The almost free haircut...

Monday 2 pm. The Di Pietro Salon is full. All the hairdressers are students. This is my big day. Well this is Frank's big day.

Meet Frank. 24 years old. Almost hairdresser, another year to go. Me? HIS MODEL!!! with an Iphone...

Meet the teacher...and again, my Iphone

The haircut that lasted for ever...well check the drawings in the folder

Here is the beautiful haircut. I took the picture..

On TV for the first time with BAD HAIR!!!

I decided to go to Ross today, meaning, I look like a ROSS shopper, no make up, jeans etc. I don’t go to Ross that often but I was looking for a specific coffee (Sarabeth New York) that I can only get there…While I was browsing, a young guy approached me. No, don’t think, flirting, because for sure, I did not look ‘hot’ at all.

He said he needed a model for tomorrow for a haircut with my hairstyle, meaning, messy and frizzy. The only time he had was 2 pm. So I signed up. A free haircut from the DePietro Salon…in Union Square normally costs 200 dollars. This one is free. Will show the results…on the blog bien sur.

Then I went to Macy’s ..can you believe Channel 5 CBS interviewed me about the construction project that is starting tomorrow, and will last for 9 years, along Macy’s Men entrance all the way to Neimann Marcus and I just saw myself on tv....looking like I needed a haircut so badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don’t believe it, I took advantage of Steve being away to be looking very relaxed and got a free haircut and a TV interview while walking! Details tomorrow on the haircut!

What a Sunday,

Puerto Vallarta - Images from Mexico

Going off season to Mexico...the best choice


Seen on the beach
"Santo Patrono de los cocineros, San Pascual Bailon" The sign says he was the "Saint for the Eucharistic Congress and the night life." His statue below... Well when you see how skinny he was, you wonder between the cooking, the Eucharistic Congress and the night life, how he kept on going...
Perfect dress for Valentines'Day ..Made in Mexico!!
Found in a mall. A genious coffee machine attached to a toaster oven...Made in Mexico!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Now I let you interpret what you wish: on the right, no smoking sign. On the left it is a "sperm" picture, not a computer I thought. We asked the taxi driver, he said "in the summer, the kids come and drink and..."He remained silent...So do you think...Fun sign right?

Not sure about this sign...Obviously the management was wrong since it is closed down.

Very small town in the North of Puerto Vallarta

Beautiful Church in Puerto Vallarta

Inside the gorgeous church "Our Lady of Guadalupe"

A beautiful tree..

Can anyone beat this pool? Length: 800 meters = approximately 1/2 mile!

Puerto Vallarta Airport. Very clever, to get to your gate, you have to walk through stores...
No that will not lead you to Liverpool.
