Fighting Pretty at home all day, every day.
Pamper yourself amid COVID-19 - you deserve it!
Since we've been on lockdown, most days I don't shower until mid-afternoon, and rarely brush my teeth before 2pm. I'm sipping coffee from about 9-noon and on weekends, start a myriad of projects from vacuuming, organizing and working on a puzzle.
Granted, I just moved to a new house so there's plenty to do. The good thing is, it keeps me from watching the news, but at the end of the day, like you, I'm scared.
I'm scared for myself, my loved ones and for all of the women (and men) battling cancer. I'm scared for the medical professionals, small businesses and Fighting Pretty, the non-profit organization. Can we all come back from this? The answer is - we have to. We will fight, damnit! Just like we fight through cancer. Just like we fight through every day looking in the mirror and reminding ourselves that we are strong, bad-a** women who appreciate every day.
Sometimes, ignorance is bliss. I know enough to cover my face when I'm in public and stay home. But for those of you in active treatment, who can't stay home, and those of us in general who can, I wanted to share a few things to do to help you feel strong and beautiful:
Some of these shows are old, some are new, but here are a few of my favorites:
Ladies, just because you are home, doesn't mean you can't feel like you're at a spa!
Light some candles, play some Norah Jones and do some of these things:
Have date night at home.
Get dressed up. Put earrings on. Bright lipstick. If you live alone, FaceTime with a friend or family member and have a glass of wine, cocktail or mock-tail!
If you have a partner, tell them to get dressed up too! Set the table, play music, light candles and designate a specific time to "go out to dinner." Walk out the front door, walk around to the back and let yourself in! Dinner and drinks are served (by you of course, but who cares!).
Just know, we are in this together! We are here to listen, to vent, to cry - head on over to our Fighting Pretty through Facebook group and join others just like you who are truly Fighting Pretty!
