Tuesday Talk: Self Care Sessions Vol. 23

How was your week? I’m doing much better. I had a relaxing weekend, and I got to step inside Bergdorf Goodman for the first time. I had intended to go with the BFF to Bloomingdales for her birthday gift buying (she wanted Tom Ford Paradisco lipstick) but they didn’t have the shade so she elected to go to BG instead. Funnily enough, BG didn’t have her desired shade either, but she settled on Anderson. I splurged and bought myself their Brow Sculptor in Espresso (it’s the holiday season after all).

Here are the other things I did for self care:

1) I made pancakes for breakfast. Gaze at my culinary accomplishment!


2) I took two baths in a row: first using my Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb, then Santasaurus bubble bar. I watched TV on my tablet while surrounding by deep green water. 🙂

3) I bought myself my first Tom Ford makeup item.

4) I order a 6ft Christmas tree! It’s the first “big tree” I’ve owned exclusively. When I was a kid we had a tree but it’s not really mine. This week I’m going shopping for ornaments and lights.

5) Reminded myself that I am enough.


What did you do recently for self care?

    I love pancakes. How exciting! You have your own tree now! 🙂 I can’t wait to decorate a tree however I want lol.


  2. Oh I’m SO glad you’re feeling better and how exciting about your tree!!! I took one day entirely off and gave my worse knee a break this weekend so I could get our tree up from the basement. We’re doing the biggest tree this year and we learned to make wreaths. I’ve made them before but not after lessons from a pro, so we’re slowly getting food and decorations together.

    And I’ve been having some trouble focusing on my stitching lately, so I got my beading stuff out and have made a few bracelets…one for sis for xmas. And I have some beef marinating for a stirfry… I think we’ll probably eat it tomorrow.

    I’ve been working at healing my nails from an infection and psoriasis damage this summer and have been getting my color on again, in time for the holidays. Makes me feel like more of a finished person, lol

  3. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the brow sculptor. Pancakes sound so good right about now! I hope your friend enjoyed her birthday. 🙂

  4. I loooooooooooooove pancakes! I rarely make ’em though… I can’t muster that kind of effort in the morning, lol, so oatmeal it usually is.
