I have just come back from a much needed early winter getaway!
When I arrived the palm tree lined streets home of Ringling Brothers (yes, the circus creator) I knew I was headed to some place special!!!
Yes I live in Florida now. But I live closer to Atlanta and now was clear across the state.When I got to the sunny resorts door I smelled a scent I recognized but was not sure of. I got to my room and jumped for joy! I went to open the curtain to the balcony I discovered I was just steps from the ocean. Finally, it dawned on me I work so hard and spend lots of time in my makeup studio,TV and at airports …I didn’t realize that scent was the beautiful salty ocean air! Oh how I EMBRACED and gave in to that awesome air.
A Tropical drink is ALWAYS a good idea. Even if it isn’t filled with alcohol. But this one was a tease of it on my tongue. Just what I needed.
(I decorated the table with some of my sea finds)
A heart healthy walk and an exfoliating facial for my feet and soles was next. My feet and calve muscles loved me too!
I rinsed my hair in the sunlight and salt water detoxing my hair of any oil and product buildup. And although I did NOT sunbathe at practice what I preach…I managed to get a little kiss of color and VITAMIN SEA.
I loved the hotel balcony I hated to leave it.I shopped and window shopped,dined in some yummy places and had an amazzzing relaxing time. UNTIL my iphone had plans for me!
It died … I mean really died totally black screen would not fire up! For days!
I hated being less than 8 hours there and no phone. No connection to my beauty business. No blog posts,no social media. It was so STRANGE! I hated the feeling of being so attached with my phone and all of it’s trappings.
Long story short. I had to drive to get it checked on and perhaps get a replacement. I have only had the phone a few months. But did you know if you live out of town you cannot and they will not just give you a replacement from the Apple store? You have to go back home to where you bought it and work on getting it checked and perhaps a replacement there. Oh and it takes another week to get a new phone replacement. The diagnostics said my phone was from a bad batch that was recalled. But I was not informed. Quite a phone adventure I did not plan for.
Perhaps my phone was trying to tell me something along with the salty sea kissed air. SLOW DOWN…enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Unplug. What do you think?
