Can you believe we're already half way through February? Between starting a new job, working outside the home, and planning a wedding, 2018 has been a blur so far. And to top it all off, G and I just celebrating my birthday / Valentine's Day / our 5-year anniversary—yes, they all fall within two days of each other. My life has been packed full of commuting, work obligations, birthday parties, meeting with vendors, and (yay!) wedding dress shopping.
Pampering myself in little ways has helped keep me sane this winter.
1. Head to the salon.
I'd put it off too long, but I finally got myself in for a fresh cut and color. (I know it's time for a salon appointment when I start wearing my hair in a bun everyday... and that had been going on for weeks.) There's just something so relaxing about having someone else color, wash, cut, and style your hair. And it's a such a refreshing feeling to look in the mirror and have a new 'do.
2. Upgrade your shower/bath routine.
I really miss the gorgeous, antique claw-foot bathtub I had in my apartment four years ago. Best baths ever. And while I no longer have that luxury, that's no excuse not to make the most of my showers. I've made it a point to slow down and enjoy showers rather than rush around in the morning or take quickies at night. Mrs. Meyers helps me do just that.
I've been using Mrs. Meyer's honeysuckle body wash, hand lotion, and bar soap for about a year now. I love the fragrance, especially in the winter. It's reminiscent of summer afternoons and a lovely little bottle of fancy honeysuckle perfume my grandma gave me when I was little. Now, Mrs. Meyer's has rolled out the body lotion. I'm delighted—and so is my dry, flaky winter skin, which now feels soft and smells like summertime.

3. Swipe on some bright lipstick.
I've been experimenting with different reds and berries lately to see which lip color I want to wear on my wedding day. I'd forgotten how just a little bit of bold lipstick can boost your confidence and make you feel more pulled together.
(Pssst! Grove carries some fabulous Burt's Bees gloss lip crayons. Pacific Coast is one of my go-to colors.)
There you have it: salon, smell-good shower, and some bright lips... my three favorite ways to feel like a lady amid frigid Iowa winters and hectic schedules.
