Today marks what would have been my parents 33rd wedding anniversary, and this was thier song. It brings back some beautiful memories of when we were all soooooo happy. You are so missed daddy <3
I’ve been saving this one especially for this week since tomorrow is the first day of September. This song/day always means alot to me since August is always such a tough month. My dad had his accident August 9th of 2002, and died on the 30th so this has always been a horrible time for me. But the first day of September always marks a new beginning, hence why this song means so much to me. Not to mention it’s one of the best songs of all time, by one of the best bands of all time.
It also means that Fall, my favorite season is just on the horizon! I can can almost smell the dried leaves now…
And with that, sing us out EWF!!!
And yes I realize it’s not curly in the photos so quit messaging me about it! I straightened it so my fabulously talented mom could make sure there weren’t any spots of that stubborn red dye left.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved the red, but let me warn you guys, it’s a serious commitment. Red fades faster than any other color, which leads to lots of re-touching, which can lead to lots of damage. In my case, my hair was so dry from all the constant touch ups it was hard to even cut. To me the damage isn’t worth it, so I decided to go with somthing really dark that I could just leave alone for a few months while my hair repairs itself.
A few of you on my Twitter and Facebook have asked about the process and which dye I used, so I’ll post a video tomorrow explaining the whole process to those of you who are considering a similar look, so stay tuned!!!
Not only is this one of the best sexy time songs ever, but the video freakin rules. I mean, it has everything you could ever ask for. A saucy LA nightclub, dancing girls with 90′s layered hair, a cameo from Holly Robinson before she was Robinson Pete! And don’t even get me started on how Babyface does the lambada with practically every girl in the club. Shit, his hair alone is reason enough to watch all 6 minutes and 19 seconds of this cinematic masterpiece.
The world is full of crappy beauty products, and I have decided that I shall go in search of those craptastic inventions and report back to you all every Wednesday with the bad, the worse and the ugly.
Today we’ll be exploring something that’s not really all that new, but still makes me ask wtf none the less. And probably all of you as well. I give you…the Smooth Away.
Ya, I know we’ve all seen the commercials on TV. A bunch of lovely, smooth skinned ladies sitting around in bath towels buffing away unwanted hair with this magical pastel colored device. And of course there’s the totally random lady on the street exclaiming “wow, I’ll never have to shave again!”
Well, that all sounds charming, but I knew it also sounded a little too fantastical to be true. And I was right, cuz this product totally sucks. It’s basically low grade sand paper that you rub on your skin to remove unwanted hair. While the product exfoliates well as promised, it takes off virtually no hair at all. It does however manage to irritate the hell out of your skin, which is always fun. This was most evident when I tried the mini pad on my upper lip and ended up looking like I had a red moustache. So I basically paid $9.99 to look like Danny Bonaduce.
In fact, I had to scrub my skin almost raw to get off any hair at all. Which really hurt. A lot. So unless you enjoy having your top 2 layers of skin scraped off, I suggest sticking to a hair removal method that’s less painful, like a razor. Or actual sandpaper. Or a blowtorch.
Update: I totally just got Rickrolled by the Smooth Away web site! After posting this story I tried to close the page, and it wouldn’t let me! They just kept giving me more crappy offers, and every time I closed one window, another would pop up offering me even more Smooth Away crap I don’t want! That’s like WTF with an extra side of STFU!
