the blowout

by kacia on 19 Feb ’13 · 21 comments


 For my birthday, I treated myself to a blowout.  To clarify once again: my hair, not a diaper.

It sounds so silly and yes, it’s more of a date night or fun event occurance–not something I can justify too regularly.  But as cheesy as it sounds, I felt so special and well, fancy.
There is just something about getting your hair all prettied and fancified, while sitting in a chair and chatting with your stylist–can I get an amen?

I really didn’t know what a blowout appointment would entail–I truly had no idea what these blowout appointments were consisting of.  But heading home post scalp massage, peppermint shampoo,  hair drying, curling and styling?
To me? For our birthday date night? It was a wonderful gift.

A few friends encouraged me to take the plunge–I am so happy they did.

I had my sweet friend take a few before and after shot.


I decided on Izzazu for my appointment, and absolutely loved my random stylist, Meg.
Related?  I would like her to be my friend.  And if you’re in the Pittsburgh area, you should go become her friend too.  Not that she needs any, she’s just that awesome.

 Have you ever had a blowout?  What is your favorite way to spoil yourself? And in my book, a solo trip to Target or the grocery store counts as a getaway!

Happy Monday, loves!

Trips to the store by yourself count in my book as well!!! You look adorable! Happy you got to treat yourself!


kacia February 19, 2013 at 3:24 pm

thanks, Jessica!! I still don’t think Andy gets how a trip alone to do the most BORING errand is a little retreat! Don’t get me wrong: i miss them both like crazy and want to get home AsAP – but it’s SO good for me!

your hair looks amazing, Kacia! I think half of getting a good haircut/style is the experience of being in a nice, peaceful salon!



kacia February 19, 2013 at 3:23 pm

AGREED!!! the more spa like- the better!

And thank you – she did a FABULOUS job!

AMEN! To the hair appointment pampering and to solo trips to target/grocery shopping!! I’m not a mom yet but I’m a stay-at-home big sister who home schools her middle school and high school aged siblings.
