It’s August, ladies and gentlemen. The last hurrah before the school year begins. With or without school-age children in the house, we still seem to get that back-to-school feeling! Hopefully, we can experience it without butterflies and without a care in the world about being cool … since we know we are cool already!
August tends to be bittersweet as we soak up the last few weeks of summer hoopla before it’s back to business. But there’s no reason why you can’t participate in the back-to-school nostalgia, too. That’s why August is the perfect time to invest in activities that are important to you. So, go ahead! Update your resume for a new job, organize those closets, or splurge on some stylish staples for your wardrobe. And don’t forget to make a stop to see us for the most important investment of all — YOU!

The best product to follow your face wash is a toner. We were amazed to find out the number of clients who didn’t use a face toner during their routine. Toner helps to minimize pores, balance your skin’s ph and acts as an extra cleanser after removing makeup. We highly encourage using a toner every day and would love to recommend a few good brands to you. Just give us a call or ask us about it the next time you come in!
“Baby, you’re like lightning in a bottle.” Keep talking, BORNS. This song was released a few years ago, but it still reigns on top of the “can’t get enough” playlist. Plus, if you like it, check out his newer stuff.
Yes, we’ve probably watched this show several times through but it’s a classic! Here’s a fun game to play when you need a break at work. Try and match all the characters from the show to people in your office or workplace. You won’t be able to do it without cracking up!
Productivity requires action. When something is written on a list, there is no action associated with it. On your calendar, it becomes a scheduled activity. Instead of writing it on a long, daunting list, consider the best time to complete that task and block off the minutes to get it done!
Sending those high school graduates off to college? We know … the first year can be mind-boggling for both students and parents. After all, transitioning to college requires a tremendous amount of preparation, adaptation and discipline. Students are on their own for the first time, and parents are forced to step back and let them make their own mistakes. But, there has to be a way to survive freshman year, right?
You bet there is! The key is maintaining balance in everything … work, play, sleep and even food! Read on to discover tips for a successful first year of college.
Get your Zzzzz’s We all know the importance of sleep for optimal health. Proper sleep makes you look and feel better. It also heightens performance levels. So skip the school-night partying, turn off the TV and smartphone, and get a full night’s sleep.
Exercise Coupled with appropriate amounts of sleep, exercise helps you look and feel great! It also fights stress and wards off disease. Simply take a 30-minute brisk walk each evening … it will even help minimize the dreaded Freshman 15!!
Eat healthy A big part of maintaining your health is making healthy food choices. Skip the pizza and opt for veggies, whole grains, fruit and lean protein.
Use on-campus support Disorganization, stress, time management, or tutoring — whatever your struggle, you’re not alone. Most universities provide counselors, study groups, tutoring and assistance with stress management. Take advantage of these resources.
Get involved on campus
Getting homesick is a common issue for first-year students. Consider joining one of the many student organizations available at your school such as fraternities and sororities or sports teams. You will meet new people and feel more connected to your school.
Prioritize your life Waiting until the last minute to write that essay or cram for a midterm won’t cut it in college. Buy a calendar, write your deadlines for assignments, studying, etc., and stick to it!
Most importantly, give it your all, be true to yourself … and call your mother! Good luck!
We love this recipe for school lunches and work, too. If you don’t want the pasta, simply take it out and make it into a sandwich! So versatile.
