New York

I love New York City. This will be the third time that I have been to the Big Apple, and every time I try and picture myself in Carrie Bradshaw’s (amazingly stunning Manolo Blahnik) shoes.

The Bumble and Bumble University is in New York, which is why I was there. I, and one other lady from work, went to take a coloring class. In the salon that I work at in Sherwood Park we sell Bumble and Bumble hair products. Bumble is a very unique company. Aside from being the best in their class for hair products, they have an amazing university that is taught by celebrity stylists. Everyone that goes to take classes at the university has to be a fully licensed hair stylist. The thing that I love about the university is they don’t teach anything from the “books” of hair schools. Everything they teach is very artistic, how it feels while you are cutting or coloring, and to how to get the look that you want for each client. In the three classes that I have taken at Bumble and Bumble, I have learnt much more than I did in my whole schooling process to become a hairstylist. Did I mention the color class was only 2 days long?! It was a very long and intense days, but so rewarding.

All of the photos that I took of the inside of Bumble where taken on my cell phone. Bringing my “big” camera around while I was in the University and shopping was not going to happen. Much too heavy! My next post will be the photos off of my phone for you to see a little bit of how it is set up. From this photo it doesn’t look like much, but it is 8 floors and the walls are all glass so you get to look out over all of New York.

On the last day we were there I took out my big camera to get some photos of pretty buildings and different site-seeing that we did. This is the first time that I did a bus tour, which was surprisingly fun! I’m not much for seeing sites (did I say I’m a shopper?) but I was pleasantly surprised with how interested I was with the history of New York.

The Chelsea Market is a fun place to go and look around. It almost feels like you are underground when you are inside! They have little shops with different food to buy, or sample sales of some name brand clothing.

Times Square, this is where we got on the bus to start the tour.
