As we approach Valentine’s Day, so many people think about their “loved one,” … or lack thereof. For me, February is a time where I get to spread a little extra love to all the people I love—and let’s face it, there isn’t much that tops a relaxing day in with your best girlfriend. If it’s going to be cold and snowy outside (it is in Idaho, anyway), you may as well make the best of it by staying home and having a girls-day-in.
This past weekend, I had my bestie, Shaye (who was also one of my bridesmaids at my wedding in December), over for some grapefruit mocktails and at-home-pampering….to celebrate Yes to’s awesome new launch…Yes to Grapefruit!
How to make this mocktail:
- 6 parts pink grapefruit juice
- 2 parts soda water (we used Sprite instead)
- 2 grapefruit wedges
Directions: Just add all ingredients, a couple cubes of ice, stir, and garnish with a grapefruit. It was refreshing and just what we needed to kick off our pampering.
While sipping our Grapefruit Fizz’s, we headed to the bathroom to clean off our makeup with the NEW Yes to Grapefruit Brightening Facial Towelettes, so we could apply our soothing masks! We used the Yes to Cucumbers Calming Facial Mask. This was my first time ever using a mask, so Shaye had to show me how it was done. One of my favorite parts about the mask was the cooling and soothing sensation that I got when I put it on. I could actually feel it working.
While we let our masks dry, we goofed off in my bedroom—making funny faces, giggling, arm wrestling (it’s not just for guys), and totally hamming it up. We laughed so hard that our masks started cracking off.
After our masks, we were refreshed, had super-smooth faces, and just enjoyed spending some time together.
That’s what being girlfriends is all about. We get each other. Hanging out, enjoying each others company, being able to be totally candid and yourself with a person you trust and care about… that is what girlfriends are for. Girlfriends add something special—a little sparkle—to brighten your life. I’m so thankful for my bestie.
So, who’s your best girlfriend? Keep her in mind as you remember to check the Yes to Facebook page all through the month of February. Why?
