Try Dry

Hi gang. Yes, I'm still alive, and I'm sorry I've been sort of MIA these past two weeks. I've had a lot on my plate, and I've been a busy little bee, between hosting a wedding shower and bachelorette party last weekend, work projects, apartment projects, babysitting my niece, and helping out two friends with their upcoming nuptials. I've been so busy, in fact, that the blog isn't the only thing I've been neglecting. No, I haven't forgotten to feed my dog (or my husband), but I haven't been for a run since May, and I'll admit I've skipped a shower here and there as well. But don't worry, I have Spanx to hide the telltale extra jiggle in my thighs until I can find my way back to the gym.

And I recently also discovered a cheater way to "wash" my hair instantly. On those days when I'm running late somewhere I have to look presentable (which is pretty much everyday), and don't have time to wash and dry my hair, I simply spray in some of my new secret weapon, Klorane Dry Shampoo ($13 from You just spray it lightly around your roots- a little goes a long way (peeps with dark hair should be especially conservative), rub your head with a towel, and then run a brush through your locks. I've got the whole process down to under a minute (which beats my notorious marathon showers).

It basically absorbs and hides the greasiness from your 'do, leaving it looking and smelling fresh and clean, and easy to style (although I usually don't have time for that, either).  It's a miracle in a can, but it does have limitations- what you do about those stubbly legs and fragrant armpits is up to you.
