We March ON! By Karen McGovern

Hello all! First things first. HOW DO YOU PEOPLE WHO LIVE UP NORTH DEAL WITH STATIC ELECTRICITY??? We got our first major cold snap last night--the temps dipped into the high 50s and I'M LOOSING MY MIND. In Florida terms this is an apocalyptic weather event and I am completely immobilized by this alien effect you call "static". What is this? Why is my hair standing straight up and sticking to everything? I feel like my head is covered by spiderwebs--It's driving me MAD I TELL YOU! As I type this in the darkened dining room (it's 6:00 am) I can see strands of my hair waving around my face in the light of the laptop screen LIKE IT'S ALIVE. Static is gross and I demand that it stop IMMEDIATELY. I WANT MY HUMIDITY BACK!!



There, I feel better (not). 

Second--thank you for all the comments on the bangle post!! I love the direction so many of us want to take into 2016. More inward development and less outward (I'm so fat, I need to look better) fears. I applaud you all, and hope that we move towards a peaceful and fulfilling year. I hope all your goals and dreams come to fruition and I know that if we all can take a few minutes a day for JUST US, we can become the best version of ourselves. Take that class, read a TON of good books, learn as much as you can, make a ton of art and GROW!!!

The lucky gal who will soon be wearing an AWESOME set of copper bangles is....

BROOKE BOCK!!! 



Congrats, Brooke, please get in touch with me so I can send you the set. I hope you wear them every day and enjoy!!!!!

Thanks again, you are all warriors capable of incredible things--NOW GO MAKE SOMETHING AMAZING!

Love the static pic!! I have to keep John Freida's Frizz-ease on hand and this year I got a new one from Garnier Fructis called Anti-humidity smoothing milk. Without these products my hair stand on end but with them it looks fantastic this time of year, super shiny and straight for once! Humidity is just not nice to my hair but such is life! I also get shocked every time I touch anything remotely metal...or alive!! If anyone has a solution for that I would love to hear it!

Congratulations to Brooke. Ohhh my son lives in Florida he is also freezing. The static, good old fashion hair spray. Like Aquanet. Not the pump style that doesn't work. You need just a little on your hair and clothes. Stay warm

Thanks so much Karen! I am so stinking surprised and pleased...I so love your work. I am going to wear these babies every day. Thank you!!

A leave-in conditioner for hair works for me! And we try to add humidity to our homes up north - a humidifier attached to the furnace, or open trays of water can be disguised with pebbles and used as drip trays under our plants.

LOL - there is a little appliance, called (imagine that!) a "humidifier" - solves most of our cold-snaps (or cold-continuously) problems :)

i think if you use water. Yep, it's simple, but it still works
