You Are Flawsome!~

Today I stood in the mirror in a black and green, high necked, knee length dress that was cinched at the waist with a black and white striped belt.  Platform mary jane black suede shoes were buckled on my feet.  Purple eye shadow covered my eye lids and black mascara was applied heavily to my… Continue reading You Are Flawsome!~

Bella’s Babble’s: Saturday Edition 06/15/2019

It was, yet again, one of those weeks, where Friday came and went and there was not time to sit down and type out babbles.  Don’t be afraid, there were babbles, but they just were not formally written.
