Appreciate the beauty of the night sky by going on a stargazing session at your backyard!

Skip your trip to the nail technician this weekend! Instead, catch up with your closest friends and host a nail spa party. Provide a set of new or sterilized manicure-pedicure tools for each guest: nail files, orange sticks, metal pushers, nail clippers, foot files, nail buffers, etc.
Make sure you have nail polish in different colors, too! Arrange them in a tray so your guests can choose. Plan this party with the help of these tips.
