If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that my favorite contestant from Idol last season was Stefano Langone. When I found out that he would be performing at the Dunkin Donuts Music Lounge I entered 300 times to make sure I would win. There would be 15 winners. Turns out – only 8 girls ended up entering so I could have gotten away with entering only once… but I had no idea how popular he was with anyone else.
He was scheduled to do a performance / live chat at noon but it got pushed back to 1pm. Fortunately I ended up taking the day off after the crazy airport drama so I had no problem hanging around. Only 2 other girls ended up showing up. I was glad for that because I thought it would be really awkward if it was just me in the room and him singing haha
He did 3 songs from his upcoming album (he said it is probably going to be out late summer / early autumn) and they were called Last Day, Cherry on Top and Yes To Love. Then he gave us an extra song – If You Don’t Know Me By Now. All the songs from his album were great and I really can not wait for it to come out! He didn’t do his current single, I’m on a Roll because it was just him and a piano and he said he couldn’t do it with just the piano.
After the performance we got to meet him – and he actually said he remembered me from VIP over the summer. How crazy! I’m sure he met a ton of people… he also remembered my name from when I introduced myself before his performance so he must just have a really awesome memory. He also told me to tweet him so he can follow me on twitter – and now he is!
He’s such a sweet guy and I really hope that his cd does well and I get to see him again and again 🙂
I have frizzy hair. I hate it, but there isn’t much I can do about it. Until now! Garnier Fructis has come out with a new line of shampoos and conditioners. I’ve been using “Sleek and Shine” which contains some “fruit science” – apricot oil and ultra-smoothing Argan Oil from Morocco. Sleek and Shine will keep your hair sleek for a full 3 days, even in 97% humidity!
Usually, shampoos that promote “anti frizz” or anything of that sort end up weighing down your hair with a nasty residue in order to make your hair too heavy to frizz up. I don’t like using this products because they don’t leave my hair feeling clean when I am out of the shower. My natural wavy and curlyness to my hair also gets weighed down. Garnier Fructis’ Sleek and Shine does not do this at all. In fact, the first time I used the shampoo and conditioner I went to bed right after. I woke up with some ridiculous bed head (I really wish I took a photo) and the whole right side of my head was one GIANT curl. I obviously brushed it out because it was a bit extreme of a hairdo to try and wear out in public, but the fact that my hair curled to that extreme just shows you that the shampoo didn’t leave my hair weighed down – AND there was noticably less frizz. (I’d say 90% of my usual daily frizz was gone – which is amazing.)
Another great thing about these new Garnier products is that they come in Eco-Fructis Bottles. It is a new lighter bottle design made of PET and 30% recycled products. You really can’t go wrong there – shampoo and conditioner that is great for your hair and great for the environment too!
