Does such a thing exist?

Keyword: low maintenance, highlights

It exists, and it’s awesome.  If you have a client who loves the look of highlighted hair, but knows she won’t be back regularly for touch ups, this is the answer!  I’ve done it for a few of my clients and have only gotten positive reviews from it.

You have to make the highlights thin, as it won’t work for chunky. And it won’t work if they are looking to have a ton of highlights either.  It’s only for a soft look. The trick is to not do every foil right at the roots. Basically the point is to not make it noticeable when the roots start growing it.  Therefore, what I do is three different foils.  The first one is at the root,  The second one is about 3 inches from the root, and the third one is somewhere between the first and second.  Then I keep alternating the pattern. The result is perfect and your client will be very happy to NOT have to see you again in the usual 4 weeks ;)

Blue                                   12 drops
Green                                12 drops
Yellow                               12 drops
Orange                              12 yellow and 4 red drops
Red                                     18 drops


Line cupcake tray with 16 baking cups. {give or take…}

Evenly distribute the purple batter among the cups, then the blue, and so on, following the order shown.


As you go, gently spread each layer of batter with the back of a spoon to cover the color underneath.


Bake the cupcakes according to the directions on the box.


Before serving, add icing and remove the baking cup so the rainbow shows.

The Groovy new coach of the Portland Trail Blazers

Keywords: terry stotts, trail blazers


The Portland Trail Blazers have been a bit of a cursed franchise ever since passing up on Michael Jordan in the draft. Since then, they have had draft bust after draft bust, with many players ending their careers prematurely due to odd injuries. So now they have hired new coach Terry Stotts to break the curse. And in order to do that, he will be doing the time warp back to the 70′s. Groovy.

Is this for real?


Keyword: snakeskin, pedicure

First shoes, then handbags…now toenails?! The cost of this trendy, new, high end pedicure = $300!! When one of her children brought home a piece of snakeskin from science class, Terri Silacci was inspired. The truth is, its 100% real snakeskin. Apparently no snakes are hurt in the process so don’t get all “animal rights” on me. I still don’t think its for me. I guess I just can’t fathom spending more than $30 on my feet…unless it’s for a great pair of pumps! :)

Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Head over to 18 Wooster Street to check out The Little Black Jacket exhibition. Hurry up though because it is only open until Sunday, June 15th!

I am definitely heading over there ASAP, I would love to see these photos in person! I love how such an iconic piece of artful clothing can be recreated into a new form of art. These pictures are from who was lucky enough to go to the opening, and even more lucky to see Karl in person! I LOVE this pic!

So I have already shown you some Easter hair, but how about nails to match? Again, there are so many different directions you can go here. You can keep it simple with just straight up pastel nails, or paint them like colorful easter eggs. Or maybe you want the easter bunny himself to stand out on your nails.  You can even go with cute little chickies!


There is so much creative freedom here and they are all so fabulous…how do you choose?!  Here are some great nail art ideas!

When I saw this posted up online, I loved it! Rick Santorum, republican moron extraordinaire posted a tweet stating…


“An unborn child  is a human life, and like any one of us, worthy of basic dignity, respect and protection.”


Riiiiiiiiiiight. To which smarty pants awesome guy Daniel Velazquez replied


“So are homosexuals, but I don’t see you respecting them or their rights. #justsayin”



Well put Daniel. That kind of made my day. I wonder if he replied to it. Jerk.
