If you don’t watch Parks and Recreation. Do yourself a favor– stop everything that you are doing, and go watch it. Right now. All of the seasons.
One of the recent episodes was so wonderfully hilarious that I had to watch it three times. Yes, I will admit that I watched it in succession, but whatever– don’t judge.
That shit is hilarious.
The theme of the episode was to “treat yo’ self”– a full day of doing whatever Tom and Donna felt like doing. Of course, their”treats” revolved around absurd purchases and a day at the spa.
Fine leather goods? TREAT YO’ SELF
Today, I decided to treat MYSELF, and get a facial. Yes, you know it was from a deal site– half off?! ABSOLUTELY. I justified this purchase due to the fact that I haven’t ever had a facial. Word on the street is that it is like an orgasm for your face… ?
So I obviously had to see what all the fuss was about.
And yes, I am now addicted to facials. I am going to start scouring the internet for discounted facials, furiously googling, clogging my inbox with even MORE junk mail. It is so worth it.
I have never seen my pores so open, my skin is so delicious looking. Radiant! Glowing! Almost perfect enough to have me shell out $200 for the skin care– thank goodness I stopped myself before things got TOO out of control.
Here is what it comes down to. When you are taking care of your body– you are eating right, you are exercising, you are drinking copious amounts of water, you deserve to TREAT YO’ SELF.
It is like you are refining and recreating yourself into the best that you can be– or at least that is what I am saying as I shell out money I should be saving so I can get rubbed for 60 minutes and have pumpkin exfoliate smeared all over my body.
Just like Donna and Tom advise– find whatever your treat may be, and do it up– at least once a year.
(or once a month… depending on the deal)
Ps. I know I promised a yoga/christmas post… it will come. It just has to be perfect. My two loves– combined.
