Hello everyone, happy Sunday! The holiday season is officially over. I hope you had splendid end-of-year holidays, whatever holidays you celebrate.  It's time for the first weekly recap of 2023!  A week ago, my  Maltipoo Rascal  turned four. Obviously, I had to post about his  birthday ! On Monday, I posted about my  curly hair journey  and how my curl pattern is changing and becoming looser. Then, on Wednesday, I published a post explaining why you should  stop using terrycloth towels  to dry your hair and what you should use instead. And last but certainly not least, on Friday, I wrote an article about the  feast of the Epiphany  and  the legend of  La Befana   (aka The Christmas Witch). (LINKS BELOW) Read...
