    5 Amazing Beauty Products to Carry You Through the Winter

    5 Things to Consider About Fashion and Sizeism

    I remember when I first saw the dress I’m wearing here- only way I could describe it is a coup de foudre! It was the perfect white dress: elegant but with a dose of sexy, a beautifully cinched waist and a darling pearl and gold circle detail that embodied finesse. The problem?
