Happy Monday everyone, I hope all of you are keeping safe. I am well aware I did not post a single post last week and I am going to be honest with you, I was just not really feeling it. This quarantine has got me 24/7 in the same space, surrounded by the same things and same people so it can get a bit hard to find inspiration. It was not a great week either, a lot of different things were getting to me so I do apologize for the lack of posts last week. This week however, I was able to get back on track and get my inspiration going once again.
I realized how during this quarantine I had not taken a single second for myself, it was always about taking pictures for future posts, writing and editing, brainstorming for upcoming days… and not a single one was to treat myself. That we are stuck in the house 24/7 doesn’t really mean we can just stop caring about us.
That is why, I decided I would have little spa days in the house to relax every now and then, I put my fanciest pajama and I day drank like it was nobody’s business. I watched a few chick flicks, danced around the house and sang along to High School Musical with no shame.
Of course I can’t go to a real spa and my at home facilities are not to the spa level so a girl’s gotta work with what she has. In my case, a nice way to relax is takin a warm shower or a bath if you prefer (I just take showers to save water, take care of our planet people!). What I like to do is make little changes on my routine just to feel like I am doing something different a bit more exciting. In my case is using foam shower gel instead of the normal one. That makes me feel a little bit more bougee. I personally love using Rituals, and their scents make me feel like I am in a real spa. All of their scents are Heaven for my nose, just saying.
Another product I love using are body milks. Of course after the shower we need a good body cream action. My face is very oily but the rest of my body gets dry very easily so I always make sure I apply some body milk after the shower to make my skin smooth, nice and hydrated.
Of course, you can’t really have a treat yourself day without some masks? You can get the typical creamy ones you apply and then remove with water, or the “premade ones” as I like to call them. Those are the ones from Sephora for example where you already have a sheet of paper with the product in it and you just apply it and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. I recommend getting the Sephora ones, specifically the green tea or coconut ones, they are THE BEST.
For the rest of the day, just wear your fanciest pajama and get that confidence boost. I personally love my Woman’s Secret one that looks like satin. It is pretty funny how just a nice pajama can change your entire mood. Every time I wear it I feel like such a strong independent and successful woman, and I am not mad about it.
Do whatever you enjoy doing the rest of the days, from baking to just chill and watch movies, listen to music or read. Whatever you enjoy, take time off of whatever you are doing and make sure you are relaxing every now and then as well.
