Who else loves a good spa day? I’m a big believer in self-care for every lady. We need to create time for ourselves to disconnect for a period from the world and focus on our well-being. For me, one of the most relaxing things to do is a spa day. Unfortunately, going to a local spa for a day of services can get costly. But, I’ve found I can create a relaxing spa atmosphere from the comfort of my own home for a fraction of the price! It might not have all the fancy bells and whistles that an actual spa would have, but I find the most important part is being able to just relax and take a moment to breathe. I definitely suggest if you have kiddos at home, try your best to make plans for them outside of the house. I love being with my kids more than anything, but I am not able to fully focus on self-care if they are in the same place as I am. Over the years I have learned to feel less selfish when I take a few moments to myself and recharge. I truly think it benefits us all when I am refreshed and ready to give 100% of myself. Ladies- plan a few hours sometime soon and treat yourself to a day of beauty at home. I have shared some of the things I love to do during my alone time, along with some of my favorite products. Happy relaxing!
A must have during your spa day is fresh and pretty nails. By now you guys have probably seen my posts on the press on nails I have fallen in love with. If you haven’t tried them yet, you definitely should! There are so many colors, shapes and lengths to choose from and they last longer than any other press on nails I have tried.
If your fingernails are going to look pretty, then your toenails need to be on point, too! I love using a foot mask before I go to work on filing, buffing and painting. This foot mask is affordable and can be found at Target. It is really easy to use and is mess free! After I have used it I like to follow up with my electronic foot file or the basic ones used in nail salons. Amazon has great prices on both!
At Home Facials
I love getting a good facial. Not only are they relaxing, but they are an important part of skin care. I have tried tons of different masks at home and love seeing the results afterwards. Masks can range in price and what they are created to do for your face and skin. I’d suggest finding something in your price range and reading reviews before committing to trying something.
My other favorite part of a spa day is a massage! This is where I feel truly relaxed and feel the tension start to melt away. You can learn different techniques on how to do self massage on your hands, feet, etc. But, I love to go for the reliable and easy head massagers. Does anyone else feel the tingles when getting a good shampoo and rinse at a hair salon? This head massager allows you to give yourself that feeling for as long as you want. Winning!
I have written about my love for essential oils before. When I am trying to relax and take a few deep calming breaths, I find lavender oil helps me. Spray a little on your wrist and inhale it throughout your day.
Bubble Bath Time
Bubble baths are a must have at the end of my spa day. I like to get all of the remaining lotions from my manicure and pedicure off before I get dressed and ready to tackle the rest of my day. Plus, bubble baths are the epitome of relaxing. Turn off the lights, light a candle and jam away to some chill music. I like to add a bath bomb for an added touch,
Chillin In Comfort
Once I am done with my bath and ready to get dressed, I still like to aim for comfort. I love wearing flip-flop slippers during the summer. I have linked a couple of pairs that look really comfortable, get great reviews and are priced well!
