Took a ME day recently.
What that looks like: taking about an hour to get dressed and being "in" it. I mean to say... enjoying it and not feeling guilty for doing so. I say this because it seems like I'm rushing so much as of late and I really don't like that feeling. Do you know what I'm talking about, my friends? Maybe it's the season, feel like there are a gazillion + 2 things going on right now. And this person needs you for this...and that person needs you for that. Overwhelming holidays, I guess!
A "me" day usually means getting dressed up purrrdy and taking my journal and some books to my favorite cafe while indulging in a mocha with extra whip cream, but this particular day it meant spoiling myself just a little with some goodies from Aveda and Sephora with birthday money.It's so easy to spend an hour+ in Sephora!
I've mentioned these pants, they're not vintage but Donna Karan, found at a consignment shop. And this top. OMG, so in love with it. bought it at a local vintage boutique, and was almost CERTAIN it wouldn't fit me. utterly ELATED when I found out I was wrong! I encourage you 150% to take a day ALL FOR YOURSELF at the very least once per month. :) It's become a necessity to me.
What does your ME day look like?

Not sure I would ever call hot dog recipes "tempting" but wanted to show you guys this lol book I found during my weekend thrifting trip with my siblings. That picture on the front disturbs me. The hot dog cook book is almost as depressing as the microwave cooking for 1 cookbook, remember that one? NO, I didn't buy it, just snapped a pic before we left the store. However, wouldn't you know we had a craving for a dog just after shopping! Ended up treating my brother & sis to this little coney island that serves one of my favorite guilty pleasures... the cheesie weenie (cheddar stuffed bacon wrapped hotdogs) and we left with full bellies and a very healthy helping of guilt.
