Manny called it "a hard no" and thought the lashes weren't worth the price. Lashify owner Sahara Lott was not too happy about Manny's review of her…
I recreated Kim K’s most scandalous thirst traps starring my thicc, plus-size ass
No wonder she’s naked all the time

Oh, and I down some Henny, but that's neither here nor there.My booze-Instagram-attention cocktail can only take a girl so far, though. I ran out of…
