This post brought to you by Summer of Groupon. All opinions are 100% mine.
It’s been a long time since I last had highlights. I mean a looong time. I thought it had been around six months, and my dark roots were depressing me in the midst of a summer of sunshine and fun. When I spoke to my hairdresser recently and groaned about not having my color touched up in half a year, she replied “Nope, you’ve come in for hair cuts, but you haven’t had your highlights done in two years”…
Two years?? Talk about self neglect. Where did the time go? How did I let myself go for two years??
So when I found some great deals in Groupon‘s Summer Shop for Beach Bodies and beauty deals, I knew it was time for a little me focus. Thus the big beauty makeover (finally) began.
I won’t give you all the nitty gritty details (who wants to hear the details about a Brazilian wax??) but suffice to say, I’m beach ready from head to toe, thanks to Lauren Lavelle Salon, AHS Laser Salon (moms know what pregnancy can do- spider veins, begone! poof!), and more. When I say I had a beach body makeover, I really went to town taking care of my neglected appearance. I enjoyed a massage somewhere along the way for some mood lifting too, but seriously, is anything more mood elevating than a good hair day?
Brassy dark hair and split ends were replaced by gorgeous sunny highlights, and dry, pale skin has been replaced by hairless, smooth skin, and now when I hit the pools in a few weeks on a getaway with my family, I will feel pretty darned awesome.
