For the past 2 years I have made the resolution to BE PRESENT in my life (aka in DC)…this year, it is finally happening. Third time’s a charm right? This time around it’s different. I feel different. I want it…before I was just saying I wanted it because I knew I needed it. This resolution will NOT fall in the “unfulfilled” category.
Quick little background for those that don’t know- I don’t think I was truly ready to leave Charleston when I packed my bags 2 1/2 years ago and moved to the Nation’s Capital. I may have physically left, but emotionally I was stuck. I was living vicariously through my friend’s Facebook updates, going back as OFTEN as possible, and you couldn’t get through a conversation with me without my saying something along the lines of, “Well in Charleston we….”
It was a major source of my unhappiness…and in 2013 ain’t NOBODY got time for that! (yes I’m making the youtube Bronchitis reference!)
One of the biggest steps I have taken to establish my residence in Washington is…wait for it (for those that know me you will know what a big deal this is)…getting my hair extensions done here. My extensions were a legitimate reason (in my head) to make the trip to Charleston every 3 months…I mean I HAD to get my hair done right? Finding a great hairstylist is like finding a great boyfriend, you can’t just pick one out of a phone book and expect it to work…and most of all, I love Holly at Paloosh Salon!
*SERIOUSLY if you live in Charleston…you should go to Paloosh (843) 766-0037. They have the best stylists!
But it was time…and yesterday I had a consultation with Megan at The W Salon in Burke. My old extensions are out (so I am natural…don’t expect to see me out in public!!!!) and the new ones are going in on Sunday!
To New Hair and Being Present!
