Special Projects: Brooklyn Art House Co-op’s The Sketchbook Project 2011

My sketchbook entitled, Book of Simple Pleasures: Happy Thoughts, will be part of The Sketchbook Project’s exhibition tour making its way across the country. After the tour, it will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where it will be barcoded and available for the public to view. TBAL is creating a digital companion of my sketchbook to accompany the Brooklyn Art Library’s hard copy.

Alterna’s White Truffle

Alterna has been receiving such excellent reviews from so many people that I decided to give them a try.  I’ve been using Alterna’s White Truffle Private Reserve & Caviar products (shampoo, conditioner, and hair serum) for a couple of months now and give them the thumbs up.  I really like what they have done for my hair: soft, silky, shiny, and lightly fragranced with no signs of harsh drying to my hair or scalp =).  I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to splurge a little.  Shop around; you can definitely find White Truffle at better prices.  If anyone is wondering about the scent, I would definitely describe it as a sweet floral.  Below is an official description of their product…
