Fashion Designers won't Dress Melania Trump - But why?

Yesterday, Tom Ford joined a growing list of high-end designers refusing to dress the soon to be First Lady, Melania Trump.


I am not sure why they are doing this.  I honestly think its kind of stupid.

This is how I see it:

A Yugoslavia girl who had a modest upbringing lands an international modeling contract at the age of 18 and builds a successful modeling career that lands her in New York City by the age of 26 attending affairs with New York's elite.  She then meets her future husband at age 28 and gets married at 35. She becomes a mother at age 36, with enough excitement under her belt, and money in her accounts to settle into motherhood quite nicely.  Her son will have the best education and live in the most afluent neighborhoods.  Then, on top of having an already fabulous life, she is soon to make history as the only foreign born First Lady of the USA. I think that's pretty damn awesome!  I am not about to judge this woman based off of who her husband is.

Melania Trump started modeling at 16yo. She studied Design and Photography in high school, and then went on to attend the University of Ljubljana.  This is considered one of the top 800 Universities in the world.  It is also the largest and oldest university in Slovenia.  She attended the University for one year before shifting her focus more towards her modeling career.

Melania speaks 6 different languages. (SIX!!) She modeled for magazine's and fashion houses in Milan, Italy and Paris, France before relocating to New York in 1996. She has been featured in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue and on the cover of several magazines including Harper's Bazaar, Allure, Vanity Fair and GQ.

She doesn't have an Ivy League education.  But she does have an incredible story.

I love Michelle Obama and I'm going to miss her being FLOTUS.  She's beautiful, classy and intelligent. I wish she would run for president herself. But I also welcome Melania Trump.

I think its a huge mistake, and a lost opportunity for designers to not dress the new First Lady, and I think its wrong.  Its crazy that in this coutry its okay to have a whole walk against slut-shaming, but God forbid a model who took some racey photos should become First Lady.

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

Top 5 things to remember when filing income tax returns in 2022

Top 5 things to remember to speed tax return processing and avoid delays! 1. For an accurate return, collect all documents before preparing your tax return. In addition to collecting W-2s, Form 1099s and other income-related statements, it is important people have their advance Child Tax Credit and Economic Impact Payment information on hand when filing. 2. File an accurate return and use e-file and direct deposit to avoid delays. Taxpayers should electronically file and choose direct deposit. 3. Use online resources before calling the IRS.
