Two weekends ago, I finally was able to do something that I have been wanting to do for a very long time… Get the keratin hair treatment! My hair is crazy after I shower; it’s fine for an hour or two if I leave it as is but then get super puffy, frizzy and uncontrollable! I have to straighten it on a daily basis and I have damaged my hair from it so much.
I found a Groupon for the keratin for only $89 here in LA and I looked up the yelp reviews on the salon and made an appointment.
I ended up getting my hair colored, cut and the treatment done all within less than 3 hours! I was able to finally wash my hair last night and oh my goodness… I’m in love! My hair is straight(90% still has a little bit of wavy at the back hair but I’m totally OK with it) soft and so not frizzy anymore! I love that I didn’t have to use the flat iron or a blow dryer to straighten my hair! I wish I had taken a before and after picture!
If you are debating whether or not to get it done, I highly recommend doing it… It’s like changing!!!
I don’t think I have ever mentioned on here that my husband and I are trying to get into photography; so on weekends now, we tend to go somewhere and work on our skills at taking pictures and just getting more familiar with our cameras. For now we are just doing photos of nature/places/etc; we will eventually love to start taking photos of people but for now this is what we are doing. This past weekend we decided to go to a place that we love… Hearst Castle! We first went there on our 3rd year anniversary and fell in love, and decided to go back and do our engagement photos there. It is about a 3.5 hour drive from where we live so we only went for the day. We have already done most of the tours so we knew we just wanted to get up there to take pictures so we bought a tour which you have to buy in order to enter the castle, and as soon as we were in, we ditched our group haha. I want to show you a few pictures that we took; of course I will post more on our Instagram account if you would like to follow us on there for future pictures.
Have you ever been to Hearst Castle? What was your experience like?
The most important person in my life is my husband! I honestly love and adore him and I wouldn’t know what to do with out him!
My husband and I have been married for 2.5 years, but have been together for almost 6 years now! He’s my best friend, my partner, my everything! He is the one person who knows me better than anyone else in this world, he is the one person who I can tell everything and anything too and who I can be myself fully with! I know I drive him nuts sometimes and vise versa but that’s just part of life. No relationship/marriage is perfect… If it is then there is something majorly wrong!!
In 2013, my husband and I went to Hearst Castle for our 2 year anniversary. At this time we actually were not married, we were just engaged. I fell in love with the castle, so much so that we actually went back to take our engagement photos there before our wedding; I will actually post that video up another day!
If you have never been to Hearst Castle, I highly recommend you go. But if you do here are a few tips:
Try to avoid going in the summer time, our first trip was during the summer and let me tell you, it was so hot! There are no AC’s obviously, they just have portable fans throughout the castle which doesn’t help as much since everyone tries to stand in front of it.
Wear comfortable shoes and clothes! There are a lot of stairs like A TON!!!
Don’t schedule as much tours as you can! Hubby and I scheduled all 4 tours for the day! We barely made it to tour 4. They usually don’t refund you back when its so last minute, but they felt so sorry for us for booking all of them in one day that they ended up refunding us for the last tour since we were so exhausted!
Here is the video, I hope you enjoy!
