What ever your status. single, married, co-habiting; there is no getting away from the fact that Valentines day is just about upon us. It doesn't matter if you love it or hate it, it is just around the corner and come this weekend it will be here.
This valentines day I have made a promise to myself that I will have a good, old girly pamper through the day. Valentines day falls this year on a Saturday so why not, kick back and relax - at the end of the day, you deserve it!
Here's my opinion on what I see as the perfect way to chill out in the comfort of your own home.
Steam Happy whilst running your most ideal bath shut the door and any windows, this will make the room full of steam and give your bath room that 'spa' like feel. You can also achieve this by running a hot shower! Bubbles or a Bomb treat yourself to your favourite bath bomb, bath soak, bubbles or anything that you love to soak in. If your short on bathing products why not just add a little oil, baby oil will do just fine; remember not to wash your hair though, It will leave it looking rather greasy! Candles Galore I am sure I aren't alone when I say that candles really help create the atmosphere for a perfect relaxation session. Be it two or twenty two, just placing them around you will help you feel completely at ease. Skin Care This is the perfect opportunity to give your skin a good old helping of TLC. I love the No Clogs Allowed by Soap and Glory
When I use face masks or take the time to really moisturise and cleanse my skin it feels like such a treat. I feel like I should 100% try and do this more! Do What You Love Once your all soaked and feel pampered, settle down to do what you makes you feel great. Personally I would be painting my nails whilst watching movies back to back, snuggled up with so yummy nibbles. Don't Forget Those Feet Grab some baby oil or Vaseline and smoother your feet in this, pop on some cotton socks and as you chill out and enjoy some 'me' time your feet will be taking care of them selves. Treat Yourself If your lucky enough to be getting wined and dined on valentines day why not treat yourself to a gorgeous new outfit, after your pampering day you will be both feeling and looking amazing, your confidence will be on cloud 9 and heads will be turning where ever you go. If you aren't going out, why not treat yourself anyway?
