Kate Gets A Make Over


Wow, this weekend was great. The rainy Saturday I spent with my friends at Juut Salonspa was refreshing and relaxing! I’ll share a few skincare tips and simple up-do tutorial over the next week, but I wanted to start with pictures from the “Day of Beauty” at Juut Salonspa.

I never thought I would say this, but a little bit of blonde is definitely more fun! Not to say I’d ever stray from my naturally brunette locks, but the balayage treatment was just the change I needed. Pair the new ‘do with a bright coral lip, and I felt totally made over. Just a few small changes is all it takes to shake things up!

A few new products I fell in love with during my visit: Aveda Lip Treatment and Pure Abundance Hair Potion. Both will be hard-working tools in my beauty arsenal.

If you are a Minnesotan, be sure to check out Juut’s first annual “Daymaker Benefit” supporting Angel Foundation. I’ll be there to enjoy the fashion show and to support Juut’s amazing Daymakers and the Angel Foundation. Check it out and let me know if you’ll be there too!

    Sounds like a magical day of pampering! Totally with you on the blonde bits, they always manage to bring a little extra light and life into your face, even if the overall color of your hair is darker. Looking forward to the tips and tricks you learned!

    I like the new look! Although a word of warning I too used to love pure adbundance but for some reason mine kept glooping together about half way through the bottle so I’ve moved on to Bumble and Bumble texture!

    i love the aveda pura abundance! I’m always afraid of it shaking up too much in my hair kit and dissolving before getting to use it though. haha
