When Beauty Brands decided to shut down the Village Pointe salon due to bankruptcy and leave my favorite Rock Star Stylist without a job, I crazily worried myself about where and how I'd be obtaining service for my styling needs. But alas... Rock Star Stylist landed a position at a new salon located even closer to my home and even fancier than the previous salon site! So here I am with freshened up highlights and a sharp blunt haircut feeling amazing as ever and ready to take on the world once again.
... the first slide about the oldest turning 22 years old, anyway. Eating at Olive Garden to celebrate the occasion and licking our plates clean? COMPLETELY POSSIBLE.
Today I went Tower Exploring and discovered this gem called THE 16TH FLOOR. And what do you know - there I found this amazing view along with vending machines stocked with all kinds of sweet/salty snacks, multiple microwaves, and sitting areas with booths, barstools, bars, and lounging chairs that were comfy as heck. So as I left that floor wondering, why hasn't anyone informed me of this oasis in all of my 4 months of employment? I finally realized...
Yup, perfect daily escape. *shhh*
Being an Italian Catholic, St. Patrick's Day doesn't exactly bring out any Irish-ness in me or the family. It does, however, make me feel like breaking out an afternoon bottle of Sauvignon Blanc with a touch of green food coloring as a festive touch. But to avoid that late-day crash - especially after getting in that power workout this morning, I opted for this fancy St. Paddy's Day dual-selfie, complete with holiday appropriate green University of Hawaii and Under Armour shirts.
Green beverages + crash can wait 'til later.
This is my Big City view as I walk to and from my covered parking garage every day, and seeing it all gives me that uptown-chic kind of vibe as I go. I mean, how can you ever get enough of this awesome sight? Must say a slight jolt of electricity hits me every time I take in this view while walking around downtown Omaha, and then I shake my head in disbelieve at how crazily scary it all felt just 4 short months ago. Who knew living the career dream could rise up out of nothing so unexpectedly? Feeling blessed and grateful that it did, just in time to save me from living in hermit mode for the rest of my adult years.
*sniffs back tears of happiness*
