At-Home Spa Day with Panasonic #Snowvember + GIVEAWAY

Busy moms, busy parents. What to give them? The gift of “me-time”. A gift certificate to a spa is always nice but then it’s over and done with in a couple of hours.

As a stay-at-home mama of a very active 21-month old, I sadly no longer get regular manis, but you can bet your life that my toesies still get the star treatment.
