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.

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.

For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
