Well ladies (and gents), day light savings has officially arrived and you know what that means…one less hour of that precious beauty sleep we all crave. But have no fear, Im here to help! With every new day comes a whole new you, and what better way to start off this spring than with some uplifting spa treatments to get you relaxed, energized, and ready to take on the sun…and maybe that closest full of clothes you haven't cleaned out in five years. 
I have compiled a few of my favorite at home spa treatments (we love DIY!!) that will be sure to lift your spirits and rejuvenate your chakras, not to mention for almost no cost at all and they're totally organic!
