Ham that I am


Hey girls,
How was Halloween? Mine was absolutely the most RANDOM October 31st I've ever experienced in all my 18 years. Okay, so I was at home, getting all done-up in my Flamenco Girl costume (Apollonia, bless her heart, just didn't come together at the last minute...next year, I swear) in preparation for a glamorous night of party-hopping with my friend Malcom. Out of the clear blue, I get an urgent call from the New York Post, asking me if I'd like to cover the famous New York City Village Halloween Parade for their online video series. Ham that I am, I was out the door in less time than it takes for LiLo to fall off the wagon. Long story short, I met up with their cameraman, a darling young man named Barnaby, and proceeded to lose my mind. For those of you who've never been to The Parade, let me walk you through it. Imagine pure New York City bedlam, complete with all varieties of Inappropriate Britneys, Bloodied Amy Winehouses, Smoking & Pregnant Nicoles, and an onslought of giddy, half-naked drag boys spray painted in day-glo colors. It was insane, and I had a ball. Check out the deeply embarrassing results on New York Post Online (or click SEARCH and type in Tia Williams). And if you notice a lot of shimmying on my part, just be happy they didn't include the part when I jumped in front of the Carribbean float and did Dutty Wine with all the carnival gyals. Somebody stop me!

No, I'm serious. Somebody stop me.


My night didn't end there, of course. I did end up meeting fabulous Malcolm, and we did proceed to party-hop throughout the Meatpacking District. And as the night wore on, my hair got frizzier and frizzier (it was humid and there was tons of dancing to an unutterably divine Prince medley). Luckily, in the club bathroom there were tons of amenities for this very problem. Being me, I immediately honed in on Redken All Soft Gold Glimmer Shine Treatment ($12.05)--and I instantly rubbed the silky gel over my cracked-out ponytail. And girls, you would not believe the difference. I'd always heard murmurs about how miraculous this stuff is...and in fact, I remember going to the event when it launched. Not only is the Glimmer Shine Treatment chock full of frizz-fighting, hair-softening ingredients like avocado and olive oil, it has actual gold sparkles in it! Of course, they don't really show up in your hair, but there is a certain mirror-like gloss effect that's not to be denied. Long story short (too late), I'm now obsessed with it, and am ordering at least two bottles.

xoxo,
Tia

I had to reread that 'all my 18 years' comment. Very funny, nice post as usual.

Loved the video! I laughed out loud when that creature walked up behind you while you were focusing on the camera and you were totally oblivious. Great job!

You doll! The video was great!

Thanks for the tip on the fizz-fighting, shine-inducing Redken. Will definitely have to pick some up.

You are the ultimate ish. Most would balk at the last minute invite _but to be so togetha just on gp that you can be ready for your closeup on any given Sunday_ you are indeed worthy of praise and admiration. I would love to see you on any of the nightly entertainment shows. Also love the way your coverage was culturally diverse. Keep doing you boo.....Here's to always being fabulous.

Great job Tia! You are so good at what you do whether on camera, magazines or blogging. Keep up the good work because you are truly an inspiration to so many girls and women.

I've been in NYC almost 5 years and I've never gone to the parade either. Maybe next year I'll check it out.

You are great on camera! I'm with everybody else - you need to be somebody's correspondent.

Redken - I am there! I LOVE Redken products. They helped me get my hair back after an ill-advised bout with at-home perming.
