Hey Lovely! I have a dirty confession: I only wash my hair once or twice a week. And it’s not that I’m lazy or I don’t care, it’s actually quite the opposite.

Hi Lovelies! So as well all know, Valentine’s Day is this weekend and while I appreciate the meaning of the holiday, I am just not super into it. Am I the only one? Maybe I am jaded from my years of working in retail marketing and all of the hype around holidays to drive sales, but cultural holidays just don’t do it for me. I will still go out for date night Sat night and I have a small surprise planned for my hubby on Sunday, but I won’t be going all out like it’s prom or a wedding. I’ll…
