5 Ways to Pamper Yourself at Home
Comments Off on 5 Easy Ways to Pamper Yourself at Home

One thing that I don’t do enough of is taking the special care to put extra attention on myself. I think this is a common trait in more mothers, we tend to take less care of ourselves as we are taking care of our little ones. I have put together 5 easy ways to pamper yourself at home in an effort to remind myself to do these things and hopefully to also encourage you to take that spare time (I know what is that? but honestly, plan for it and you can find it) to pamper yourself.

1. PEDICURE // When is the last time that you gave your feet the care and attention they needed? This one doesn’t happen that often in my house but I recently received some Rocky Mountain Soup products for at home pedicures and it actually inspired this post and for me to do this and more as a treat to myself. Don’t forget to grab your favorite polish to finish them off!

2. PLUCK THOSE EYEBROWS // Now some of you might be more on top of this than others but for me (especially because I wear glasses and they are often covered) I usually don’t think about my eyebrows till it is too late and I am putting my makeup on in a hurry to leave the house. Let’s solve that and pamper our eyebrows a little more, because believe me when I did this yesterday man did I feel like my face was nailing it today.

3. READ A BOOK // This might sound as appealing to start as it will after you are done, but trust me even if you aren’t a huge fan of reading, I feel that once you become a mom a silent moment diving into a story that isn’t your own ends up being very relaxing. Don’t believe me and want to start small, find a magazine that fits your interests and dive into that and see for yourself, disconnected from the TV, computer and phone for this time is very refreshing.

4. TAKE A BATH // You might want to combine reading a book with taking a bath to make it the prime time pampering yourself. When I get the time to take a bath I tend to turn the lights off, light a candle, bring in a book and use my favorite bath salts or milk bath to soak and relax with.

5. DECORATE WITH FLOWERS // Ok so this one involves more then just the house as when you are out and about you will have to remember to pick up a little bouquet (spring is perfect for tulips and daffodils, esp. at your local farmer’s market). Having flowers in the home just adds a special touch of feeling blessed and pampered. You can also add the flowers to your time relaxing or on the night stand reading your book — perfect!

I would love to hear what ways you pamper yourself at home and maybe we can add some more great ideas to the list.

  • A few months ago when I got my wisdom teeth removed it put me in a work out rut. I felt super unmotivated and just blah. Really, mostly just felt sorry for myself. Sounds silly, maybe. But I was thinking about it recently and how that’s kind of continued to linger to the last couple months. I weighed myself the other day (we don’t own a scale so I don’t weigh myself often) and that was a bit of a kick in the butt, I realized that yes I wasn’t feeling good about myself, yes I’ve gained a decent amount of weight, and yes that aligns with the less positive thinking, less motivation and large lacking of exercise.

I feel funny writing this out but I think it’s important to talk about. I shared the times I’ve felt motivation, excited and energized to get to the gym, attend a workout or yoga class, but I also want to share that things happen.

We can have good days, good months, even good years but then something might happen that changes the course of our daily routine.

I don’t think I’ve failed, I’ve just lost track of the healthier lifestyle that was making me feel noticeably better. So here I am writing things out, to hopefully connect with you all on a level of understanding.

Maybe you are feeling the blah. Uninspired, low energy and making excuses for yourself. Here’s my little motivation to say, nothing changes unless you do. If you want change BE THE CHANGE.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on repeat this week, in hopes to snap out of it.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀

Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?

I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
