saturday is a day for the spa. relax, indulge, enjoy, and love yourself, too.


Okay, so technically it is Friday, but the quote still rings true! Every once and a while, it's important to take some time out and pamper yourself. Which is why I decided to do just that. Some relaxing music, an at home facial, and a pedicure. Nothing fancy, but just enough to re-focus myself.


For the facial, I used Freeman's Anti-Stress Mask. It smelled wonderful with hints of lavender, and was a bright blue! I felt a bit like a Smurf once I had put it on! It left my skin feeling much smoother, though!


After my facial, I gave myself a foot scrub, and painted my toes a glittery gold colour. Like I said, nothing fancy, but it definitely helped me to relax!

When you pamper yourself, what do you like to do?

  20. I feel like I never relax when I do these things at home. On occasion though I go get a pedicure and totally zone out and it's fabulous!
