Yesterday was a holiday. Where can you guys find me on a holiday? In the office. I am such a workaholic. One reason why I love working on a holiday is that I can work better alone. I love some quiet time where I can finish up everything without any interruptions.
Yesterday, was not the typical holiday scene for me. I was surprisingly not in the office. For the first time in a long time I got to sleep in. I woke up at 8am and had a good breakfast with my mom. Yes people, 8am for me is already considered sleeping in. Hahahaha. I was up and about and out of the house by 10am. I went over to my friend's house and we went to the mall to pick up my other friend.
It was a pretty simple get together with the girls. But despite the simplicity of this get together I was just so happy. So happy to not have to stress and bury myself with work. And just so happy to hang out with good friends. For the first time in a long time I actually felt like my age again, doing girly things, go shopping, getting my hair and nails done.
I went to a party about a month or two ago and I was given three free gift certificates for a hair spa. I went ahead and brought the gift certificates with me for me and the girls. I had no idea that the gift certificates expired October 28 of this year. The gift certificates were glued to this hard paper and the expiry date was written on the glued portion, so we had no way of knowing that the gift certificates expired unless we pulled the gift certificates away from the paper. The manager at the salon was kind enough to honor these expired gift certificates. My gift certificate also came with a free hair cut. I asked the hair stylist not to cut my hair since I have been wanting long hair for the longest time. Instead, I had the hair stylist trim my bangs. I wanted side bangs.
This is the picture I showed the hairstylist. I wanted Nicole Richie's bangs. I've been in love with her bangs for so long.
I was in near tears when I saw what the hairstylist did to my bangs. I look like an anime. I guess that is a lesson learned for me. Never use an expired gift certificate.
This hat was not working for me either.
Anything chocolate is a definite cheer me up treat.
Chocolate scones with nutella, whipped cream and strawberry jam.
Beef pizza infused with dark chocolate. And the cheese is mixed with grated white chocolate. The pizza tasted pretty interesting. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
Thank goodness for hair clips and my mood lifters: Apple and Kelly
What do you guys do when you're having a bad hair day? What should I do with my bangs while they are still awkwardly, stiffly short?
