It’s a new year! Which is why rewarding yourself for successfully making it into 2022 is important. Give yourself a theoretical pat on the back this month by indulging in some of life’s more simple, but oh-so-satisfying things. Who knows—maybe you’ll make a habit out of treating yourself more often.
Party of One – Take yourself on a dinner date
Enjoy your own company and take yourself on a solo dinner date! If you’ve never eaten alone, this might feel intimidating, but spending designated time to yourself at a restaurant with an intimate atmosphere, like Lisabella’s Bistro & Bar, just might be the best meal you’ve had in some time. 5009 TX-361, Port A
Flower Power – Buy yourself a bouquet of gorgeous stems
Freshen up your space with a bouquet of your favorite flowers. Bently’s Flower Truck sells florals by the stem out of a renovated 1958 Volkswagen bus. Check out its social media pages to find out where it’ll be next.
Skincare Splurge – Step up your beauty routine
Add a new product or two into your self-care routine and splurge on that moisturizer you’ve been dying to try. The Renewal Créme from Zo® Skin Health from Halcyon Med Spa is ready to hydrate and minimize redness. Your skin will thank you. 7002 S. Staples St. #107
Divine Desserts – Indulge in life’s sweeter things
Treating yourself with literal treats is a no-brainer. There’s no better way to indulge in local sweets than by picking up a little pink box from Bien Mérité and filling it with a variety of French pastries. 1336 S Staples St.
Retreat and Relax – Let someone else take care of your nails
You might not have the time for a full-on spa day, but treating yourself to a luxury manicure or pedicure is the next best thing. The Comma is a boutique spa offering a variety of packages that will leave you feeling relaxed and your nails looking flawless. 4819 Saratoga Blvd.
