What Do You Do Once A Week?




My fun TIKKR watch (gifted to all of us attending the recent blogger’s conference) tells me that it is Sunday and time to get ready for the week ahead! I do have a few little rituals that I do every week to look and feel fabulous (you must shake out your hair and flutter your eyelashes when you write lines like that last one!). Later today, I will





 



1. Give myself a pedicure. There is no extra money right now for the salon…so, I pull out the clippers, file, Pedi Egg, and select a favorite nail polish…I still am a sucker for OPI…it just goes on the best. Usually, in the summer when I can be found predominantly in sandals, I will also spend time with a great foot soak!





2. Once in the shower, I will do a once a week mild microdermabrasion technique on my face. The Olay version stretches over about six to eight weeks and I use it on my face and neck! It makes a huge difference to keep wrinkles from showing and my face always tingles while conducting a tribal happy dance!




3. I also give my hair a once a week heavy conditioning treatment. As I have written before, I have to tame the beast and this treatment is a big part of keeping things looking smooth and shiny!!


4. Finally, I try to spend a little time planning the weekly outfits or at least the one for the next day! This has become a bigger deal since I started blogging…especially if I want an editorial theme to exist. I confess I wing it probably more than I should. It also is important for me to do this if I want to save time in the mornings…that is the biggest motivation!








I think my editorial theme this month is going to be CELEBRATIONS! I want to look for something to celebrate with every post!




Do any of you have a weekly ritual you would like to share?? Bring it on, ladies!  I hope we can learn new ideas from each other.

  1. My weekly ritual is more work-related, although this morning I rubbed down my atrocious winter feet with hand balm and am very pleased with the results. Like you, blogging has helped my weekly wardrobe planning. Have a good week.

  2. Oh, I am SO overdue for a pedicure! I love them, but just haven't felt able to commit the time. The longer I wait.... the harder it will be! My God, I don't think I have a weekly ritual. Unless you count exercise. I'm a bit of a "weekend warrior," it appears.

    And yes. Olay rocks.

  3. I polish my face every day with a sponge from the Body Shop it stays in my shower. It may just be me but I am sure my face has a glow

  4. My guy makes me bacon and pancake or BLT's or sausage biscuits on Sunday morning. He is the best.

  5. I treated myself to a pedicure today, it was great! Sunday is my day for leisurely exercise and batch cooking!

  6. Since I only work part time I'm not on a strict weekly schedule....I do 'it' when I am in the mood and have time. I should have had a pedicure by now, but it's still too cold for sandals this year.

  7. Your weekend rituals sound pretty good... I definitely need to give myself a manicure, and get back into the habit to planning outfits for the week ahead.

  9. I love the colors you featured from OPI, they are exactly what I would pick. You've inspired me to do a pedicure today. Weekly rituals mostly include planning my week on Sunday nights so I don't forget anything.

  10. Sounds like you had a great day of pampering! I love the celebration theme - I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  11. I'm with you on the OPI and the L'Oreal conditioner. Will have to check out that particular Olay product. I use many of their products already.

  12. I'm going to try that L'Oreal conditioner.

    In my book you don't need to apologize for doing your own nails. The pedicure I give myself at home is superior and safer than any I've ever paid for, plus I don't have to tip.
