Indulge in a Bit of Beauty


Who has the time and money for an entire spa day? Busy moms deserve at least a little treat, such as a monthly manicure or a 15-minute chair massage.

One working mother says: "Working moms have a tendency to feel guilty because they either have to or want to work outside of the home. They feel guilty spending time away from their children and therefore have a more difficult time taking time for themselves during nights and weekends. This is where the lunch-hour of beauty comes in: Get yourself down to your favorite salon during lunchtime for whatever treatments you can fit in and afford from time to time."
