This afternoon my mom & I checked out the place I have been dying to try: L'esprit Academy - a teaching salon, so the quality is great (b/c every service gets graded) and the prices are jaw-droppingly low. (Can you believe those?!) I knew they did good work for cheap, but I was interested to see what the atmosphere was like - more salon/spa, or plain & clinical? It was wonderful! My mom & I both got mani/pedis, she also got a facial she is raving about, & I also got a haircut. (Only 4" off - just the ends. ;-) But they also shampooed & dried it! That's actually a load off me for tonight!) I am so in love with the new OPI Swiss collection for fall. I have gold Glitzerland on my fingers and pewter Lucerne-tantly Look Marvelous on my toes. I can already tell I'll probably end up buying the pewter one eventually. Lovelovelove it!
I can't wait to take Sis there one day! :-P If we're still here next spring, she'll have a princess party for her 5th bday there, and maybe now that I've found this cheap-but-quality place I'm excited about, I'll actually pull the trigger on getting her VERY FIRST haircut one day soon...maybe... (No one can hold me to that, though...) I should've asked if they have gift cards... ;-)
