There is a saying, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” and oftentimes we find ourselves embracing that very idea when we go on vacation, whether it is in Vegas or not. Maybe you are a fan of the tv series, Friends? If so, you might remember the episode when Monica gets her hair braided? Going on vacation does funny things to a person sometimes. When else do you have a near guarantee of never seeing the people around you ever again? This sudden annonymity plus the somewhat irrational thoughts that can come when you are happily given your freedom from your normal life can really make you consider doing things that you look back on later and wonder, “What was I thinking?”
Have you ever done anything like that while on vacation?
One of my favorite little vacation “guilty pleasures” is ditching my makeup regime for the day, throwing my hair up in a bun, and heading out for the day. It is so nice not having to worry about seeing an acquaintance at the grocery store… which is exactly what happens every time I do it at home! It is not as extravagant as braiding my hair with seashells. but it is such a luxury!
