So I did it guys! I cut my hair, and now feel like a FREE person! I was super nervous to get my hair cut. I felt like my my long hair that I straightened or curled was my identity. I was also nervous about cutting my hair because my husband has never seen me with short hair! I know, such a weird thing to be afraid of but, it really got me nervous.
I went for it, even with my fears… As many of you know, I’ve been having horrible issues with my hair! I would do treatment after treatment and it never failed, my hair would become super knotty, building a little birds nest in the back… It came to the point where I just felt like my hair needed a break. I was feeling sorry for it, and just wanted to cut the time of brushing out the knots!
The process of the cut was just so much fun! I have anxiety issues, and this day was no different. The night before I regretted making my hair appointment and started cussing at myself for doing so. But, once I woke up, I knew what had to be done…
I walked into the salon and was greeted by my stylist. He made me feel relaxed and understood what I wanted to do. He lightened up my mood, and I was not worried at all. The funniest part that he did for me was put my chopped hair into a huge envelope and told me to mail it to an ex! He had seen a friend of his do this and one day someone came over her house for dinner. They saw a full envelope and thought it was packed full of cash! They said to her, “ Hey, you’re rich! You have an envelope full of money!” And she said: “ Yeah, go check it out!” That friend opened it, and saw all that crazy hair!
My 31st birthday was amazing! The Mister set up a full day at the spa. It was at the Plaza Hotel! It was amazing… wait, I said that already! Ok, Ok. So my day was spent at the spa. I got there at 12pm and left at 5:30pm. My treatments included: facial, massage, soak, scrub, manicure.
With my mother’s passing and just feeling overwhelmed, my husband felt it would be great for me to go relax and to not think. I feel so blessed to have a wonderful, strong husband! I love him so much!! I felt so refreshed after leaving the spa. The staff was so knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend it to anyone visiting NYC.
Another amazing gift from my sister! YOGA SOCKS! I also got Yoga gloves as well, but not pictured! I’ve been getting into yoga, and these socks are great when you need that extra grip. I cannot tell you enough how great these socks are! Go and get a pair!
The Mister and I have been having an awesome time with our friends MR+MRS LEE-LEE! Not only was it filled with lots of laughs, but as the pictures can prove, lots of alcohol! The first picture on the left is a HUGE pot of fresh seafood in spicy Korean broth! OMG! We were starving that day, and thought we could take this thing down. Well, let me tell you! This basically kicked our ass, and we couldn’t finish it.
The picture next to it was from Burger &Barrel, and it was the award winning Bloody Mary with bits of BACON and jalapeno! This is a damn meal in itself. I’m not a huge fan of crushed up food in my drink, but I just needed to try it. It was interesting, but I wouldn’t get it again.
The two last pictures, do I need to explain?! Good old beer!~ I need to take a break from it though. Drinking all weekend is going to get the best of me! Haven't had the time to workout, and its mostly due to myself not waking up early in the morning!~
Stay focused on moving forward and stop over thinking. I was brought up in a sheltered life. Whenever I had a problem I would run and ask my mother for an answer. She always gave me advice and answered my problems. Losing her, I’ve been feeling lost. Like a sheep who has lost his shepherd… I sometimes hide from the world by just brushing it aside and thinking that life will solve my problems. It won’t.
Don’t regret and go for it! That is, if you really want it…
I put this picture on my phone to keep me motivated and to stay focused.
