That's a wrap!

This past weekend was busy, busy.  I know your probably thinking, when isn't my world busy.  Well, you just might be right, ha!  Never the less, I got things done!  Starting with a rehearsal for my opening act for my upcoming fashion show in Vegas.  Wish I could share what it is but it's all hush, hush until the show.  Then, Sunday I wrapped up the S/S 2012 collection photo shoot.  I'm so glad I decided to split the shoot into two different days because they're were just to many pieces to shoot.  My biggest collection to date!  Here's a little behind the scenes,

So as much as I can't wait to show you the whole Look Book, I can only give you a sneak peek till after the fashion show.

Color me relaxed

So as you may know these past couple of months have been totally crazy and stressful for me.  So when my birthday came around earlier this month, I thought it's time to freshen up!

Last year for my birthday, I had a little party at this chic little restaurant and bar.  Although it was fun and all, I really just wanted some "me time" for my birthday this year.  So I decided to get my hair done at this fabulous local hair salon.

This was a big step for me because I have had a couple of bad experiences with hair salons in the past, therefore I had been doing my own hair for years. So when I walked into the The Color Lounge I was  in for an unexpected surprise,  a fabulous experience.

I know it can be a pretty penny, to go to a salon for hair services and stuff but sometimes, the experience alone is worth the money and time you spend there.  Not to mention, your hair leaves looking and feeling A-MA-ZING.  I totally enjoyed my experience at The Color Lounge.  From being introduced to the polite shop owner, Stella to a tour around the salon. AND of course the services!

How cool are these chairs? Right!

Girl talk, coffee and a magazine. The best!

One of my favorite things about this salon, is where they wash your hair!  This room was dim with stone like walls and an over-all relaxing feel to it.

So I'm sure your wondering what my new "do" looks like. Well, unfortunately I haven't had time to take a picture of it, so let's just say....I love it!
Big thank you to my darlin stylist, Jaimee!
