Salon Day and Giveaway

logoLast month some of the Tampa Bay Blogger ladies and I (and my DD1, Alice) enjoyed a Girls Night Out at Serendipity Salon and MediSpa in Tampa. In addition to some no-cost treatment, we enjoyed spending time together and discussing social media and parenting.

spa group shotI’ve been hearing Denise talk about Dean Downing, her hair stylist, for some time. His location was way north of me. Now that he is also in Tampa, visiting him is much more realistic!


Dean gave us samples of Rusk hair products. He loves these salon-quality products from a company that offers such authentic products. While working on Alice’s hair, which gets kind of dreaded in back when she sleeps, he said large tangles like hers are a result of using cheap shampoo and conditioner. They contain wax, and wax sticks to wax, causing more knots and tangles. He washed her hair with Rusk shampoo and conditioner, and immediately was able to comb right through her hair without having to stop and detangle.

“You don’t understand,” Alice said, “my hair doesn’t just do that!” She was amazed at the sleekness just a quality washing provided. She had a fun dinner planned with her boyfriend and his parents the next day, so Dean gave her a blow out and some bouncy curls with a flat iron. She had prom hair instantly with Dean’s magic!

I needed some major layers, STAT. My curls were too thick and bulky.



We also had our eyebrows done – Alice’s were waxed and mine were tweezed.

One woman had a hair gloss added. Afterwards, I thought she had a whole new color, but it just added so much shine to her chestnut hair that the light hit it differently. It’s a great pick me up that is less expensive and not a commitment like full hair color.

We also had a giveaway for eyelash extensions.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants too go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell
