It means very early mornings, work, daily stress, multi-tasking, rushing, worrying, lots of driving, meetings, loving, conference calls, rushing some more, work, driving to and from sports, late nights of homework, a nice glass of red wine (which can dehydrate the skin). And that is not always the order of the day!...

Each time I looked in the mirror with brown hair, I had a hard time recognizing myself.  I was blonde as a child and only had brown hair for maybe a decade before I started coloring it myself.  I just feel better blonde and feel lik...
