Have you ever been sitting with a facemask on for your #selfcare and thinking… is it working, am I doing it right? Jessica with Pretty Prints and Paper takes us beyond the facemask and reminds us self-care is so much more than indulging yourself. In what turns into a self-care detox session for Colleen, Jamie, and Stephanie you’ll be nodding your head in agreement and re-evaluating what you think you know about self-care.
Jessica is a bullet journal and hand lettering artist and you can follow her on Instagram at Pretty Prints and Paper.

Women are told we can have it all. or that we should have it all. In the planner world i this to look flawless and beautiful while we do it and somehow hold it together, it’s not reality. – Jessica
Selfcare is not a box you have to check off in your planner, it’s a pace that you live your life that is sustainable. It’s about discipline and being clear about your boundaries. – Jessica
Selfcare is not always indulgent, and self care doesn’t mean splurging on something. – Jessica
