What We Love: Pamper Yourself
With the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, every woman probably spends at least some time thinking about what that means. For some, it’s remembering special friends who have battled or are battling the disease. For others, it’s more personal, relating to their own experiences with breast cancer. No matter where we fall on this spectrum, now is a good time to be good to ourselves! Go get a facial or a massage. Buy a new lipstick or perfume. Get yourself some flowers and a yummy hand cream. You deserve it!
