This weekend, I’ll be heading toward the South Bay for some belated-birthday pampering from my boyfriend.
First, he’s back in California and more importantly, the Bay Area. He lives in the South Bay and though it’s still not too close to Berkeley, I am in no way complaining. Portland, you’re great, but I’m still bitter you took him from me for a year. Anyways…
For his gift to me, he has booked me an appointment at Dry Bar, a blow out bar hair salon. No cuts, no color, just blow dry and style. I’m excited for it, since I usually don’t get my hair styled much. He wants me hair straight, but isn’t going to be upset if I choose something else.
They have 8 different blow out styles and all of them are a flat rate and include a wash! Ah! Pampering for a little night out on the town! Did I not mention what we’re doing after?
We’re exploring Santana Row in San Jose–an upscale shopping center that Carlos Santana owns.
It has a ton of shops, a ton of restaurants and just a lot of cool places to see. I cannot wait!
It’ll be nice to hang out with just him. We’ve been doing things a lot of groups of friends, which is great and I love it! But we need some bf/gf time and tomorrow will be just that.
So I’m not sure what kind of food we’re getting, but I’ll definitely try to do a post where I review the restaurant. Trying a new place has been happening a lot since I’ve moved to Berkeley–but I always get excited about trying new restaurants. Sorta wish I had more restauranteurs with me in Berkeley to try things more often. Though it honestly gives me an excuse to cook more.
Well that’s my next mini adventure. I’ll end it off with a little bit of Carlos Santana in honor of this weekend:
