Glow-in-the-dark make-up

 

Keyword: Glow dark make-up, make-up forever

Recently this trend has become much more popular and with Halloween around the corner I figured there is no better time than now to post about it.  Make-up Forever put out a translucent powder called Fluo Night that you can add to your make-up that will make it glow under a black light. The translucent color means that it won’t be seen under normal lighting, but once you hit that black light….bam!  More recently they have introduced colored Fluo in 8 different shades.  Now, my club days are over but it definitely looks like fun. I’m just wondering where I could go to show it off ;)




The Washington Wizards new jerseys are eerily similar to the team they share a building with

Keywords: washington, wizards, capitals, ted leonis

Ted Leonis is the owner to the Washington Wizards. He also happens to own the NHL team, the Washington Capitals. The Caps have had their current jerseys for quite a few years, and Leonis has adapted that design to his Wizards. The Wizards are an awful team, the Caps have been pretty good in the past few years. My thinking is that Leonis is a marketing genius, the Caps are whats big in D.C. so he decided to make the Wizards look just like them. Unfortunately these slick jerseys have seen very, very, very few wins.




A diva in the making!

Keyword: mini-me, Meghan

Little Miss Meghan has made it to my blog again! A few months back I posted about how she took the scissors to her own hair…more than once.  Now, here I am to show off how cute my little cousin (or soon to be cousin since she is actually my fiances cousin) really is.  This past weekend we had a family party and all the little girls wanted feathers. Meghan asked for a pink one. It was so cute how excited she was to get it. She kept showing it off all night. Then today, her mom sent me the two photos below with the caption “Now I look just like Jill.”  My heart melted! Not only does she have the pink in her hair like me, but now she’s got cool press on nails too! If you’ve been following my blog at all, or know me, then you know that I never go a day without my acrylic nails!

When asked what Meghan wants to be when she grows up, she will most likely answer with ‘hairdresser’, and the number one thing on her Christmas list this year is that little kids salon station they sell at ToysRus. <3  I tell you, this girl is me 26 years ago!  All I cared about was making sure my mom did my hair in something different every morning, I had to wear dresses so I could spin around in them, and I loved having my nails painted!

Jimmy and Denise, you guys are raising one hell of a diva ;)

 




As a stylist, I wonder that a lot!

Keyword: dye, hair dye, boxed dye

I cannot tell you how often I am fixing people’s mishaps. I understand that initially the thought is that you would save money by purchasing a $4.99 box of hair dye at the store, but you are taking a huge risk when you do that!

All too often I have clients sit in my chair who dye their hair themselves, and as I cut, I notice all the spots that are missing because they either didn’t apply correctly, or were too cheap to buy two bottles when their hair clearly called for it.  Yes, sometimes the boxed dye does work and it comes out great and looks beautiful. But, not everyone is lucky.

 

There are affordable stylists out there that won’t cost an arm and a leg to have a simple, single process color done.  Hell, if you’re in the Long Island are, come visit me ;)




Katy Perry poses with her hot date

Keywords: pic of the day, katy perry, grandma

 

Katy Perry showed up to the Billboard Music Awards with her Grandmother as her date, how cute is that?   Katy tweeted earlier in the day, telling the world that her date was hotter than Las Vegas weather-   then showed up with her grandma, Ann Hudson.    This must be such an amazing experience for her grandma to experience a day in the life on the red carpet




Thank you Bath & Body Works

 

Keyword: Bath & Body Works, lotions, holiday

Mmmmm, what smells so good??! One of my favorite things about the holiday season is all the yummy smells of Christmas. The smell of the evergreen tree, sugar cookies baking, gingerbread house, …etc. It always puts me in that holiday spirit.  This is why I love Bath & Body Works so much.  They always have awesome smelling lotions and body sprays.  Sometimes I’ll spray them in the air just to make my house smell good! There are so many different kinds out there.

This one is  Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin body splash.  I can only imagine what this smell like…heaven!

How about some Twisted Peppermint hand soap?  I would want to lick my fingers as if they were candy canes!

Did you know that snow has a smell? Well it does!  Check out this Sparkling Snow hand soap.

If you are looking for a great holiday gift for someone, you can try any of these following tins.  This one is Vanilla Bean Noel. They include lotion, shower gel, and spray.

 

Then there is the Pink Sugar Plum. Are they dancing in your head yet?

 

And the third one is  Winter Candy Apple. Such a sweet smell it has.  Reminds me a bit of apple pie. Yummy!!

 

Now I have shown you all the sweet smells of the holiday season, and maybe even helped you with your shopping a bit, huh? You’re welcome ;) Enjoy your weekend! 




Are you seeing what I’m seeing?

Keyword: pink eyebrows, BTC, pink hair

BehindTheChair.com shared this photo yesterday and I thought I would pass it along.  I know they say that you should try to match your eyebrows to your hair, but this takes it to a whole new level, don’t you think? Have you ever seen pink brows before?  I haven’t!  Is it weird that I don’t think it looks that bad!?
