You know what else I totally forgot to mention over the last few days? The cover of US Weekly that is declaring “A BABY FOR CHRISTMAS!” from Kate and Wills.
A few of you emailed to tell me it looks like I’ve won my bet with my friend at Starbucks. And I wholeheartedly agree. In fact, I walked into Starbucks on Monday morning and told him he owes me a cup of coffee because there is a bun in the royal oven.
He asked me for my source and when I said US Weekly he told me he was going to need me to cite a more reliable source. As if that even exists. What more could he want? A phone call from Pippa?
But, listen. I’m a fair person. I don’t want to claim my free grande peppermint mocha through false information. So I agreed we could wait for a more official source.
In the meantime we have a new bet as to whether or not Johnny Manziel will win the Heisman. I think you all know how I feel about that.
And, in other news, P thinks I might need to find a new Starbucks since my usual one has turned me into some sort of pop culture bookie.
Speaking of Princess Kate, I need to talk about hair. Specifically, hair products.
A few weeks ago I mentioned a hair revelation in the form of Kenra Thermal Styling Spray. I don’t expect any of you to really remember it because you have more important things to do with your life than worrying about my hair. However, I don’t have more important things to do with my life than worrying about my hair. Unless you count the fact that P was out of Natural White Cheddar Cheetos on Monday and needed me to go to HEB immediately to rectify the situation.
You’ll be glad to know it turned out all right. It was scary there for a moment.
Anyway, what I said was that I’d learned the secret to lasting curl and, therefore, lasting happiness is a 1.5 inch Hot Tools curling iron and Kenra Thermal Styling Spray.
Then, in one of the best things that has ever happened to me, the nice people at Kenra offered to send me a few more products to try. They didn’t even ask me to do anything for them in return which was so nice because I hate the pressure of a review. I mean, what if I hate the product? What do I do then?
But I have loved everything so much that I have to tell you about my favorites, in addition to the thermal styling spray that already had my love and devotion.
This is in no certain order. It would be like choosing a favorite child.
Okay, this claims to decrease the amount of time it takes to blow dry your hair while also offering protection from the heat. It’s also supposed to help with frizz and humidity.
But who cares about all that? Because did you read the part about decreasing your blow dry time?
And it totally does. This has possibly been life-changing for me because it takes a sweet forever to dry my hair and this has absolutely made a difference. I love it. I’ll never be without it again.
This might be my favorite. I know I said I didn’t have a favorite, but if Vidal Sassoon held a gun to my head and made me choose, this is it. Last week my hair really needed to be washed, but I didn’t realize it was too late to do anything about it. Then I remembered I had dry shampoo and LO AND BEHOLD a miracle occurred.
It wasn’t quite the fishes and loaves, but it helped me in my time of hair need by giving me extra volume and the illusion of clean hair. LOVE.
Best hairspray ever. It’s got the hold of Aqua Net but without the smell. But it’s not like a hairnet hold, it’s just enough to make curl stay all day and give me volume when I pull it back in a ponytail or something. I’ll buy it again and again.
So there you have it. My new can’t live without hair products. And I’m even including a picture of my hair even though there’s a good chance P will see it and make fun of me because I can’t manage to smile and take a picture of myself at the same time.
Also, my forehead looks big. And some Retin A might be in order.
Which brings me back around to my bangs or no bangs dilemma.
Because there are always new hair problems to be solved.
