Planning a lunch date

One of my besties called me this evening, and after a bit of catch up, we set up a lunch date in a few weeks. It’s been months since I’ve seen her, so I’m super excited! Today’s #OneGoodThing was planning a lunch date with Angelina! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! Day 14 of…

New year, new brows

Our eyebrows got a makeover today. I used a new dye and tinted Mama’s brows and my own a nice brown. Though the product I used on us previously claimed to be light brown, it always seemed to turn out much too dark on our pale skin. I was really pleased with the new coloring.…

Holiday pampering treat

Though we love our at-home facials, there’s really nothing like having a professional pamper your skin every once in a while. This week, Mama and I both had glorious, personalized facials through a holiday promotion at Elements Spa in Santa Rosa. Mama’s was yesterday and mine was today. We saw Catrina, and our treatments were…

Wine & chocolate-fueled soak in the bathtub

Other times, I call one of my besties, organize my thoughts into lists/charts, read a book, revel in…

Mama and I went for teeth cleanings earlier this week, and I learned that an old filling of mine broke and needed replacing with a crown. Thankfully, I was able to get the work done before it escalated into a root canal situation. The dentist’s office had a cancelation and squeezed me in today for…

Rearranging my bedroom

Stir-crazy self care

Unhealthy air quality due to wildfires kept us trapped inside for a fourth day. Rather than go stir crazy, Mama and I decided to dedicate the day to Self Care Sunday. Our home pampering included facials and foot baths, and it felt great! Today’s #OneGoodThing was a day of self care with Mama! Day 315 of 365.…
