Do Not Disturb: Pampering in Progress

We just had our 13th year Wedding Anniversary a week ago and I couldn't be more happier  with this guy who still gives me butterflies to my stomach everytime.  I know that sounds  cheesy but it's true and I am not shy to tell the world that.  He makes me smile and laugh all the time and I love him  very much for that!
 So on the day of our anniversary, I was very happy that he took a day off, I thought that was very sweet.  I have been bugging him to goo to the doctor and have his skin lump checked and he has been putting it off.  I am glad he  scheduled one on our anniversary so that's what he did in the morning.  The doctor was worried about the lump  growing on his skin so he was advised to go to a specialist.  He had his blood work done but we have yet to get the result.  I hope and pray that it's nothing serious.
I was gonna cook at home but he suggested that we check out this Thai and Japanese restaurant  called Papaya out in Robinson Mall area. So after his doctor's appointment, we head out to the place and it was already 2:30 at that time.  When we arrived,  they just closed and won't be opened  again  till an hour after.  Such a disappointment!  We drove all the way there but  only to find them close, ugh.  We did not wait  because our son had a football game later that day so we just went to another restaurant to eat.
These two kept us entertained while we waited for our food.
I was already stressed out because we didn't have much time to eat and drive back home for our son's game.  I tend to mess my hair when I am stressed out  and it is evident on the photo. 
Watching the  football game with  our son's team relaxed us a bit.  I am glad that I have this Beauty Box 5 to have a little me-time time after a  long day.  The August box contained Retinol spa treatment mask which was my favorite.  It  also includes  hair ties which is perfect for my long hair, an olive natural  beauty elixir that is perfect for my skin, a hot oil therapy treatment, and facial exfoliating brush.  I don't exfoliate that often but glad to have this brush.
So that night, I put the sign Do Not Disturb: Pampering in Progress on my door and I had my 10-20 minutes me-time pampering my skin and hair.
BeautyBox5 is really a good subscription if you want to try  5 different products every month.  I love trying new product especially for my hair and skin.  I hope they include some  type of new perfume  next month or lotion that I haven't tried yet.
