New York City!

Posing with Orlando Pita!

Making a long haircut look short

A group of Prop. 9 protesters on the street... there were hundreds of them!

Some "queens" at a bar called Lips we stopped at for a drink... They performed for us even though there was no one in there. Hilarious!

Times Square

Hotel Gansevoort Rooftop bar

Dinner at the Spice Market

I just got back from New York City last night. I went with Misty, Lisa, Deborah, and Tanner for a once-in-a-lifetime Master Styling Class with Orlando Pita at Butterfly Studio on 5th Avenue. We couldn't believe we were invited! There were only 10 or so in the whole class... it was amazing. Orlando was very cool and he gave us a lot of his secrets. He cracked us up with stories of Gwenyth scared of getting her hair cut to styling Amy Winehouse for a Vogue shoot while she was... incapacitated! He said she had worn her hairpieces for three weeks straight and didn't wash her hair. Yuck! We got to do some hands-on with real models as well. The rest of our trip was lots of yummy food and shopping. The first night we went to Spice Market, then we went to the Hotel Gansevoort rooftop, Chloe 81 and another bar down the street. The next day we went sightseeing and shopping all day and ate at the Waverly Inn. The food was so wonderful, and the atmosphere was incredible. That night we went to a little hole in the wall bar and then a place called Room Service where we had bottle service. The next day was class, so afterward we went to Gramercy Tavern... my favorite meal of the trip. It was a five course menu and it was the best experience. No one could decide which restaurant was the best! I had the best time ever, but was so glad to come home. I missed my family!! Home, sweet Home!! xoxo
