In Which I Ramble, A Lot

Two more days until I head out to Wisconsin to see my loveeee!  Hooray!  Although, in looking at my flight info, I see I’m not scheduled to land in DC until 11 pm on Sunday night.  Why do I always think that’s a good idea?  It never is, especially when I need to be in work at 7 am on Monday morning.  Sigh.

Yesterday during lunch I finally had the opportunity to take one of the fitness classes at the work gym.  I have missed spin class dearly since dropping my old gym for the one located across the street, and a 12:15 pm class worked for me yesterday.  Unfortunately, it sucked.  Big time.  The music was blah, the instructor was not good, and if I hadn’t cranked my resistance up where I knew it should be, it would have been the lamest workout of all time.

There were a lot of first timers in the class, so I can understand taking it easy, but at least throw out some alternatives for those of us who have taken a class before.  This instructor was all about hill climbs, but kept us in the saddle for all the tracks except one, I would like to work other muscles in my legs please!  She never specified hand positions on the bike, where your RPMs should be, and she was recommending the resistance between 1-6.  Uh, I kept mine between 11-19.  Extremely disappointing :(.  I think one of the other trainers teaches a class sometimes, so I’ll have to ask her when she’ll be teaching and check it out.

After work I headed home to again immerse myself in the world of daytime drinking, casual sex, and two packs a day.  Dre and I are somewhere near the end of Season 2 I believe, and dreading the day when we’re all caught up and have to wait for episodes to air in real time.  We have also decided that what they say is true, if you watch enough smoking on TV, sure enough you’ll want a cigarette.  It doesn’t help that both of us used to enjoy a cig with our booze either, sigh.  Thankfully there is no longer a 7 Eleven across the street.

Ok, now for some beauty tips, because I am clearly qualified to give them.  Or not, but whatever.  I’m a sucker for marketing, and having naturally curly hair that becomes unruly in the summer humidity, I’ve missed having it straight.  So, when I saw the commercials for the new 3-Day Straight from Frizz Ease I had to try it.  I haven’t tried to wear my hair straight since I was in Chicago in June, it’s that bad.  Also, trying to blow dry without air conditioning is torture in and of itself, but that’s a story for another day.

So, I showered, sprayed the crap throughout my wet hair, blew dry it, and then took my straightener to it.  I was super impressed with how straight and shiny it was right off the bat, but the real test came when we went outside.  It was 98 and humid on Sunday, and my hair stayed straight and smooth while walking around outside, after sleeping on it, and after my sweaty spin workout yesterday.  Granted I didn’t wet my whole head, but what did get wet from a combo of sweat/shower spray, stayed straight when I dried it, without a brush.  It’s in a pony tail today, because it’s looking a little greasy, but still super straight.  I totally recommend this shit to all my frizzy/curly haired ladies.  And no, I did not get compensated for this review, I just feel your pain.  Proof?  This was yesterday:

And then today:

Not too bad for $9.99.  I like it.  Yes, I am making weird faces, I dunno, that’s just how I look.  Also, my hair will only look like that for another 8 hours, as I’m getting it done tonight.  Pray for my head, who knows what I’ll do.

  1. I will definitely be giving this a try. I used the one from Garnier and while it seemed to work, I felt like my hair had this greasy film and the product smelled AWFUL. Are you changing the color? It looks really pretty in your pics!

  2. I’m rocking a greasy ponytail today too. High five!

  3. Nice! I have weird mostly naturally straight hair with a hint of crazy waves and the summer is the only time the waves actually look decent so I tend to rock the curly natural look as much as possible. Also, it gives me 30 extra minutes of sleep in the morning – which always wins.

  4. Wow! That IS impressive. I am definitely going to look into that!!

  5. I am always looking for products to straighten my thick unruly hair. I am definitely going to try this. I love your hair! It’s so pretty 🙂

  6. And you say you never fix your hair for work… lol

    Impressive stuff, though- wish I could go that long without washing mine! I feel like such a greaseball if I don’t…

    • Haha, well technically I fixed it for Sunday, I’m just a dirt ball. Yeah, for some reason, my hair doesn’t get greasy that quickly.

  7. Oh, looking into that!

  8. I love products that actually do what they’re supposed to. I’ll have to pick it up, my hair isn’t curly, but it isn’t straight either. Half of it curls, the other half just frizzes. As hot as that is, I’d rather it just go straight.

  9. I’m going to try it out. I bet if you sprayed dry shampoo on it the other days you’d be fine.

  10. Ooh, I’m going to have to buy that stuff. I think my hair is the same curliness as yours. Only I’m usually too lazy to straighten it. How long does it take you do straighten yours?

  11. I must try this. My hair is like 1/2 wavy, but not enough that it looks cute if I air-dry it, I have to like load it with product or straighten it so I look like a human and not a hot mess.
    Also I need a haircut like yesterday. My split-ends have split-ends.

  12. I always do the latest flight to before work the next day – it’s so i can spend every last second wherever i am and then i hate myself the next day.

    if a spin class is that bad i leave. i cannot handle being in a spin class with sucky music and a douchey instructor. douchey is now a word, btw.
