so this weekend was all
(via flickr, tumblr, and pinterest)
...but you know, with kids around.
most of the time.
today i'm all
but! instead of moping i'm going to treat myself to some much-needed me time.
its crucial, you know.
when was the last time you
turned off the cellie,
turned on a gorgeous symphony,
slipped into a hot bath
bubbling with deliciousness
and enjoyed a glass of cold champagne?
that's what i thought.
go run the water.
now would be good.
to properly illustrate:
another fun treat you can whip up in the comfort of your casa, no credit card required?
(unlike some of the above splurges!)
a brown sugar scrub
i made my version a few days ago, and it is
scour your pantry for the following,
then get to scrubbin'!
(note: the recipe can obvs be halved if you don't have enough, like i did :)
*4c brown sugar
(turbinado if you really don't want no scrubs)
*4c kosher salt
*1c finely ground almond or apricot meal,
*1/2c almond oil or apricot kernel oil
*5-10 drops vitamin e oil
*optionals: fragrance, sunflower oil, and 2T. avocado, shea, or cocoa butter
*spoon into your fave container--be careful with glass in your bath!--allow scrub to sit overnight after an additional 1/2c almond or apricot kernel oil is added, and enjoy!
ps. if this is just too much, you can certainly create a budget
(on time and $)
version in a pinch!
*1c brown sugar of your choice
*5-6T. oil of your choice
(i have used olive, jojoba and even sunflower)
the point is to treat yourself.
i certainly plan to.
i've got a busy week ahead.
off to get my beauty sleep, lovers!
