Sure, it’s a Parks and Rec reference, but it was also a saying that my friend Tori said to me in college all of the time. Her and I worked very closely together and saw each other almost on a daily basis. Every time I put in a few extra hours or became extra stressed – she never made me feel bad for that glass of beer, that dessert that I bought for myself to indulge in, or anytime I did something when I should’ve been doing my homework or actual work. She would say to me in a very direct way, “Treat yo’self gurl!” Every now and then, I still think of her saying that to me when the times are tough and as always, I follow her advice accordingly.
One of my favorite ways to unwind is with a bath! When I was younger, I found these to be really inefficient because I always thought showers were so much faster. I think part of that was because my parents had an amazing shower with big glass panels (like those on GlassShowerDirect.com) and I used to spend hours in there, so I never chose a bath. That meant I never truly learnt to enjoy a bath, but there’s something really relaxing about sinking into one and lighting a candle. I spoiled myself awhile back by trying a bath bomb and today because it was Black Friday, I did myself a solid by buying this one above from Lush. $7 bath bombs on a monthly basis are within my budget constraints, right? If not, we’ll make sure they are.
