Random Glam Thursday

Lately things have been going a mile a minute over here. Between work, school, marathon training, family, and life there hasn't exactly been a lot of downtime lately. And I have been feeling a little worn down. So today when I found myself with a random day off, I thought "why not take a break and have a little me time." Which is how I ended up having a Random Glam Thursday.

Sarah recently had a Miracle 10 giveaway on her blog, and I randomly happened to win one of the chemical peel treatments she was giving away. Admittedly I am pretty low maintenance in this department. I have never even had a facial. I use water to wash my face. And then I moisturize with rose hip oil and go. So this is not something I would normally do for myself. But it was free and Sarah had raved about it on her blog, so I figured why not.

I visited their Yorkville location on my lunch break. I was slightly nervous going into the appointment, but the girls assured me that it was a very gentle process. I think there were about 6 or 7 different solutions/processes involved and the whole thing took about an hour from start to finish.

Here are my bare-face no-filter Before and After pictures. I think my skin tone and pigment is a lot more even in the After pictures. And I also think that I look a little less tired (or at least I hope I do). I know I definitely left feeling refreshed.

The rest of my Random Glam Thursday was complete with a manicure and the kitchen addition of these 2 adorable Owl Mugs. I don't know why, but I just think owls are so cute. So when I hubby came home with these, I totally swooned.

My Day of Glam reminded  me that sometimes it is okay to take a break. It was something my mind and body had been craving, but I chose to ignore. Some days you need to put away the to-do lists, breathe deep, be present, and just do something nice for yourself. I needed today to refresh and to regroup.

Happy Friday!
How are you going to treat yourself this weekend?
