- an adaptation of a design by Galerie Henna By Dija paste on, paste off, & 24-hr stain❀️ I am so in love with !! For me, the best way to learn a new style is to study the work of other artists who are expert in that style, and Khadija most certainly qualifies!

5 Reasons to Beware BA.5

Y'all ... Putcher dayum masks back on.
"But reinfections come with risks, experts caution. Your symptoms may not be as bad if you get COVID-19 a second or third time, the thinking being that β€œyou’ve got some immunity that’s going to prevent the disease from progressing quickly and to that severe disease state,” Pekosz says.

Emerging research, however, shows that with each infection, even an asymptomatic one, your risk of developing complications β€” heart attack, stroke, diabetes and long-term cognitive impairment β€” increases."

The omicron subvariant is causing a summer surgeΒ
