Spring Beauty Touch-Up

Sorrento Melamine Dishes


Red ranunculus I'll plant by my front door this Spring

I'm quickly doing a few beauty-related things here and there in preparation for my upcoming birthday, a couple dates (ooh!) and a baby shower I'll throw. I probably won't have time to get a trim on my hair, but otherwise after tonight I think I'll be looking my personal best.

QUICK THINGS TO DO TODAY:

- Need to launder pet bedding?

- Check on houseplants, if you have any. Water them, move them into a sunny window if needed, and throw out anything dead. Add houseplants to your shopping list if you want a pretty spring perk-up.

- Have you eaten several "whole foods" today? Something fresh, not out of a box? An apple perhaps, an orange, or a handful of almonds?


This spring I'm using L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil to keep my skin soft and prevent dryness.

TODAY'S PROJECT: Beauty Touch-Up

I'm getting a manicure and pedicure today after work. I'll give myself a sugar scrub in the shower tonight, and shave my legs, then moisturize them. With Seattle's warmer and sunnier weather, I'm going to be wearing lots of very sheer stockings under my dresses during my upcoming dates and parties.

Also tonight I'm dying my roots. (I currently am using L'Oreal Feria's "Chocolate Cherry".

Also, I'll drink lots of water tonight and get to bed early. A rested, hydrated, smiling Carrie will be more beautiful than a tired, thirsty, grumpy one!

What beauty things might you want to take care of tonight?

LOVELY DISHES: Sorrento Melamine

I just can't find room for these in my cupboards (nor an excuse to buy them) but I couldn't resist stopping to admire these brightly colored melamine plates when I was at Crate and Barrel over the weekend. What fun they'd be for outdoor entertaining or a luau-themed party!
