Go Rogue

Go Rogue Cheeky Strut


Saturday I was lucky to be a part of a wild and glittery evening at Go Rogue, presented by Cheeky Strut Salon and R and Co Hair. Their talented team braided, crimped and twisted our hair into incredible sculptures for the live hair improv show!

The wardrobe was out of this world (seriously, galaxy leggings and unicorn jumpsuits!) I am still thinking of the dinosaur unicorn leggings and heels that likely wouldn’t make it past TSA. As for the products, I wanted to bottle all of the scents! I can see the Death Valley Dry Shampoo in my weekly hair wash future. I just love the packaging!

Special thank you to KL for inviting me and letting me borrow your killer heels! Also thank you Hillary for whipping my hair into such a fabulous creation!

Autumn Haircuts

The Dog Family
Hotel Venus Salon


This weekend we visited Aja, our hair magician comedienne extraordinaire, at Hotel Venus Salon after devouring cinnamon rolls and croissants from Wealthy Street Bakery. (Seriously, you must try a ham and asiago cheese croissant for a fast and savory morning indulgence). This darling Aveda salon is surprisingly calm on a late Saturday morning, and it’s close to some of my favorite local shops like Hunt & Gather and Black Lamb. We often sit outside for a late lunch or grab ice cream at Furniture City Creamery. What I love most about spending our morning here is the company and the charm of appointments written into an agenda rather than typed into a computer.

Aja took one look at my scraggly top-knot and we decided on a glaze to refresh my sombre color. I am so pleased with the warm, rosé color for autumn! The balayage mid-length to ends ensures my neglect won’t result in grown out roots. Heads up, fellas: this girl also does a mean GQ haircut!

Puppy Party

Doug the Pug
Too Talls


Puppy fever has been going around for awhile now and, lucky for us, our friends Spencer and Chelsea caught the bug. This winter they brought home Fitzgerald and then Olivia – two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels that have become fast friends with our Doug and Huey. On this day the pups enjoyed the new backyard for a full on puppy party.

There are some dog parks nearby, but I’ve mostly heard sour reviews. Fingers crossed for something clean and pup friendly on the West Side!



Olive
Sweet little Olive.
