I kicked off summer with a fun night with my BFF in Tribeca. We caught up over Smirnoff LIGHT LEMON MOJITOS (only 119 calories thank you very much) while indulging in all sorts of girly fun at TENOVERTEN salon.
When we walked in we grabbed yummy drinks--so colorful and begging for a party. (TREND ALERT: Colorful straws made these a splash more festive--try them at your next party). Then we had our makeup done and had an incredible tarot card reading. Smirnoff brought Sasha Graham to read the cards. Guess what? Smooth sailing ahead for me. The cards said I love my work and my home life is bringing me joy. Agree on all parts. I especially appreciated my Eight of Pentacles Tarot Card. In a nutshell, I should "Allow myself to experience my prudence and wisdom." Apparently my "training has brought both discipline and skill" sounds about right. This is what my friend was dealt:
She's on a twistier path. Who doesn't love a good reading! Then we were treated to manis and pedis. We gossiped and reconnected and left all our responsibilities (two husbands and four kids) behind for a bit. As two busy working moms, it's often hard to make time to nurture our friendships. Other things always pop up. Summer should be about play.
My advice? Make time for play this summer. Set up a monthly "playdate" with a pal. Maybe cocktails and a mani? Or for the budget version opt for a night in with netflix (chick flick of course) and DIY those toes. Might I suggest yellow? Don't forget to treat yourselves to a light refreshing cocktail too.
Thank you so much to Smirnoff for dreaming up the Stir Up Your Summer event. Now I'm inspired to mix up cocktails and make time for my friends this summer. No excuses. Just good times.
