If pampering is part of your weekend plans, then stop by the Dry Bar to relax, sip a cocktail and get pretty. The Bay Area is lucky to have three fantastic locations, and a few weeks ago, I spent the morning at their newest Palo Alto franchise.
I enjoyed the royal treatment of a drink, cookies and even enjoyed watching Pretty in Pink. Once my usual boring and flat hair was big and beautiful, I twirled for hours on end. It was nice to sport a playful look, considering 90 percent of the time, I sport it on a bun or pony tail.
If your hair is curly or somewhat unruly, the stylists have an array of options and ideas to choose from. What’s best is that you can even buy a services’ package and even plan a blowout party with your favorite gal pals.
There are no cuts or colors and it’s simply perfect for a night out, date night or simply to feel pretty. Another bonus? You won’t have to wash your hair for a few days, so it’s cost-effective too!
It’s All in the Details: The special touches are so fresh and feminine.
Setting the Bar High: What you’ll see upon entering
The Sweetest Thing: Who doesn’t want to enjoy a libation, gummies and watch a chick flick?
What do you want to have done? Just a few of the styles you can pick from!
Tricks of the Trade: Some of the tools used to create masterpieces!
Miracles Do Happen: My hair, after Oscar worked his magic!
Au Natural: Not a drop of makeup (say hello to my little freckles), but fabulous hair indeed!
Thanks so much to the Dry Bar for having me and my beloved mane man, Oscar Bonales, who actually works at the Fillmore Street location.
Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

Diamonds — for some they are friends while for others foes. Usually the karats I come across with are more like ‘carrots,’ so when I had the chance to get up close and personal with Tacori and its wonders, I simply said, ‘sign me up.’
Here is the deal: As I walked to meet the brands during Lucky FABB, I was blindly stopped at the iconic jeweler’s corner by its exquisite collection of baubles. At first, I was a bit bashful and simply chatted with the brand reps and Senior Vice President of Marketing and PR Michelle Adorjan, while I of course, oooeed and ahhheed at every piece present.
Shortly afterwards, I decided to feel the baubles and even asked if I could try them on. Expecting a ‘no, they are just here to be looked at,’ I was majorly surprised when Michelle shared the fact that no one at the conference had tried on this $500,000 hexagon-shaped diamond necklace. I must add that Kate Beckinsale wore the earrings from this set to the 2011 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where she looked like a million bucks!
Needless to say, all bashfulness was out the door and I played princess for five minutes. What an unforgettable experience and it’s oh so hard to forget. Of course, my gal Amy of Amy’s Vintage Closet documented the act and soon after we dubbed the Tacori area, the “Yolo Lounge” because, after all, You Only Live Once.
This could very well be the only chance I will have to become besties with the diamonds, so made it a memorable one.
Holding Precious Cargo: Michelle and I chatting about the half a million dollar bauble and she was like ‘feel how light it is.’
A Girl Can Dream: Ryzenberg On’s Holly Golightly moment!
Step and Repeat: Sporting the beauty and showing its versatility! I mean, casual or glam — this is one piece de resistance sure to be a show stopper.
Yolo: We had to! I mean this girl witness my oh, la la moment and
Token of Love: Though the diamonds went back to where they belong (a vault, I assume), I was received this little treat on the mail just a few days ago. Thank you Tacori for such an unforgettable experience and I look forward to more shining moments and milestones with you alls.
