I have been working in Carefree, Arizona (just outside of Scottsdale) for the past three days.
I knew Arizona would be hot in June, but we have been experiencing record-breaking temps — 115 degree days and ‘cooler’ evenings that barely reach 90.
But that old adage about it being a ‘dry heat’ is true…
My hair has looked fabulous.

As a fettuccine head who works hard every day to be more spaghettoni, this packaging speaks to me.
I am also hungry.

An instagram account has got me thinking about holiday decorating.
The Gay Beards are all about men’s grooming…specifically, really creative ways to fancy up facial hair.
But their glitter beards?
They just make me want to decorate a Christmas tree completely covered in glitter.
Their tutorial video suggests using beard oil to make the glitter stick.
Hmmm…tree sap, maybe?

All the long beards I have seen of late?
They’ve got nothing on this guy.
And he’s from way back when. (And spends his time now in a steakhouse…where real men go to die).

Really big necklaces.
I see them everywhere on the subway these days.
Women are wearing them with the expected dresses and business suits, but also with casual tees and jeans.
I mentioned they are HUGE, right?
Some I like. Most not so much.
But I have noticed one very strange phenomena — and I admit, I am generalizing, but have seen enough to claim a trend — many of the women who favor these really big (HUGE) necklaces seem to think wearing them diverts attention from the rest of their person.
So, no need to do their hair. Or put on even the tiniest bit of makeup. Just don the really big necklace, and it will do the heavy lifting for their ensemble.
Or, I guess in this case, the heavy pulling down of their neck toward the ground.

Every time I shake someone’s hand, people comment on how soft my hands are.
If only one person said it, I would shrug it off. But it’s become a thing.
What makes it especially weird is that I hate hand lotion. Never use it. And I’m not doing anything to pamper them.
So what gives?
Well, I started paying attention of late, and have decided that the one substance that comes in contact with my hands several times a day may be the reason:
Dawn dishwashing liquid
I wash my hands so many times a day because I’m feeding the dog and medicating the dog and cleaning up after his various and sundry bodily functions.
It’s like a TV commercial from the 50’s.
But then again, they are that soft.

The L’Oreal model for their ‘Blow Dry It’ primer spray looks very familiar…
Any Partridge Family fans out there? She’s the spitting image of young Susan Dey:
And just think — Susan got her hair that straight without a flat iron or primer spray.
How did she do it?

On rare occasions, I have had the pleasure of having a professional artist do my makeup.
Each asked my preferences before they began– colors, eyes, lips, etc. For example, I often said I liked a ‘strong eye.’
Thank goodness they never interpreted that to mean this —

I HATE BLOW DRYING MY HAIR.
I have a lot of it. And in the summer, it is a hot, time-consuming, uncomfortable, thankless job. Plus, I have to flat iron it to get it really straight.
Yes, I splurge for blow-outs at the salon now and then, but tonight, it’s on me.
And I hate when it’s my turn.
