Spa Night

SPA Night

I'm sure I'm not the only one with a hectic life and sometimes it just gets so stressful . As a Wife, Mom Grandmother, housekeeper, well you know what I mean, constantly running, always something to do, usually not to glamorous and nothing for yourself

Well once in awhile it's fun to have a night to spoil oneself, exactly what I am planning for Saturday night !

First a nice Cholesterol hair pack. Then I am going to try a new product, Fructis Sleek and Shine, suppose to keep your hair frizz free even in 95% humidity, well this being Florida, we will just see about that !

Next a nice long steamy hot shower, You know that kind of shower where the bathroom gets all hot and cloudy with steam !

More spa products, let's see. Going to use Olay Body wash, which was a great buy at Costco a few weeks ago, 2 for less than the price of one.

I have found this body wash to be great for shaving your legs too, I mean you only have so much room !

OK got to get out sometime, waiting , 2 fluffy pima cotton towels, one a bath sheet to wrap in and a fluffy towel for the hair. A great time to pluck those few stray eyebrow hairs. Now some soothing face creams I have been using Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream another Costco item that was 2 for maybe a little more than one, my daughter and I split these making it great for both of us, I love bargains ! This cream makes you feel spoiled, hope it helps the wrinkles ! A comb out and a little dab of One and Only Argan Oil, I get this at Sally's, great for frizz, but use less than you think you need .


Next a quick pedicure and a beautiful new OPI red color on my toes and fingertips. And my favorite beauty product of all time AmLactin, use it on your arms , legs everywhere you want to be SOFT. If you have skin damage this product will become your best friend. By the way this is also another Costco item about $5. cheaper than the drug stores.

A blow dry, and tonight I will use the flat iron so my hair will be straight , soft and silky.

A last touch a dab of your favorite perfume, mine being Channel #5, and I'll bet I will be feeling like a queen,

 I think you should try this ASAP, so you can spoil yourself too !

Tooth Fairy

About loosing a tooth.

Wow ! It's been a long time , but I still remember loosing  teeth.

Today my Granddaughter , Katy lost her second tooth !  She was brushing
her teeth this morning and out it came.  She was so happy, she kept
worrying about swallowing it during the night, I told her I never knew anyone
that swallowed a tooth, but she was very leery !

And now the tooth is out and ready to be put under the pillow.  Now when
I was a little girl, you wrapped the little tooth in a tissue and put it under
your pillow and usually you woke in the morning to find a nice shiny dime, or if
you were very lucky you may even find a quarter under there.

When Katy's Mom, my daughter, lost a tooth many years ago, I  remember
leaving her a shiny half dollar. I still have 4 of her teeth, little hard pearls
that were left for the tooth fairy, in my top drawer in an old pill bottle,
strange the things Mom's keep !

In today's world, my daughter has a plastic contraption for Katy , that you
put the tooth in , there is a place for quite a few teeth, and a little slot for
the fairy to put the money in, and all the baby teeth are saved forever . Katy
informed me that she was left five dollars for the first tooth she lost, a and
was expecting the same this time. Of course, Katy wanted to know why the fairy
didn't take the tooth from the plastic thing, so her  Mom had to come up
with a quick answer. She told her the fairy had an overload of teeth at the time
and needed to leave them for the time being and maybe collect them at another
time when she had a shortage.

Times have sure changed, but they have stayed the same too.  In today's
economy, maybe I got the better deal when I was a kid !!!
