Emily is a writer and beauty expert. She has a terrific blog and is tons of fun to tweet with, particularly about shows like The Bachelor.

She also has great enough hair that she’s not afraid to have her picture taken with the Connie Britton of Nashville and Friday Night Lights fame. Continue reading

Late to the Nashville party

Do you watch the TV show Nashville?

Via IMDB

I tuned in part way through season 2 and although it was clear I had missed a lot of characters’ backstory, I liked Nashville a lot.

On a recent flight, I had the chance to go back to the start of the show thanks to in-flight DIRECTV. I plowed through four or five episodes beginning with the pilot. I was hooked!

But getting caught up was hard. No Hulu, no Netflix and ABC.com only offers a few episodes free. My options for seeing the episodes were Amazon (not included in Prime) or through Verizon FioS for $1.99 per episode (SD; HD is $2.99 and I’m too cheap for that).

Given that ratings for Nashville have not been spectacular, one would think that ABC could throw would-be fans a bone. But no.

Anyway. I am caught up now and looking forward to more Juliette bitchface. Continue reading

How often do you wash your hair?

In a recent interview with People Magazine, Connie Britton said she only washes her hair about once a week.

I was shocked.

My skin and hair tend to be dry and yet I still wash my hair three to four times per week–more frequently if I go to the gym.

Unless I get a professional blowout, Day 1 tends to be my best hair day.

Day 2 requires decisions: do I go over it with a flat iron? Do I dampen my hair and wear it wavy, making the most of whatever happened during wild sleeping? Do re-blowdry the hair around my face?

Sometimes it’s just easier to wash and start over!

This week I made a conscious effort to see how long I could go without shampooing and conditioning my hair, washing it Tuesday morning. By Thursday, I was brushing my hair approximately hourly. I wanted so badly to hop in a shower and scrub my scalp and hair.

And truly, my hair looked like crap. By noon, it was in a sloppy ponytail.

Twitter Spotlight: Emily Brandwin

Here’s a first: a former spy in the Twitter Spotlight! Emily Brandwin who also goes by @CIASpyGirl on Twitter has also dabbled in stand up comedy as well as public relations.

Versatile? Yes.

When Emily and I met face to face for lunch in LA a few weeks ago, I tried not to obsess over her past spy work, but it was hard (at first). Fortunately she’s used to people like me acting like goofballs and patient about it. We’re still buddies.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@CIASpyGirl: My most favorite qualities in a love interest are sense of humor and talent. “Funny” and “talent” are a killer combo. I also look for generosity of spirit, intelligence, smarts (street smarts) compassion, beautiful eyes, wisdom and an ability to overlook a new purse purchase.

Your chief characteristic (one word)

@CIASpyGirl: Grateful.

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@CIASpyGirl: Sense of humor! My best friend @Eminmotion is hilarious. Continue reading
