Here's a picture of my dog. She wouldn't look at me.

Every neighborhood in Anchorage, AK has their own moose.  Sometimes there are two or more.  They're everywhere.  I was fortunate once to witness a moose giving birth in my back yard and saw the fledgling moosie take it's first steps.  It was awesome and I was safely in my house where you need to be, especially when they have their babies around.

And then there was the time that my husband was on his way to work and saw two bull moose lock horns fighting in the middle of the street.  Pretty cool.

While we see them nearly every day and they're familiar with us and vehicles, seasoned Alaskans know that you can't go pet them and it's against the law to try and hand feed them.  People do it but every couple of years, someone will get stomped to death by a moose.  They're very unpredictable.  They are large animals, bigger than horses, and can turn on you very quickly.  Best just to watch from the safety of a car or home.

And there you have your moose education for the day!

My Experience At Vavoom Hair Studio Using Elumen Hair Color. Plus Small Business Saturday!!

Before I took my trip this past July '13, to attend the Cosmoprof North America 2013 show, I went to Vavoom Hair Studio, (like I do allllll the time), and had some Elumen hair color put in. The staff and stylists at Vavoom are incredibly friendly, personable, knowlegable and creative.

At that time, I had a pink streak toward the back and a color was mixed toward the front to create a coral that would match the clothing I intended to wear while I was at Cosmoprof.

So I've kind of been craving some purple lately.  I went to Vavoom and talked to Jen and this is what we did:  (the picture is taken with the slim overlayer of my hair pulled back to show off the color).

I wanted my coral to be pinker as I'm over coral until spring comes around again...I think.  But I wanted that section pinker and to add in some of the purple I've been craving lately.  Jen and I talked about what I wanted and I asked her opinion of where placement should be.  I was so happy when she offered her suggestion in the same exact placement that I thought I wanted anyway.  Refreshed the coral back into a pinker color and put some of the purple Elumen on each side and it all blends together nicely.

If you live in Alaska or are planning to visit, you have to have the artists of Vavoom Hair Studio a chance to freshen up your life.  I love my color!!  My husband loves it.  I'm very happy.  The price depends on how many colors you use and if it's applied in chunks or in light stripes.

This Saturday, 11/30/13, is Small Business Saturday in Anchorage.  Vavoom will be having SO many specials that I'll be stopping by for a couple things.  The tools, (the best in town), will all be on sale too, so head on down to 4007 Old Seward Highway, Suite 400, the strip mall right next to University Center on the south.  They will be open Saturday from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm.

You can keep up with Vavoom on their website, their Facebook page, and also on Instagram.
