the perfect shampoo
i swear i've been on the hunt for the perfect shampoo for the past 15 years or so. i think i've finally found it! all hail origin's tealights for red hair. just glorious. i'd been loyal to kiehl's tea tree oil shampoo for more years than i can count and i'd been looking for something new. i'm also very pleased with origins happy endings conditioner and their supermane tamer. seriously, in the past two weeks i've never received soooo many compliments on my hair. the search for the perfect shampoo has officially ended. whew. xoxo to origins!

go font yourself!
i love the idea of this but the price tag [$94.99! ouch] is a bit much. basically, you send chank a sample of your handwriting and he turns it into a font for you. a font of your own handwriting! that's a pretty festive idea, but they need to slash that price in half.
