Last weekend, I had a great time with friends at a leadership opportunity and had what I call an unexpected “me day”.😊 It was kind of a full circle moment for me because for most of my life, I’ve been a gift giver. Truthfully, I’ve never been comfortable being a gift receiver.
My day started with a hug and being given this super cute mint hard cover notebook by my friend Lynn. She knows that even though I’m a teacher, I take pride in being an excellent student. 🤓This unexpected token of acknowledgement made my morning!
When I arrived home in the afternoon, my husband told me I had a package delivered 🎁(hmmm...I didn’t order any shoes from DSW). I was super giddy when I saw it was from my friend Heather and knew it was the earrings I had picked out from Nickel & Suede. I had been drooling over a pair that another friend was wearing and Heather must have known I would love these as a gift. When she told me to choose anything from their website as acknowledgement of my hard work, these brown leather ones spoke to me. 💗They are even cuter in person and light as a feather!
Working in this business for the past year has opened my eyes to the fact that I am worthy of receiving tokens of acknowledgement (whether physical or written). I’ve literally had to retrain my brain that it’s ok (and normal) and know I’m not the only person out there to feel this way. The truth is...I NEED to be acknowledged for what I’m doing RIGHT and I don’t get much of that at my day job. I know some of you are like “Welcome to the club!” or “That’s life!”. 🤔Is it really or is that all we feel worthy of? Whatever the case, my “me day” felt damn good and knowing that it’s a result of helping others makes my ❤️ full!

After a long week I decided to treat myself with a bath. I'm not really a bath person but after sleeping wrong, I decided to indulge in some bath time. I grabbed a magazine and the @epicuren hydrating bath salt. It was very relaxing. I sat in there for a while until I got way too hot and had to get out. What is your favorite way to relax? #bathtime#relax#fridays
Buenaaaaas noches ángeles 🤗Me paso por aquí para dar el presente con la ultima foto de el Makeup de ayer ❤️Hoy he decidido darle un respiro a la piel porque esto de maquillarse todos los días me va a jugar una mala pasada en mi vejez 😜aunque lo cierto es que también estoy tan liada con el trabajo que hoy le dedique el 100 % al work. Ya dejo de darles la lata y les deseo un feliz fin de semana, que lo disfruten a pleno y sean muy muy felices. Recuerden sonreír aunque sea una vez al día que hace bien al alma 😃 Feliz fin de semana chiquilines pasenlo bonito 💕#makeupgeekcosmetics
Look at this beauty! She was a challenge, because of her very fair skin tone (she's half albino! So cool) luckily I had some white cream foundation to mix with because NC10 was still dark on her 😮 so fun to work with different skin tones. Best way to learn 👌🏻
Cure for the doldrums discovered: Bronze Goddess. Frangipani, ginger, mandarin, packaged up in a luscious stream of vanilla and coconut. Like a little holiday (that's a hell of a lot more idyllic than any real holiday I'm likely to take of we're being honest). .
