Happy August 1st!
A few weeks ago, well maybe it was a month, the last person in our group of friends turned...
wait for it...30!
So in true friend fashion we celebrated!
I was lucky enough to spend the day with her, before meeting up with everyone for dinner, drinks and dancing.
We started at Blowout,
$35 dollars and 70 minutes later I was washed, blownout and styled!!
Can I just say that having someone (anyone) else do my hair is simply divine.
I really could care less how it looks.
Thoughts. The bar was adorable and my stylist was a miracle worker.
I had volume and curls in no time and I left with a girl crush.
Bonus: You can book online!

Then we headed to Blush Beauty Bar,
Where I became a full-blown-lifelong member of having my makeup done professionally.
You see...prior to this outing, the only other time(s) I'd ever had my makeup done was for my wedding and other friends weddings.
Color me transformed.
Disclaimer: My selfie face is novice, and how uneven is my top lip, goodness??
Thoughts. Life Changing.
Plus if you spend $50 in product your make up application is...FREE!
But if you don't want to spend $50, getting your makeup done is only $38.
Makeup tip: When you're tired, hungover or just want your eyes to pop, use blue eyeliner! It makes the whites of your eyes stand out.

I ended up spending $75 at Blush, because I needed a candle, the eyelashes, lipgloss and blue liner.
As a woman, I know some budgets can't accomodate activities like this, but if you can,
I promise you it's worth it just to feel pampered for a day!
Have a great weekend!
