    Your face is the definition of beauty. I cannot get over how photogenic you are. The phrase “the camera loves you. ” truly was invented for you.

    You are more beautiful than any film star or model that I can think of.

    Cheers, you lucky girl. :)

    Gud vilken läcker look, du är så fin och duktig. Ser att du ofta använder produkter från thebalm, har du testat deras tinted moisturizer? Såg att min favoritbutuk har ett supererbjudande på denna. Och jag är så sugen på att köpa :) har hört att den ska vara bra :)
