    …Once you trully discover yourself, it becomes a second nature.
    Giiiiiiiiiiiiirl, you amazes me in ways i can not even explain, yaaas, facts babe, we mostly don’t know what suits us so we keep changing from this to that and run to every trend that comes our way but still never feel good about the looks we come out with or even feel unsecured at some point, but THE THING is here, discovering yourself!!
    That phrase, is just like the root, i meeeaaan, it carries almost all this concept about style.
    You gotta be Stylist someday yoh, that passion, bless up girl, its just the beggining.
