Brûlée coffee and a cut

My new favorite tradition is to treat myself to a caramel brûlée latte when I go downtown to get my hair cut. The staff at Crooks Coffee are always so sweet and their drinks and food are fantastic! Many thanks to Matthew and D’nae at Ritual Salon for sprucing up my wild pixie! I love…
