Starbucks hot apple crisp macchiato

In a previous post I reviewed the iced apple crisp. Today is a strange weather day it’s sunny and raining at the same time. Cold from the wind and hot from the sun at the same time. It seemed to be a perfect day to try a fall drink released in summer.  I also had stars that were going to expire soon. I would normally order a tall since I was using the stars I got a grande. The only customization I did was request coconut milk. I know it’s not the best for this kind of drink it’s the one I like the most. Otherwise I wanted to try it the way it came.  Previously I had gone shopping with my mom and then decided to walk home. I had a heavy bag of flour to carry on the 1.5 km home. I was hoping that I could sit outside at Starbucks. All the outside tables were taken and inside was efficient with them having a person opening and closing the door and telling you to go pick up your mobile order if it’s there. I’m not comfortable sitting inside anyways but it was definitely an atmosphere of gra

March 24, 2017 Hair Manicure






Today I had my first ever hair manicure what is a hair manicure that is what I thought. I have never coloured my hair before and always said I would do it when I had more grey hair. As I am almost 40  I was starting to get a few more so decided I would try with my next hair cut. I made the appointment at my favourite salon Annex knowing they always give me good cuts its where I felt comfortable going. All the stylists are Japanese here and the girl on the phone didn't speak much English I couldn't really convey that it was my first time getting my hair coloured. Luckily the stylist I got had better English and was really patient in explaining this to me. She said I shouldn't colour my hair as my hair is really soft and it would damage it but they have something called a hair manicure which would be less damaging and also make the hair shiny I said sure. As I only have grey at the top so far and not that much she suggested that I just do the touch up with is $25 and a whole head would be $70 again I agreed. First she cut my hair and told me she would check it after the manicure was done. As I have black hair the stylist told me that if I did anything lighter it won't cover the grey so I should go with black and I agreed. She painted the polish on my hair she did go through my whole head but painted it on at the top and then combed it down. Then she came out with plastic wrap and really covered my head with plastic wrap. Then I sat under a big machine that heated my head it was like the nail dryer machine except that it was head sized. This really was a manicure for hair I was thinking as I sipped my green tea and read a magazine while waiting for my head to dry. Then after a while the timer rang on the machine and it was time to wait 5 minutes longer and then shampoo. Then I got the massage they always give with haircuts and she cut my hair some more. The colour matches my hair colour exactly there is no chemical smell and my hair is still soft and shiny. The stylist told me that as my hair is fine and soft that I should always do a hair manicure and never colour my hair as that will damage it. I am happy with the results so I will stick to hair manicures for the foreseeable future.
