spreading the "hoppiness" cheer

So I'm still out and about in the Arizona heat, missing my beautiful 'bu and all its glory! But I wanted to say that I hope everyone has a lovely Easter weekend! I mean it; so hop to it! :)

Oh, and in other happy and celebratory news, it's my one year anniversary at Sensaria! Woot woot! Haha. As silly as it may sound, I wanted to let anyone and everyone join in on my festivities by offering some give-aways!!! I haven't decided yet on how many drawings there will be, but I'm leaning toward three... here's what you have to do to be entered into a drawing for lovely possible prizes such as some bubble bath, aromatherapy, massage oil, foot scrub/lotion, etcetera (I haven't made my mind up yet...): leave a comment! That's right, as simple as that! BUT I thought it would be fun, with pampering in mind, to leave a comment sharing what your favorite pampering ritual is. Whether that be going to a spa and having a full facial, or a massage, or a pedicure; or at home with a nice long, relaxing, hot shower (my personal favorite) or personal foot soaks (or personal foot rubs from our hubs ;) !!! So whatever it may be, share your ideas, I'd love to hear them!

Speaking of pedicures, I had one with my mom the day I got here and now I have pretty little orange toes! And I've been working on Will's Easter "junk" and I'm pretty excited about it all. The little stuffed eggies look like vintage beach-balls, in egg shape... so yeah. I'll be finishing those projects up today hopefully, in addition to helping my brother make a shirt (yeah, we're a crafty family, boys included...). You better believe I'll have some pics for you from our trip here, including our mother-daughter piggies! I love coming home! :)

Oh, and one more thing. For anyone and everyone who is interested, I'm offering my clients, and all you blog buds, a 25% off any purchase made this month (just email me and we'll work it all out)! So happy, hoppy, April to me, to you, to everyone! Yay for Spring and the sense of renewal that comes with it! Breathe that does-you-good air girls and enjoy the season! Cheers!

  1. As silly as it sounds my favorite pampering is a long hot shower and a nice minty toothbrushing after. I know that there is nothing glam about brushing teeth and that I do it several times a day but there is notihng better than that totally clean, showered, brushed, put together feeling...mmmm...wonderful. It is crazy what becoming a mom can make you thankful for.

  2. My favorite thing is to get my hair cut and colored---which I just got done today! Wahoo! There is nothing better then having your hair feel healthy and looking good!

  3. My personal favorite pampering is new-found for me. I've been running since I was probably 14. I never had an exercise partner and am appreciating the opportunity of having not one, but two great running partners over the past four weeks! I love it! This is my new favorite pampering thing! I know it sounds weird that exercising would be a favorite pampering moment. But we get our exercise in, meditate during quiet moments, chat excitedly about husbands, kids, church, life, etc., and bond as friends. It's a great feeling and the best part is having the companionship of other women who experience what I do. It's mind clearing and rejuvenating for me which is definitely pampering!

  4. Oh! And I didn't even know you were in AZ. Are you in Mesa? If you are, we should get together!

  5. And one more thing. I forgot to tell you. My sister is doing a program or two or three through Clayton College... she'll be a Doctor of Natural Health with an emphasis in Herbology. I am wanting to do either the Doctor of Natural Health program or Doctor of Naturopathy SO BADLY but have to wait until my husband finishes grad school so I have more time! I'm dying to do the program!

  6. I guess my favorite form of pampering is to get into my pajamas and make some popcorn to eat while I watch a movie or something fun on T.V. I've never had a massage or facial before. Sounds intriguing though. :)

  7. Well this is fun! There's so many things I'd love to do though! One thing is to take a looong steamy hot shower (and actually shave my legs!), then sit and watch a major chick flick and paint my toe nails. Ooo but I love shopping as well. I've never had a real back message which I think would be amazing, but I have had a real facial and it was wonderful! Ooo and also get my hair cut...and colored too (Clarissa!!). I love doing all the major girly things!

  8. Toughy-since I don't get to pamper myself much at all. Although my wonderful husband allowed me to get my hair cut and high lighted this week and it was wonderful! I also love being able to take a long hot shower, a pedicure (I've only had 2 in my life) but I love it. Of course, who couldn't resist and nice back rub. I guess that's 4 things I like.
    I hope you have a wonderful and Happy Easter!!

    Massage is definately the best, plus my husband gives the best hand and foot rubs in the whole world. Just one touch and I feel renewed. Besides that I love a book, chocolate, and a rainstorm and noone home but me!

    (p.s. Beth, I love your blog and always read it. I have a very slow computer so I can't get the videos but I love Will's pictures. I tried to respond a couple of months ago but when it said it was secure I thought that meant that I couldn't use it. I'm not very computer savvy.)

  10. My favorite pamper thing to do is to take a hot bath. After that I love painting my toenails! I love my feet feeling/looking cute! Oh and Happy Easter!

  11. My favorite way to pamper myself has nothing to do with beauty products...I like to make myself a big dinner and watch a movie or TV. I do it often enough, but I love it!

  12. Is it too late to leave a comment?
    Pampering myself... Long shower, do my hair nice. I've always wanted a shoulder massage, but I've never had one. McKay tries, but it seems I have uncountably many knots in my shoulders!

  13. Besides a pedicure, massage, facial, movie, bubble bath, chocolate, etc--the best way to pamper myself is to fly you home with Will for a wonderful visit!! (I think that beats everyone else's response!)

  14. I love a long hot shower all by myself. And a bowl of ice cream.

  15. Okay...I've had to think on this. But first sorry I didn't get over to your house on Easter...Zack was going to have none of it, so we just headed home early. Please post pictures though!

    Okay favorite pampering...definitely a pedicure. But it has to be a good one which includes: a guy technician - there is one guy at OBI that I LOVE, the massage has to be perfect...not to rough, not to easy & it is better with a guy because their hands are stronger...I've had some pretty wimpy girls. Okay also, I need a good gossip magazine and a good messaging chair, flowers on my toes, sea salts and a Diet Coke with lemon - I haven't had one of those in a long time and I am missing it!!!

  16. Personally, I love getting my hair cut and colored just like Clarissa. Along with Pedicures and massages.

    Thanks for the note you left me the other day. I am starting to get back to reality...slowly but surely.

    My favorite pampering is a day at the spa....pedicure for sure and maybe a massage but lately I have just been getting into my jetted tub after Liv goes to bed to unwind! Love it.

  19. Pampering is when I get to sit and read a book in the tub and use gallons and gallons of HOT water.
