The theme this month is about being grateful and then going deeper. It’s about appreciating what you already have and making it more meaningful; more beautiful; more YOU!
One lesson I learned during the past few years is to be grateful for what was already interesting to me. I am a discoverer, an observer who is always on the hunt for more – more info, more ideas, more creativity, more ….
I learned a lot while in lockdown while spending so much time at home without the usual stimulation or distractions. I realized how full my life already was. The hunt has always been fun but it really is kind of superficial. I wasn’t necessarily going deep into the million interesting design books I’ve bought nor using all of the beautiful linen napkins I had to have, to name a few. I just kept wanting the next one.
It took the quiet of the pandemic to teach me that I just needed to be aware of and appreciate the things I’ve already deemed worthy of being in my home and in my life. What a fantastic LESSON!
This lesson has bled into other areas of my life and I think it might be an interesting and more sustainable approach from now on. Below, I have some various ideas of ways to go deeper in your life this beautiful month of MAY.
As far as your BEAUTY routine is concerned, did you know that icing your face has long been a secret to having not only brighter and clearer skin but it’s also a great trick to having a healthy-looking glow? The benefits include reduced inflammation, reduced pore size, exfoliation of the skin, and blood circulation.
How it works… When cold ice is applied to an area of the skin it causes the blood to rise to the surface which constricts the blood flow and tightens the skin. What’s left is a pink rosy complexion like you get when you’re outside in the wintertime. Catherine the Great was said to have applied ice to her face, neck, and décolletage every morning to give her skin a radiant appearance. There are many professional cryo treatments out there but I say if Catherine the Great can do a little at-home facial then I think I can too. It’s more immediate and a bit more accessible. Here are some ideas to get your skin glowing every day.
