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!
