day in my life. A life is like a book. A book is like a box. A box has six sides. Inside and outside, so, how do you get to what's inside? How do you get what's inside, out? Once upon a time, there lived a very pretty girl, who lived in a beautiful box, and everybody loved her.
