Why My 10+ Year Love Affair With Self Tanner Hasn't Stopped While Social-Distancing

Like many of you reading this right now, I've been social distancing for three weeks and counting. I've been outside four times in the past week, and, in that time, I haven't spoken to anyone else face-to-face, in the flesh, but my partner. So why would I bother going to the effort of self-tanning while social-distancing? There are a few reasons, but the main one being, because I f*cking can. I've been a self-tan devotee since I was about 14 years old. In my teens, I was a competitive Irish danc...

Bring Some Scents - Errr, Sense - of Calm to Your Workspace With These Home Fragrances

No matter if you're settling down with a computer at a proper desk or in an improv set-up, setting the mood can do wonders for your actual work from home. Something as simple as a candle, diffuser, or room spray can make this new normal all the more pleasant and give you a little extra self-care, too. We looked through all the home fragrances at Sephora and picked out the best options from calming aromas to energizing boosts, including Jo Malone London, Vitruvi, Phlur, and more. In addition to d...

How To Create A Luxurious At Home Spa

We’ve experienced a whirlwind of emotions over the past week. We’ve cried, laughed, panicked and laughed some more. To say it’s a crazy time right now is an understatement. But in the spirit of keeping calm and carrying on, this weekend we set up a luxury spa in the comfort of our own home, and indulged in our favourite beauty treatments. It was bliss. It helped calm our anxieties. And it felt bloody good. So good in fact, that we’ve decided it has to be a weekly thing. ‘Self-care Sunday’ is wh...

How My Skin-Care Routine Has Become a Form of Self-Care During These Uncertain Times

We were one week into shelter-in-place in the Bay Area, and I felt like I was letting things really fall apart. I struggled to find the balance of being a parent and an employee (still do!), ate sad meals I quickly hacked together, and lived in my sweatpants. I still took my daily shower, but I'd say my efforts to take care of myself were at about 15 percent of normal. Then, that night, I washed my face. I followed that with toner, serum, and my night cream. It was the first time I had completed...

13 Ways Our Editors Are Practicing Self-Care During Social Distancing

We're almost through with week two of social distancing - although that timeline is a little different for everyone - and it's safe to say it's been quite the adjustment. Naturally, we're going through a stressful period and spending an increased amount of time in doors doesn't help, but many of us are trying to make the best of it by focusing our energy on self-care. Self-care looks a little different for everyone. For some, it's following along to workout videos from their bedroom; for others...

The Easy Time-Management Trick I Use to Stay on Top of My Work and Self-Care Routine

Whether you're juggling your job duties and family ones (in the same space) or just working from home solo for the first time, it's going to be an adjustment. Trust me, I feel you. When I first starting working from home as a freelancer, I found time management to be one of the most challenging aspects to master, from the pressure from "just one more email" to the siren song of a nearby couch and TV. However, in addition to my actual job (which I've done remotely for a while now), I've also appo...

How To Feel Confident in The Skin You’re In

The truth is that at one point or another, most of us will lack self-esteem and feel unconfident in our own skins. Studies have shown that at one point in their lives, four out of five women will feel uncomfortable with their appearance. We all have features that we wish looked different, and friends whose figures we admire, and wish were our own.

Getting Your First Massage? Here's What to Know Beforehand

I am someone who physically internalizes my emotions to a large degree. This means that oftentimes, my body just hurts, and I am desperate to find relief. I have tried a few things to remedy the big muscle knots in my back: yoga, meditation, and (when I can afford it) massages. By far, in my experience, massages do the best job at alleviating my pain. But because they can be pricey, getting a massage can be the ultimate act of self-care. Personally, I often ask for a massage gift certificate ins...

Does Loving God Feel Hard Today?

I bought myself flowers from Trader Joes last week. White hydrangeas, little yellow daisies, and long, green, leafy filler. I arranged the bouquets into a mason jar and instead of placing it by the kitchen sink or on the entry way table, I set them beside my bed. I’ve never done this before. Flowers aren’t cheap and die quickly. All three bundles cost me $12. Flowers should be enjoyed by the most people possible. They should grace the dining room table or greet guests as they walk in the door. I...

Today’s Outfit: A Rose Is A Rose Is A (14k) Rose

Looks like fall here in New Hampshire and it feels like it too. We’ve had a few chilly days where I woke up to see a layer of frosty mist on the front lawn. My window boxes of Impatiens still look good though! Hard to believe my baby is already 2 months old. He’s huge (13+ lbs), gorgeous, and has a head full of curly dark brown hair. How did I get so lucky? After growing and giving birth to 5 kids, I’m amazed by my body. Does it spring back into shape magically? Hell no. But I try to ...
