I know I said I wasn’t going to update again until it was time to start on my Summer capsule, but I just had to post about my morning.
A couple of weeks ago I received a wonderful Mother’s Day gift. My father in law bought me a gift card for a spa day. Being rainy and cold, today was the perfect day to use it!
They started on my eyebrows. I figured I’d get the unpleasant part over with right away. Getting your eyebrows waxed is a little bit like giving birth; it’s very unpleasant, but totally worth it. Okay, maybe it’s a bad comparason; giving birth is much more extreme, on both accounts. Anyway, I’d been needing to get this done for some time, and I think it makes a big difference.
A facial followed, then a massage, and I finished it off with a haircut. The haircut was another thing I’d been meaning to get done for much longer than I should have waited. She used a curling iron on my hair, which I haven’t done in years. Decades, probably. I like the result.
In other news, I did my nails last week, for the first time in a long time. Getting my wardrobe sorted out has helped me to feel a little better about how I look, and it’s kind of spread to other areas, making me want to do other things like this, too.
Ever hear of Jamberry Nails? They’re nail wraps that have a variety of different patterns and colors. They’re so much fun, and I’m glad I
found made the time to do them again.
Taking some effort in how I present myself has really given me a little bit of a pick me up. Well, I had been making an effort before, but I was distracted by so much clutter and discouraged by the results, so that it didn’t really do anything for me. This focused, purposeful way of doing it now takes much less time, and is much more effective.
Goodbye for now. I’ll be back when it’s time for Summer!
