Today I have abandoned my stylish ways and opted for a plush robe matched with cushy slippers.
This was not what was supposed to happen today. Not at all. But, nevertheless, I have succumbed to a day off.
And it has been wonderful.
I planned to wake up [relatively] early and go to church, but, alas, I overslept. Once I realized I had overslept, I felt there was no reason to rush out of bed. So, I snuggled my puppy June in bed, while the hubby was stuck working a Sunday. Poor Caleb.
Once I did get out of bed, I showered and put on my wonderfully comfy robe. I had intended to get some Christmas shopping and errands done, but I have not been able to pry myself from the soft fabric of my favorite robe. How productive of me.
I've been on the go a lot this past week, with finishing up school, hosting a Christmas party, and whatnot, so I figure I deserve a day off.
In the spirit of robe-lounging, though, I offer you a wonderful pumpkin facial recipe. Have you ever made a pumpkin-infused goody and discovered that you only need 12 ounces of the 15 ounce pumpkin can? This facial offers the perfect solution to prevent food waste, and I promise your skin will love it.
Mix the following ingredients together:
a few tablespoons of pumpkin (this does not have to be exact - just whatever is leftover or readily available)
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of plain yogurt
1-2 teaspoons of brown sugar (you make the call)
Apply to face, and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Resist licking off, rinse face, and pat dry. It's that easy.
Pumpkin is full of antioxidants, and the edible ingredients mean this facial is great for your face and your taste buds. Feel free to gobble down any remaining mixture as if it were cake batter.
