Stylists, Smoothies and Starbucks, Oh My!

So True, yet feels like a disclaimer…

Yay, I survived the Hairdresser!  It actually went really well… thankfully!  After the last appointment with her replacement, and subsequent appointment to try and fix the mess with another one at the same salon, she still saw the awful cut.  At least I know it wasn’t in my head!  

So I am sporting some non-spotted highlights, and a reddish base again, whoo hoo!  …and significantly less split ends.

Lunch yesterday was a smoothie…

PB Cup w/Spinach and a Peach on the road :)

Followed by a Starbucks supper…

Bistro Box: Chicken, veggies, pita and Hummus

I may or may not have dipped a couple of Hubby’s fries into the hummus ;)

…and dessert

Mocha Coconut Light Frapp, with Coconut topping :)

Please excuse the oh, so wonderful Blackberry photos… and the lack of the hair photo… forgot yesterday, and that will have to wait till I put on my face, and restyle my hair again… curly hair straightened does not sleep well.
