Notes, Links, Important Questions

Hello! I have some things to say on this beautiful Thanksgiving Eve. It's sunny and 70, and I'm unbearably cheerful, despite the fact that someone forgot to order us a fried turkey for tomorrow. By "someone," I mean "myself." Oops. Anyway, on with it:

1. Me + Go Mighty = 1000 POLAROIDS. I don't think I've ever had 1000 of anything, unless you include Polly Pocket all over my house. I am still finding pieces 10 years later. Shut up, Polly Pocket. Hooray, Polaroids!

2. I am loving the Hathaway so far, but I have GOT to get some products to make that piecey thing happen. What are y'all's favorite ones, pixied girls?

3. Does anyone know of a yellow paint color that is, like, nearly fluorescent? What about pink? I need to know, and I need to know bad.

4. Would you like to be my intern in Chicago for the Dec. 8 mini-camp? This job entails helping me set up and picking up drinks, food, coffee, etc. Also, bringing me all of your winter coats so I won't be cold. Owning a car is a bonus, as is being good at making things look pretty. Interested? Let me know!

5. One (1) spot left for Chicago mini-camp. How 'bout it?

6. 2013 camp locations -- and tentative dates -- will be announced next week. WHO IS EXCITED? IS IT AB CHAO? Yes. Yes, it is.

7. Have a wonderful week and Thanksgiving holiday. And if you see a fried turkey, it's mine.

i really really like Beeswax Pomade from the Body Shop. I hope they still have it! It's about $8 and it's lasted me a year. It's fantastic for piecing AND it smells like honey.

I also really like dirt texturizing paste by Jonathan. It smells like almonds & works really well!

happy searching and LET'S SEE YOUR HAIR ALREADY.

For the Hathaway, I use Jonathan Silky Dirt - it smells good, does a nice piecy-job without making my hair feel like straw. When I do want a more sticky-uppy (What? That's totally a technical term.) hold, I use regular Dirt.

Look for Tancho hair dressing for the pieciness. If you can't find it, I like Pureology Texture Twist. Plus, it smells like candy.

My secret to piecey hair is Murray's Superior Hair Dressing Pomade. You can find it in the African-American haircare aisle at Wal-Mart. You will only need a smidge, make sure you rub it in your hands Mister Miagi style to get it warm and pliable. Apply from the nape of your neck forward, and piece to your heart's content! The best part is it is only $2.50. You will thank me later!

There's a theatrical supply company, Rosco, that makes flourecent paint:

they also make flourecent-y UV paint:

It's designed for scenery, but it's like normal acrylic paint so there's nothing to stop you from using it in a house or wherever.

Dirt by Jonathan - you can get it on Amazon, and at various beauty supply stores (alas, no longer available at Sephora). It also comes in a handy travel size - it's the best ever. Seriously, my husband and I fight over it and I don't even have short hair anymore, I use it on the ends to make them look 'right'.

Cannot wait for the 2013 camp reveal!

When I rocked the pixie, my tried & true product (and believe me, I tried too many to mention) was American Crew Pomade (it's for dudes, but smells clean & works beautifully).
Tancho is great to, but I didn't care much for the smell after a while.

From an old Domino (Sept. '08)..."Lemon Twist, SW -6909, and Exuberant Pink, SW-6840." They look nearly fluorescent, but he does have neon lights in his house, so maybe that's why. :)

Hi! I want a Polaroid camera! Do you have any suggestions as to where I might find one? Thanks!

Bed Head products have always done right by me:

Bumble & bumble Sumo Tech lets you have piecy/hold without stickiness of some pomemades. I also love B&b Surf Spray and the 'texture' (un)dressing creme.
