style book: fashionable inspirations

“Don’t fall in love with him,” her brain murmured.
“I want to,” said her heart, longingly.
“He’ll ruin you.”

Personality of the Week: Coco Lili

Coco is a YouTuber & Blogger specializing in beauty, fitness and is an amazing motivator!

I think the best part of this is to see industries crossing over which Coco does single-handedly. She’s made beauty and the law of attraction compatible and accessible to all her followers. Here is someone that encourages us all to live beautiful lives, inside and out!
