Chicago - Gen Art Shop Chicago Event

So I love food, shopping, and pampering myself - be it spa, make-up or getting my hair done. What's better than that? All three in the same room!! Everytime I go to Chicago I never plan anything. I always stay at my friend Tracy's and we figure stuff out when I get there. With so much to do in Chicago, it's never hard to find something!

Well after much web searching, we decided to see if we could get into the Shop Chicago Gen Art event. It was a piece of cake, we show up after her work seminar and the doors opened and in we went! For Free! We got to look at all sorts of cute stuff, try on clothes and shoes from local designers and boutiques.

We signed up to have our make-up done and picture taken in the new Acura RDX - which I think is so hot! I love Acura's, they're great cars in terms of looks, longevity, and function. It might be time to look into getting something new.. maybe.. if I can figure out a budget for it. :D It reminds me of a cross between the Acura MDX and the TL, less power than the MDX, more room than the TL.

After the make-up session and photo shoot, we went to have our hair styled. Paul was my stylist, he asked what I wanted to do and I said, 'not sure, I've been wearing this head band to keep my ridiculous bangs out of the way as they grow out.' He takes a look, combs at it, and says to me, 'we haven't been cutting hair today, but can I style your bangs, they're very isolated right now and should be part of your hair, not sitting on it's own.' Free band styling? Sure, why not! Snip, snip, snip, snip and then styling, curling, styling and WOW! My hair looked so good! I was very pleased.. all for the price of FREE.. even better! If I end up moving to Chicago, I'm totally going to him to have my hair cut all the time!

Apparently I don't take very good care of my hair (in terms of getting it cut and keeping it maintained). He asked me who cuts my hair right now and I told him I was from California. He asked his co-worker if she knew where an ex-coworker of theirs worked. I think he was going to refer me to her for the sake of my hair. I know.. I know.. I should get it cut more often, but I only go about every 6 months.

All in all, it was a great day! Make up and hair all done, it was time for dinner!
