Out Of My Mind On A Friday Mornin’

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!

How much are you going to spend for Christmas gifts this year?

OMG! The game of the decade, way more satisfying than beating up U-M the previous week (although that was quite tasty too). Spartans surge to #9 in front of Wisconsin and Nebraska. BIG GAME next Saturday against Nebraska. STATE will win that one too. OMG!

Michigan State edges Wisconsin, 37-31

And then you have the Detroit Lions. How pathetic was that performance? No doubt Stafford has been injured since game 5 and playing injured without letting anyone know. His crushing end in the fourth quarter may be telling. But the Lions are faltering and faltering at the wrong time.

Why can we make a right turn on red but can’t go straight through on red? How many times are we sitting at an intersection with absolutely no cars coming on either side? Just think how many gallons of gas we would save.

Groupon is doing its roadshow over the next two weeks to convince investors that they are worth $11 Billion. Really? Is Groupon going to be around in a year or so?

Amazon.com not content on providing the world with just about everything is testing same day grocery delivery in Seattle.

I broke down and bought the iPhone 4S which replaces my outdated 3. Apple has once again delivered. SIRI which they acquired earlier in the year is one of the star attractions. Once again, a woman’s voice tells us what to do, how to do it and all the information we need to know. Brilliant.

How much longer will Ficano be employed? The bigger question is how can one governmental office investigate another governmental office? It seems like elected officials are only interested in staying in office as long as they possibly can, collect as much money as they possibly can, and collect enough favors so when they leave office they are well off. In regards to the voters who put them in office. . .YIKES!

What are you doing for 11.11.11? It’s going to be a BIG wedding day for sure. For one, we are going to offer the entire Cuccio line Buy 1, Get 1 FREE (limit 3 each)!

Are you into Zumba? Who dreams up these new exercise schemes?

You got to hand it to John DeJoria. Not satisfied with Paul Mitchell, he developed Patron into a powerhouse brand. Now comes the new Patron ultra-premium in a crystal bottle with even bigger margins and here comes Ultimat, the new premium vodka to compete with Grey Goose and Belvedere. And here comes Mitch, his new men’s line that is ultra-chic and targeting Crew big time.

Nostalgia is going to be the next big thing. With social unrest brewing, people will thrive for the fun and frivolity of the 50’s. But here’s the thing, there were no cell phones, texting or Facebook back then.

Happy Monday and GO STATE!
