I love Austin. Really, really love it. I have met the MOST wonderful people and am constantly amazed at how truly “interested” everyone is. I wanted to say “nice,” but that’s sort of cliche; people here are nice, but they are also genuinely interested and engaged. I love the sense of entrepreneurship, ownership and creativity here – it’s almost like a feeling that anyone can do anything….
So, I loved my new stylist so much that I went back!! LOL, when I got my haircut last, we decided to do “long” bangs, and I really loved how they looked the first couple of days, but after that, I didn’t quite know what to do with them. And I REALLY don’t like to spend a lot of time styling my hair. So, yesterday I went back to Carissa at Milk and Honey and got bangs (which I’ve had before, you know) and am so happy they’re back! I think the bangs give my face better definition, and create an actual hairstyle.
While I was out on 2nd street, I stopped in to Eliza Page because I had purchased a groupon (ADDICTED!!!) recently, which allowed me to get the AMAZING necklace I’m wearing by a local designer, and Austin Shines winner, Ax + Apple – Jamie Dorfman (more of her stuff on etsy), for nearly 50% off!!! I was so tempted by so many things in the store, but the moment I put this on my neck, I knew it was meant to be. I love the draping, and I think she makes everything with vintage chains and pieces. Anyway, I’m so proud to have been able to purchase one of these pieces, and look forward to continuing to support local design at Eliza Page (so sorry for those of you who don’t live in Austin…the store is amazing, but they do have a nice selection online as well).
