Fresh Adventure: You Deserve a Vacation from Addiction

Fresh Adventure: You Deserve a Vacation from Addiction

Have you heard the saying, “Put on your own oxygen mask first”?

If you’ve been on an airplane, you have! It’s counter-intuitive to help yourself before your children but the truth is, we cannot help anyone until we help ourselves. If Mommy is laying in the aisle, who will help the kiddos? It’s the same in addiction. Put on your own oxygen mask first!

Fresh Face: Best Face Forward! A Five Minute Refresher

When I get really depressed or upset about something, certain things that are important to me completely lose priority. One of those things is washing my face before I go to bed. It’s very rare that I succumb to my inner-laziness and rebel against my self-made rules. I hate waking up with yesterday’s makeup and goo still on my face.
