brazilian blowout

So yesterday I finally did the brazilian blowout and it is AMAZING.  My hair was so soft when I left and so much easier to comb out after being washed, it is incredible.  I wish I had a good before and after picture but unfortunately, I just took an after.  I ever wear my hair in its natural state and therefore have no pictures of it and I really didn't feel like showering the night before just so I'd have the before pic.  Sorry!  It's kinda like this persons though:
And now my hair is like this:
I haven't washed it myself yet, so that will be the true test, but I really love it thus far.

So as I promised, here are the restaurants I've tried recently:

1) The Neiman Marcus Cafe- Somehow, I've never eaten at a Neiman Marcus before but it is delicious!  First they bring you a popover with really yummy strawberry butter- YUM!  I had the turkey burger sliders and a chocolate chip cookie and it was really tasty and the setting was so pretty.

2) Totties Asian Fusion 2- Totties is AMAZING.  If you live in AZ, you must go there asap!  I kept hearing that it was good and had been wanting to try it and I finally went last week and have been back already.  I had the Panang curry and highly reccommend it.  I think they do their spicy-ness on a 1-7 scale and the first time I got a 2 because I heard that the 4 is really spicy but I needed a little more kick so the next time I got a 3 and that was good for me.  While I was deciding on the spicyness I was thinking, WWMD, what would Marissa do?

make me pretty

Last week I got a fabulous facial from Bliss spa + microdermabrasion and it was AMAZING.  My friend Sarah that I work with looked so fresh one day and I commented on it and she said she had just gone for the facial/micro and I booked mine the very same day!  It feels amazing and facials at Bliss are such a treat because not only do they do the facial, but they also massage you too.  My skin didn't peel for a while, but now its beginning to so I'm just moisturizing a little more but I am so happy with the results and may make this a monthly treat to myself.

And tomorrow I'm getting my hair cut and I'm doing the Brazilian blowout.  I am SO excited for this!!  My hair straightens fairly easily, it takes me about 10 minutes to blow dry it, but it has quite a bit of wave/curl (the ugly kind) in it so if I can skip this process all together I will be one happy girl! If anyone needs a hair girl in AZ I have the most amazing person ever so let me know :)

I'll be sure to take pictures tomorrow...

Hereafter Movie Review

Last night I saw the movie Hereafter.  IMDB gives it 8.3 stars and the description is "A drama centered on three people -- a blue-collar American, a French journalist and a London school boy -- who are touched by death in different ways." Without giving too much away for those who still want to see it, I thought it was entertaining but a little too predictable.  It does give you things to think about, which I always enjoy in a movie, but I also felt it was a little too long and slow. 

My review makes it seem not very good- but I really did enjoy it.  I wouldn't see it again, but I think it's an enjoyable movie.  Have you seen it?

• Bliss facial & first microdermabrasion

• New skincare/makeup products

Day 4

My parents.

This is a terrible picture of everyone but the only one I can find on my computer right now.  I really have the best parents.  My mom is the sweetest person on the planet and my dad is quite the funny man.  We are all very close and they are my best friends.

Day 2

Meaning behind my blog name

Well to be honest, I struggled for a long time about what to name my blog and almost every name I wanted was already taken.  I knew I wanted something catchy, with alliteration, and I wanted it to reflect my personality as well.  As we have already established, my real name isn't bunny but bunny is fun, playful, and preppy so I think it suits me well.  I toyed around with the idea of naming my blog 'blissfulbunny' but lets be honest- aside from all my favorite bliss products, my life really isn't all that blissful.  I also liked the idea of barefoot because its casual and makes the preppy bunny a little less stuffy.

Introduce, recent picture, 15 interesting facts
 I'm Bunny.  No, I wasn't born a Bunny but I don't really want to put my real name out there.  Don't worry though, if we become bloggy besties or anything I'll tell you my name, but for now, we're just going to leave it at Bunny!

1. Bunny is actually the name of my first dog, but I like it because its cute and preppy. 
2. I've never been pulled over.
3. I always throw up on holidays.  Not every holiday, but if I'm sick w/ the stomach flu or something like that, its on a holiday.  
4. I'm actually allergic to cheap jewelery.
5. I once won a Mercedes from the mall but they wouldn't let me take it because I wasn't 21 yet. 
6. I've never been on a rollercoaster.  Or a motorcycle.  As you can tell, I'm a huge thrill seeker. 
7.  I'm a righty but I have a thing for lefties.  You're instantly cooler if you're a lefty and I'm secretly jealous of you. 
8.  Dirty kitchen water and sponges freak me out. 
9.  My whole life I thought I had a chicken pox scar.  Turns out its something entirely different and really funny but I'm not posting it.  If you really care, formspring me once I set that up!
10. I'm really into knowing if people have tattoos and what they are and I think that if people mention their tattoo's on a list like this they could include some pictures of them. For the record, I don't have any but might want a small white one. I'll probably never get it though because "it would break my dads heart," and I couldn't do that. 
11.  My parents really are my best friends. 
12.  I am bat-shit crazy about pugs. 
13.  I hate showering (but don't worry, I still do it). 
14.  Instead of having a cloth "blankie" when I was little, I had a rabbit fur that I named Donny. I believe this is why I love fur so much. I also think I love fur because I love animals so much. This may seem convoluted to some, but to me it makes perfect sense.
15.  My first tooth was removed by my babysitter who tied one end of a string to my tooth and the other to the doorknob.  True Story.  She was also my parents favorite babysitter.

glitter pumpkins

I'd have to say that fall is, by far, my favorite season. I love everything about it, the weather, the clothing, the pumpkin flavored everything, the food, etc. To me, fall is like an instant uplifter. I'm happier and more creative and this weekend, I made glitter pumpkins.

They were super easy and a great little craft to get you in the season.  I just bought some mini pumpkins, martha stewart glittler glue, some fine glitter, and voila!  Has anyone else done some fall crafting?

hi there

I've had several blogs that I've abandoned for one reason or another. People I personally knew found out about them, I got too much into blog cliques, it became too public, or I was blogging for the wrong reasons.

I'm not going to let that happen to this one. This one is mine, for keeps. I'm not going to blog for others but for ME.
