Weekend Update!

Hellloooo everyone! Monday again! This weekend went by super fast - as per usual. Friday - Charlotte was overcome by some nasty weather. Before all the northerners make fun of us - it WAS bad. Our roads are NOT built for ice, snow or anything of the sort. It RARELY snows in the south because even though it is technically snowing, the temperature is never freezing enough to make it actually white fluffy snow - instead - what we get is gross gray/black ice. In Friday's case - it was raining/hailing icicles for like 5 hours. Not a pretty picture. I convinced work to close a bit early and sent people safely home. I did NOTHING on Friday - I literally watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone TWICE. yep. 

not used to this.

Saturday - I had my hair apt to re-dye my hair & take the freaking red out of it! He added an ashy brown to it to town it down and I will probably add very thin and blended highlights in a couple of months - in the meantime, I like this look :) I also chopped 2 inches off my length! I want to make my hair as healthy and as long as possible!

I headed out to run some errands & hit up Ulta for their 20% off coupon... oh you know there is a haul coming! :) Tea time at Starbucks first - unsweetened iced black tea - heaven.

I cleaned my bathroom and makeup organizer - throwing out old products and cleaned my brushes as well - feels so good to do that! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and let's take on this week with positivity & energy!! :)
