Yay for Friday! I’m so happy that Friday is finally here. I don’t know about you guys but I feel like this week lasted forever! Maybe it’s because it’s been kind of a weird week but it’s finally the weekend and I couldn’t be happier! I don’t have to many things to do this weekend but I always end up having a ton to do once the week starts. Anyone else have this problem?
One thing I really want to do is relax. It’s been such an amazing and exciting beginning of 2017. I knew this year was going to change a lot of things for me I just didn’t realize it was going to be all so quickly! Even though I am super excited and grateful for many opportunities coming my way I’m physically and mentally exhausted. I do work an 8-5 Monday-Friday, I have an internship, and I work on this blog. Of course, somewhere in there I manage to have some personal time but I just need a break! Who’s with me!?!
Today I’m talking all about relaxing and what I do to give myself a “me day”. If you follow me on Instagram, (which if you don’t follow me now at lovelysilvia) you saw my at home spa night/me night. It was so nice but I am not only wanting but needing another one ASAP!
So, first things first GLASS OF WINE! Nothing says a “me day” like a glass of wine! I can’t drink right now but soon enough I will be adding this back into my me day. The next thing I usually like to do is light up some candles and make a bath. If you’ve never taken a bath you must! They are so relaxing and there are a ton of great products that will help you achieve your own relaxing bath! I love to use Philosophy’s bubble bath gel and a Lush bath bombs!
Along with that I love to do a mask! There are so many great masks out and you can find one for just about anything! Some people love sheet masks (which are great) and some people love peeling masks (also amazing). One of my absolutely favorite masks is by Glam Glow! It is the SuperMud Mask and it’s perfect for clearing any breakouts or getting rid of gross black heads. If you have a big event coming up this mask is for you!
One of the last things I like to do is paint my nails. I know some people don’t like painting their nails but I love it! It’s one of my favorite things to do and I have so many colors. Some of my favorite brands are OPI, Essie, and China Glaze! If you haven’t tried these brands you must. They are amazing! My favorite colors are nude, browns, or light pinks.
Of course nothing beats a me day without a favorite show or a great book! I’m re-reading #GirlBoss because… aren’t we all? Still love the book the second time around!
I hope this gave many of you ideas for your next me/spa day! Have a great relaxing weekend and I’ll catch up with you on Monday!
