Burqa is a traditioal woman accessory. It resembles a metal mask, but in fact it is tailored, dyed dark blue or violet and rubbed with a glass sphere to give metal luster.

Burqa used to be a symbol of beauty and femininity, sometimes it even were soaked with herbal infusion to prevent wrinkling.

Today only some elderly women who live in countryside.

Guest23 November 2018Доставляли долго, но это, пожалуй, самый большой их недостаток. Вы не поверите, но уже через три недели после регулярного употребления курса я сбросила почти 6 килограмм. Я очень довольна и всем рекомендую эти таблетки. Спасибо!» Реальные отзывы покупателей средства для похудения Dietonus. Ирина Николаевна, 38 лет: «Комплекс заказывала на сайте. <a href=http://pro-zeroprost.ru/unitox>http://pro-zeroprost.ru/unitox</a> Дозировка при разводе водой для различных процессов отличается. Всё это подробно расписано в описании препарата BioGrow. Также существуют особенности применения для разнообразных культур. Например, для замачивания семян томатов нужно максимальное количество времени 48 часов. А для замачивания клубней картофеля минимальное – 12 часов.
