And you can apply for the candidate for next month too! Thank you so much! 🙂 The cooler weather calls for layering. Which comes in especially handy for today’s outfit.

    How to wear a striped dress There are a lot of people who don’t like wearing stripes, especially vertical stripes. I love stripes and wear them quite often. But for a petite person like me, there are a few tricks that will help us to pull off this chic look: 1.

    Leopard top and cutoff jean shorts

    You mean between these lines? So, I had to learn to drive a car after I moved to America. Most of you did that when you were still in high school. Here I was, an adult living in another country, not very comfortable reading English yet and sitting in the driver’s seat of a car for the first time. My husband thought he’d be the perfect teacher for me since he had grown up with cars and had a lot of miles of experience. There’s a saying that experience is a great teacher.
