3 on Thursday / Bits & Bites

3 on Thursday

Last week (and both of the weekends surrounding it) was crazy busy with an activity every single night.  This week, I decided things needed to calm down a bit.  A more relaxed week is appropriate since the Yom Kippur holiday was yesterday.  I took some much needed time to reflect and suggest you do the same, regardless of religion.

I was so happy about my hair that I had to take a selfie at a recent wedding…even though it’s not a good shot of the hairstyle and the background is a hotel room.  It’s the best I could do!  Since I wasn’t heading to CT for the wedding until day-of I went to the salon right next to my apartment for a lil ‘do.  I’m always wary about new salons, but Danielle loves their blowouts.  The best part is the price.  A regular blowout is just $25.  That sure beats the $45 blowout at Drybar!  A full updo is more like $60 (again, way better than $80 at Drybar) but my style was significantly less.  I asked for a single fishtail braid with some teasing at the crown and it came to $42 with tax.  It was exactly what I wanted and cheap enough that it didn’t feel like too much of a splurge.

Matt and Karina suggested a simple tashlich ceremony before dinner at their place to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.  For this ritual, you simply throw bread into a body of water to wash away your sins and start the New Year with a clean slate.  The sunset view from Astoria Park was gorgeous.

As I mentioned, I had something every night last week (who am I?!).  One of those events was a St. Paul and the Broken Bones concert at Webster Hall.  I highly recommend listening to these guys if you don’t already.  I don’t know that wild Tuesday nights can become a regular thing, but it was fun to see some live music mid-week.
