By Diana Denza--Whether you’re relaxing at home or touring Hawaii (hey, a girl can dream!), I hope you’re enjoying your extended Memorial Day weekend. I know that no matter how many extra weekend days you get, time is precious, so let’s get right down to the good (and not-so-good) stuff.

Speaking of celebrities and Instagram, Amy Schumer sent a message to her body-shaming Internet trolls while on vacation in Hawaii.

What does it mean to love your body? It means whatever you need it to mean.”

You deserve to take a break this weekend! Add these soothing essential oils to your self-care routine.
