I am sure by now you all have become familiar with BB creams (BB = Beauty Balm). heck, now we have even moved on to CC creams (CC = Color Correcting) and apparently DD creams are in the works. Confused? Fashionista provides an excellent breakdown of the difference between them all.
BB cream for your hair, and it is marvelous. It touts itself as a 10-in-1 solution for things like manageability, heat protection and shine among others. All i know is that when I use it post-shower, my blowdry looks so much better than usual (and dare I say takes less time? Maybe I am imagining things). Less frizz, movement and body to my hair. It is a great drug store find for sure.
2. This picture of Charlie Manuel breaks my heart and makes me love him more all at the same time. I know the Phillies felt they had to make some big changes, and firings like this are just how the business of baseball is done. But I think I loved the Phillies *that much more* with Charlie as the team's Skipper. He made me feel....safe. I trusted Charlie. He always felt like a Pop-Pop to me...I imagined a dish of Werther's candies set next to his favorite chair at home and could imagine him sneaking me a $10 bill when no one was looking, with a little wink to say it was our secret. This pic also let me know Charlie is just like me. He knows that when you are heading out of Philadelphia, you should stop to get some Wawa for the road.
3. Friday. That means the end of this hellatious, craptastic, Calgon-take-me-away week is in sight. Thank goodness because I am seriously running on empty when it comes to patience and composure at work this week. I have found myself biting my tongue (literally...as in I almost drew blood) so many damn times this week to stop myself from just letting sh*t fly and telling people exactly what I thought.
4. The movie "Jobs." I saw it last week and it's just kind of....*meh*. I feel like Ashton Kutcher slapped together a bunch of mannerisms, threw on a black mock turtleneck and called it a performance. To me is was just a drawn out impression of Steve Jobs. I don't feel like I learned anything I didn't already know or got any insight into his life. The movie was a somewhat glorified live-action version of Steve Jobs' resume. The highlight for me was Josh Gad. I just love him.
Oh and the other highlight was also being able to see it in MVP and mine's new favorite theater. This AMC theater revamped itself with leather recliners, reserved seating and a tricked out fancy coke machine. You know, the kind that lets you pick from what feels like a gazillion choices. Diet cherry ginger ale on tap? Yes please!
5. Orange is the New Black. Finally convinced MVP to give this Netflix series a try and I am hooked. The first season has 13 episodes --we watched three in a row last night, and am fairly certain we will plow through the other ten over the course of this weekend. This series is based on Piper Kerman's memoir about her own experiences in prison.
