July 11, 2018

Summer heat got you feeling a bit cranky?

People used to see you as loving and kind, a defender of high spirits and unofficial cheerleader of Happy. But lately you've been subject to phrases such as "cold hearted witch" and "ice queen."

Hope is on the way. You can fight this battle against the attitude-altering monstrosity we call the sun. Become the good kind of ice queen -- think Frozen, that child-friendly film that warmed hearts across the world. All it takes is a few cool treats.
