The past few months have been busy and crazy all at the same time. I keep saying that I am putting myself at the top of the list, but it seems to only happen for a few days and then I’m off the taking care of me bandwagon. This is changing especially since The Don has given me what I have been desperately needing – a package of massages. It is hard to believe that it has been 3 months since I have had all the kinks worked out, but I realize I am in need of a few deep tissue massages. I need the ever present knots in my shoulders worked out, the dull lower back pain eased, and lots of self-care. I read that sitting in a desk all day actually crushes the body. If it’s true, I can feel it. I once read Ina Garten gets a massage every Sunday night. You go girl! I’m not there yet, but I think once a month will do just fine.
Years ago when the Clarins Institute was in Houston I had the privilege of having multiple massages there. The massages were great, but it was the Clarins Relax Body Oil that made them so memorable. This oil is luxurious. A combination of essential oils such as geranium and chamomile to relax and restore. I am happy to report that my first massage is Sunday. It’s early enough that I can do recon at store and pick up my Oscar viewing party essentials – French cheeses, olives, sun dried tomatoes, and other food accoutrements for the Oscars. I will have the massage therapist use this oil on me. I need all the relaxation I can get right now.
