What are you doing to look after yourself today?
I’ll go first.
I’m currently drinking warm lemon water with my Bubbly Rose Love Candle lit( this fragrance is so relaxing) while wearing a facial mask. I’m spending more time on my skin and prioritizing self-care for my skin. After I take off my mask, I’m going to dance like no one is watching, even though my dog Larry is always watching and looking judgy.
If he could talk, I know he would tell me to sit down and do something constructive!
After my dance session, I’m going to the spa to sit in the sauna for 30 minutes. The sauna is the only thing I miss about the gym I used to belong to. However, I don’t miss the naked ladies and the crowded space.
Yes, there are facilities where women gather in all their naked glory while in the sauna, but this gym had signs that specifically stated, “clothes must be worn.” And not only did they ignore the sign, but a few naked ladies chose to do yoga in the sauna, and we all know how freeing yoga poses are. So yeah, there’s that!
I hope y’all have a fantastic Friday and you do something just for you. Not just today but often. Enjoy the life you have, and today tell someone you love them.
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

today…an interview at noon, may become an events guy, cause I don’t really need a new job, but, setting up and taking down race events, why not?…..then maybe an easy run…..
Yayyyyyyyy good luck Warren!!!! That sounds fantastic 💖
I brought some carrots to work lol 🐰
😂 Hey I love carrots and always down for good crunch
1. Love the office gif.
2. The imagery of the naked yoga in the sauna is a hard no for me.
3. It’s my Lent double. I made myself a healthy breakfast, took my dog for a walk before work, and straightened my hair/did my makeup extra nice to give my confidence a boost before this long shift on my feet.
4. When I am off in 8 hours from now, I am going to take a hot shower and use some lotion afterwards. Maybe do a foot scrub if my dogs are barking.
Have a great Friday! (And your dog does look like he is judging you)
Drinking lemon water with a candle lit? Sounds amazing to me! Even taking just small little moments for ourselves when we can makes such a difference. 🙂
Yessss Layla it’s the small things that make the biggest changes😍
The smell of this candle puts me in the best mood!
Great post, Belladonna. I am having a relaxing botanical soak this evening.💕
Thank you and that sounds like the perfect ending to a beautiful day! I hope you had a glass of wine💖
My pleasure, Belladonna. It was wonderful.💕
Earlier today I drank a glass of water with lemon juice in it, so I’m living large here self-care-wise. 😉
😂 my lemon water make me feel like I’m doing bug things for myself and if I put mint and cucumber in it then watch out! 😁
Your description of relaxing (first paragraph) is very likable. I think Larry should dance, too.
😊 Thank you! Larry is over my dance moves 😂
They did yoga naked in front of you and it didn’t occur to then they were disgusting? Ew.
They had ZERO shame!!!!! We even complained to management and they still did it 😫
It was disgusting!
I cannot believe the, I’ll just call it abnormal people in this world anymore. It’s just in the last several years people have gone nuts. That’s why I’m trying to stick to Christians to follow on here. I have had one helluva year with the nutjobs.
I’m with ya!!!! We are surrounded by some strange folks. I sure hop this year is your year and things turn around. I have had my fair share of nut jobs too!!!!
It sounds a truly delicious day of self care and self love. I can almost smell the rose candle and lemon water together to be so heavenly soothing. Oh the sauna imagery is not pretty lol.
I love this candle💖💖 And the ladies in the sauna have left me hating group saunas😭
I wrote my morning pages and then walked five miles. Those two things always make me feel great.
Relaxing candles, wearing a nutritivr mask, listening music, an special time for us sounds amazing. We need to have those kind of things, are blessings. Agree with you, we need to have modesty, cares about our body and soul. Thank’s for share dear Belladonna.
Have a lovely weekend!
Thank you beautiful!!!! Face masks, bubble baths and candles are things the soothe me and gets me ready the next day😍
You are welcome dear Belladonna
Agree with you. Enjoy it!
Nice time! 🙏😍
Guuurrrrrllll, I am laughing my behind off about Judge Larry! 🤣😜😂 Honey, I love the way you dedicate and incorporate those meaningful things during your “me” time. I not too long ago finished mowing the lawn and trimming some tree branches. I honestly enjoy yard work because I connect to the great outdoors and it is quite therapeutic. 🙏🏼 I feel grounded (no pun intended). But afterwards, girl my coconut Epsom Salts with baby oil and my other bathing accoutrements was the cherry on top! Yes!!!
Continue to have a “Self-Care” weekend! You can never do too much…or can you??? 🛁☕🪔💖🥂
No we can never have to much of that! Yard work is so calming to me to and ya feel so good when you look at your finished product 💖💖💖
Larry is always judging and looking at us like we are crazy! 😂😂
Larry needs a pipe and Sherlock Holmes hat. 🕵🏻♂️🕵🏻♂️🕵🏻♂️🕵🏻♂️ Imagine that in all of his shadiness! LOL 🤣 Only in your household Belladonna! 😂
😂😂😂😂 that sounds perfect for him! When we get on his nerves he’ll go upstairs and get in his bed for alone time 🤦🏽♀️😂
Girl no, not the finicky canine! Oh my gosh, Larry is a trip! I suppose that’s his “Bye Felicia” exit! 🤣😜😂
He is!!! 😂😂😂
I’ll be dancing like no one’s watching as well tonight. It makes me feel free, which is a great feeling! 💃🏽
Great feeling 😊💖🙌🏽
Oh lord, that video!!! 😂🤣
Happy weekend Belladonna
Same to you Sadje 💖💞
Your Friday self-care sounds nourishing and relaxing. 🥰 Thanks for the sauna/yoga visual. Really appreciate that. 😂
You’re welcome 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
If Larry looked at me like that, I would be motivated to get something done.
Right!!!! His looks say a lot!😁
I am going to do all that minus the sauna because that’s not available nearby post retirement when a I will have plenty of me time and that’s a promise to myself.
Nice!!!!!! I hope you had a great weekend 😍💖
Happy weekend, Belladonna 🎉🎉
Same to you KK🌸
Sometimes i think when people ignore signs like that, they might be just a tad bit horny
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 I had to read this twice
Wait, your dogs name is Larry! Bahaha! I’m also walking my Larry after dinner tonight! Then I’m soaking my aching limbs in the tub. Early to bed tonight! Sleep is my friend. Hugs, C
🤣🤣🤣🤣 yes!!! My husband named him. As soon as we saw him 5 year’s ago my husband said he looks like a Larry. 😂
I hope you well rested 💞💞
Nice. Taking care of self is very essential
Thank you! Yes it is, makes all the craziness in your world seem less crazy 💖
Welcome and yes💞
