CVS: Your Local Spa
I was feeling a little down the other day and aggravated in general. The next morning I found myself with an hour to spare. I should have spent that time at the gym but instead, I pulled into my local CVS for some seemingly necessary item. I’m not sure I ever purchased said item but I sure got what I needed by the time I came out.
Who knew that CVS could be the “spa” in my backyard I needed that morning. I picked up a basket and decided to take a walk down each aisle to make sure I wouldn’t miss anything that I might need. First stop, makeup! Mind you now, I am completely on my own. Neither my usual helper or my trusty assistant are there to offer advise or distraction. I wondered if I would be able to select what I needed without all this help. As it turns out, I was able to choose quite a bit. In fact, the spa at CVS would run me about $1 per minute that day. The same price as a massage.
I picked out several new nail polish colors, some eye shadow, liner, and foamy facial cleaner that promised gorgeous skin. This was turning out to be a very successful visit. My only challenge would be figuring out how to apply the makeup or having someplace to wear it. I could work out those details later and was feeling better already.
Located at the end of the makeup aisle are the “Shoebox” greeting cards. I love Shoebox humor. That “tiny little division of Hallmark” packs a big punch line. I started reading the cards from birthday to get well and everything in between. By the time I was a few cards in, I was laughing out loud. I bought several. Some I would mail that day and some I would tuck away for upcoming birthdays; be forewarned!
By the time my hour was up, I was feeling relaxed and recharged. I had laughed out loud and I had goodies in my shopping bag that I could enjoy later while looking forward to a fabulous night out on the town all dolled up with my husband. I highly recommend this “spa” to anyone in need of a lift. Prices and hours may vary but results will be good.
