A Night At the Museum – The Oscar De La Renta Exhibit @The De Young Museum SF

Last Friday Night my husband and I had our date night at the De Young Museum in San Francisco. Entrance fee was free, and tickets for the Oscar De La Renta Exhibit were only $20 that night (Regularly $30 for adults, $15 for children). It was the first time I’ve actually ever seen the designer’s dresses and I was blown away. Made the mannequins look goooooood! These photos do not do it justice. Fashion is a trend, Style is within a person. -Oscar De La Renta My role as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best – Oscar De La Renta We spent most of our time at the Oscar De La Renta exhibit, but I hope to check out the other exhibits again some time. What’s your favorite exhibit at the De Young?

#365daysofselfcare Day 19: Reach out to someone

“We all need somebody to lean on” Sometimes the best things you can do is to ask for and accept help. This one’s a tough one for me. But like anything else, it just takes getting use to the more you do it. Asking for help can empower you to either take care of yourself or free you up to do something else. It also helps build community. Likewise, another suggestion is to reach out and text someone to see how they’re doing, or to say something affirming to them. Again, it opens up the opportunity to build community and a good support system.  All it takes is one text or phone call.

#365daysofselfcare Day 17: Have a picnic in your living room

Had to cancel your date night? Can’t find someone to watch your kid for date night? Too tired to go out? Have a picnic in your own living room after the kid’s are asleep. It was my husband’s idea, not mine, including the bottle of whiskey or scotch for staging purposes only!

#365daysofselfcare Day 16: Take care of your skin

Cold weather, dry climates, heaters, colds, scarves are all headed our way. And it really does a number on your skin. Keep your skin moisturized says every dermatologist on the planet. Make the extra effort this winter – your skin will thank you for it. And don’t forget to hydrate with drinking water too! I’d do this every day/night! I use an organic product: Eminence. Tried the cheap drug store brands and one high end brand in the past, but this works well. It’s a little pricey but a little goes a long way. By my age, its good to invest in some good skin care (if you care about that sort of thing).

#365daysofselfcare Day 15: Vick’s Vapo Rub

I’ve been sick this week with a cold and a cough (got it from O). So it’s a Vick’s Vapo Rub kind of night. Being sick forces you to practice a little self-care. Vick’s really helped O with his coughing at night too. Better than forcing cough syrup on him!

#365daysofselfcare Day 14: Simplify

Today I had an epiphany: Life gets harder the more we pile on and desire. Living more simply cuts out the excess freeing you to put more time, energy and money to the things that are most important and essential to you. Do you know what those things are?   Check out more on my Instagram account @eatsleepplayblog  or join the challenge with the hashtag #365daysofselfcare. I usually post there first!
