MONEY HAIR: Only people with big bank accounts can maintain this seemingly effortless look. (Matthew Bomer from White Collar)
VAMPIRE HAIR: The floppiness of the hair is key. VH is slightly derivative of River Phoenix hair. (Robert Pattinson)
DREAMBOAT HAIR: It’s not that you want to run your fingers through it (unless you have Handi Wipe present) but boy does it look good. (Jon Hamm as Don Draper)
SCOTTISH HAIR: The hallmark of Scottish hair is its ability to look great even when it’s messy. (Ewan McGregor)
SEAFARING ADVENTURE HAIR: This tossled look is perfect for the high seas. Ioan Gruffudd is from Wales, which is close enough to Scotland for him to pull it off (see Scottish Hair).
SPY HAIR: Daniel Craig's hair is as impeccable as the Brioni suits he wears. Very similar to Action Star Hair (see below).
SILVER FOX HAIR: Anderson Cooper works this hair like a pro. The gray hair on a SILFO actually looks better than their original color.
ISLAND HAIR: Sunshine and ocean air give Sawyer (Josh Holloway) the gift of natural highlights and good texture.
ACTION STAR HAIR: These guys can’t get bogged down with lots of hair because when you travel light, there’s no room for mousse. (Matt Damon)

A zebra named Yipes was the spokesanimal for the previously mentioned Fruit Stripe gum. This eco-friendly zebra key fob by Areaware reminds me of him. He sells for $18 at Velocity Art And Design.
PS: I wish Tootsie would be a spokesanimal. She's got the look and the focus. We'd be on easy street. That Geicko gecko has kind of played itself out.

At heart I'm a crunchy, but I certainly don't dress like one or god forbid smell like one. You can save the planet and not look like a Tolkien character with these fabulous Sea Bags made from recycled sailcloth. This anchor bag is available at Anthro for $118. Check out the Sea Bag site for more options.

There are precious few places that soothe my weary soul: Sephora when it first opens, a J.Crew sale rack in springtime and the beach. When I can't get seaside, I look at this beautiful book by French marine photographer Philip Plisson.
"A book for photography lovers, undersea adventurers, and those concerned with the future of the earth, this breathtaking volume celebrates, in 400 of Plisson's most evocative images, our never-ending fascination with the world's oceans and seas." -Abrams Online
The Sea sells for $35 at Barnes & Noble.

Celebrate earth month with the DVD No Impact Man, a documentary about how a family tries to leave no impact on the environment for one year. At first I thought it was going to be a story about self-righteous greenies, but it isn't. The wife goes kicking and screaming into this project which is what makes No Impact Man so watchable. It will make you think about what you can do to make the pebble a better place. Love the pebble. Check out the trailer.

It's comforting to know that they make cards for occasions such as this and how appropriate as I'm getting my colonoscopy today. I toyed with idea of live blogging the whole affair but decided against it. Here's hoping my colon is clean and healthy. Now, what am I going to wear?
This hip line of letterpress cards from Blue Barnhouse is available at Velocity Art And Design.

As you all know, I think Hugh Laurie is the greatest thing since sliced sourdough bread. Tonight's episode of House was directed by Laurie and the guest patient is the fabulous David Strathairn (loved him as Moss on The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd). “Lockdown” airs tonight at 8/EST on Fox. I can't wait! Click here for a preview.

I had grown quite fond of Project Runway contestant, Anthony Williams and was sad to see him eliminated (again) from Thursday's episode. A southern gentlemen is always a real treat and Anthony really brings it. I love that his genteel cadences are more befitting a Tennessee Williams' play. So fabulous! Click here for a medley of delightful Anthony moments.

This is Little Bird Blue. I found him wandering around my flowerless garden. He told me to be patient because in time the flowers will once again bloom. I paid him five dollars to tell me that.

I love that Grace Kelly is on the cover of the new Vanity Fair. It is, however, a sharp contrast to the inside story on the "ladies" that Tiger Woods got to know...biblically. Clearly, these "ladies" never studied Grace Kelly in their respective charm schools. If they had, things may have been different.
Only a hot tranny mess would miss out on Christian Siriano's Bravo special, Having A Moment. Go behind the scenes as the Project Runway winner puts together an undoubtably fierce line for fashion week. The one-hour spectacular airs tonight at 10/EST on Bravo.

STEP 1: Open the windows...unless the pollen count is too high.
STEP 2: Put on a babushka.
Just because you're cleaning doesn't mean you can't look cute.
STEP 3: Play my Spring Cleaning iMix and your house will practically clean itself!
