Sometimes, you just have to make time for YOURSELF. Take a break from the world after a shitty day. The best way to stay young is to be cool and free.

-------------------------

Here's what I normally do to de-stressifffyyy myself.

-------------------------


-------------------------

I turn on Bob Marley because his music is CHILL. It's not too upbeat to where my blood pressure races up. His music makes me feel as if i'm in paradise. I love bob marley! (plus i can always sense a smell of coconut when i listen to his music haha)


-------------------------

After I get the music goin', I fill up the tub and use this luxury bubble bath from Bath and Body Works. Sensual Luxury Bath in Black Currant Vanilla. It has a sexy smell to it, not everyone likes the same fragrances, but this one relaxes me. I believe it's $16.50 for the jar but a bit of this goes a ways. You'll prob. get a better deal when they have their sales.


I definitely make sure to give my feet some treatment also! This is the only foot scrub that I have tried and you can find it at wal-mart. I should take better care of my feet but this does a good job and it's cheap.

-------------------------------
I put this on after the bath because it relaxes my face. The minty feeling in this cools down my face and I feel as if it is sucking out all of the stress from my face! haha


-------------------------

Then I slip into a very comfy nightie. Or I go naked, since I can anyways :P I get my nighties from everywhere, as long as they are comfy.



If my husband is around, I will usually have him rub this body cream on my feet. It works great! It's not greasy but feels buttery smooth. My favorite scent of this is obviously the mango mandarin.






You can't forget the lip treatment also!
----------------------------
Overall: Give yourself an hour at least. You deserve it! It will preserve your youth and spirit.
------------------------------
what do you do to de-stressifffyyyy yourself?
------------------------------
oh yeah, if you guys have any questions, always feel free to ask me! i'll try my best to answer them and get back to ya. <3 leslie

Wow, I like your method of destressing yourself!

I turn on Latika's Theme from slumdog on my iPhone, blast it up on repeat, and take a nice LUSH bubble bath. Gotta make sure I dont fall asleep!!! After that I'd give myself a nice mask then read a book before going to sleep :)

When I want to relax, I just play with my DS and eat a chocolate bar..haha, so unhealthy ^_~

Love your blog, love all your entries. Honestly, i dont know how to distress myself. Too busy chasing after one rugrat and taking care of the other. :) I can't seem to find any ALONE time. Plus with school..it's a lot harder. If i'm lucky i'll get a 30 minute massage from the hubby. But reading your blog REALLy makes me want to have a nice warm bubble bath all to myself! ( i say that b/c usually the hubby likes to join me)

Meeow said...

white zinfindel is a type of wine, its sweeter than most wine, if you heard arbor mist, its like that but more to a dry sweet taste.
you should get a bottle after you give birth hahah
