Bikinis and bows

One day a friend of mine in Athens gave me a link with some images and asked me to help her decide which swimsuit she should buy for the summer. She was kind of indecisive. I looked at all the swimsuits carefully and I told her my opinion. I liked them all a lot but […] Read more…
