Not only is Carole hosting Three on Thursday (as always) this week, she’s also provided an of-course-I’ll-steal-it prompt – luxuries.
First up – that’s the scene at my kitchen counter about 9am today … luxuries aplenty, for sure. But the real luxury for me is about the time (and the space) to do what I want. journaling. knitting. volunteering (that pile of notebooks way back there and the spreadsheet open on my laptop are for the women’s ministry at church – my first full meeting as Moderator is this Sunday … needless to say, I have a few to-do’s beforehand) … and top-of-mind right now – healing (that blue pump front center inflates and deflates the air cast in my boot).
I don’t have photos to illustrate these last two luxuries, but I’m sure you’ll get the picture:
Hair cut, color and styling products. I have a standing appointment with Carla my hairdresser every five weeks. It took me almost 50 years to learn to love my hair and I treat it well with help from Carla (cut, color and the occasional blow-out and keratin) and ColorProof. My current product routine includes daily conditioner and this awesome crème which doesn’t really need heat to work, and twice-weekly shampoo.
Good bras (and matching panties). Several times in my adult life I’ve had a bra-fitting and left with one or two custom-fitted and very expensive bras. Then this past January, I visited a local lingerie shop and was pleasantly surprised to learn that they carried my size – my real size, not the size that less well-stocked shops might try to sell me and not a “custom” size. I now own five (for about the price that two would’ve cost me before). But completely new to me is matching panties. Not gonna lie, they are expensive (I carefully hand wash everything I’ve bought from this shop!), but oh my, they make me feel pampered … and luxurious!
Do you have a favorite makes-me-feel pampered luxury?
Head on over to Carole’s to see more Three on Thursday lists!
