Self-care is about more than allowing yourself five minutes of uninterrupted shower time. Though those moments are glorious we all need to remember that we need to truly take care of ourselves and our mental health. Work is hard, parenting is hard, life is hard. Give yourself the gift of pampering!
I’m a homebody and proud of it. Since I prefer to do my own pampering and mental detoxing at home I send everyone in the house away for a bit. I don’t care if they’re sitting at my in-laws for an hour or doing errands for the day. Get out, y’all. I love ya, but leave.
Here are a few of my own must-haves for when I’m having a quick, 1-hour, kids are still home, me-moment.
My me-moments always begin with my phone. I know. Unplug, right? I have a secret (probably not-so-secret anymore) addiction to playing Bingo on my phone. My soul is the oldest in the world when it comes to games. Also, I take that phone in the tub. I like my phone cases fashionable so for my iPhone 11 Pro I’ve been using the Grip2U SLIM Case.
Besides the fact that the Tinsel Collection is metallic and festive for the holidays can we please talk about how well these cases snugly fit to your hand?! No matter how I’m holding my phone I can rest assured it’s not going anywhere. The Prevent The Drop® grip-band is even interchangable so you can customize and tweak to your liking.
The Grip2U SLIM Case comes with a 90-day warranty and is wireless charging compatible. Code TINSEL15 gives you 15% off of your purchase through 11/25.
Out of the tub, first thing, hop into the comfiest sleepwear ever. You know, the matching loungewear set that every mom saves for when we push taking care of ourselves to the next level.
The 2 Piece Long Sleeve Notch Collar Girlfriend Pajama Set in Midnight Floral from Karen Neuburger feels so soft, comfortable, and cozy against my skin. It’s one of those PJ sets that after you buy the first one you find yourself online ordering 2-3 more because you just feel that good. Perfect for hanging out, lounging, and sleeping!
My feet are always freezing so I also immediately slip on a pair of cozy socks. The No nonsense Shortie Slipper Socks are faves because they’re soft and feature non-slip grippers on the soles. So cute and luxe!
Like I mentioned here earlier this week I’ve been really amping up my skincare for the Winter months and Mineral 89 from Vichy has played a huge part in that. Having just turned 40 I really wanted a good hyaluronic acid face serum that is clinically proven to strengthen and improve the skin’s barrier while still adding hydration. I’m still an oily gal but this serum works well for me and does everything I need it to and more!
Is there anything that makes you feel all done up other than having your nails done? Makeup makes me feel good but pretty nails make me feel complete.
