G-string, tanga, cheeky, hipster, bikini, boybrief, boyshort, and, of course, hi-waisted AKA granny panties. The options are there for all body types and sizes. And, plenty of times, what we gravitate toward as young twenty-something hopefuls could drastically change...
This is not a feel-good post about how I finally learned to accept my love handles or my stretch marks. This is literally a post about my skin, and how, through trial and error, I have found solutions to...
The COVID pandemic of 2020 started a fashion revolution. Well, at least for me, it did. As a professional in the assisted living business, I’ve been lucky enough to be working throughout every phase of lockdown, still needing to...
