I had the best time with my childhood girlfriends last weekend.  We each take turns planning a long weekend getaway, and this year it was my turn.  I invited them to come and spend time at my home doing local experiences.  If you want to see all the fun photos from the weekend, either visit Facebook or Instagram where I posted pics and be sure to follow me so you won’t miss out on my fun!

The highlight for me was our private poolside restorative yoga session with Stephanie Mamantov (you can find her here on Facebook).  She teaches private and group lessons around Fort Worth and in her home studio in Joshua.  I met her through classes she teaches at Fitness Connection. She brought all the equipment and all we had to do was be open to the healing properties of yoga.  She concluded the session with meditation.

It was so relaxing being outside hearing the sound of the birds, the water and the crackling fireplace.  Truly a treat to start our day!

Stephanie also shared a recipe for an easy, homemade Honey, Apple Cider Vinegar and Sugar Facial Scrub for Winter:


3 TBL raw honey

1 tsp raw apple cider vinegar

2 TBL raw organic sugar

Combine ingredients and apply to clean skin.  Leave on skin for 1-2 minutes before removing with a warm, damp wash cloth.  Can be used to exfoliate skin bi-weekly.  Enjoy this decadent and economical treatment!
