Nice Spa Experience💅🏽

Had a lovely experience going for a manicure in my neighborhood at the Kate Burton Spa. Walked in with laryngitis and she quickly made me a heavenly hot cup of green tea with honey. With a calming voice in a very serene environment, I received just the type of service I needed in which she…

Throat Soothers

Woke up this morning with laryngitis for which I added turmeric (reduces inflammation) in soup (warm liquids to soothe/prevent dryness) and massaged a homemade eucalyptus oil rub on my throat and chest. So nice to have had these ingredients on hand. Need my voice back soon 🤦‍♀️Details below:

The menu listed an endless…
