Showing Love by Taking Care of Your Health and Time For Yourself

Friday, April 14th, 2017

 “you deserve to be

completely found

in your surroundings

not lost within them”

-Rupi Kaur

There is no questioning the fact that keeping our health in check and taking time out of our busy lives to take care of ourselves physically and mentally are great ways to show ourselves some love. When we put effort into taking care of our bodies in various ways, we are sure to feel the best about ourselves.

Remember my friend, Ashley? We’re traveling together this week for our Spring Break, but, unfortunately, she was unable to get a pedicure with me this time! So I asked another friend, and we used our Campus Clipper coupon booklets to show ourselves some self-love! We used the below coupon to go to QQ Nails & Spa on 8th Avenue here in the city!

Both my friend and I are seniors graduating in less than two months, and, needless to say, we are feeling the stress and anxiety as we get closer to graduation. Not having jobs or apartments secured for afterward is simply frightening. That said, we both felt great when we took the time out of our schedules to get our nails done and simply relax. Clearing your mind and spending quality time either alone or with a good friend can be incredibly beneficial to your overall wellbeing.

If you love getting your nails done or any sort of spa treatment and you love student discounts just as much, then follow the above link for the coupon and try QQ for yourself! All of the staff was friendly, our nails turned out great, and we even got complimentary massages! We will definitely be returning to take advantage of the loyalty program!

If this isn’t really your thing, then find out what is and take the time to do what you love in order to take care of yourself.

Something else that is important is ensuring that you’re putting effort into trying to maintain good health by working out, eating nutritious foods, and visiting your doctors and health professionals regularly.

My roommates and I love to make smoothies, especially after a workout. Making ourselves go to the gym always helps us feel better afterwards and trying to eat foods that will feed our bodies in the best ways gives us the boosts we need each day! While I love a good smoothie and pack tons of different ingredients into that NutriBullet, I never forget to splurge and give into my cravings either-what’s life without a little fun!?

So, I encourage you to seek out more ways to continuously take care of your mental and physical health. Find what works for you and what helps you feel good and stick to it. If you can, use a coupon in the Campus Clipper booklet to make it that much better, too! Take the time to relax when life becomes too overwhelming, even if it is only a few deep breaths. When you begin to consciously take the time to put yourself first, you will find that you can love yourself more.

Spring is Abloom with Sunshine

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Spring is here!

The First Day of Spring, Tuesday, March 20th, was welcomed with a huge helping of sunshine and fresh air.  Spring kicked off earlier this year than in the past, meaning a brighter, warmer time for everyone this season.  I left for work this morning in a long sleeve floral print tee, tossing on a dark gray hoodie just in case, and was pleasantly surprised by the sudden shift in temperature in just a mere two days.  The weather dares me to slip into a pair of strappy sandals and rock the cat-eye sunglasses like a boss, a challenge I gracefully accept with the coming months of clear skies and occasional breezes.  I prepare to retire my favorite leather boots in favor of Rainbow flip flops, sandals that pile up in front of every Southern Californian’s door mat.

Quintessential Southern Californian

Biking around Central Park.  Watching the sun set over the East River.  Eating a not-quite-yet-defrosted ice cream sandwich in front of the Bethesda Fountain.  These are all the things I’ve done since winter has slyly slithered away with its tail tucked between its legs.  With the exception of the $4 ice cream brick, the newfound sun is promising.  The liberation from wooly socks is refreshing, as are the crisp breezes that send a chill through my fat stubby toes.  My sandals harbor no bitterness while they’ve been in storage for the winter months; in fact, I swear they hugged me when I took them out for a brisk walk to the market.  As confident as I felt, no pair of sandals is complete without a clean set of digits.

Vada Spa has got you covered with a full array of beauty services.  For beach babies looking to hit the waves, you can get a Brazilian or full leg wax special for just $18.  To top it off, get your toesies in shape with a pedicure for $18 as well; don’t forget that a hot shade of nail polish goes a long way on your toes!  These student savings are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays with your student ID.  Take advantage of the quickly-rising Spring heat with Campus Clipper student discounts today!

Go get your beauty on, girlfriend (or gentlemen.  Hey, even guys need a spa day)!

Spa Day

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

A new semester starts in twelve days at my college. I can hardly believe that the summer is already coming to a close, but I’m also excited to get started on a new year at school, where I will inevitably make new friends, start new projects, and continue to change intellectually and physically. I want to kick off the start of this new year positively, both feeling and looking good. During the summer, it was so hot outside that I sometimes sacrificed style just to stay comfortable. Now that school is starting, I can’t wait to once again be able to slip back into my regular fashion and beauty routine. With that in mind, there has never been a better time to splurge on a fabulous spa day.

At Eve in the West Village, the services include facials, waxing, tanning, and nail care. Go in for a quick freshening up before school starts, and receive 10% off with valid student ID, bring the coupon in and receive a $20 Honey Brazilian Wax or a $40 full body spray tan. These amazing student discounts will give you an extra boost of confidence to help you face your first day back at school all the more exciting. We have enough to be stressed out about with piles of homework, strict professors, and the constant distress over our budget. With the unbeatable student discounts at Eve, looking good and saving money are two less things to stress about in the already overwhelming life of a college student.

Hey there good lookin’

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Ever since I was a little girl my dad insisted that my life “wasn’t a fashion show”. Needless to say, as a severely out of touch single parent, he wasn’t understanding of his eccentric daughter’s overwhelming need to be on top of every fashion and beauty trend to hit the greater Seattle area. But as I grew up and moved to New York City, I realized that my dad was wrong: my life is a fashion show, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m just as obsessed with putting on a show now as I was then. Walking down the streets of New York is akin to strutting down a catwalk, but more importantly, New York’s focus on fashion and beauty is outlet for endless self expression. I love any excuse to express my creative inclinations through fashion, but I also know it’s difficult to do when you feel self conscious. Laser Cosmetica’s buy one get one free package deal will give you that extra kick of confidence you need to slip into your sexiest red dress. With laser hair removal, you can show off your soft, smooth legs and never have to worry about another nick or cut in the shower, or try the photo facial to refresh your skin for a boost of radiance. Laser Cosmestica also offers laser acne therapy to treat the skin’s most pesky ailment, making getting ready in the morning fun instead of stressful.

Sometimes the pressure to look good can be overwhelming, but it’s also one of the most exciting aspects of the city. Laser Cosmetica’s student discount takes your beauty concerns and makes them a thing of the past, so you can focus your future on being the stylish, confident, beautiful person, that like me, you always knew you could be.
