💕Self-care = Me Time - 3 Habits to Take Care of Myself

💓SELF-CARE: Relax/Revive/Rejuvenate 💓
Self-care is always important, especially in times like these. My medical circumstances pretty much dictate my daily life, so my self-care practices are a way to relax and be in the moment.
It’s a pleasurable escape from reality and a time to decompress.
More importantly, I feel like I'm in charge or control. Come along with me for these 3 meaningful moments:

Experimenting with makeup and learning new techniques allows me to give my brain a rest and nurture my creativity.
It’s also a great escape and break from my norm.
Not only is it transformative from an aesthetic standpoint, but there is nothing you can’t become and I have no limitations.

Fashion has always been a passion of mine and I love repurposing clothes or adding my own touch to outfits.  Picking out what to wear and getting ready can be just as fun as going out. Unfortunately with my medical conditions I haven’t been able to do so for years but that doesn’t stop me! Every week I make it a point to give my sweats and tees a rest and strut my stuff. (Coincidently it used to always wind up happening when I would get a 📦 and my boyfriend was convinced I had a crush on the delivery guy 🤦‍♀️)!

Using moisturizers, masks and lotions is something I’ve recently gotten more into. Caring for my skin and using products that make me feel good and are effective is a must. It’s a different way to take care of my body and helps to balance out the medical treatments and procedures.

    Makeup definitely can be therapeutic since it's like painting! Fashion is pretty fun, as well.

    You are such a beautiful young lady. I am so sorry that yoou have medical conditions that limit you. I think you are very gifted. You do so well writing interesting posts n reviews. I agree with you about experimenting with makeup. I can become anyone when I experiment. Facial cleansing to me is also so relaxing. Thanks so much for sharing Serena.

    I’m sorry you’re dealing with medical issues. It makes it scary in the time of pandemic. It looks as if you’ve found ways to deal however! I can count on one hand the number of times through this apocalypse that I’ve applied make-up. Do you have it obviously down to a science however. Your shadowing /highlights are spot on. Made me laugh when you said your boyfriend thinks you’re dressing up for the delivery peeps! Haha. Prayers go out for your medical issues, keep your head up you are beautiful!

  • Katie
