a little bit indulgent...

After a month of yuckness and feeling like crap I decided to celebrate the fact that I am feeling healthy again by spoiling myself a little bit. A bunch of flowers, a gorgeous new candle and a booking for a hot stone massage and facial. It was just the treat I needed. Too often I skip the pampering in favor of more practical necessities like groceries and rent, but not today and I don't regret it. I was in and out of sleep as my therapist massaged my face and head, I think I almost started snoring at one point. The hot stone treatment was the perfect way to warm up on a wet and wintery afternoon.

The weather here in the Southwest is quite stormy with record rainfall. Definitely the best kind of weather to be rugged up indoors. Outside the rain is pouring and the wind is squalling, but my pretty little shack is warm and infused with the smell of the sweetest vanilla from my candle, and I am feeling relaxed and pampered and ready to settle in for some evening stitchery...

I have had a fantastic week sewing. I finished a handful of very special dresses including some bridesmaids dresses and I am preparing to cut my latest custom orders. I have been on a fabric buying rampage and I am expecting endless parcels over the coming weeks. Mail days are the best days... I will leave you with some pictures of my latest creations. I hope you are warm and safe wherever you may be. Bec xx

  6. Such gorgeous dresses! The pampering sounds so lovely, too! I always find an excuse why I shouldn't. (Kids.Rent.Food.Dog.Business expenses.) I hope I can throw caution to the wind one day soon, too!
