Is your protective style a crutch?

Is your protective style a crutch? The temperature has dropped! It’s now time for winter coats, hats scarves and gloves.

Laying your edges

Laying your edges

Laying your edges This is somewhat a controversial issue for me. Laying your edges?To be honest with you, I’ve been sitting on the fence about this. On one side i think that it can look so good! On the other hand, the implications behind it? I don’t know to be honest guys! For me, it […]
