One of my fave things is being an accomplice to others while they’re playing hooky from work, taking a midday break for beauty if you will. No judgment here! I totally get it. The team you’re babysitting managing, your boss, the kids, and husband… life, basically. It’s a lotttttt. Sometimes a quick manicure doesn’t cut it, you need to up the ante to really decompress and reset.


And sometimes it needs to happen during the workday. 


Baby Friday aka Thursday is popular for those lunch breaks utilized for relaxation… or just cutting out early on a Friday to spa. So when I was invited to the Hotel Crescent Court’s spa for a little Cosmedix Blueberry Smoothie Peel it was a no brainer. Who turns down a Tuesday afternoon facial with Veuve Cliquot?!



After 6 years of living in Dallas, I had never set foot near the Crescent. Not even the same block, not even to eat at Shake Shack. I know, shame me.

After settling in and meeting the other bloggers we were treated to snacks, champagne, and blueberry smoothies before being given a tour of the spa facilities. The Crescent offers a luxe spa membership with a gorgeous rooftop pool, private pilates sessions, a fully equipped gym, and spa services with several other amenities. By the end of the year the spa will undergo a massive renovation–so keep an eye out Dallas!



To be honest I was pretty excited to finally be receiving a Cosmedix facial. I can’t remember when the brand first entered my radar, but if you’ve been thinking about trying it GO FOR IT.  A professional line combining the benefits of actives and natural ingredients rolled in one? A freakin’ dream. It never fails, they’re always my favorite.

The Cosmedix Blueberry Smoothie Peel smells absolutely amazing, has little bits of blueberry in it, and is so gentle you hardly notice it’s on your skin. FYI–peels don’t have to be uncomfortable for it to be working. That’s a total misconception.

Even with the Cosmedix peel being so gentle, it’s still quite effective. My skin looked amaze after, dewy perfection. Want a quick pick me up before a date night or a weekend getaway but don’t want to worry about sensitivity or fear of your face falling off? Blueberry Smoothie Peel, y’all.



You guys, I really love food. My inner fatty is hardcore, it’s why I workout… to eat. Why else would you sweat? Feeding me amazing fare is a sure-fire way to become my BFF, second to talking beauty with me all day.

After our midday beauty break, we crossed the hotel lobby and into Nobu. We snacked on shared plates, indulged in cocktails and rosé bubbles. The perfect opportunity to enjoy each others company and share in our spa experience!

My favorite part of the evening though? Being barefaced and glowy asf in the middle of a snazzy Dallas restaurant. I mean look at those pretty, dewy faces! We’re going to start a no-makeup revolution.
