Having just to turn the page on a month that has been very hectic for me, I look back and realize that the last few weeks were far from being a walk in the park. Gosh, I’m not complaining, because God knows how grateful I am for the blessings and even the lessons. However, having to treat myself to a mini-spa in the comfort of my own home, to unwind and refresh when I needed it the most, was one of the most rewarding things I’ve actually done to ease the burden of the tiredness.
With the ended month being one in which we celebrated the International Women’s Day, we all chanted and praised the bricks of foundations, women are posing everyday all around the world, but there’s one question we women need to ask ourselves… How I’m treating myself? How am I taking care of myself? Reality is most women (and men) are out there caring for their loved ones and even strangers, working diligently to make the world a better place, but they have zero time and consideration in treating themselves. They just don’t! But the matter of the fact is, you must treat yourself, and you must do it unapologetically!
This is not a selfish act, but in fact a self-love gesture toward your own psychosomatic health. If you don’t care for yourself, treat yourself to a whatever you love doing that will benefit not only your body, but your entire being, how well do you think you can take care of your loved ones in the long term? The thing is, well often, we think unproportionally big or out of our means and needs. The luxury trip to the 5-star salon or hotel, for example, may be your ideal “treat yourself” moment; and if you can afford that, hey girl, you totally deserve it! But, what if you can’t? Well, that’s where you call in your imagination; – A very simple one actually – and If you don’t have your mini-spa essentials ready, a quick trip to a nearby store should do the trick… Lucky me, Soap And Glory and Boohoo were kind enough to send me some products and items which tended to my own mini-spa moment!
While I was home alone sans the kids, I had a “Eureka!” moment. Maybe it wasn’t that big of “Eureka!” situation, but grant it, the unnerving and exciting idea of pampering myself was quite enchanting. So I decided to treat my face to a Soap And Glory face mask that was in my goodies package and then I enjoyed a nice, warm, and soothing bath with all the bell and whistles… Yes! You can lit scented candles, add some aromatic or therapeutic oils and petals to your bath, and let an enchanting music of your choice playing in the background. I did; and it was suave and debonair!
Now, what would be a pampering moment without the feel of a soft and smooth skin afterwards? Soap And Glory and Boohoo have come to the rescue again. It was time to tune in to a re-run of a favorite TV show and pamper myself to a soft baby skin. We all love and yearn for that soft baby skin, don’t we?
If you haven’t tried Soap And Glory’s ” The Righteous Butter” and “Hand Food” cream this might be the season to stock up on a couple of those and get your skin ready for the beach and those summer outfit days. Without even a feel to the touch, I appreciated that the scents weren’t overpowering. After my bath, I butter up myself with the Righteous Butter (which is made with softening Shea Butter and Aloe Vera) and it soaked right into my skin and left it smooth and soft.
I love it; and while I’m working on getting my Summer body ready to show off the bikini ensemble boohoo has sent me along with these pampering products, I might as well, keep treating myself to these mini-spa moments whenever I can. Why? Because I deserve it; and so do you! Treat yourself, girlfriends!
Cheers to a fabulous week ahead!
” I participated in the “Treat yourself” campaign and these products were sent to me free of charge. All opinions are my own”
I love that boohoo cosmetic case and I like your style, girl!
Thank you Johanna!
I think a good at-home spa day sounds amazing!

This month has been kicking my butt Edwige and It’s only the 5th. I’m tired, sluggish and just plain ole’ sad, which is very unlike me. Oh well, I’m going to take some of your advice and treat myself well this weekend, sleeping in, a massage and a much-needed pedicure are on my to-do list. Looking forward to seeing your new beach ensemble, my summer body is almost ready… almost lol
