Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post. In today’s post we are going to talk about what I did for valentine’s day. So, if you are like me, my husband was working, and I had gotten home from work, and my toddler was home, so while he was taking a nap, I decided to do some self-care and just take care of myself.
This week has been stressful and there has been some things that I have been neglecting like my toenails…as funny as that sounds…so for valentine’s day, I did an at home pedicure. Here is how you can have your own at home pedicure, or manicure session as well. If you want to know how I did mine…continue reading…
Number 1) Set the mood. It’s very important to set the mood and get it as relaxing as you can. What I did, was I put on my essential oil diffuser. I used chamomile and lavender because they are the most relaxing ones that I have. It made the room smell so good and very calming which is what I was going for. I also put on some battery operated candles, however you may use real candles, I just haven’t been buying them so I didn’t have any. I shut off all the lights except for the candles, and it looked amazing.
Number 2) Make your favorite calming drink. My favorite calming drink is green tea, so that is what I made.
Number 3) Gather all your items that you are going to be using for your at home pedicure/manicure/self-care session. So, I gathered a bowl that I cleaned out and filled with water, conditioner and body wash. I gathered a towel to put under the bowl so in case water gets out of the bowl, it won’t go all over your floor. I also got a callus remover, which you can get kits with them in them anywhere pretty much. I also gathered my nail polish that I was going to use, so because it was valentine’s day, I got red. And lastly, I picked a movie that I wanted to watch, and because I was alone, I just decided on a weird shark movie, because I love those movies. But you can do whatever you want, as long as you have gathered all of your items.
Number 4) Make sure you have all your things, then start your movie and your session. It is so relaxing, and it doesn’t have to take a long time, especially if you have kids, and you don’t have a lot of time.
All you need to make sure you do is just take time for yourself each month and make it your own. You are the only one that is going to be able to make yourself happy, so why not do things that make you happy.
What is one thing you do that makes you happy?
