I’ve found that the older I get, the more me-time I need to take. I am constantly hearing about lack of free-time in our lives but I really have been trying to take 10 minutes for myself here & there. Today I thought it would be fun to see what I do & some of my favorite products to use along the way!
As many of you know- I’m a bit of a nail art nut! What you might not know is that I consider my nail time often as me-time since it gets me to slow down & quit going for a little while. Hard to do too much when your nails are wet right? Some of my must-have shades right now are from the KBShimmer Spring line & you can see a few in action in some recent nail art here. This Kiss Salon Secrets Luxe Accents kit just got here & I am so excited to play with some of the faux turquoise stones for summer & iridescent triangles! Many of you know I am wild about Nail Butter after featuring it in my favorites here but I am also a huge fan of the travel-friendly Sephora nail files as well!
My house is also a meeting place for chocolate lovers & the SNICKERS® Almond bars are some of our favorites. I toast almonds in the house all the time like on this chicken recipe on Home in High Heels so it isn’t a surprise this candy bar is one of our favorites! We’ve also been liking the SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Squares which we picked up at Walgreens recently. There is 2 per package so they are perfect to share…or not. There are very few items made more perfectly for a bit of me-time, right?
I find reaching for some splurge-worthy items often makes me feel a bit special on a bad day. The Bite Agave Lip Mask works hard to repair lips but also just makes them feel so lovely. This instantly makes me feel prettier & more upbeat. The ROUGE VOLUPTÉ Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in Caress Pink is another that just makes me happy & the rose scent is so luxe. Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm
Scents are so important to us as humans & certain smells can actually alter your mood! I keep a variety of products around with that in mind including the selection above! I recently got three candles from Old Factory in a sampler with Green Tea, Cucumber, & Lemongrass which are super relaxing & burn clean. The Skin & Co Sicilian Body Lotion is divine & has a mixed of conditioner & citrus which I love for daytime. The Badger Certified Organic Focus Balm is packed with scents like citrus & ginger & lives next to my desk for a few moments of rubbing to the temples during a long day. This L’Occitane Cherry Blossom L’Eau Shower Milk is my favorite on dreary days because it really smells like a delicate spring floral!
Don’t quite have 10 minutes free but want to do some pampering? I’m a huge fan of face masks! I tend to multi-task when wearing one with any of the above or below tips but I also break out the kindle for some reading sometimes! Here I have the Glam Glow ThirstyMud Mask which I tried a sample of & really liked, the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask which helps with dead skin, & the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask which really kills breakouts! Use masks to make your skin look better even when you’re short on time!
