Tomorrow, my daughter and I will be having a "home-spa" evening. We try to get to local day spas every other month for facials, and bi-weekly for manicures and pedicures. From time-to-time, we just enjoy staying in and pampering ourselves. I am so grateful that my sweet daughter still lives at home, she is still in school studying to become a Child Psychologist, and so our time together is really special. One of our favorite things to do together is, of course, shopping...just like most girls. We often go to Sephora for cosmetics, fragrances, and skin-care products, but we also love making homemade spa treatments. Living so close to the beaches, we have some natural ingredients right from Mother Nature and access to some of the fresh's fruits and vegetables. I've included a wonderful website http://www.spaindex.com/ that has some great recipes and locations of spas that I've shared with some family and friends. I've also included, some beautiful relaxing pictures of spa's from around the world and spa accessories...time to sit back, relax and get ready for a long holiday weekend.
- Desert Dreaming
- I was motivated to start a blog by reading all the wonderful talented individual's who have blogs out there. So, I want to make this blog about everyone who reads it. My family and God always comes first in my life. I want to share my experiences and in turn, hope to get feedback and ideas from you. I love unique things, I adore anything that sparkles (not over the top though) I love decorating, cooking, gardening, photography and shopping. My number one passion is photography! To me it becomes more than a picture, it can become a piece of art, or a beautiful memory. Decorating, though I am not a professional, and don't claim to be, has been a part of my life since I was very young, and just love searching and shopping for new ideas and incorporate the old, such as Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency with contemporary. Living close to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, and being of Hispanic heritage, I love cooking Mexican food, and love to share my authentic recipes. Though I live in Florida, my heart is in the desert southwest, and hope that my family and I will return there very soon…keep your fingers crossed that my prayers are answered SOON!!!
