This past weekend was such a blast! My cousin is getting married in a few weeks, and we celebrated her bachelorette party by getting our hair done, eating cake, and dancing!
To start off, we went to The Blowout Bar – a salon that solely does hair styling! I personally would have never gone there – I mean, I can curl my hair at home, why pay someone $40 to do it?? However, I am SO glad we went.. I will definitely be going back – that’s how much I was in love with my hair!
There is absolutely no way I could have done my hair like this at home! I am not sure what product they put in my hair, but it is AMAZING. Apparently, your hair will look like this for a few days without washing. A girls dream come true haha
The back was just as amazing… If only my hair could look like this everyday!
There were 7 of us total – we all got curls, but all of our hair styles looked different from each other – in a good way! Everyone looked absolutely stunning!
After, we went back to get ready, open gifts, and eat cake… It was so great hanging out with these girls – we have all known each other since birth! And my cousin was beyond the moon excited and so happy – I cannot wait for her wedding day!
We all wore black, and my cousin wore a white dress… I couldn’t find a picture of all of us together before we headed out, so here is a picture of me with my makeup done… not something that happens often!
We all headed out to Hofbrauhaus for dinner – their food is so good! Not as good as the real hofbrauhaus in Munich, but pretty close 🙂 Below is a picture of me and the bride-to-be – cousins and friends since the day we were born (only a month apart!).
Afterwards, we went dancing for a little bit before heading home. I was asleep by 12:30!!! Not that I’m complaining – I got up at 6:30 to teach 2 back-to-back hot yoga classes in the morning. Saturday nights are normally a stay-in-and-go-to-sleep-at-9-pm type of night 🙂
I ended up laying around and watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch on Amazon Prime all day Sunday – and I’m already on episode 16! Since I was ridiculously unproductive on Sunday, I woke up early and went for a 30 minute run on the treadmill +did a quick circuit workout at the gym – check out the full-body circuit on youtube here!
After work, I went shopping to find a cute pair of tan booties… and no such luck. I ended up going online & buying a pair of Toms Leila Booties on Amazon – a little cheaper than buying from the Toms site or Nordstroms. Have I ever mentioned that I love amazon?? I order something from there every week!
After shopping, I set up my Go Pro and recorded a 30 minute YouTube video – a yoga flow specifically for weak, tight hips. It’s one of my tougher video’s, but it’s actually perfect for beginners to advanced! A lot of balancing and a little cardio will burn a lot of calories in this flow. I was sweating and ready for a nap afterwards!
I’ve been so busy with training for my half marathon & I haven’t had the time or energy to create a new YouTube video in a while. I am going to try to put a new one up every week… so if you have any suggestions or want me to post something for you, let me know! You can watch my 30 minute hip-strengthening yoga flow here – don’t forget to subscribe!
So what was everyone up to this weekend? Have you ever been to a blowout bar? What is your craziest bachelor/bachelorette party story?
