Relaxing at Home with a DIY Spa Treatment

Click here to find out how to create a DIY Steam Facial at home!

I posted a DIY Spa video three years ago and to-date, this particular YouTube video has been my most popular out of all my 100+ videos. This video talks about how to create your own spa-like experience at home with the use of very simple things that you should already have. This DIY has inspired many to stop spending hundreds of dollars each year at the spa. If you're starting out the New Year with a spending purge, this is one great way to start! 

We all know that so many people are pressed for time and for caring for oneself.  I'm guilty of that too, and sometimes, it's just so great to be able to take a little time for yourself and relax. For me, the ultimate relaxation is to soak in a hot bath with some bubbles, light some candles, and to just lay back and meditate. Baths, unfortunately, aren't always practical for one reason or another, so a steam facial has a lot of the same benefits though.

I plan on providing more spa-like tips and tricks on my SimplyBellezza.com blog and on my YouTube channel. Go subscribe to keep up-to-date. It's free! 

Relaxing on my lunch break,

Sacred Storytelling

Over the past year, I've begun to uncover my purpose in this life - what am I here for and how do I find fulfillment in that purpose? Is it ongoing or is it a one-time goal that I will eventually achieve? What then if that is the case?
There are so many questions to ponder and endless thoughts about the what-ifs and hypothetical future I could potentially have, based on the notion that I knew exactly what my purpose was, that is.
I've known that I'm meant to be a storyteller - that I am a writer and creator, but that alone didn't resonate with me or drive me to work towards any one goal of actually being those things. I already was those things, but there wasn't a sense of fulfillment from bestowing upon myself these titles. Works have been created, but to no real purpose or reason. The question is how to make this state of being something more tangible...more real.
It wasn't until a couple of weeks ago when I read an article about Reese Witherspoon who spok…

A Spring in My Steps

For those of you who have followed me for some time, you must know by now that one of my favorite spots here in Seattle is Green Lake. There's something so serene in walking the almost-three mile path around the lake - all while never even leaving the city. It's a short drive away and I find myself longing for a visit when I think only of its lush natural scenery and everything you could want in a park.
I went to Green Lake earlier in the day than normal and spotted these lovely little crocuses, reaching their aubergine-veined petals through the soil. I see them every year scattered about the city, but something about how they always reach for the sky makes them so relatable. 
Starting my walk, I noticed the eerie sky and how white it was with overcast - there were crows cawing and screeching from all over, fields and branches full of birds. My assumption is that after all the earthworms were about and crows were swarming to get a shot at their evening meal. 
Concluding my wa…

Blossoms & Light : A Pastel Photoshoot

How glorious are the delicate blossoms that sprout in the springtime? It is my most favorite thing about the arrival of springtime - the little pops of pink and white littering residential roads with tiny pastel petals after a gusty wind flow. 
A few weeks ago, inspiration sprung up at me while admiring the poppy pink trees on a drive through a windy country road. I was on my way to visit my sister with my DSLR camera in tow. Our plan was for me to practice portrait shots using my new 50 mm 1.8 f/s lens with her as my subject, and since I was still an hour and a half away, I called Stephie and asked if she knew of any blossoming cherry trees nearby for a chance of scenery. She didn't.
When I arrived, we drove around with our sights set upon finding the perfect setting. We found it serendipitously - in an almost-empty field at the local community college. It was perfect! A single tree with downy white petals bubbling around its dark branches, surrounded by emerald green grass and …
