So while you’re appreciative of what you do get, you can’t shake off that feeling that it should have been better or more amazing; basically, just more!

NOT SO BASIC WHITE T-SHIRT LOOK


It’s been said time and time again that a basic white t-shirt (tee) is a wardrobe must-have for girls and guys alike, and I agree completely.

MARCH PAST!!!


If you’re anything like me, then you have ankara fabrics from months, maybe even years ago. Sometimes, you simply love a print, but don’t know what to sew with it.
