Here are some suggestions of how to start getting back to it.

Self-Care

I’m sitting at home right now catching up on emails and my to do list for tomorrow. I check my email quickly and notice the subject line on the email reads: Need some self-care? We got you. Yes Ulta, I could use some self-care. Perhaps not the kind that you can provide me with right now because let’s face it, the last thing I care about is how this lipstick is more early spring than late spring. Instead I’m looking for the self-care that makes me feel good during this pandemic we are currently going through. I thought I’d assemble a couple of quick ideas that can make us all feel human again.

The Final Countdown

It seems as though summer has hit its peak. Parents are ready for school to start, and kids are getting bored doing the same thing day in and day out.

Well, we scratched our heads and came up with some good ideas keeping the cost down and the fun at a max!
