Besides rewarding myself with shopping sprees when I have accomplished a goal I also enjoy going to the spa to get a massage. 

The Red Door Spa is 15 minutes away from home so I decided to get a 50 minute massage. I usually hesitate spending $100 on a massage since they are inexpensive in Asia but I don't mind paying the price at all if the experience will be great and if service is good. 

As you enter you will see the hair and nail salon, you will then be greeted at the receiving area. The host will lead you to the locker room. Everything is well kept, clean and spacious. After changing to your robe you will be asked to fill out a form and the massage therapist will call you once the room is ready. I drank lemon water while waiting. I was finally called by my massage therapist. I was asked what kind of oil I want it was nice to hear there was unscented. not a big fan of I just got a massage smell. The bed had heat which made the experience more relaxing since half the time I am cold while getting a massage. I had a great time and this is by far my favorite spa. I will be checking out more spas in the coming month and this was a great start! 

I took several photos unfortunately I accidentally deleted them, waiting for hubby to get home hopefully he can recover them so for now I will be posting the one from my phone.

Personal: Excited for Spring

Recovering from a cold while writing this post. Hope all of you are having a lovely Friday night.
Who else is excited for Spring? I have not even done my spring cleaning, how about you? I feel like I have so much stuff that I can sell to Plato's Closet.

Fresh Market is my favorite place to get flowers

Beauty: Current Skincare

I have been dealing with acne for the past ten years,it sucks but over time I was able to learn which ingredients or food can aggravate my acne. I played the game of trial and error for pretty much every name brand out in the market even home remedy treatments and none seemed to work.

I then decided to do more research, changed my diet and tried to manage my stress level better these steps clearly made my skin happier. For the past months I have been religiously using these products and have seen improvement on my skin. Hopefully this will help any acne sufferers reading this.

Origins Checks and Balances face wash is perfect even for those who have sensitive skin. I love that it hydrates my skin too, it is part of my morning and night routine. Once a week I exfoliate using Origins Modern Friction. I then apply my Drunk Elephant Glycolic Night Serum, this targets hyper pigmentation. When I get cystic acne I use the Aesop Chamomile Anti Blemish Masque as a spot treatment. Lastly, I massage my face with Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation for extra moisture.
