I got a new haircut this past Saturday. I went to Salon 5, and this was the first time I have been to a proper salon in a looong time. I don't have a regular "stylist" or someone to go to for haircuts. My hair is very thin and fine and I figure no cut will ever change that. So I go to places like Supercuts for trims here and there. I've never been the type to go to their hairstylist every 6-8 weeks. Once in a while do I go to a salon if I want a change. I've been living in sweats and t-shits since becoming a mom, so I thought I'd try to make myself look fresh. Well, my new cut isn't so drastic, but I did get it shaped with chunky layers and some side-swept bangs. I like it! And I love the chica who gave me the haircut, so I'll be going to her from now on. I finally have a proper hairstylist! Next items on my list are a nice pedicure (it's open-toe season my friends!) and a facial for my poor clogged pores! I may even get some punky highlights later on!
Here's the cut though you can't really see the layers in this pic (pardon my goofy smile):
Last Friday, I went to see Plastiq Passion, my former band! Yes, they have tossed me to the curb since I took a maternity leave from the band! Boo-hoo! It's all good though. They said I can come back anytime and we'd just work out the new line-up. It was fun to watch them. My replacement, Deniz, was pretty good (though I'm still better! ;) and it was great to get out and bob your head to the music. They also had a new song which I dig. I'm going to start practicing again with them and will most likely do guest vocals at their next show in Hoboken, NJ on May 10th at the Whiskey Bar. Do come check us out! The best part of the evening was... I had my first alcoholic drink since June 2005! Nothing major, just a Stoli Orange and cranberry --but 2 of them already put me in a nice buzz! Talk about lightweight! I guess I'll have to work on my tolerance all over again!
