Get Your Pretty On : RA_Beauty Bar

Going to salon always makes me super happy! Whether it's wearing a robe, getting your hair washed and played with, talking to your stylist as if they are a pseudo-therapist, and of course, feeling and fresh pretty at the end. 

This week I had the opportunity to check out RA_Bar Beauty when they hosted their Holiday beauty event. RA_Beauty just celebrated it's 1 year anniversary and was opened by a group of super sweet girlfriends, which is totally inspiring. Tucked away in the heart of West Hollywood, it's hidden entrance off the main drag is perfect for A-List celebrities (or anyone who wants the celeb treatment) to discretly enter through the private garden into the Salon.

With a variety of services offered RA_Bar beauty is the perfect place to get your pretty on! Plus the  the owners and staff are the sweetest; just what you want for a day of getting beautified! I immediately felt welcomed when I was greeted with hugs by the staff. They set me up for a Blow Out and eyebrow touch up.

I loved the Kevin Murphy products the salon uses, and was grateful to be able to take some home to hold me over till my next blow out. And the Eye Brow Touch up and Tint service was awesome! I have dark eyebrows already but taking them a shade darker really made my eyes pop! I'm obsessed.

I had such a wonderful day at RA_Bar Beauty and I feel ready to take on the Holiday season. Thank you so much RA_Beauty and EMC Bowery (SHOUT OUT TO SHAE SAVIN!) for having me. I am so grateful for the awesome day of beauty and generosity! And i can't wait to pay it forward this holiday season and go out and spread joy and happiness.

mahalo nui loa

family is a major key in my life. i wouldn't be where i am without them. they made me into the human i am today. i am i forever grateful for the amazing family i have and the connection we share.
in march 2016 our family expanded. my sister Andrea and her husband Dustin gave birth to a BEAUTiFUL baby girl, Aurora.

it's been an amazing 8 months watching Aurora grow & learn. And even cooler to see my sister and brother in law GROW (morph) into parents. and my parents are more then happy to become grandparents. and i couldn't be prouder to be Aurora's only blood related aunt. it's been such a cool experience!! I am so grateful for it all, its changed my world & perspective.

but you know ... i'm not gonna lie it sure makes me wanna get on that reproduction game. but i being an aunt is the next best thing because being around a young developing human is SO cool! You can see the world through brand new eyes when a baby is experiencing the same world you exist in.

For thanksgiving my mom, sister, brother in law & niece all went to Hawaii to celebrate all that we are thankful for and it was such radical trip!! Aurora loved the water and the sand. She a beach baby for sure. Plus her happy smile and laughter brings so much joy to the world. She inspires me to be happy all the time!! I am SO grateful to have spent the week in hawaii with Aurora.

I am also beyond grateful for my family and i can't wait for the future and see my family expand even more! and i can't wait to watch Aurora grow into the human she becomes! The future looks pretty bright !! & looking ahead to where you wanna be and who you want to grow into is always KEY. like major.
