My Sexy Summer Detox

So here is how it started… I had a shitty day. It happens to everyone. Sometimes it’s easy to think you are not good enough at life…at least for me…it’s one of the horrible parts about knowing so many talented people (but hello! not completely complaining here…it’s also a huge privilege!). I love my parents for always praising me when I was…
