Take the Spa Home

Take the Spa Home

Let’s go to the spa… or even better let’s take the spa home. Run yourself a nice bath and treat yourself to some relaxing down time. You deserve it. It is, Sunday anyways. You don’t have anywhere important to be ;).

I’ve been told so many times to make sure you take care of yourself too once you have the baby. I didn’t fully understand what that meant because I thought that if I am home all day I will have time to tend to my myself too. Nope, there are just not enough hours in the day! Especially if you make plans. It takes 3 hours to just get out of the house (if you want to get ready too). So taking a bath and having some me time is needed! Continue reading “Take the Spa Home”

Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

Healthy Peanut Butter Balls

Today is December 1st! Oh my goodness where did the time go?! Basically to me, this month means way too many treats. With myself having a two month old now and trying really, really, really, hard to get off the sugar I was once addicted too throughout the entire pregnancy (tons of blizzards, yum!) I am nervous now that it is officially into the holiday season. But also, my skin! It’s still stabilizing from all of the ingested sugary  foods. A couple of weeks ago, I started making these and keeping them in the fridge so that if I really needed a sugar fix they were on hand. Sometimes I may have over indulged and devoured almost all of them, but that’s okay, right? Burn it off with a walk, right? haha. 

Basically this recipe you can alter it a couple of different ways with no sugar at all, or my way, which has only maple syrup added to it. You can substitute the maple syrup with coconut oil instead, however the mixture doesn’t roll into balls very easily. When I made it with coconut oil instead, I spread it out in a deep dish then refrigerated for a couple of hours then cut into squares. They were delicious this way as well. Completely up to you on how you’d like them done. Continue reading “Healthy Peanut Butter Balls”

Post-pregnancy Skin

Post-pregnancy Skin

She’s here! Well 8 weeks ago she arrived… I’d like to say that everything has been smooth sailing, but to be honest I have been very tired and my brain, to say the least, hasn’t been quite all there. So, I didn’t want to be writing anything on my page then looking back at it with extreme regret haha. ‘Mom brain’ is real apparently! Or maybe it’s just the lack of sleep from getting up to feed a tiny beautiful human every 1-3 hours all night and day. My little girl is very hungry and will, most nights, wake up every 2 hours to feed. The nights are long, but I absolutely love and cherish the bonding. Continue reading “Post-pregnancy Skin”

At Home Mini Facial

At Home Mini Facial

It’s that time again! Another school season has embarked upon us. Over the summer month’s I have a lot of parent’s that bring their teenagers in for acne and skin treatment’s. We offer various different options for them depending on how their skin condition is. If it’s mild I may recommend just a version of a mini facial. Now when we think of a facial, we think of spa relaxation. But I don’t unfortunately offer any relaxing treatments. We get down to business and aim for results. With a mini facial I usually recommend that it’s something they need to fit into their routine. Coming in as much as 1-4 times a month (so weekly in some cases). I would only recommend this routine to someone who has superficial breakouts, needs a general clean up, or was using the wrong products/make up for their skin and just needs to get back on track.

This too can be done at home very easily. You can perform this mini facial at home on yourself in conjunction with other services you may be getting as well (always consult on what products to use with your expert to ensure they will not conflict with any other treatments you may be receiving).
