The best feeling

is when your hair stylist begins to rinse the soap and dye out of your hair during an appointment. Between the warm water, the lulling background music and the smell of lilac shampoo, it’s all just too good to be true. And then you remember the best part has yet to come. The part that all men should consider learning how to do…

The head massage.

This alone is worth the cost of the entire appointment.

I only have one silly little problem with the whole experience though, do you lie back, close your eyes and just get into it or is that a little too, desperate? These are the things I think about – my poor brain. Part of me wants to do that immediately and then part of me is embarassed by how much I enjoy it and I end up pretending to be all nonchalant about it, as if I couldn’t be bothered one way or another (pssh, if they only knew).

To indulge in the head massage or not, what do you do? Oh and in case you’re wondering or need a new hair salon, I go to KA Ricco in the harbor. It’s a solid A+ every time 🙂

Happy hump day everyone! Here’s to having a great night 😉

PS. Geo, in case you’re reading this, my “great night” will consist of Nashville and going to bed. Sorry if I got your hopes up… love you! 😀


Happy Birthday to Me

It’s official, I am 30 years old. Yikes. With that comes a 30 year old face, one that seems to be much more willing to welcome little lines and age marks that are doing a wonderful job of freaking me out. I’ve never had beautifully smooth or blemish free skin but over the last couple years I’ve definitely noticed an increase in wrinkles, just little ones but still they’re there staring at me in the mirror.

So when I saw that Joanna Goddard (one of my favorite bloggers) posted about her favorite anti-aging cream products last week I decided it was fate intervening, telling me it was time to hop on the bandwagon and start investing in my skin (aka – I’m a huge sucker and saw my bday as an opportunity to splurge on myself).

Olay, please don’t disappoint, this face needs a little love!

In other news, this weekend I made this amazing soup for the second time around. Sharing it because it’s delicious AND easy to make – not always an easy combination to find. Go make it, I promise you won’t be disappointed. Ina knows whats up!
