It's hard to be sweet all the time.
This is something I discovered around the age of 7 and, to be honest, it's been a constant battle.

However, she's decided to break out. She's decided that she is more than the Katy Perry you know and judge every day. After all, her real name is Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson.

The two designs are sometimes referred to interchangeably, but they are two very different types of headphones.

I'd like to tell you how to attract women.
They're not interested in whether you're witty, Mitty, or have more bucks than a couple of Zucks.
What women really, really want is a man who has a new gadget that takes secret photographs of them.
It's worked for me countless times. The courts have acquitted me on several occasions. No, wait. What I mean is that Samsung has just released an ad to say that women are moved by the action on your wrist.
