Luna - We're all still here.

A glowing example

I forgot to tell a story about something kinda cool I noticed a couple weeks ago!

My best friends and I are obsessed with this show on the Style Network called "How Do I Look?" They basically give someone a makeover who doesn't necessarily want one, throw out all their offensive clothing, and then also give them a choice of hair and makeup styles. Then the hostess shows the victim their choice between three collections, and to give them an idea of the hairstyle option, they get to see a picture of a celebrity who sports that hair. You know, so they can see how it looks on a real live human.

Anyway, long story short, the celebrities they show are usually the average ones. You know, Jessica Simpson, Sienna Miller, blah blah blah. So imagine my shock when on one of the recent new episodes, she goes, "Your hair could look like actress Jewel Staite..." and then they briefly showed Jewel getting interviewed! The person getting the makeover didn't seem to have a clue who she was, and I noticed they punctuated it by explaining she's an "actress" (which they usually don't do) but it still took me a second to compute that they were actually using Jewel as a fashion example!

Jewel Fan Scrapbook Campaign

Jewel-Staite.net is currently running a fan scrapbook campaign for Jewel. A scrapbook made by fans for Jewel. This will then get given to Jewel at September's Serenity Cubed.

All the info's at the site but the basic gist is that you can send anything in. Notes, poems, stories, photos, artwork, anything you want, just be as creative as you want.

I'll collect everything together, bind it up and give it to Jewel when i attend the convention. If you'd like to send anything in please email me at webmaster[at]jewel-staite.net and i can pass on my mailing address as to where you can send your stuff in for me.

If you have any questions let me know :)
