Spending my nights browsing fashion mags and catalogues featuring the hottest new looks for spring
while temperatures hover at a frosty 27º outside my window is making me a certain kind of crazy.
Frankly, it makes me want to gnaw off my own leg and run screaming for the nearest flight heading
south of the equator ( I suppose I would be hobbling, though).
With the frigid winds, icy streets and overall crappy weather…not to sound all end-of-the-world about it,
but all I can think is ENUFF ALREADYYY!! The unfortunate truth is that no matter what they’ve
featured at Fashion Week or are wearing in Aruba, for most of us western gals, spring is simply
unwilling to be sprung.
So we can either sit inside sulking and waiting, wearing our cute satin halter and cotton capris as
pjs-OR- we can embrace what’s left of spr-inter (spring/winter) by getting in touch with our inner Snow
Besides, what’s not to love about the Snow Queen? She’s fierce, she’s fabulous, she’s able to leap all
blizzards and ice storms in a single bound and she’s got crazy magical mojo!

I don’t know about you, but I hate washing my hair, especially when it’s cold out. My hair is thick, curly
and takes forever to dry, not to mention, straighten. That’s why dry shampoo like this one from Batiste is
so great. We all know that we are over washing our hair and the severe cold “sprinters” are a perfect time
to give the tendrils a break from harsh blow drying and flat irons.
Not sure about the idea? I get it, when I first started out as a Stylist & MUA, dry shampoo was only for
wigs/hair pieces, actors involved in period theater or clients who couldn’t handle hair washing due to
being in poor health. But these days dry shampoo has gone savvy and dare I say, sexy.
Batiste Dry Shampoo comes either scented or unscented and with a gold shimmer or my “sprinter”
favorite – a glamorous silver shimmer. It’s an ideal way to instantly clean and freshen up your hair
between washes while keeping your scalp warm and dry. It’s a kind of magical mojo that both you and
the Snow Queen are sure to appreciate
