on the catwalk.... on the catwalk

Saturday's make-over was a success! 

Unless otherwise indicated, the photos were taken by photographer and Yelper Nate E.

Do the before pictures HAVE to look bad? Is that a requirement? Ugh...

Red highlights and a glaze (that came later). 
Post haircut fluff. 
Trish caught me eyeing Jeffrey as Jordan mixed my make-up in the background. 
Team Deepa and the final product. 
My wonderful stylist. She really did a great job and was so so sweet.

My equally wonderful colorist. I am addicted to this glaze thing - she worked wonders. 
I shook my little tush.

So I can't believe it! I WON something. Not just any something, an awesome something.

A few weeks back, YelpBoston announced that they were having the next Elite event at newly opened Mizu Salon and that three Yelpers were going to get make-overs during the event. All you had to do was send in a creatively written reason why you should get the make-over and they will choose the winners. So, not thinking I would actually get it, I entered and forgot about it.

Yesterday, I found out that I am one of the three! The timing is perfect. I was putting off getting my hair cut for months and then finally set up an appointment for Friday afternoon (which I canceled, natch). This also means that I may finally branch out from that long in the front/short in the back look I have been sporting (and loving) for the last two years.

I also have a bachelorette party that night, which is good and bad. Bad in the sense that I will be missing the pre-party part of the party. (On the other hand, WATCHING people get drunk depresses me, but being around drunk people is not as depressing. So in the end, it is probably better that I am meeting up with everyone after they are properly pissed.) Good in the sense that a new haircut and made-up face is just the confidence-booster I need. It will be nice to walk into a Fanuiel Hall bar and not simply feel older and fatter than the 21-year-old college students who frequent those establishments. It's also a nice way to see people you haven't seen in a few years:)

I'll be sure to post "before" and "after" pictures. Stay tuned!

those cheeks!

Not mine - picture OR baby, but I had to share. After dinner with my friend L and N, we went to see L's brand new person that she and her husband made from scratch. N snapped this photo as he sat on my lap.

Adorable, no?

springtime wonderland!

Last Tuesday, after the last big snow storm, I wanted to take some pictures of the snow before it got all gray and lumpy. Even though it was freezing that day (and I HAD to go into Banana to warm up... what?) there was something serene and beautiful about the park as the sun set. I am looking forward to summer more than anyone, but I will miss those crisp winter days until they come back in November. 

whatever the amount!
