Yesterday I had a last minute choice to stay home and work, or drop Jeff off at his meeting in Truro and go to Halifax for the day and make up my work time later.
(I love my job!)
So I dropped Jeff off in Truro and headed for the mall in Halifax!
I had a couple things to pick up at the Apple store in the mall, then I stopped at the Head Shoppe to see if they an opening for a hair cut.
But it came with an option – do I want a level 1 stylist, or the more expensive, more experienced, level 4 stylist, since both had an opening.
Hmmmm… I hate spending money. On myself of all things.
How much more expensive I asked?
Only about $20-25 more.
I’m in! I’ll take the #4!
Great, the receptionist said. Oh and the esthetician has opening, would you like a brow wax?
Don’t mind if I do!
Then the pampering began. Can I hang up your jacket? Would you like a beverage? Coffee, tea, water, flavoured water?
I was led into the back room where the lights were dim and the music was relaxing, and let the esthetician rip most of eye brows off.
Then, as she walked me to the hair stylist, she whispered, you’re lucky, he’s the best one!
Then I was treated to a shampoo and a head massage, and then the
magician stylist made my hair look better than I ever though my hair could look. I even asked him once if these were trick lights or funny mirrors.
Not a great selfie, but you get the gist, and the red eyebrows:
For lunch, I headed down to the waterfront to say hi to Theodore:
I walked along the board walk a bit. What a BEAUTIFUL day! Started out around -20 and got up to around 0!
I was about to go into Murphy’s for lunch, but the sign out front said they didn’t open for the season until the next day, so I took myself out for lunch to Stayner’s Wharf Pub & Grill.
I had a delicious margarita quesadilla with seasoned fries. Really delicious! The place was packed with the Friday lunch rush.
By then it was time to head back up to Truro to pick up Jeff to head home.
He’s still laughing at how rashy and puffy my eyebrows are today (seriously, did she not pull my skin taunt when she ripped? I haven’t been this puffy after a wax before!) (that said, I don’t think these bushy brows have been touched since we got married! :o )
The best part, though, was this was the first hair cut and style I’ve had in a long time that didn’t make me race home to wash and restyle. If anyone ever asks if you if you want the #1 or the #4, go for #4
