A New Brush?

Until today, I have never bought myself a hair brush. Ever. My old hair brush was one my mom bought me probably 10 years ago for Christmas and it was time to say goodbye.

Since I’ve never bought a brush before I had no clue what type is actually good for my hair. Right now my hair is very tangley. I have had it cut only twice in the past year. I don’t really have much time or desire to spend much time on it. No matter what I do, my hair insists on being straight so I am learning to live with that.

Most days, I struggle to detangle my hair with my ancient brush after I showered and immediately put it in a braid. The braid is essential  to help stop tangles and to prevent my baby boy from grabbing my hair and pulling.

I went to a hair supply store and was overwhelmed with all the selection they offered. Then I saw one that said it is the best detangling brush ever.  Since it came in purple and it is wise to believe everything you read on the package, I bought it!



I came home, unbraided my hair and brushed it. And wow…it sure does make a difference to use a brush that actually works! Now if I can get my baby boy to stop pulling my hair, I may be able to wear it down once in a while!

I Wish I Lived In Sweet Valley

If you knew me in real life, this is not a secret confession. I make no apologies, nor do I try to hide the fact that I have always had a special place in my heart for Sweet Valley ever since I first read Sweet Valley Twins. I have been known to break out the Sweet Valley High board game at parties and force everyone to play along. I’ve also been known to name my favourite drinks after Sweet Valley High characters (i.e. cranberry vodka, my staple, is called The Elizabeth).

Well today I just discovered that the long-awaited Sweet Valley Heights/Sweet Valley Confidential FINALLY has a name – Sweet Valley Ten Years Later, a publishing date – March 20, 2011, website, and twitter! If I were one to squee, this would be one of the very major squee moments of my life.

I’ve read the first chapter and it seems like another Elizabeth is hurt by Jessica’s thoughtlessness and runs away from her life. I hope it gets better. My speculation is that Jessica had an affair with the dreamy Todd Wilkins and got pregnant…

I hope this isn’t like that horrible Elizabeth series.

I also found out that supposedly Diablo Cody is doing a Sweet Valley High movie. That I can watch. In public. With people.

It is going to take place in the 80’s, where SVH is supposed to be. No cell phones, internet, facebook, twitter. There will hopefully be plenty of princess phones, skin-tight jeans, high waists, cords, chinos, big hair, perms, fashion magazines, 80’s sports cars (think, Bruce Patman), dances with the Droids playing, Lila Fowler being Lila Fowler and not a clone of all mean girls these days, I can go on and on and on!

So. Freaking. Excited.
