I am ecstatic to be welcoming in the weekend. It's been one of those weeks where I am just happy to have survived. With all of the anxiety inducing exams that I had to take I think that I deserve to party like it's 1999 (which I thoroughly plan to do). If you're feeling stressed out this week, then this post is for you. Today I want to highlight three thing you can make, bake, and buy to take care of yourself this weekend.
Make: Although I look absurdly ridiculous anytime I put one on I absolutely love face masks. They make me feel relaxed and pampered. I've never been to a spa to get a face mask. I'm sure it's nice, but I think I'll save some cash and stick with the homemade recipes I have found. I don't know the science behind the ingredients in face masks, but I do know they feel nice and that's all that matters. My all time favorite is an oatmeal face mask. Take fifteen minutes for yourself this weekend. You deserve it.
Bake: I stumbled upon this recipe during one of my Pinterest breaks this week and immediately added it to my list of recipes to try. Few meals can be extraordinarily delicious and quick, but this 20-minute lemon pesto penne seems to promise both. I have yet to try it, but that shouldn't stop you! Perfect spring-time dinner with minimal effort (I'm in!). Feel like you're treating yourself without even breaking a sweat.
Buy: These 5" inseam Old Navy shorts are calling your name. Being a penny-pinching college student I have found I now have an Old Navy obsession. I purchased two pairs of these at the beginning of the week and am already dying for more. These are the perfect length and come in a variety of colors. Depending on the color you choose the price ranges from $15-$22 online. That is a steal. Seriously, just get them.
Have a great rest of your Friday and don't forget to treat yo' self. (Parks and Rec reference alert.)
