FASHION FRIDAY’S with Hana Nitsche 

She embodies gods grace and her virtue lends a hand to the presence of peace and tranquility. Soft spoken-yet confident in every favor of divinity, She reflects on the past but never allows the quality of her charm to reflect the image she is not.

Her good will is a mere reflection of her self-esteem and elegance is an excretion of poise she possess. Happiness surrounds her like bees amongst its nest, transferring energy inside the home of warmth and comfort.

Her appeal comes off as sensually attractive but her mind is deeper than the lust for known parts pleasing to man. And with just one look, she leaves her counterparts asking for more without speaking one word.
