friday forecast, toot for me, and new challenge.

Looks like the weather is going to be wet and humid. Doh! However, I’m so thrilled that tomorrow is Friday because that means New York is going to get a piece of me! πŸ™‚ It’s been a couple of years since I’ve visited, so I’m really looking forward to the hustle and bustle of the city.

On another note, these past couple of days have been incredibly wonderful. I’ve had the time to sit and just meditate. The more I meditate, the more I appreciate everything that has been given to me. I feel so utterly blessed. This year has been my year.

I spent a whole day at the spa. Oh, how relaxing that was. I haven’t gone in years, so that full body massage was totally worth it.

Wouldnt it be nice if I could do this at least once a month?!

I wish this was a daily routine.

I wish I had my own personal spa.

I wish I had my own personal spa.

I was almost out the door when the spa manager pulled me to the side, and said, “Excuse me. Do you mind if I use your face? You’re really pretty!” At this point, I was thinking, “What the heck?! Are you hitting on me?!” It turns out that the spa manager wanted to test the latest makeup products on my face. At first, I was hesitant because I prefer to be more natural with a minimal amount of makep on my face. However, with a little convincing, I sat as an experiment to the makeup artist…and it turns out I absolutely LOVE Being True. Let’s just say my wallet is crying. *sniff sniff*

Here’s some before and after photos for fun:

I’m sold! These are the only makeup products I will ever use, EVER! I don’t really wear make up, but I couldn’t help but splurge. I know these products are expensive, but at least they are earth conscious. πŸ™‚ They are only sold at select spas, so if you are interested, check your local spa.

Now for some scrappingΒ  fun… Do you like flowers? These Are a Few of My Favorite Things does! The second challenge is to create a layout or project that indicates your favorite flower. The DT did an amazing job with this round. …and I’d love to share my project, but Basic Grey now owns publication rights to my project. To check it out click here.

Okay, off to relax before I hit the sheets. The next couple of days are going to be eventful, but tiring.

Until next time,


PS: Congratulations, Gloria. I’m really proud of you. πŸ™‚ I knew you could do it, and I can’t wait for these upcoming months.

PPS: Scott, next time you see a barn, don’t count to six. πŸ˜‰

  4. WOW! That make-up really makes your face come out from behind the darker hair. πŸ™‚ I should suggest it for my cousin, she’s half korean and looks korean, but her complexion is so wishy washy from years of pimples. xD I hope you have fun in New York.
