Never apologize for taking care ofyourself. If even God rested on the seventh day, why shouldn't a goddess like you? Why not...

Have Sunrise For Breakfast.
Ah, the glory of nature, with the wonder of fresh eggs, warm toast, and a cup of hot chocolate. What could make a summer moment more perfect? You’ve got all the time in the world so take some time out to be with the world. Share it with someone or savor it alone–either way, celebrate the world that is waking up right in front of you as the sky puts on its own designer fashion show.

Polish Your Polish.
Before it’s back to socks and school shoes, perfect your pedicure skills. Make friends with your pumice stone, foot soak, and peppermint scrub. Pampered feet put the finishing touches on your classy look. Nothing says “Princess” quite like it. Skip the pale pinks and platinums. The colors of the season are bold, bright, and confident–just like you!

Sit Still.
Sometimes we forget to really look, feel, taste, or listen. Do you know what a flower looks like up close? Or what you can hear when you’re really, really quiet? Look around and above you. Smell your food before you chomp it down. Feel the sweaty hair stuck to your neck. Slow down and breathe. When the world is rushing by again with all the things you have to do, you’ll have a treasure box of sensory delights for your mind to remember and rest upon.

Recharge A Relationship.
Next time your friends say they’re “up for whatever,” hold them to their word. With a little imagination and creativity, you’ll be surprised at all the things “whatever” could be. Skip the comforts of the beach, and suggest a total “roughin’ it” hiking trip. Sing corny camp songs by a bonfire, roast marshmallows, or snuggle under a blanket and count the stars.
