Running my two businesses and working two part-time jobs definitely takes a toll on me, mentally and physically. Despite my busy schedule, you better believe that somehow, someway I make time for me. Whether it’s 15 minutes or a full day, I make sure to set some time aside to pamper myself.
To be honest, I’ve never really been a big fan of spas, especially since I can’t smoke while I’m there. It sort of defeats the purpose for me, how can I enjoy a relaxing day without smoking 😩. Due to the fact that I cannot smoke in spas, I’ve always pretty much pampered myself at home. UNLESS I really need a massage, then and only then will I go to the spa.
Below are a few of my favorite essentials that I’ll use for my pamper days aka my at-home spa days. The below list reflects one of my full spa days, not the quick ones.
Happy Wax Melts – Eucalyptus Spearmint or Lavender Chamomile: Before I get my day started I like to fill my home with these spa-inspired scents from Happy Wax®. These soothing fragrances help get me in a calming state and ready for relaxation
Warm/Hot Towels: I always make sure that I have some warm/hot hand towels and bath towels ready and waiting. I love to use hot towels when I’m giving myself a facial, manicure, or pedicure. The warm towels come in handy for when I’m finished with my healing baths.
CBDfx Infused Bath Bombs – Soothing Lavender and Recharge Eucalyptus: These bath bombs are perfect for soaking away the day’s stress and tension. For those days when my body just wants some loving and relaxation, I’ll use my Lavender bath bomb. And for the days when I’ve pushed myself over my limits, I’ll use my Eucalyptus bath bomb to restore my muscles. Give me a glass of infused wine, a spliff, a good book or soft music and CBD take me away! 😩😩😩
Spiritual & Paid – Magical Candles: If you guys have been following me for some time, then you know one of my favorite candles is Spiritual & Paid’s crystal-infused candles. I absolutely love the beauty and amazing energy these candles give off. I use them for Yoga, Journaling, Healing Baths, and/or just to bring me good energy. None of my pamper days are complete without my magical candles. Now, since I’m a huge collector of them, I’ll usually light whatever candle reflects my mood at the time. Usually, for my pamper days, I’ll deter to one of my chakra candles, protection candles, or good vibe candles.
Spiritual & Paid – Crystal Infused Body Butters: You are definitely missing out if you have never tried these crystal-infused body butters. Super thick and creamy, these butters are infused with high vibes and protective energy. Once I finish with my healing baths, I’ll rub my body butter on while I set my intentions.
Smoking Robe aka my Favorite Plush Robe: My nice thick warm robe, with two big pockets to hold my cannabis 😉. Once, I’ve finished my healing bath and applied my body butter. My robe pretty much stays on for the rest of the day. My smoking robe completes me, it doesn’t matter if I’m having a pamper day or not. The smoking robe will be on.
CBDfx Infused Face Mask: Another must-have for my list. I just put my face mask on, kick my feet up and in 10 minutes I have healthy glowing skin. Once I’m finished with my mask I just throw it away and gently pat the remaining serum into my skin. The best part is these masks come in 5 variations that you can choose from – Aloe Vera to soothe, Charcoal to brighten, Cucumber to hydrate, Lavendar to calm stress, and Rose to tone/moisture.
Pedicure Essentials: I usually do my nails every week so during my Pamper Days I like to focus more on my feet than I would my hands. When I do my pedicures, I’ll start off with a foot soak – you guessed it, CBDfx infused Detox foot soak. Well, it’s their bath salt that I use as a foot soak 😩 don’t judge me it works GREAT! I just add the bath salt to my foot spa and let the magic happen. Once I’m finished with my foot soak and I give myself a pedicure, I’ll then put on my CBDfx infused foot mask for 20 minutes. These masks always leave my feet feeling smooth, soft, and happy 😉 aka happy feet 😩. Similar to the face mask, once I’m done with my foot mask, I just throw them away and rub the remaining serum into my feet.
My Journal: Depending on how I am feeling I may bring out my journal and do some self-reflecting during my Pamper days. Some days I rather binge-watch one of my favorite crime tv series or play some soft music, and some days I’ll just want to write about what’s on my mind or how I’m feeling at the time.
Some Sticky Icky: Yes you better believe it, NO PAMPER DAY is complete without some of that good stuff. Now, since it’s for pamper day, I won’t do Indica strain for the simple fact I’m not trying to sleep my day away. Give me a nice hybrid strain where I can feel super relaxed yet alert enough to still actually pamper myself 😩. Before I do anything on Pamper Day, I roll up a few spliffs in my favorite rolling papers and then I set them aside.
Fruits or Snacks for the Munchies: I feel like mangos and chocolates (not together, just saying mangos and chocolates 😩) have a dual purpose in my life. They taste super yummy and they elevate my high. So of course, I’ll always have these around when I’m home pampering myself. Some days I may go all out and bake some infused edibles, however fruits especially mangos are always my go-to.
Spotify Playlist: For the days when I’m not reading or binge-watching TV, I have my Spotify playing in the background on my favorite playlist. If I’m having a home spa day by myself I’ll have something soft playing in the background. However, if it’s a home spa day with my girls then I’ll have a more upbeat playlist in the background.
