Tuesday I hit up Book Expo America, or as Stephen Colbert described it, "The Lollapalooza of quietly reading to yourself."
There's something incredibly special about being in a Convention Center filled with books and the people who love them, as well as tons of authors reading from and signing books.
After the Book Expo, I headed to Duane Reade to try a brand-new hair product from Unilever, Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy, as part of the Duane Reade's VIP Blogger program .
I was already sorta dying to try Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy because I've been seeing the TV ads with Heidi Klum, and um, well, who wouldn't want to look like that?

I spent a long time debating (in my head, not out loud) which of the formulas was the right one for me. In the end I opted for Total Care.
I also got a bag of deLISH organic lollipops for my son, the self-appointed Lollipop King.
Outside, I admired the flowers. Leave it to Duane Reade - and Manhattan - to make the front of a midtown drug store this gorgeous.
Back home, I gave a very happy Lollipop King the bag of lollipops:
The next day I showered and tried my new Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy products, with great success - and they smell amazing, too.
I am totally sold on the idea that the secret to hair care is by cultivating a healthy scalp.
And I was very happy to be having a good hair day because I went to hear the one and only Jenny Lawson - better known as The Bloggess - give a reading and book signing for her new release, Let's Pretend This Never Happened, right here in New Jersey.
And here my clear scalp and I are meeting her:
I was so happy with my good hair day, I even snapped another photo of me reading my new book when I got home:
