Bitch burnt my hair and it took me a year to fix it

Black Turtleneck Gray vest

A bleaching got my hair severely damaged about a year ago. And after that, and together with the precarious quality of the Berlin tap water, my hair just got fried. As in, deep fried.

It takes some courage

Perfect freckles

Ten years ago I met who nowadays is my best friend.

It was at a concert in Spain. When I saw her, I knew immediately that we were made for one another. She was wearing a pair of worn out bell bottom denim trousers and a crop top. Her hair was long and red. She had soft waves and fresh cut bangs.
