We Whip Our Hair Back and Forth

I just saw Willow Smith’s video “Whip My Hair” for the first time.  And I’d like to say: I whip my hair back and forth too.  At least in my mind I do!

Peach and I were just watching the video together, and I think she thought I was going to hate it, or think it was weird or something…

Peach:  Like you hate MOST music!

Mom:  No I don’t!

Peach: Now you do!  Like Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha…

[Mom:  At least I knew to put the dollar sign in “Ke$ha”!]

Anyway!  I happened to like it!  I think it’s amazing that she has such presence at – what, NINE years old??  But she is Will Smith’s daughter!  (And the beautiful Jada Pinkett Smith’s as well…)

I don’t like rap, and I never will, but I do like the message of this song, which I think is: be yourself; don’t let haters get to you – just whip your hair back and forth!

Peach just got back from visiting her best friend in Atlanta for a few days before Xmas, and they whipped their hair back and forth quite a bit!  And had to stand all the way across the room from each other to do it….


Pre-order Taylor Swift’s new album SPEAK NOW

Are you going to get Taylor Swift’s new album? Why not pre-order it now right here? Go to my shop called Lauren’s Taylor Swift SPEAK NOW Shop! You can buy the album in different packages.

The Glitter Package comes with a copy of SPEAK NOW, a Speak Now bracelet, and a note from Taylor. Guess how much it is – only $15.00!

The Sparkle Package comes with a copy of SPEAK NOW, a Speak Now bracelet, a note from Taylor, and a limited edition 26 inches in width and 11 inches in height lithograph of Taylor and her band. All that is only $39.00!

Taylor’s album is coming out on October 25, 2010, so this is one of your last chances to pre-order it and be one of the first to get it!

And in full disclosure, Lauren does get a small commission if you purchase a package from her Taylor Swift shop. (Mom here!)

We LOVE Taylor Swift, and have been to two of her concerts! Although both concerts were in the Fearless tour, and were nearly identical, it was just as entertaining the second time around. She’s a spectacular showperson!

We’re both really looking forward to the new album, and naturally we’ve already pre-ordered ours! Get in on it quick while you can still get these fun Taylor-made packages that go with the CD. Here’s the link again: Lauren’s Taylor Shop

Demi Lovato at MOA

Yesterday we were so excited to go the the Mall of America (MOA) – partly to do school clothes shopping (which, by the way, is a definite FAIL at MOA on a Saturday afternoon….), but mostly because Demi Lovato was going to be there signing autographs!

Our nanny, ecbaby, had found that little tidbit of info online and passed it on to Peaches.  They forgot to look into the fine print, though, and at 10:00am I discovered (to my horror), that you had to have been in line, with your brand new Demi Lovato CD in hand, at 7:00am that morning to get wristbands in order to stand in line for autographs from 1:00pm-2:30pm.  AUGH!

Well, disappointed as Peaches was, we went anyway, and were able to get a pretty good look at Ms. Lovato from the second floor overlooking the rotunda where she was. (A sort of bemused and half-dejected Jordan Pruitt was sitting all alone at the next table, where some girls even passed her by for autographs because they were so busy gazing at the sig they had just gotten from Demi).

My camera, sadly, stinks. So what we had when we got home were 48 fuzzy pics of Demi and Jordan. AUGH again!

Peaches’ take on the experience:  Really disappointed that we hadn’t known about the wristband thing (I mean really, who knew?), but still thrilled to have at least glimpsed them.  Her quote of the day, made after we walked away from the second floor railing:  “Really Mom, if the floor had been closer to the ceiling, or the ceiling had been closer to the floor, I would’ve jumped down there!”  I love that Peach.  She’s always thinkin’.

Peach is determined that next time one of her favorite celebs is in town, we will be there at 5:00am, to wait for the 7:00am wristbands, to get in line for the 1:00pm signing. Right, Peach. Right.
