I was trying to decide what kind of routine I wanted to share with you all. I came across some people doing “paper routines” and I thought: “That’s what I’m doing! That’s my favorite thing to do!” So here it is.
My favorite thing to do is pamper myself…. That makes me sound so lazy. But really! I think every single woman should take at least two hours a week to just relax and pamper. Whether that means going on a walk at the park, taking a bubble bath, or reading a book, it’s very important to feed the soul. Plus it helps reduce burn out and helps you refresh so that you can keep going!
Okay so It’s 6 o’ clock. My husband has to work late. Do you know what this means?! Pamper time!!
My favorite dinner is anything pasta. So the first thing I do is make up a pasta dish with some garlic bread (if I have any), and a salad, turn on the TV and eat my yummy dinner. The reason this is part of my pamper routine when my husband isn’t home is because he hates pasta dishes. I know… he’s crazy.
Next, I will choose a face mask! This one is my current favorite from Art Natural. It feels so amazing, doesn’t irritate my sensitive face, and leaves my skin feeling super soft. It’s by far my favorite face mask I have ever tried! As I am applying my mask, I start running a super hot bath with some epsom salts and essential oils!
Bath, Chocolate, Movies
I love… like LOVE taking baths. We may have bought our house because of the bathtub… just saying. Once I’m in the bath (okay this might be weird), but I’ll find a movie on Netflix from my phone and watch it while eating my favorite dark chocolate. What’s better than watching a movie, eating dark chocolate, and burning your skin off in a hot bath? NOTHING!
After I get out of the bath and remove my face mask I’ll do a little bit more face pampering. This changes from day to day but I like to add some rose water and then this Renewal Serum from Young Living. Yusss!
Don’t Forget the Nails!
By this time my husband is usually home so if I get to this step, he must be really behind on work. So if we are going for the full package, I’ll grab my favorite nail polish, sit on the couch finish my movie, and paint my nails!
If I don’t feel like doing my nails I’ll either finish my movie or grab a book and read and relax on the couch.
I hope you enjoyed seeing into my pamper routine! Writing this is really making me want to go pamper myself, so I might just do that!
I hope this also inspired you to take some time out of your week to pamper yourself a bit. You deserve it!
