Goody’s new up-do pin is a fall down mess

I am always very excited to try new things and Goody’s new up-do pin was no exception! I was able to twist and put it into position and my hair did look fabulous (minus the slight pain of the ends digging into my scalp). But HEY– sometimes we suffer for beauty, verdad?

Well, my up-do lasted about 10mins. before my long thick Sonoran hair exploded! The pin went flying and “ping”ed against the wall. While, this hair falling show was appreciated by those around, I have to say – if you have thick hair… this is not the up-do pin for you.

Wrist pocket, wrist purse, wrist wallet, whatever, it is GREAT!

Best Fashion Invention since the zipper! Seriously. How many times do you get all dressed up and don’t have a pocket and really really need one?! Or you want to go out to a bar or dancing and really don’t want to carry a purse!? Well, someone has finally done it… a purse you carry like a thick bracelet. Not only are they great if you are going for run or jog or to the gym but they are also great for traveling!

I found these a couple months ago at REI and have fallen in love. They make great presents! Everyone that sees mine goes out right away and gets one! It is just logical to have one or more of these in your purse collection.

Sonoran Summer Style

I love this time of year… the monsoons. It turns our normal brown desert into a lush green jungle of weeds and bushes. But with the rain comes “monsoon style”. Remember, here in the Sonoran Desert, the summers mean 100+ degree temps -even when it is raining! So, the syles that come along with that are interesting.

  The one I have noticed this summer though is worth mentioning. I have seen many gals in cowboy boots and skirts and shorts. The function of cowboy boots in the rain is very logical but I did not know how much I really like the look! Short skirt or shorts with a cute pair of boots and you are a desert fashionista!
