I get so excited when I pick up hints from trip reports.
We are going to Vero soon and I will definitely go to Farrara Bakery!
I'm from Oregon, so not a lot of Italian anything here.
I loved going to Boston and visiting the bakeries where they tied the box with strings. (Isn't it funny how the little things make us most excited).
I hope they have cannoli, because I love, love, love them.

I'm also really enjoying your trip report!

Hi Emma,
I did read your other trippie, and just loved it. Your bright, shining personality really shines through!

I love the pics at Vero Beach, and we will definitely have to go there. I will also check out the Italian bakery. I love them!

Can't wait to hear about the rest of the trip.

Great trip report!!!!! That is really a beautiful sunrise. Mmmmmmm, those desserts sounds yummy.

I would like to know what "the product" is that you use for your hair. I have several products that I use, but I always need more. I do love my flat iron. Of course being near Dallas with tropical storm Erin and hurricane Dean coming my hair doesn't have a chance.

Can't wait to hear about your first day at Disney!!!!

Fan-tab-ulous installlment Emma!

1. I Vernor's gingerale! It's the best.
2. Your pics are terrific-- especially the beach ones! (and yes, I found the crab b/f your help! )
3. I may have to try out Vero Beach if for nothing else than for the Italian bakery! Sounds delish!

Loving your report - glad you are now on your way to WDW!!!

I found the crab without your circle Now, how your brother found it in the sand - who knows??

What product do you use in your hair to control frizz? I might need to know when I get to Florida.

WDW Poly Princess and Lifelong_dreamer...yup! It's the Princess Bride! I love that story! I'm not much of a fight-scene kinda girl usually, but that sword fight between Inigo and Wesley...it's almost too clever to be called a word with such brutish associations as the word "fight." It's more like...a clash of wit and steel...

VanniGirl...Thanks!

TinkerChelle...Hooray for Disney Snobs! Welcome!

myrsfmly...Thanks!

celerystalker and 5o years Too!...The bakery was really delicious! And I DO recall seeing cannolis!

lgcountry...aww thanks! My mom loves bakeries too. On the way back, she was telling me how she went to some party at an old friend of my grandma's house in New York, and all the old ladies had brought different desserts from their favorite Italian bakeries and they were debating which was best (the ladies were debating, not the desserts)! The desserts were incredible, apparently.

BeautyluvsBeast...glad you're enjoying it! Stay tuned for the secret hair-straightening potions!

disney0704 and luvmyboys...Yay Vernors! I hope they have it in the dining hall at my college.

LISAMWDW, Princess.Rachel, SwansLoveDisney, and crgfsu...More is coming up soon!

But first...the Disney way to straight hair!

Sarah's Secret Potions

Since several people (OK...2...) asked about the potions I used to straighten my hair, I thought it might be fun to do a little time travel and tell you about it.

See, I learned how to straighten my hair at Disney World. It was the fall break of my freshman year of high school, and my mom had made a surprise visit to the salon at Coronado Springs (for the life of me I can't remember the name of it...but this is the DIS, I'm sure somebody else can...). Anyway, I had never straightened my hair before then. In fact, I had a pretty hard time with my hair, since I didn't have a really good way of curling it into nice, tame curls either (now I use the method of doing lots of little braids all over my head...that works really well).

But back to the straight. We went in and a really nice lady named Sarah was my "stylist." And my mom took notes on what she did. What did she do?

1. Make sure your hair is totally dry. TOTALLY dry. Straight hair's worst enemy is moisture.

2. It's easier if you separate your hair into sections and do each section separately. I separate mine into three sections: left, right, and back. The back, as you may imagine, looks worst.

3. Mix your first two potions: BioSilk Silk Therapy (or cure soyeuse as the bottle says in French...it comes in a cream-colored bottle) and StraightSexyHair Power Straight Straightening Balm (this comes in a silver and red tube). Just put a little of each into the palm of your hand and smush them together. Then apply to the section of hair you're working on.

**Side note...I have to admit, Sarah added ANOTHER potion to the mix...Redken 5th Ave NYC Thermal Setting Mist: Maximum Control. I have found that it works just as well without it (no offense Sarah!).

4. Get out your flat iron. Sarah used a Chi Turbo. Also get out the flat iron spray: HealthySexyHair Flat Iron Spray. Taking small sections of hair, spray it, then slowly flat iron it. Pin it up on the top of your hair and continue

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you've finished all the sections of your head.

It took Sarah an hour (because I had and still have pretty long hair!), but this worked brilliantly for my hair, and it stayed flat ALL vacation (if you'll believe that!) For Christmas that year, there was one big giant box under my part of the tree. It had the flat iron and the different potions. I was so excited!

I've sometimes altered Sarah's recipe over the years (to economize), but the only thing you can really lose without losing flatness is the thermal setting mist mentioned after step 3. I have substituted different flat iron sprays in step 4. I actually found that Flatliner Osis+ by Schwarzkopf Professional works better on my hair. I think there have been a few times, when my mom straightened my hair for me, that the flatness rivaled that which Sarah produced, but only a few times.

On this (July 2007) vacation, I only brought along the flat iron spray, and I think that's why I was so unable to reflatten it! I should've brought the biosilk too, but I didn't want my dad to complain about "Why is your bag always so FULL?"

So there you have it. The DISNEY way to straight hair, according to Sarah at Coronado Springs. It's worked very well for me, so I would certainly recommend it!

Best wishes for flat hair!
Emma

P.S. Real update tomorrow morning!

In all seriousness, this may be the most useful information I've gathered here on the DIS. I am going out ASAP in the morning for all of the aforementioned products.

If successful, Emma may very well end up being my sole heir! (sorry boys that I luv!)
