DIY Spa Inspired Gift with FREE printables!

spa inspired gift

I've teamed up with Lunchbox for this DIY spa inspired gift idea. There is nothing I like more than a little "me" time. It doesn't happen often, so when it does I totally indulge. I might not be able to get out of the house to go to the spa, but at least I can pamper myself at home. I have absolutely no problem spending a little extra to great skin care products that will give me healthier and more radiant skin. The beauty department is NOT an area where I'll skimp. My mom's birthday is right ... ...continue reading
