Last June I got a treatment that helped to straighten and relax my hair. It was awesome through the whole summer and took less time to dry in the morning!
I actually think the treatment lasted through December because when I look back at photos my hair still looks relaxed. (Also I still think anesthesia from my surgery helped relax my hair too!)
Well, this month I could feel the difference in my hair. When it’s humid my hair feels so thick and unruly like it will barely fit into an elastic pulled back!
It was time for another treatment so I called to book an appointment. I also needed a color and cut which usually takes two hours so I figured that I’d be at the salon for at least four hours since the keratin is labor intensive!
My salon is my happy place. Love the ladies that work there. The chemical solution has to be put on my hair section by section and at one point two of the ladies were working on my hair! : )
The only thing I worry about is after the treatment is applied then they use a flat iron at a very high temperature to finish off the straightening. I don’t use one at home and I think they are not very good for the hair. But once a year I hope isn’t too too bad!
I was at the salon for a little more than three hours. It must be a popular treatment because there were two other ladies getting keratins done while I was there!
Here are some before pictures!
And the after with straight and shiny hair!
I can’t wash it until Tuesday morning and it can’t get wet until then either. That’s fine because it’s a long weekend!
That means when I went outside twice today I wore a hood and had a big umbrella since it’s raining here ALL weekend. Also have resorted to wearing a Target bag over my hair when I shower! : )
Why are all the sales online going on at almost the same time?!
The internet is BAD! BAD, BAD, BAD!
Too much sharing of beautiful sales and cute things I don’t need!
Nordstrom is having a sale. Resist!!!
Today I found out what Gilt was….it’s an online flash sale.
Well, today the Gilt flash sale was Kate Spade.
Scrolling through all the beautiful bags was like standing in a beautiful candy store and wanting one of everything.
Didn’t Kate Spade JUST have a sale last week?
Don’t they have a sale section on their OWN website?
Click over to the Kate Spade website and notice the prices there are LESS than the Gilt flash sale on some items. HMMM!
Clicked out of Gilt. Shook my head. I don’t get it!
I didn’t get offline before someone shared this cute lobster iPhone5 case. Ahhhhhh! I showed it to my brothers and they gave me the thumbs down though.
I still think it’s cute though!
Not that I need to buy any more bags!
These Kate Spade Vacation bags are awesome!
Wish I had the Paradise Island one when I went to Atlantis!!!
There needs to be an Aruba bag!!!
If these bags ever go on sale……
While reading tonight one of the characters used these quotes. I stopped for a minute and thought…..YUP!
‘People show you who they are not by what they say, but by what they do.’
‘When people show you who they are, believe them.’
YUP! I believe!
Dear Mother Nature,
Where is the sun?!
Sunday you gave us sun for about two hours and then clouds the rest of the day. It got too chilly to even sit outside! Booooooo!
Look at the weeks weather. Where is the sun?!
Long weekend coming up. Please let the sun shine for us!
Weather this week
I can’t remember the last time I read a Jackie Collins book, but I think it may have been back in 1984/1985.
Not sure why. Just finished reading Poor Little B*tch Girl and what an awesome read! New York, LA, Las Vegas. Loved all the characters! Have any of Jackie’s books been made into movies? They should be!! : )
Three twentysomething women, one hot rich guy, two mega movie stars, and a devastating murder: Poor Little Bitch Girl has it all.
Denver Jones is a hotshot twentysomething attorney working in Los Angeles. Carolyn Henderson is a personal assistant to a powerful and very married senator in Washington with whom she is having an affair. And Annabelle Maestro—daughter of two movie stars—has carved out a career for herself in New York as the madame of choice for discerning famous men. The three of them went to high school together in Beverly Hills.
Then there is Bobby Santangelo Stanislopoulos, the Kennedyesque son of Lucky Santangelo and deceased Greek shipping billionaire, Dimitri Stanislopoulos. Bobby owns Mood, the hottest club in New York. Back in the day he went to high school with Denver, Carolyn, and Annabelle. He connected with all three of them and Annabelle’s new cocaine-addicted boyfriend, Frankie, is his best friend.
When Annabelle’s movie star mother is found shot to death in the bedroom of her Beverly Hills mansion, the five of them find themselves thrown together . . . and secrets from the past have a way of coming back to haunt everyone. . . .
It must be spring!
Plymouth harbor was busy today!
My brother and I went to the Lobster Hut for some yummy seafood. We both had clam chowder and onion rings. I had fried scallops and Rob had clams. SO GOOD!
What comes next? Cupcake Charlie’s of course! Yummmmmmmm!
Cupcake Charlies YUM
So, do wind turbines freak anyone else out? In the town next to Plymouth there are a few of them in a row and they make me nervous for some reason!
While we were out and about my other brother was being a WINNER!! What’s funny is he was a WINNER just three weeks ago! He really does have all the luck!! Hopefully he bought some powerball tickets too!
I’d be spending it all! He’ll put it away and save it for a rainy day!
