Yeah, you saw it here, Folks. What? What were you expecting?
I grew my hair for a few years for Locks of Love to have it razored off in my head by the ponytail in seconds by my husband. What a mess! I looked like the Barbie the poor kid gets. The one where the hair is all chopped and lopped and basically past the point of help, BUT the beautician fixed me up nice.
I really just wanted to take this moment to say if you or someone you know is growing their hair for Locks of Love, apparently, people don't realize there are important guidelines. My own beautician has been wetting the hair of every head before she ponytails it BEFORE she cuts it and guess what? By the time it gets to Locks of Love, it's moldy and they won't use it. They specifically say to only CUT and SEND dry hair, but a lot of people just don't read the fine print and all that hair goes to the dumpster. I didn't grow my hair and have headaches for the last year (due to ponytail being too heavy) to have my hair go in a dumpster.
Also, you can send colored hair and you CAN send layered hair (the longest piece MUST be at least 10"), but you can't send bleached hair that has color ON TOP of it. Also, any pieces shorter than 10" will be sold by Locks of Love to support their cause.
So, what charity group do you believe in? If zero, why? I'm making my rounds now!
Hi, Everyone! Today's post is me spreading the word for another blog (I'll be making rounds this week though).
This is directly from Chris:
The Book Roast blog (www.bookroast.blogspot.com) will be hosting a Pitch Party on St. Patrick's Day-- Tuesday, March 17 from 7am through 7pm (NY time)! More info will be posted late Friday evening on the Book Roast blog. We're inviting participants to submit a pitch for a book (real or for fun). The theme is "luck," and the pitches will be limited to 75 words. One pitch per participant. I hope you can drop by and take a look. Or enter!! PLEASE ENTER!! You'll have fun, and you can use a pen name if you like!!
Five highly esteemed editors will select their favorite three, and say why those pitches stood out. The winning pitches will be announced at 9pm (NY time). The editors on board are listed below. Ms. Spitfire is technically in marketing, but she has occasion to touch the slush. :-)
My daughter turned 16 last week. 16! All I could think really was that she'll be driving soon, then off to school, then off into the world. I could get all mushy gushy with lots of memories and hopes for the future, but sometimes it's just better to just keep it short and sweet.
I can say she had a pretty big sweet 16 shopping spree in lieu of huge party. She cannot stand large, pretentious parties. She doesn't "get it," which I guess is good for us. She'd rather have that money spent directly on her. =)
So, here's a birthday picture of my daughter that she HATES, but I love because I caught her when she didn't think I was taking it. I can't help but think of her as beautiful in it. It's rare that girls these days actually smile for pics. They're like Civil War soldiers in those old tin types except with puckered lips. Hope all is well and I'll be making blog rounds soon.
