Gone Fishin'

Gone fishin'

Hey everyone!

   I just wanted to let you guys know I will be taking my first cruise with my family on starting Sunday. I hope that the ports have WIFI, but I'm not going to count on it. We will be driving from Austin to Lake Charles tomorrow. Visiting family until Sunday morning when we are driving to New Orleans and headed out. We will be stopping at Montego Bay, Jamaica as our first stop. The Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands as our second. Finally... Cozumel, Mexico as our last.

My Dad, Mom, Husband and 2 kids will be with me. We LOVE scuba diving, so it was extra special when my Dad taught my son how to swim with his new snorkle, fins, mask and wet suit.

I have an amazing 2nd admin. I can't ask for a better one then Erika with Living Frugal with Erika.
We will be posting great giveaways and deals while I'm gone. I hope everyone has an amazing next couple weekends... I'll see you on the 24th! :)

Review: Waterstone Salon

So I'm so excited to let you in on Austin's, in my opinion, best salon. By far! This is my first experience at Waterstone Salon and it will NOT be my last. 

First, I'd like to tell you that in Austin, parking is a wreck. Anywhere downtown to park is expensive and you worry about your vehicle. The salon has a FREE & SAFE parking. I wasn't worried even in the slightest bit. Complete win.

When you walk in you notice how absolutely beautiful and inviting it is. I was greeted as soon as I walked in the door by the lovely owner and asked if I'd like a drink. I've never gotten this kind of service with a smile at any salon, ever.

Also... what other salon offers BABY SITTING? Yes, I said it. You are able to get your hair done or get waxed without having to find a baby sitter.

My hair stylist was quick to greet me as well. He was a super nice guy and an even better hair stylist. We will get to that though. When I walked in, I knew I had frumpy mom hair. I haven't colored it in 7 years and my husband was scared about me coloring it. When we got together, I had my hair fried from the box dye. Ever since then, I haven't colored it. My hair has always been so frizzy and dry after that. Needless to say, I had NO IDEA what I wanted. I just pointed and said, "I need this frumpy mom hair gone!" He laughed, I think he gets it a lot. Ha!
after: ALL new me!
before: cut off frumpy bangs
My hair was a wreck? Can ya tell? I had a terrible haircut at some cheap place about 3 months ago. I cried for about 2 weeks cause it was so terrible. Even my new hair dresser had to stop and say, "Whoa! What was she doing?!"

Luckily, I found the answers to my hair dressing prayers. I can't explain what he did to it, but he cut it in a way that made it look LONGER and made it work. When I walked in the front door to my house I had more confidence and my hair looked amazing.

Thank you Waterstone Salon & Ziggy!

*Next Waterstone review will be their waxing, stay tuned*

If you could say one thing you love about their salon, what would it be? 

Make sure you follow their Pinterest! They have some great tips on how to do your make-up & hair! :)
