Birthday Weekend!

Wow, I haven't been in NY over a weekend for a while, and I'm leaving again later this weekend for work...sorry, will have to hold on my China update, but in a few words, it was eye-opening, intriguing, fattening and cheap, all at the same time.  Pics should say it all.

Anyways, it is my birthday weekend, and I'm getting a haircut from Justin @ Bloom Beauty Lounge today! Donating my hair to Wigs for Kids too, which is just what I was hoping to do.  Finally, it has been so long, literally: ).  It's not free (I know, gasp!), more like half off, but I figured I was allowed to splurge - even for me, hehe.  It's still a good deal, ok!

Again, skimpy weekender for you b/c of my travels (the more I post about events I can't go to b/c I'm away, the more sad it makes me...but I do it for you!!: ).  Have a good one, for me!
