  • Bracing for Irma

    Contributing Writer

    As Floridians, we have certainly had our fair share of hurricanes. For some, it even calls for a quick run by the liquor cabinet to watch the storm unfold outside. Hurricane Irma is not your average hurricane. Residents need to stay prepared and vigilant. As the coverage unfolds on this powerful storm system, the unpredictable nature of these storms can be daunting.

  • The hair evolution

    What is it with women and their hair?

    Good hair days, bad hair days. We seem to be ruled by the shape, cut and color of our hair.

    The female friends I have who aren't concerned about their hair have done the thing that makes the most sense – they've cropped it close to their heads leaving no question about whether it's a good hair day or not. Every day is the same.

    I wish I were one of those women who didn't worry about their hair. But I'm not.
