Becoming a mum suddenly means you loose all time to yourself. It’s hard, and lets be honest exhausting. I’ve aged about 10 years since becoming a mum I’m sure. As much as I obviously wouldn’t change a second of it, I’ve come to learn that a bit of self-love is VERY important!
As much as I’m sure you all try and do this, I’ve put this blog post together with a few of my favourite things to do. I’ve also thrown in a few of my favourite products to do it with as well! We all deserve a treat sometimes…
Face masks 🖤
Face masks is one of my go to, you just can’t go wrong. My poor tired skin needs all the TLC it can get! Here’s a few of my favourites..
If you want your skin to feel crazy smooth I can’t recommend IMAGE skincare enough! I couldn’t get over the fact my skin felt crazy smooth after the first mask!
If you don’t mind spending the money.. I’m also a big fan of glam glow face masks! They have some super cute girly, glittery ones. What more could you want?
Bath bombs 🖤
I usually team up a face mask with a nice relaxing bath!! And there’s no better feeling than lighting a candle, and throwing in a bath bomb. I personally absolutely LOVE lush bath bombs, however I found this amazing Instagram shop. The bath bombs smell AMAZING!
One thing, that without fail.. always makes me feel better.. having a tan! Life to me always seems better when your a bronzed goddess! I have a few tans I’m obsessed with! However, today I want to share with you NYK1 secrets. This tan is just amazing! There is no mess associated with this tan.. the mousse comes out white so there’s no extra colours added (which means no bed sheet transfer!!!) it’s very quick drying, and super easy to apply! The outcome of this tan is a gorgeous natural bronzed glow. It gradually develops over time, and will be fully developed within 24 hours. It’s an award winning tan, and I was so excited to try it. It definitely did not disappoint!
It comes with the softest tanning mitt, along with the cutest little face mitt!
Spa days 🖤
Granted, a spa day might be a little more pricey.. and a little more time consuming! It’s always worth planning one for yourself though, because there is NOTHING more relaxing than a day at the Spa. Treat yourself, have some you time, get a massage, and relax!! As a mum you deserve some time to you, to refresh, and to recharge your batteries.. so don’t be afraid to do it!
We all need to recharge sometimes, whether that’s taking half an hour for a bath, or spending an afternoon somewhere. Don’t be scared to treat yourself. It’s exhausting work being on the go 24/7 with your child. It becomes too much sometimes, and that’s okay to admit! A time out helps to make you feel a bit more you again so you can be the best version of yourself for your little one. We all deserve a break every now and then.
