Chris McMillan Wants Me To Have Pretty Hair

Instead of working this afternoon, I took a few minutes to look at the educational website, www.allure.com

Since all of our hair is going to get drier in the coming months, I thought I'd share a tip that I learned. Chris McMillan (fabulous hairdresser to the stars and frequent "Hair Guy" for Allure) says:


"Every time I see a head of fried hay-hair walk into the salon, I have the same recipe: Mix two tablespoons each of a rinse-out conditioner, a leave-in conditioner, a deep conditioner, and a hair mask in a bowl. Wet two large towels, wring them out, and put one in the microwave for a minute. Comb the mixture through clean, damp hair, and wrap it all up in the hot towel. Heat the second towel and alternate, repeating two or three more times. Do this once a week—it makes hair much softer."

Let's all try it!

How we did the Dew.

We took Mountain Dew Live Wire and Mountain Dew Voltage and mixed them into the yummiest beverage that tastes like gummy bears.

Oh, the luck!

I just had to share this magical moment with you all. Today seemed like an ordinary day as I left work, but when I got in my car and started Vanessa up, I glanced at my odometer and saw the most wonderful thing ever! This has got to be lucky, right?



111111. Dude. Can't wait for my good fortune to begin and I hope it rubs off on all of my friends!

Stephanie's Own Dictionary

So, when you do a spell check on an email or document, and it comes across an error, it asks you if you want to IGNORE, CHANGE, or ADD. When it is a slang word or a made up word that I use a lot, I add it to my dictionary so the stupid spell checker doesn't bug me everytime! Here is the list of all the words I have added:

We got a dog!

Meet Lucy.




Well, it's Lucy Maud Montgomery Schulz, actually.

She is from Australia, but has an American accent. She likes to pee in my bed, shed all over everything, and eat our window blinds.


She is sooooo sweet, but is pretty much the dunce of her doggie class.

Duck, Duck, Duck...

I'm such a good cook. I made duck for Easter and it was super yummy. Just wanted to share the pics!



And I didn't know how to carve the thing so I cut it in half with kitchen shears and plopped it on my plate as is!



I know you're all jealous!!

Google It

Google it. This is a common phrase, right? Everyone says it. A million times a day. But I just overheard a conversation at work between two gals trying to find some information, particularly a restaurant menu and phone number. Then my southern co-worker asks the other, "Did you google 'em up?"

Google them up?


Just a little story.

A Glamorous Deal!

So this year is Glamour magazine's 70th anniversary...and so we can join in the celebration too, all of Wet N Wild's 99-cent nail polish will be 70 cents from March 10 to April 10, 2009! If you're not up to doing the math, that's a whopping 29-cent savings per bottle. It's a recessionista's dream! Let's all stock up!
