Copy These Styles And Look Fabulous Wearing Them: Part 2

#Fashion

Beautiful skirt!

When it comes to fashion, the brand of clothes you are wearing doesn't always matter as long as you are looking like a million dollar in it/them.

Sometimes, with the help of a great tailor/fashion designer, you can wear any style you so desire.

Many a times you look at a dress, skirt, shirt etc and love it but when you look at the price tag, your shoe tend to run faster than you. That ought not to be so. You can still look fabulous in your own way and yes even with English/corporate wears. But how?

Where Are Those Who Believe They Know English?

However, if you are a first time mom, no one will tell you these things:

We all know who Serena Williams is. She is practically a household name. She is a "King" in sports. She wins almost all the tennis games she plays. But she had been unlucky when it came to love.

Many thought well everyone is allowed to dream.

From Being A Poor Orphan To A Well Respected Queen

#Life

When her parents died at a young age, she might have thought to herself ''who will ever treat her well and adore her like a daughter''. She probably thanked the heavens when her Uncle chose to adopt and treat her as though she were his own. 

She was poor but contented...Does she have a choice not be? 

Minding her own business while the Heavens were working on her behalf. Heaven was arranging a miracle that seemed like a lie for her...

But what was that miracle?
