To my surprise, someone taps me on my shoulder and I couldn’t believe that it was Carol Gadd. I haven’t seen her since 2008 at my first gallery showing in Scottsdale, AZ.

Thank you Cathy Shaffer for taking me to this. Music is my universe and it heals my soul!

 A small hang after his @buildseriesnyc interview talking about his new children's book HEAL THE EARTH.  Normally I have to color my roots within 3 weeks because if it’s fast growth. Having used #oVertonecolorconditioner, the Extreme Purple conditioner and deep treatment, I don’t need to color my hair so quickly. My roots are now in a lavender color. More people notice my hair is now purple courtesy of #manicpaniccolor, Purple Haze and to #oVertoneConditioners.   I’ve never found these in my grocery stores in NY. These were on the shelf in a store in Liverpool. Hmmm
 Yesterday it was my friend Deborah’s birthday. We had gone out to hear some good music at The Cutting Room the night before. Also there was my friend Eve Brandstein ... it was a girls night out in The Big Apple.  Mother/daughter time. Out to see the play #Hamilton with my friends. Amazing talent on that stage. Great time.  Always knew my daughter had flair...she loves her cosplay to this day!
 At Meow Parlour with Sebastian. We are hanging with Josie.  The chef, Christopher, made the dinner last night with the help from his sous chef, his girlfriend and my daughter, Lara. Delicious!  Maria (Nick’s mom and soon to be mom-in-law to Melanie), Lara, Melanie and me at Thanksgiving Dinner tonight. Nick cooked an amazing dinner. Ate too much!
