Salon Review: Beauty Box Salon

I was invited in to come see Beauty Box Salon– and enjoy a blowout and style while I was in.

I was greeted by a friendly front of house team when I checked in for my service- and offered a drink while I waited. It didn’t take Erin, my stylist, to come introduce herself and take me on a quick tour of the salon before sitting at her chair. She was incredible personable and knew a lot about the salon’s history. Services offered include wigs, extensions, color, cut and style.  The salon was chic in style- whites and pinks resembling the “old pink house” the salon started in.

To be honest, I have no idea what products Erin used- but boy did they smell good! Erin did a great wash- extremely relaxing and using product appropriate for my hair needs. The blowout took a little while, but in fairness I have a TON of hair… After my hair was dry we took a wand through it to really drive home the beachy look.

I thoroughly enjoyed the wash and blow out. I left smelling fresh (I’m telling ya, the products were magical!) and with a great blow out to last me all weekend. Take a look for yourself…

 

PS- Cut and color are by Sarah King at Rossi + King!

Lady Gaga Does It Again: Til It Happens To You

Just when you think a message can’t be any more powerful…

Last night was chilling. Rewatching the videos and reading the stories is making it all more real. Kudos, Lady Gaga, for a stellar performance and for bringing an important message to the forefront. Thank you for helping survivors everywhere. xx

Watch full video here.

Watch Brie Larson huge survivors here.

Honestly, this is the only video you need to see all day. Warning, there’s some incredibly graphic portrayals or rape and abuse in the video. I dare you to not A) break down in tears and B) think a lot about life and how much awful messed up shit that happens in this world.

Fact: 1 in 5 college women will be sexually assaulted this year unless something changes.

Fact: You can make a difference.

Fact: You never know what someone is going through, or has gone through..

#GRAMMYS THO

Taylor, your hair needs to go back to 1989. Now.  Sorry not sorry.The jumpsuit doesn’t do it for me. I just can’t. Let’s move on.

HUNNAAAAY PLEASE. Can I nominate Carrie and Sam for couple of the year? PS- shameless plugs- Carrie is on tour & Sam is playing #OffTheRails. But seriously. Watch them live. Watch that performance and tell me you don’t feel feels.

Also, can Sam look at me the way he looks at Carrie? Nah? Oh.

Hey Ariana, let’s leave the “earning it” to The Weeknd.. but HEY WEEKND, REMEMBER ME? I WAS AT ACL. Swoon.

Holy shit. That voice control. Weeknd is doing big things.

Ellie + Andra can duet any day. I wasn’t diggin’ it at first, but I’m glad I stuck it out.

Cam’s dress needs to be thrown into a burning house….

Raise your hand if you’re shocked that Chris Stapleton is taking home another award this season… anyone? In fairness, he is great. Lucky enough to see him last year during ACM week.

This group is really testing my “don’t change the channel” mentality. Luke looks smoking but sounds dreadful. Meghan can leave. That peaked at Demi. Downhill from there.

Here’s the deal. I love this song as much as anyone.  But I also saw it live at ACMs a year ago. And it’s been on every awards show. When are we done girl crushin’?

*time to go make dinner* wait, was that a blind joke? followed by a disability plug? respect.

ED SHEERAN FOR THE FREAKING WIN I LOVE YOU, YOU RED HEADED GENIUS. KEEP DOING YOU AND PEOPLE WILL LOVE YOU.

Sounds good. Looks good. Still not giving me all the feels that I want. Change of pace soon?

Nope. No pace change. But gah do they sound good stripped down like this. James Bay can sing to me any time he would like.

So much hype. Will Hamilton live up to it?

WE GON BE ALL RIGHT *turns volume up*

*stuff happened… it didn’t entice me to watch*

Alabama Shakes is so deserving of this. When they played at Verizon, I died. In the best way possible.

Can we make the sound work for Adele? Possible or nah?

JUSTIN BIEBER MY MAMA LIKES YOU I SWEAR AND YOUR MAMA WILL LIKE ME.

He could sing the alphabet and I would listen, tbh. I’m a belieber.

Wait, did Meghan Trainor really win? She took selfies at least half of the time she was on stage when  I saw her. There’s so much talent in that category… why….

YES GAGA YES BOWIE YES GAGA

That was worth the wait. Thank you, gentlemen + Bonnie. Well done. Much feels. Such jazz.

AHHHHH BRITTANY HOWARD TIME

Wait, can we talk about how creepy Alice Cooper is? I want so badly to like this… but I’m struggling…WAIT, ACE OF SPADES, I CAN DIG IT NOW

Wait, he’s only 12? Oh. I’m 23. What am I doing with my life?

SUPPORT MUSIC; BUY CONCERT TIX!

We lost so many talented people in the music community this year. So heartbreaking.

*oh my gosh I’m so shocked I won*

LOLOLOLOL @ sub-talking Ye, made me laugh… but back to girl power, why are no girls on stage with Taylor? She only has famous friends but not famous co-workers?

Dang it. I’m sorry. The world is gonna hate me. I don’t think Beyonce looks good. Those earrings are too much.

I don’t wanna watch Pit… but I like the others.. hashtag TORN… guess I’ll stay up to watch it

*still watching Kanye’s twitter account for a rebuttal*

GUYS THIS WAS ON FB AND I HAD TO INCLUDE IT- Robin Thicke, Pit Bull, and Travis Barker on stage at the same time giving Nickelback a run for their money.

Thanks for hanging, y’all! Stay tuned for some afterthoughts on fashion & performance rankings.. should be a fun few days! xx
