yesterday after a trip to target, i decided nap time was going to be ME time. i gathered all the essentials, and once everyone was down, indulged in some good ole girl-type pampering. it was no trip to habitude to be sure. but 24 hours later, the effects are still EVIDENT. and i’m inspired to get even more creative next time. like… a hair treatment or… wine. i don’t know. here’s the basics of what i did. that $2 face mask from target- GLORIOUS. go ahead- splurge!
1- keiko is the cutest. and she does great tutorials. and she has a line of cute glasses. THE. CUTEST. everything. wrapped my hair up just like this so it was outta my face for spa time. (photo credit- keiko-lynn)
2-pre mask wash with my clarisonic. the very dramatic man who sold this to me at nordstrom, told me it changed his life. he also suggested i buy a chanel face wash that was also life changing, and around $60. i buy olay cream cleanser from target, and think if a face washing utensil can change your life, maybe you have bigger problems than a dirty face. but it gets the job done, and i do have a clean face after. win win.
3-by far the highlight of nap spa, this little packet of face mask was the best! yes i got anti aging, because OLD. and yes, it did the trick. at one point during the day i caught site of my face in a mirror and was like- oh! so… yeah, that’s good.
4- fresh seaberry face oil. i’m trying not to be addicted to this, but i am. it’s not ‘life changing’ by any means, but after having kids, my face has been… weird? i don’t know… lizard-ish (i’m a beauty guru, admit it). anyway, this stuff makes it feel like my face again. which is nice.
5-i think i’ve bought these as a gift for every person i know. have we talked about my chapstick addiction? anyway, these are probably for preteen girls, but all women are preteen girls on the inside and i love these. i can’t quite find the lipstick of my dreams (because it doesn’t exist) but these are just the right bit of chapstick + hint of color, and also- super moisturizing. this one is called peach kiss.
6-part of my chapstick hoard- i’m about the layering. this actually smells of sugar. after this combo, my lips felt so good!
7-making a kid is literally being sucked dry of all essential nutrients. then you breastfeed for another…oh, 15 months or so, and your body gives away more of the good stuff. my nails (and skin and hair) have been a mess. i’ve never had an issue with my nails (or skin, or hair), but they’re a flakey situation. i thought i’d try this stuff, because, hello, it has miracle in the name!
and that was nap time spa! about 20 minutes of indulge for about $10. the other 20 minutes was spent folding laundry. but my face looked really good while i folded that laundry…
(sorry there aren’t more hyper links- wordpress update issue, and i ran out of kid-free time- will add as time permits)
