Weekend Rewind and a Giveaway

Spring finally sprung this weekend in Boston (not to worry Winter is showing it's colors this week) but nevertheless, I didn't have to wear a hat or tights this weekend…WIN!!

I decided it was about that time to get my hair cut. As mentioned in this post, I was still going to keep it long, just needed a little more life. For my Boston peep's I went to Alexander Salon in Coolidge
Corner and they offer 20% off for new clients (which I fully took advantage of since this was my first visit). For as many times a year as I get my hair cut, I usually bounce around to different salons around the area, but was very happy with the service and will probably go back.
Happy to have life back in the hair!! Thankfully I picked the perfect day to get my hair cut because it was time to chow down at Fogo De Chao. 

When the green side is up - it's a free for all with men dressed as Brazilian Gaucho's coming to your table one after the other - the meat that is served is amazing and really great quality!! Word to the wise - this was our second time here and we learned our lesson by not hitting the "salad bar" (which is more like a meal in itself) and focussing all the attention on the meat!

After dinner we went for drinks at OAK Long Bar + Kitchen located in the Fairmont Copley. 

Quickly became my new favorite spot in Boston…so much so that I told Gary I wanted to have my birthday dinner there!! 

Sunday night I wanted to try something a little different for dinner and found this shrimp scampi with linguine recipe on Instagram and followed the link to Bryan Talbott's website. He has a step by step guide on YouTube as well. 
I can't even show you the picture of what ours looked like because we devoured it in record time. I assure you - ours was not nearly as presentable!! 

But, now that the weekend is over - how about some extra cash for the next weekend??
These generous ladies and myself wanted to give you a little lovin' so please enter the giveaway (who doesn't like free money?!) and check out the other fabulous ladies as well!! I'm really excited to be participating in my first giveaway with some pretty wonderful bloggers!! 


Hope you have a wonderful start to the week!! 

xoxo,
Biana

  15. Your hair is gorgeous. I love the long layers and curls. Score on the 20% too. Heck yes. I love that restaurant concept where they come over with food with your thing is red or green. I did something like that at the beach. We were miserably full, haha.
