Did you all see her new look?

Keyword: Miley Cyrus, haircut, celeb haircut

I first saw this photo posted on someones facebook and I didn’t even realize it was Miley Cyrus until today when someone asked me if I saw her new haircut.  Since I haven’t had much computer time I had no idea that Miley had cut her hair so drastically! It doesn’t even look like her!

I have to admit…I think she looks fantastic!  She is totally rockin it the right way.  I never would have pegged her as edgy like that but I am thoroughly  impressed by her.  Now I wonder how many little girls are going to be begging their mom’s for this cut…and how many disappointed young ladies will have it done and hate it! haha

Ellen DeGeneres already gave it a shot! Hahaha Imitation is the best form a flattery, huh?




A look into how gracefully Betty White has aged

Keyword: Betty White, Golden Girls, age

 

At 28 years old, Betty White was a stunning brunette co-hosting a show called “Hollywood” for 5 hours a day, 6 days a week. In 1950 she was nominated for her first Emmy Award…thus creating the ever so popular Betty White we all know and love today!

 

 

In 1958 she was as beautiful as ever! Still brunette coloring but now sporting a cute page boy cut!

 

 

In 1975 she goes blonde!! Her roll as the happy homemaker Sue Niven’s on the “Mary Tyler Moore Show” wins her an Emmy!

 

 

Hello Rose Nylund!  In 1985 Betty lands her most popular role to date! “Golden Girls” becomes a huge sensation and Betty White becomes a name we will never forget! Still blonde, and still short. I guess longer hair was never in her cards! That pop of lip color is gorgeous though!

 

 

Betty shows her true colors! Silver hair never looked more flattering on anyone! After her super-bowl commercial in 2010, Betty White becomes a bigger sensation than anyone ever expected!

 

 

Today, at 88 years old..she now has her own sitcom “Hot In Cleveland”. Going back to blonde might mean they really do have more fun? And don’t you just love her hot pink lips?

Is it so bad to want ROYGBIV in your hair?

I have a confession to make. I want that hair. I want to pretend that is me. I have always wanted rainbow hair. Seriously. I won’t ever do it, but, I mean, this chicks hair is my lenghth and i’ve got a lot of tattoos also! It is so COOL! I’m sure it took forever to do that, and I honestly cant imagine how she is ever going to wash her hair without the dye running and ruining all the individual colors. But, it’s nice to dream!

 

This got me thinking about my past attempts to dye my hair…in high-school I was blessed with a super cool mom who let me dye my hair funky colors. It was green, purple, pink and blue. Sometimes it was streaks, sometimes the whole head – like the time I was 19 and I chopped all my hair off, bleached it to white and dyed it….bright blue. I don’t know why – don’t ask me. And to add insult to injury, I took my drivers license pic like that. So, for almost 10 years when I would go out, bouncers would look twice (three times really) at my stupid license and the stupid hair I have in that pic. “Yes, its me. Yes, its real” is usually my response. When I was on American Idol, the producers actually thought my license picture was funny upon seeing it for a release form. Thank the lord that hair only stuck around for about two months! Smurfette much?

 

I think my fascination with dying my hair rainbow is all Leisha Haileys fault. When I was 16, I discovered the album The Murmurs. I bought it in K-mart in Bohemia with my mom. And why did I buy it you ask? Well, I bought it because there were two chicks on the cover with rainbow and pink hair. I wanted in. (So, I guess you could say I bought it because I was gay.)

 

 

Woah! Youve come a long way Alice! I mean…Leisha!

 

So that began the fascination that continues now. Check it -

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t you just love it?! Makes you wish you were a rock star for a living, no?

 

I realize that this post is totally sexist and only features feminine hair styles…so don’t worry boys and bois – I’m currently on the hunt for dude-like rainbow hair models! That post is on it’s way!

It wasn’t all sunny skies and blue water!

Keyword: vacation, sun block, over the hill, sun burn, braids

Welcome back…hope you all had a great weekend!  I spent most of it catching up on all my work, but now I’m ready to give you all brand new articles, like usual ;)

Besides the beautiful beaches and sites of Haiti, San Juan, St. Maarten, Antigua (seen here in above photo), and St. Kitts…there was plenty more to see while on a 12 day cruise with my darling fiance.

First of all, let me change the subject and start off by saying that its very hard to keep your nice, bright, pink hair color while on vacation. I’m not used to washing my hair on a daily baises but when you’re on a beach all day and swimming in the ocean you kind of have no choice.  Thank goodness I decided to bring my Chi Chromashine color with me.  I re-dyed my pink hair twice while away, and I am so glad I did! Now when we get back all our professional photos from the cruise, I know my hair is going to look fab!

 

Okay, back to all the interesting things I noticed while cruising the ocean for almost two weeks….

 

1- Royal Caribbean International is for old people…like really, really old people.  We were the youngest on the cruise by at least 25 years! Granted, my fiance and I enjoy our time alone together, so we mostly kept to ourselves. However, when the only activities they are offering on the cruise include arthritis seminars, napkin folding 101, bingo, or instructions on how to look 10 years younger today….you know you’re in for a lot of money spent at the bars! haha  That brings us to topic number 2…

 

2- Having your hair braided on the caribbean islands was cool when you were 12, but when you are 50+ I’m going to have to give it a big thumbs down. Unfortunately I am not smooth enough to snap photos of people as they walk past me without them knowing so this photo was just taken from the internet…but after our first few stops to the island, this was the look that many of the ladies passing us by in the motor scooters (I’m not kidding!) on the ship were rocking.  I even spotted an older man, about 65 years old with the back of his head beaded and braided. It had me giggling a lot!

 

3- It’s the islands people! It’s much closer to the equator and if there is one thing I remember from 5th grade science, it’s that the equator is closest to the sun. This means an 80 degree day in Haiti is going to feel a lot warmer than an 80 degree day in NY.  With that said….remember your sun block!! After our first port, I would say that 60% of the passagers were walking around with sun burns.  We actually started with 30spf, but when we realized we were still getting too much color with that, we bought 50 spf.  Believe it or not, we still got color!

 

4-Okay, so you remembered the sun block…but did you forget how to put it on?! Streaks everywhere!  First of all…the sun block is not more effective if you don’t rub it in.  So don’t be the idiot on the beach walking around with white cream on your nose. It’s not attractive and it’s not making any difference. Secondly…make sure you get it everywhere! Don’t use it sparingly. Cover all your grounds or you’re just going to look like a hot mess!

 

5- Who knows…maybe there were more people our age but we mistook them for over the hill on account that their skin looked like old, brown, worn out, leather shoes!  We actually sat next to two sisters from NJ who looked like this.  It was scary.

 

Aside from all these lovely sites that kept us on our toes, we had a wonderful vacation. The weather was perfect, and relaxing was all we did! I am so happy to have had that much time alone with the most wonderful person in my life. We enjoyed a perfect Valentine’s Day and even celebrated 8 years together while sailing the ocean. <3
