Every time I travel, I take sheet masks with me because my skin HATES flying. And every time, they stay in my suitcase. It’s not because I don’t have the time to sit and wear it – because let’s be real, I probably found time to watch at least an episode of SVU on Netflix.

For my first Self Care Sunday, since I would be traveling, it was the perfect opportunity to follow up on something that I’ve always had the intention of doing.

Instead of just reaching into my normal sheet mask stash, I went to Ulta and bought this adorable otter one – perfect for the beach right?

Sunday morning, while the rest of my family was either out fishing, running, or watching TV – I went out on the deck and enjoyed my sheet mask and this view.

I only sat there for about 10 minutes, because I started melting. (South Texas in late summer, y’all!) But it felt AMAZING to take that time for myself and my skin!

As I mentioned before, each week I will be giving away two prizes as part of Self Care September. This week’s Instagram prize is a $50 gift card sponsored by Claudia from Oh So Pretty Planner. Post anything related to self care September using the hashtag #planwithlakenSCS on Instagram and I will pick a winner on Saturday 9/8.








Good Luck & Thank You Claudia!
