The holiday season is a wild and woolly one, whether you work in the food industry (have you stopped by our Holiday Market yet?) or whether you are a cook and an eater. So this week, we asked the team to tell us, inspire us, and encourage us: How are you treating yourself this wild and crazy holiday season? Massages? Mimosas? Fine leather goods? Here's what they said—now get out there and relax.
Michael: The other night I poured amaro over vanilla gelato. Because I'm worth it.
Jackie: Pedicure for tired feet. Exercise for the body and soul. Wine for a tired mind and because it's delicious.
Gabi: All of the candles, mani-pedis, Champagne Saturdays, reading comic books and Sherlock Holmes, turning off all devices, funk and soul on heavy rotation, pizza with bae.
Micki: Being okay with coming home and hanging out in front of the TV for a bit. Just started re-watching Parks & Rec, which is helping. Usually accompanied by a cup of hot cocoa or chai before or after a small glass of bourbon.
Taylor: I splurged on a pair of silk pants I've been eying (they finally went on sale) that look like pajamas. I might wear them as pajamas.
Merrill: I'm trying to take a bath (with candles) most nights—no matter how late or how short.
Catherine: Buffalo wings. Baths. Naps.
Sarah: Using the Clarisonic.
Leandra: Grilled cheese and Gilmore Girls.
Jojo: Hopping on the Hawkins candle train... specifically the Hudson scent. Plus red wine. Plus the Downton Abbey soundtrack if I'm feeling especially emo. And on a daily basis? Kitty-cat snuggle time.
