June 4, 2012

In the winter, beauty consists of jewel-toned scarves, bundling them around our necks to set off the pale, snow white glory of our winter skin.  Our hair is heavier somehow, and styled when we can be bothered.  We declare Christmas Season to begin in early October because it means baked goods and oven smells and […]
