Bonjour beauties! It’s been a few weeks since I last posted, but I needed a break from posting on both blogs I run. I got completely worn out while completing the last issue of Sweet Violet Bride and since I hadn’t really taken a break in like three years, I figured it was time. My body was feeling the ramifications of stress and overwork so I mostly napped, read, made some jewelry in my studio and drank herbal tea. I’ve realized that I tend to feel guilty when not working every second…something our society has imbued on us I think. But hear me when I say, it is OK to take a break, to rest, to take the time to just be. It is necessary for both mental and physical health. If you’re a workaholic like me, I dare you to take an entire day for yourself sometime in the next month! : )
And speaking of the last issue of Sweet Violet Bride, if you haven’t seen it yet, you can flip through the digital issue here, or purchase a print copy here.
In issue 4 summer/fall 2015 I included three pages in the natural beauty section: best rose products, products to make your skin glow, and 8 red lip products for autumn. Enjoy!
