What’s New at Trixie’s Beauty Bar?
Trixie’s Whine with Wine, Reading-Optional, Book Club & Social Hour

 Bad Girls Go Everywhere

Tuesday, July 28 @ 7pm   (Right here in the salon)

Join us for socializing, cookie eating and wine drinking. Oh yeah, maybe we’ll talk about the book, too.

This month’s book? Bad Girls Go Everywhere by Jennifer Scanlon, a stellar biography of Helen Gurley Brown, the original Cosmo Girl & author of Sex and the Single Girl in 1962 (the foremother of Sex and the City). Like Mad Men? Read this book to get the real story of the times… See you there.

Tuesday, 2/24 at 7pm    Trixie’s Beauty Bar

We’ll have wine and snacks and good conversation.  (Maybe we’ll even talk about the book or something).  Can’t wait to see you!

What we’re reading right now:

Bitter is the New Black: Confessions of a condescending, egomaniacal,self-centered Smart-ass — or why you should never carry a Prada Bag to the unemployment office by Jen Lancaster

So, there’s been a lot of discussion around the salon lately (no, not everyone is talking about Sarah Palin, just mostly everyone) but, when we’re not doing that, we’ve been discussing the idea of making the book club into a reading-optional “social club.”  Whaddya think, gang?  We’ve always been pretty loosey-goosey about the whole book part of book club, but I certainly don’t want people to stay away because they haven’t read the book…

With that in mind, our next social hour will be Tuesday, September 30th at 7pm here at the salon.  I’ll bring cupcakes & champagne because it will also be the first celebration of my 40th birthday!  (October 1st)  Tyler is right behind me in November, so we’ll be accepting your love & birthday wishes for about 6 weeks altogether!  (We’re just a little excited, can you tell?)

If you want a book suggestion for this month, we’re checking out James Patterson’s Sundays at Tiffany’s.  See you in the salon!

Yaaay for Trixie’s All-Fun, Not-Very-Serious Book Club!

Steve Martin’s Senior PictureWe had a record number of folks (including some cool husbands) join us last week to discuss Steve Martin’s entertaining autobiography, Born Standing Up.  Best of all, one of our illustrious book club members actually attended Garden Grove High School with young Mr. Martin.  As you can see from some of these 1963 yearbook pictures, Martin was always a goofball (as well as a cheerleader) and clearly had no trouble being in front of an audience.  Enjoy! 

Next Meeting: Tuesday 3/25, 7pm — book still to be determined, I’ll keep you posted.

Pamela Anderson Got Married…Again! 

While we understand it isn’t really news, it did get us going on a pool to see how long this marriage will last.  Maybe this one will actually last five seconds longer than her series of weddings did with Kid Rock.  So far, we have bets ranging from 3 months to 8 months.  Care to wager?  The prize will be a voodoo doughnut from the Little Red Bike Cafe.  You know you want to…  Post a comment to participate.

While we’re on the subject of Pam and her foibles — you gotta see this one: a site that provides charts, graphs, and a photographic timetable of the development of Pamela Anderson’s boobs.  Just in case you were curious!

In other salon news…rococo.jpg

November’s meeting of the All Fun Book Club will be on Tuesday, 11/27 and we’ll be reading “Rococo” by Adriana Trigiani.  Do join us or feel free to participate here via the blog!  We have a lot of fun and hope to see you there.  We’ll also be getting ready for a rococo.jpgrococo.jpgHalloween party this weekend — if you need help with makeup, fake lashes or hair– do let us know, we still have appointments available on Sat 10/27.  Pictures to come…
