A little something something to help get you through the day. I've had this one in my collection for a long time, it's sat on my vanity for as long as I can remember... I've always loved their mismatched eyes! Happy Sunday everyone..... xoxo



Unable to shake off the uneasy feelings leftover from an intensely emotional dream about being forced into a "spiritual cleanse," I decided to head over to Löyly day spa which, luckily for me, is only a few blocks from my house. I figured a mind/body cleanse would be a much better alternative, thankyouverymuch.

2 hours of alternating between the steam room, sauna, showers, and open air seating area later, I feel like a new woman. Thanks, Mel, for accompanying me!

PS I also used my new blue-green algae face mask, purchased at New Seasons (local organics grocery) for a mere $9. It works better than any expensive face mask I've ever used.... in fact, the first time I tried it my boyfriend, not even knowing I had just used a mask, got a big smile on his face and told me I looked "fresh." Testify! You can get it online here.
