The Richest of Sunlight

The blinding sunlight, sieved through the translucent window shades, lost all of its glare but none of its brilliance as it washed the walls of the living room, painting them a clean, soft white.

Sunday Afternoon

27 Things You Never Knew About Me (Part II)

A continuation of Part 1 which you can read here. 1. My fashion education started in college in midwest America. How can that be? Exactly!
