Not even the particular vast continents of the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia, where a lot of us have moved, discovered great prospects, launched successful professions and found undying loves and romance. For, what could separate us? With this computers, and cellphones, we are only a message and text away, exchanging hey there, emails, photos or simply the feeling for the day. In happy times, batchmates all over the globe delight. In difficult periods they are around praying and sending comforting words of power and support.
Because move from Pear to Coral to Dark red, we realized that the volume, mass and weight of our body have changed to some degree. Gray hair and fine lines possess started to look.

The beverly hills and splendor around the world may have influenced us to some extent. But deep inside all of us, we are nevertheless the same giggling and shrieking “ Isabelina” in whose devotion to timeless ideals remain unchanged through the years.
