Hola Chicas Bonitas!
Is anyone celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a yummy skinny rita, tacos and great amigos? We’re doing pre-production and setting up the lights in the new closet to start taping long overdue webisodes TOMORROW! Yay, I’m so thrilled to share fresh ideas, tips and inspiration with you! Today’s blog is to remind you to do something specifically and solely for YOU this weekend chica. When you take the time to love and pamper yourself, you will have the energy to give more love out! When we feel depleted or haggard- what happens? That witch with a capital B comes out and we put out more cranky and less love. We definitely do not shine our brightest either. Right?!
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO FOR YOURSELF THIS WEEKEND?
Maybe you need to book a massage?
Take a steam sauna?
Curl up with a good book?
Go for a long walk alone?
Get a mani/pedi?
One thing I love to do on weekends is give myself a healthy homemade facial. Right now I am dealing with a slight hormonal breakout so I gave myself a Greek yogurt and lime juice facial. It’s so simple and you don’t need any fancy-shmancy ingredients or products. The lactic acid in the yogurt softens and exfoliates the skin. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin. It is also an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial so it’s fantastic for killing acne causing bacteria. The lime juice acts as a toner for oily skin. All you need is:
- 2 Tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt
- Juice from 1/2 a lime (Limes aren’t as juicy as lemons so press down on it + roll it a bit on the counter to soften it before you cut it. This will help make it juicier)
Wash face with warm water to open pores. Apply mask all over face being careful of the eye area. Leave on for 20 minutes then apply a warm wet washrag over face and pat for about a minute. Rinse thoroughly and follow by applying your fave moisturizer. Get glowing with clear skin!
For more homemade facials, watch this webisode from last summer:
If you are making skinny ritas this weekend, check out my two-cents on the different brands:
Last thing- have you checked out Jessica Simpson’s jewelry line? She is killin’ it with the accessories these days and her latest line of earrings are fabulous. You know I love gold hoops and these are fun with a bit of added oomph. A sweet “just because” gift from my BFF Heidi…
Have a fun and safe weekend! If you have a specific topic you would like me to discuss on an upcoming webisode, feel free to share it. I will be shooting weekly again and love to get ideas and feedback!
