There really is nothing like exacting revenge on bad hair days with a killer blowout. You know “those days” — when you run out the door before realizing you haven’t brushed your hair or remembered your make-up. Which generally coincide with the days you run into ex-boyfriends or your boss or — worse still — a prospective client who won’t ever take you seriously if you look like you just rolled out of bed. There’s just something so deliciously magical about the confidence boost a perfect blowout can give, almost as if those bad hair days just melt away. Ah, the power of a great, new hair style!
A shiny, bouncy mane is my perfect cure-all after a brutally busy week. Hair is one of the first things people notice about us and having a fresh blowout is practically paramount to a fresh perspective on life.
And yes, that’s a pug keychain on my purse. Hubby bought it for me a few years ago for those days when I can’t just stay home and hang out with our dogs. But now I’ve confessed to the truth — I really am that “crazy pug lady”!
The crazy pug lady with a killer blowout!
