I will be honest and say that I rarely clean the pillows!  Perhaps it would help my allergies if I did!  I’m a little convicted. (Yes! I clean the pillow cases) Despite that…I hope everyone will

  1. I don’t clean my pillows very often either… certainly nowhere near every 3 months!

    I agree that a hairstyle can age us or erase a few years from our look, but I disagree with the idea that short hair is always more youthful looking than long. I kept my hair short for many years and then decided on a whim to grow it out which I’ve been doing for the past year. As I did, my natural unruly curls came out to play! I’m 65 and I’ve been told over and over that I look younger now. Recently, I tried straightening my hair just to see how that would look and I was flabbergasted by the old woman in the mirror! That aged me terribly, so I’ll be keeping the curly look which is so much easier anyway.
