Just after completing a 30-day self-love journey where I made a deliberate effort to love and prioritize myself a bit each day, I received the most perfectly timed invitation to attend a “Love Yourself Portrait and Beauty Celebration” from photographer, artist, and owner of Lusicovi Creative, Elise Rorick. Mr. O&O and I have a stunning collage in our dining room from a Charles Dickens themed Christmas photo shoot she did for us a few years ago, so already knowing how talented she is, I was thrilled to have the chance to pose for this #loveyourself themed shoot.
The event included several local vendors offering a variety of self-care themed items, my favorites being the complimentary hand massages from Hillside Avenue Spa & Salon, a fun just-because flower arrangement I took home from Southern Sky Design, and some heavenly-smelling tea I picked up for a friend from Lesley Saligone Wellness.
But the highlight of the day was a festive photo booth where you could color a heart and write one thing you love about yourself to hold in your photos in exchange for amazing, complimentary, edited pictures from the lovely Lusicovi Creative. What a perfect way to show yourself some love! I even got to fulfill a secret goal of mine to wear a flower crown. Elise was tons of fun to work with and she is incredibly talented. If you are looking for a photographer, give Elise a call and mention this post for 15% off your booking fee.
This event was such a blessing! I loved spending an hour just enjoying some me-time surrounded by gorgeous flowers while quietly coloring. As an extrovert, I of course also enjoyed chatting with the local small businesses about their passions and mission to promote self-care, but it was a great reminder to take time for myself. Even Jesus withdrew from the crowded world to pray and recharge in solitude, so I’m thinking that this self-care stuff is totally legit! Thanks Elise for putting on this awesome event at the most perfect time. Can’t wait for next year!
