hair salon

hairdressers on fire!!!!

so my friend grace had an idea. for all the hairdressers on montrose to come together and each month we have a class! one of us will teach the class a technique and we all get inspired and educated for free!
brandon taught the first class today at our studio while we ate breakfast tacos and soaked in everything. success!!! this is just what we needed. i am seriously so excited about these classes. i love learning from all the creative people around me. and its awesome that we all want to better eachother, bc there are a lot of competitive jealous (insecure) people in this business. NOT US! love it!
im curious do yall have something like this in your area? whatever your profession might be?
hoping yall are still on the fitness kick! working on your fitness post will be back next monday.
im going to bootcamp tonight. its evenings now.
happy monday to you guys!
i leave this song to you for your music monday:)
its robert schwartzman's solo project called solobob.
it's called the victim.
don't be a victim people. i hate when people play the victim card.
you may know him as the front man for rooney.

bits of DALLAS!

we are skipping the fitness post today bc brandi has a hair class and evening bootcamp today so i decided to post my weekend recap.
what I wore on my little outing

Map of Dallas from gas station...4.95
Camera found by brother in 
Flower cardi from forever 21...19.99 (i think)
Stripped mustard shirt from Target (sale)...3.99
Dress from

I was still waiting for the weather to get better form exploring, but I really don't see that happening. Looks like the English weather is here to stay. 

Reed and Justin took me around a section of downtown Dallas today. Lucky for me, Justin is a bottomless pit of knowledge when it comes to most things, but especially when it comes to Dallas. 

I like stairwells full of light and stained glass.

When is the last time you've seen a mosaic

I love finding hidden nooks between buildings.

I thought this was so odd. Saint-in-a-box!

Apparently the red Pegasus is the symbol of Dallas
(image above found on google)

I wish I had a mailbox like this! If you have an amazing mailbox, please post it and let us know.

I found someone's cup during an elevator ride.

A salon we passed while walking around...makes me happy.

The first time I saw a BMW I thought was cute.

Who else can not wait to see this movie???

log cabin

(sorry about quality, I snapped these while driving)

Does anyone recognize this building (insert man with gun) ?

Does anyone know the name of this area (Hint: grassy_____)?

If you still don't know, Misfits Bullet lyrics should clue you in just a wee bit.
"texas is the reason that the president's dead"

Other than the whole assassination bit, the day was a lot of fun. I wasn't warm until I got home, but I can always suck it up for a little exploration.
We really wanted to successfully sneak in a building and make it to the roof, but we were not so successful. Anyone else do that when surrounded by tall buildings?
I really love old stuff/buildings and I was completely unaware of how many active old buildings there are in Dallas. I assumed it was like Houston. WRONG.
Anyone live in Dallas and have any recommendations for me?

If you haven't explored the area you live in as a tourist, I highly recommend it. There is no way you no everything there is to know about your area. Take a camera and some comfortable shoes and take a look around. You may discover something new.

 I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Alan--If you are reading this, I love you and can't wait to see you!
