Uptown Liz- Where Shopping Give Back!


A great MakeHerUp reader Ramona Russell  let me know about her site Uptown Liz. Founded in honor of her sister Liz who passed away at age 28 from breast cancer, Uptown Liz  promotes products from companies whose proceeds directly give back to charitable organizations.

The site is really easy to use you can search  by cause or product. So when you start your Holiday shopping stop by Uptown Liz and on top of finding great gifts online you can help fund charity work.

New Salon Find!


Last Fall I made the very poor decision to try to skip a trip to the salon and try to color my hair myself. I tried to color my hair a pretty chocolate brown color but as I stepped out of the shower I realized my hair was raven black! It was fun for awhile but then I wanted to go back to my normal blonde color unfortunately my hair was not ready.

Now nearly a year later and many trips to the salon to lighten my hair it was still a dark shade of red. I tried a new place called Salon Hair Say and had the owner Eddie color my hair. I am so excited because my hair is finally blonde again and it looks amazing. Eddie spent over two hours weaving the blonde in trying to lift as much color as possible. I have a ton of hair and he spent a lot of time making sure I left happy with my color and cut.

If you are searching for a new hair place in Beaverton, OR I highly recommend Salon Hair Say. The salon was really cute and I felt really relaxed while I was there, all the stylists were friendly and helpful. They even have a kids play room if you are unable to find a babysitter.
