a visit to beauty school

I went to visit my friend in cosmetology school today and asked if I could look like this:
Realizing that I will never be Audrina Patridge...but thinking that my hair is similar in color and length that I may aspire to have hair like hers. 

For the bargain price of $5.00; I received a shampoo (and some magic conditioner to help my ends) a haircut and a blow dry. 

I remember when I was learning esthetics how hard it was working on each other day after day.  One can only receive so many facials, and get their eye brows waxed so many times in a week!  I had one friend who visited me regularly, and a couple that stopped by...but it's hard to get people in when you're still learning.  I can imagine it's even harder for cosmo students who are learning to cut hair.  It's worth it though to give your local cosmetology school a try, if nothing else for a shampoo and blow dry.  An inexpensive day of beauty and you're helping someone to learn their craft? Seems like a win win.

Have you ever visited a local school for a beauty treatment?  How was your experience?

I have a blog? Surely you jest!!

It's not that I forgot that I have a blog...I know it's here sitting on the web, just waiting to be read by people all over the world (or hoping that I will come in an update any one of  the drafts that are twiddling their thumbs waiting to be posted).  You know how it is when life and whatnot get in the way...  It's not that my life is so terribly interesting, or even that my sched is packed full of mundane activities...I actually have no real excuses.  So instead here are my random reasons of why I have not posted anything in a while:

1. I discovered Breaking Bad.  I felt the need to watch every episode in order before they began airing the final season on AMC.  Breaking Bad has taken over parts of my life and has even become a screensaver at work (thank you Aaron Paul).

 2. July is a very busy month at work.  Well the second half is super duper busy.

3. I kept forgetting my ULTA coupons, which meant that I avoided going there in general.  Therefore, I had no recent beauty purchases to review.  I would however very much like to try out:

I think I like the brush too...but do I need another brush?  I also can't tell how it is to clean.  

4.  I have spent a lot of time thinking about how I should be working how I should go to the gym, or at the very least go for a walk...but then again it's been so hot (and HUMID) oi.  Today on my way home at 5 pm it was still 99 degrees!

5. I've had some priorities to attend to (aka: visiting the beach and going to the OC Fair's Damsels of Destruction Demolition Derby) is summer.

Seeing as the kiddos are back in school (in general, I myself do not own any) and also that Labor Day is just around the corner, I suppose that my summer vacation is almost over.  I will be posting again soon, so don't fret my dozen or so loyal readers! 

Hope that your summer's have been lovely!
