One of the first girls I befriended mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. As a friend, I didn’t know how to respond. I didn’t comprehend. Nor did I want to emotionally but I knew I had to be there for her.

And the new whip, when I go fast as a horse, I got the trunk in the front”🎵- Cardi B
Cardi B latest song, ” Bodack Yellow” came to mind when I received a full-size sample from Influenster. As I jammed to the song, I open the packaging of the Yves Saint Laurent Matte Foundation.
