Dessert du Jour...Make Time For You!

Lately, I have been making a concerted effort to spend time with my girlfriends doing fun 'girly' things. I am a home-body by nature, so making plans to go out in the evening when my boys are home is not something that I am usually interested in. But I decided that I needed to be adventurous, get out, and have some fun!

The first event we went to was a Ladies Night Event organized by Sheckys.com at Chicago's Union Station's Grand Hall. Sponsored by Little Black Dress Wine, Midori, and various Boutiques and Salons, it was a mecca of Shopping, Sipping, and Socializing. You could get a free chair massage while enjoying sample size glasses of Chardonnay and then browse the rows of jewelry, purses, and clothes while in the company of your friends and, in my case, clients! The energy and mood there was exhilarating and electric and especially for my friend's as they are stay-at-home mom's with young children.

Last night, it was an evening with my new Bunco Ladies. If you are not familiar with Bunco, it is a simple dice game that takes virtually no skill, but provides the perfect excuse for 12-16 women to ditch their hubbies and kids and snack, socialize, and sip for a few hours. We have a wonderful and diverse group of women and we all got along famously and are looking forward to next month's game, which I am hosting.

I am sharing these 2 recent experiences with you to show you the importance of "Me Time" that we sometimes forget to take during our busy lives. "Me Time" is basically stepping out of your comfort zone for a short period and doing something new, something different, or even something you've been wanting to do for a long time, but haven't. It provides the opportunity to meet new and interesting people and re-charge your battery so you are ready to face your daily routine with new energy and enthusiasm.
How does this relate to fragrance? Well, it makes the perfect opportunity to pamper yourself by soaking in a tub up to your neck in bubbles or participate in putting together a "Pamper" or "Shopping" Party for you and your friends. Spa Girl Parties (http://www.spagirlparties.com/) has representatives that will come to your home and pamper you and a group of friends and you can also purchase the products that they use on you so you can continue to enjoy them.
We, at http://www.thebodybakery.com/ have also been invited to display our products at an upcoming in-home shopping event on November 4th that will also feature Pampered Chef, Lia Sophia Jewelry, Gold Canyon Candles, and other products perfect for Holiday Gift-Giving. If you are in the (far) Northern IL area, I will be posting all of the details here as the date gets closer and hope to meet some of you in person!
Have an enjoyable and fun Holiday weekend and be sure to take some time out for you! You'll be so glad you did! No posts over the weekend and since Monday is Columbus Day, the next post will be Tuesday.
