It’s my birthday…
42 – the answer to life, the universe and everything (or so says the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy 🙂 ). Let’s see what answers this year of my life brings me. I look forward to it.
I wondered what to do for my birthday. A friend suggested going to a spa for a massage. I fancied some quiet time. And so, as a maker of spa-type goodies, I realized I could have the best of both worlds! So, after a lie-in, breakfast prepared by my kids and lots of hugs and kisses from my favorite people, my wonderful partner took the kids out for the day and left me with glorious HOURS to myself at home. I made the most of it. I pampered myself with Tierra & Lava treats. I read some of my book (something I haven’t had the chance to do it a long time), I drank tea and listened to the birds and the wind. I spent time with me.
It has been a great day.
My Self Care Ideas
So, I cleansed with the Calendula Blossom Facial Cleanser, toned with Garden Blossom face toner and mixed up a batch of the Sulphur Source Face Mask (blended with ground oats and some moringa powder). I applied this and left it on for about 20 minutes while I read a bit of my book and sipped some coffee.
Then, I jumped into the shower, rinsed off the face mask and exfoliated all over with the Black Salt Body Scrub – so yummy! – and washed my hair with the Lemongrass & Panela Shampoo, conditioning with Horsetail & Cocoa Butter.
Finally, wrapped in my towel, I applied some So Gentle Serum to my face and Lemongrass Body Souffle all over. Final touch was the Mandarin & Rose Day Face Souffle.
