Good morning and Happy New Year! I promise not to take up too much of your time today because I know you are eager to get to your appointment at the Blowout Bar, or to refresh that mani-pedi. Or both. After all, who among us wants to greet the New Year with cowlicks and chipped
Hey, all you geezers out there! Do you think you’re still cool? If you do, it’s a sure sign that you’re not. Because if you were, you’d be Gucci. Have no idea what I’m talking about? That might indicate that you aren’t woke. Don’t worry. I’m here to help. The enormous popularity of social media
