Finding Time For Yourself
Get your serenity on and unwind.
Your teens are holding a car wash at the high school Saturday. The grandparents volunteered to take the younger children to a movie Sunday afternoon. Your tweens take tap on Wednesday evening. It's your time. Take it.
Each week, we will tell you about one great idea to give you a much-desered break,and make your life a little easier and more comfortable.
Today comes a suggestion about wrapping yourself in comfort.
Winter weariness is setting in. So many snow days! For any mom, these days are exhausting. While this is what we signed up for as mothers, it serves everyone to let mom have a special time, place, or thing that helps her restore her equilibrium.
One seemingly unconventional, yet uplifting solution to help mom handle the daily stresses with poise is a pashmina wrap. A pashmina wrap will fend off the cold, look stylish, and add color to monochromatic days. Granted, this is not a “get away from it all” escape, but it’s lux and luscious, and fantastically functional.
The cost of a pashmina can range pretty significantly. How do you decide? Know what you are getting and get the best you can afford. The term pashmina is used loosely, but there are distinctions between a pure and fake pashmina. Pashmina is a type of very fine cashmere that comes from the undercoat of high-altitude mountain goats. Read labels closely to know if it is 100 percent pashmina or a blended product (with silk, other type of wool, or synthetic materials).
Pashminas come in every color imaginable. It will become an indispensible part of your wardrobe. For an everyday look, wear it as a wrap with jeans; with a coat, twist and wrap and wear as a scarf; as a cozy blanket, curl up on the sofa and drape it over your legs.
