Straight Hair and Beer Tasting

Monday, January 20, 2014

Sorry for the late post today but I decided to take advantage of the long weekend by being lazy and sleeping in! Ruby even let me sleep late, so that was awesome. Normally she walks all over your face and chest, creepily staring at you waiting for your eyes to open, at which point she proceeds to lick the first layer of skin off your face. Gross.

This weekend I did something I haven't done in over 2 years... I straightened my hair. If you follow on Instagram then you already got a sneak peak! Let me tell you, it takes a lot of dedication to straighten this mane. It's a beast and is the longest its ever been after 3 years of growing it out.

Almost 2 hours and lots of burnt scalp later, it was straightish. And a bit wispy. The hubs and I planned a little date to Westbrook Brewery in Mount Pleasant. (He even put some product in his hair... which doesn't happen often so you know it's special.) We always talk about going to Westbrook during the Hobby Lobby trips I drag him to so we finally committed. This place is something like a beer-filled Biltmore compared to Holy City Brewery.




We didn't go on a tour of the facility but the tasting room itself was really nice (and crowded) so we sat off to the side of the main bar. I also came home with a fancy tulip beer glass (of course, what is it with my cup/mug collection?!)



I like light beer and since the first 4 beers in our tasting were all light, they won me over pretty easily. My favorite, which is weird because this also happened at Holy City, was the light beer with the highest alcohol content, Triple Magee. I also really liked their White Thai, it had more of a wheat flavor.

We'll definitely be going back, and my husband already made me the DD for the next trip. On a side note, I think I should really get into professional beer tasting, I'm clearly fantastic with these explanations.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I'm off to bake and craft today... Love me some time off from work!

  2. Mmm, I miss beer. I'm on the Whole 30 Challenge. Love the straight locks! I have naturally curly hair, but the more I straighten {which is often}, the easier it is to do :)

  6. Westbrook is so fun! White Thai is one of my favorite beers. I've never been to Holy City but that's funny about what you said about the difference in the two. I have heard Holy City is fun for happy hour.

  9. Holy City is DEFINITELY a 180 from Westbrook ha. The Striped Big (vodka) distillery looks fun too, but we haven't been yet. Love you hair straight, but it's so perfectly curly that it's good you know how to work it both ways!

  13. I have naturally very curly (like SHirley temple) curly and I do big waves (think Kardashians) nearly every day and maybe once a month do it pin-straight. Neither takes that long with a good straightener. I have a Sedu. Pin straight takes 30+ minutes, big waves takes 15. And my hair is really long and THICK! Anyways, just a thought that maybe a good straightener might help lighten the load if you haven't already tried that! Also, I use organix line of shampoo and conditioner which tames my mane well and primes it for Sedu stylin.
