Since my hair is naturally curly, I try not to wash my hair everyday. For years, I have been using baby powder in my blond hair to help make it look less greasy. (it sounds really gross, but it really helps make your hair look more blond) I have seen this tip in magazines since I started reading In Style 8 years ago and lately I have seen an abundance of new dry shampoo products.
Here are a few I have tried:
Ojon Rub Out (available at Sephora)
Aveda Pure Abundance hair potion
And recommend to me last night: Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray
...but I keep going back to my baby powder.
We are in desperate need of a new durable floor runner in our entry way, so I have been checking out the Flor carpet tiles. (I saw these at Target, cb2, and Chiasso) The reviews are good and people say they are easy to clean. (you can vacuum or rinse them in the sink) I am thinking of getting the textured squares called Morning Coffee in black, white, and red and trying to cut them into some sort of pattern. (or the stampede that looks like cow hide is cool!) You can play around on the Flor web page and create your own rug! (They even have a Martha Stewart brand) Is it weird that this is fun?? It is way better than building a bear.

Project Runway, Workout, Top Chef, The Real Housewives of New York City... in no particular order!
Something new to try: Last week on The Real Housewives, Bethenny mentioned her "skinny girl" margarita, which consisted of Patron silver, lime juice, and a splash of triple sec. We should really get together and try this!

I am looking for a piece of art to hang over my couch. (the picture that is up right now I painted and I am tired of looking at it) I think I want a neutral print... what do you think of these? I am going to go to cb2 this week and will check them out. Or I might paint another picture based on a Mark Rothco that I saw at the MOMA. What do you think?
