It is a very foggy day here in Florida. The sun looks like it wants to peek in but the fog is in the way. Mother earth is talking and flowers are popping even though it is still our winter here.The flowers and birds tell me spring is on the way.

How’s life going for you? Staying safe and healthy I hope.

Today is self care Sunday. I don’t really know who started and declared it a day but I seem to always honor it and do something for my face,skin and body on Sundays. Not just the basics of skin care but do a bit more. How about you? Do you enjoy and partake of a little R&R too?

The first thing I like to do is plan a drink. It can be a pitcher of water with fruit or veggies infused.

It can be a pitcher of Champagne cocktails or as simple as a sipping a cup of coffee like cafe au lait I make at home or an aromatic cup of tea.

Fill green tea in a Muslim bag, bundle in cheesecloth or paper tea filter from a gourmet or tea store.

Run a warm 🛁 water bath water .

Place the tea bundle in the bath water.

If you have muscle aches or want a bit more to the bath add some Epsom salts to the bath water.

The tea helps with stress, body aches, swelling and A just a plain tired body.

Selfies

I don’t do selfies. NEVER have!!!
And when I take an unexpected pose for a photo request I also don’t pose in photos with that one arm on the hip syndrome when standing and striking a pose like a fashion model. I am just ME.

Here’s my NEW headshot. No, I am not in the pose I just told you about above. I am sitting on a couch and resting my arm on arm of the chair.The photographer captured me last week like I never expected.She bought my soul and spirit to life.I added the fun sunglasses as I am crazy for all things lips! I love the way the pic’ turned out. Do you?
This photographer from Poland rocks the lens like no one else I have ever been with!!!

I used to take a photo with my twin and am so happy I have those memories as my twin died unexpectedly. Since that time I decided to take photographs more often.I convinced my many sisters to do it too.Each year is like a chapter of your life. Life is short I made it a point to take a photo every few years so I can see the many sides of me.Every face has a story.

When did you last take a photo if ever with a professional photographer and not NOT a selfie?

What does your picture and face say about you?
