Confessing on Hair, Frankenweenie, & Cheese Momos!

I confess that I am now completely in love with Aveda Natural Lifestyle Salon.  When I was a little girl my Aunt Darlene or Cousin Camille would cut and dye my hair for me.  After moving too far away from them, I’ve become the “quick stop at Great Clips for a cheap and easy hair-cut, then box dye it at home” girl.

Julie recommended that I drop that habit and accompany her to Aveda (she has a specific stylist she goes to named Jordan) so she could get free shampoo and conditioner for the referral.  So she made us an appointment, her with Jordan and I with Jaimie.  I’m glad I went, because it was the best hair cut I’ve ever had.

Jaimie made me tea and then sat me down and told me to close my eyes.  She then went on to give me a full scalp, neck, and sholder massage with amazing peppermint scented oil.  After that the wash, and the most detailed cut I’ve ever had.  To finish, she did my makeup with their mineral makeup.

It couldn’t have looked better, and I will be going to her FOREVER from now on.  I was only sad that styling it on my own will never look as good as it did when she finished it up.

I really loved that the Salon didn’t smell like chemicals.  It smelled like herbs and essential oils.  It was a lovely and relaxing experience.

I confess that I love having lady dates with Julie. After our haircuts we walked over to the chocolate shop, then stopped at Hot Topic so I could buy a new nose-ring, then we did various other shopping-including for shoes.  Isn’t Julie’s haircut super cute too?

I confess that I also fell in love with this little Frankenweenie necklace and have been wearing it since!

I confess that I’m super addicted to House of Tibet, the restaurant.  I love cheese momos and now Julie is addicted with me too! :)  Their tea is amazing too, even the traditional Tibetan Butter Tea.

I confess that work has been super stressful lately.
I confess that part of me wants something more… Something different… But I have no idea what that would be or how to get there.
I confess that I wish I could go back to school full time, but have no idea how I would ever even begin to afford it.
What are you confessing?

    Come Say HI

  • Beth Wade

    Aw, yay for great hair! 😀

    AND for Frankenweenie…that necklace is adorable.

    As far as change goes, I do still recommend What Color Is Your Parachute, for ideas. If you're feeling restless and unfulfilled, it's gonna show at work, so best to start that transformation now. Even if you just start a list of "things I LOVE doing", and go from there. Far cheaper than college for figuring out what you want to do as a career (and also, more helpful. Trust me- I did university AND grad degree courses before realizing that college does not get you squat in a career unless you're in academia or medicine).

    I love your hair! It's amazing to get such great treatment, isn't it??

    And that Sparky necklace is SO adorable! I confess I can't wait for the movie to come out so I can finally talk about it!
