How often do you go to the movie theater?

That’s the problem with sports teams you rally behind. They disappoint more than they delight. How can I really write about the Spartans after yet another humbling defeat? Yes, they will beat Indiana, but who knows about Iowa.

Beauty Buzz is finally here and it will be a true delight. Tickets available at the door, event starts at 4PM at the Motor City Casino Hotel.

Our PR maven was in Greece with her fiancé and they were touring the countryside when they noticed a lot of goats wandering. They stopped on the side of the road and rolled down the window. Surprise!

OPI Holiday just arrived and it looks like it is going to be a great Christmas for the nail industry.

Tigers won consecutive divisions for the first time since the 1930’s? Now they are playing at home this weekend with the temperatures getting into the 30’s. Does baseball really need to be played in October? Go Tigers!

Romney wins the first debate and unemployment comes out today at 7.8%, first time in 44 months the number has been below 8%. Now economists and other professionals are questioning the number and saying it is preposterous and wrong. No doubt about it and you sit and wonder what information they feed us is really right.

Is gas at $4 a gallon a foregone conclusion and that we should all get ready for $5 a gallon? Isn’t it amazing that when it hit $3 a gallon the fallout there was in the media. Now at $4 a gallon, it’s no big deal.

I can’t even tell you the top 3 movies being played in theaters. Or the top 10 songs. There was a time I knew every movie and virtually every song. Who goes to the movies anyway?

Hewlett-Packard Co. is the latest company to face extinction. Really? They invented the printer for crying out loud. Wait, who uses printers anymore? Wait, who prints photos anymore? When was the last time you went into a 20-30 age something household and saw a photo album?

You know we have come a long way into the annoyance department when our biggest annoyance is the new iPhone 5 maps.

It’s time for a new food trend. Burgers and steaks are overdone, Mexican is overkill and seafood is well, too expensive. Red Lobster is redoing their menu and introducing something brand new. Ready? Chicken. WOW! In fact, more than half the menu will feature items under $15 and not seafood. Got to love it when chicken is a new item. But seriously, what new food trend can we come up with?

Have you ever played iPad slots? YIKES!

Happy Friday!

When are you buying the iPhone 5?

Week 2: MSU 41, CMU 7. Spartans now ranked #9 according to AP. Next up: Notre Dame. Big game Saturday night at Spartan Stadium. Can the Spartan’s make it 16 in a row at home? One note of interest was that this was MSU’s first appearance at Central. The game had a record attendance of more than 35,000 and both marching bands joined in at the end of halftime. Very cool.

Both the LIons and Wolverines were lucky to pull out victories. Let’s see what happens when they play quality teams. And yes, it has been a while since Spartan’s had bragging rights.

My yoga teacher today repeated a well know proverb, “How you do anything is how you do everything.” One of the best.

Beauty Buzz is less than a month away, hard to believe. It’s going to be a fabulous program and a huge fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. It is October 7, 4-6PM at the Motor City Casino Hotel Sound Board. Visit for more info.

Over Labor Day, Carter came in to visit. Now 7 months old and already eating real foods and standing up. It is very cool watching the growing up process all over again. All of a sudden, 18 years from birth to college doesn’t sound like a long time.

Mitch Albom has yet another book out, this one about time, The Time Keeper. I have not read the book but it starts out about the person who actually decided to come up with a way of keeping track of time. This lead to a day, week, month and year concept. Albom discusses what it would be like if we had no calendars, no watches and no time to pay attention to. What I have always found fascinating about time is that everyone complains they never have enough of it. But when it comes to finding time to do things they really want to do like go on vacation, people always find the time for that. One subject that Albom recently wrote about in the Sunday Free Press is how time eludes us quickly and there is a reason why we don’t live forever. One comment he made that resonates is why do we want more time? So many people are in a routine and they don’t want to step outside that routine even for important events. Time marches on, it’s what we do with it that counts.

Moroccanoil Body hits salons and spas this month. Premium retail line, premium pricing and premium packaging. Retail prices range from $10 to $52. It will be interesting to see which, if any, argon oil hair care companies follow suit.

ULTA announces record earnings and store revenue once again driving the stock to over $100 a share.

Joico is updating its entire line with new packaging for 2013. The current packaging never took off and word is that the new packaging will feature brighter and bolder colors. Hmm, wonder if ULTA buyers had a say in this?

Jan Arnold is the mastermind behind Shellac and the co-founder of CND. Jan is hosting perhaps her last really big Shellac class in Detroit October 8. The event has sold out but we have added another 50 tickets due to demand. If you are into gel color, then this class is a must. You will be amazed at what you can do with Shellac and a few nail art items to create amazing nails.

Wednesday Apple will unveil the iPhone 5. This will be the most incredible smart phone of all, at least for the next few months. Larger screen, 4LTE technology, perhaps NFC technology (to scan credit cards without taking them out of your purse or wallet), navigation that talks while you drive, online music streaming (good-bye Pandora) and a whole bunch of more stuff that we didn’t know we needed. The iPad Mini will be even more fun.

Happy Monday!

What favorite food will you be indulging in this weekend?

I was in LA for a couple days and met with the Cuccio team in regards to the polish and gel color launch. Demand has outstripped supply and seeing firsthand the production team filling bottles, it was decided best to launch January 2013 instead of now. The good news is that Cuccio will be fully prepared at that time to meet the needs of everyone and instead of launching 24 shades of Veneer, all 60 shades will be available.

Moroccanoil is launching their body line next month and they will be yet another hair care company trying to bust into the spa market. The pricing is high but the packaging is exquisite. The line will only be available to Loyalty salons and those that spend at least $1000 a month making it more exclusive. Based on Moroccanoil’s success, if any company can make it in the spa arena, it will be them.

Pinch me but today really isn’t the last day of August, is it? And surely the last summer holiday weekend doesn’t start tomorrow. YIKES, those yellow school busses will be on the road next week???

Our seven-month old grandson is coming in and already the BUB is making him fresh foods just for him. And of course the fruits and veggies are organic. I don’t even get organic produce! And you should see the high chair.

College football season kicks off this weekend with STATE playing a really big game tonight and that school in Ann Arbor playing a really big game as well. My prediction: MSU: W  The other school: L

OPI’s Germany collection blew away the previous collections hands-down. Does the name of the collection or the colors of the collection matter most?

It’s hard to believe Beauty Buzz is only 5 weeks away. The MSU dance team will be performing live, more Spartan spirit. One of the highlights will be Jonathan Antin live, he has quite a show planned.

Cyclists have the same right of way on the road as automobiles. What are your thoughts on that?

Apple vs. Samsung. USA vs. Korea. There are more Samsung devices sold that Apple. Does anyone care what country any product comes from anymore? Meanwhile, Apple wins their lawsuit in the USA and loses in Japan. What does that say?

Mitt has wrapped up the Republican convention along with Ron Paul. November will surely be interesting.

John Heffner is OPI’s new President. He has nails in his blood.

Everyone is loving our new Flagship store and Academy. The most amazing thing is that some customers didn’t even know we had the Academy in the old location. Really?

Forget vampires and wizards. The hot thing now is Dominator’s and Submissive’s. More than 20 million copies of 50 Shades of Grey have already been sold. And now come the copy cats by the dozens.

100 million less people went to the movies over the summer. I can’t remember the last time I went.

Happy Friday!
