So as you all know- Valentine’s Day is coming up, literally like a speed of light. I mean this year is already flying by faster than I wish, and there never seems to be enough time AT ALL. So this Valentines Day since I am flying a bit solo, I decided why wait for Valentines Day to pamper myself, why not treat everyday as a LOVE day? You know? With that being said, this week is all about a bit of pampering and what better way to kick off the LOVE month of February than with my favorite gals from The Beauty Council and a bit of help from LUSH. So sit back, relax, draw yourself a lovely bubble bath and get ready for Valentine’s Day Prep with LUSH…
So as you all may know one of my New Years Resolutions were that I promised myself a bit more pampering. I am always on the go-go-go and never seem to find a lot of time for myself. Now my vision of a solid pamper is going all out. You know the drill- facial, mask, some sort of body wrap, and a deep tissue massage- basically the works! However since I am always on the go, I never seem to have enough time to actually get to my butt in gear to the local Day Spa, so I decided it was time to create my own day spa within the comfort of my home.
RELAX AND DIP: First things first, in order for me to create that spa like vibe I have to do some serious radio silence- off with the cell phone and social media checking- addicted and all– I have to cut off the electronics and turn up the volume of some relaxing tunes. There is just something awesome with the idea of electronics off while you are stewing in a warm, bubbly bath with a hint of candlelight and the aroma of lavender. I mean seriously I can almost feel myself drifting off right now, thinking about it. So to make my candlelight bath time luxe I enlisted the help of LUSH Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar. I mean unicorns are magical beings and after taking a dip with this amazingness, I have decided #theydoexist. This bubble bar is hands down AMAZING and oh so uber aromatic. A unique blend of lavender, ylang ylang and neroli this bubble bar has my tube becoming a slice of heaven lately. Before the tap is completely filled in the tub of warm water, to up the luxury I tossed in a piece of the LUSH Floating Flower Bath Bomb. Something about a hint of sizzle to a good bath just ticks all the boxes. Vivid, colorful layers of pink, orange and green froth start to fill the tub as the scent of jasmine dances in the air. I am OBSESSED to say the least. Feeling relaxed quiet yet?
THE MOOD IS SET, WHAT’S NEXT? Next step in the Valentines Day prep is a solid facial. And what better way to a facial then…. Drumroll… a perfect face mask. Now I am not a stranger to a good old face mask, but I something about my new favorite Formula 10.0.6 Get Your Glow On Brightening Peel Off Mask. Sitting in my tub, totally pampered with a peel off face mask looking a bit like Hannibal, just screams day spa. Mood set, bubble bath run, what more can a girl ask for?
AFTER THE PARTY IS THE AFTER PARTY: After my ultra relaxing bath I find my skin oh so soft, and literally smelling sooooooo good, I wish that this was a everyday soap. Lather on a bit of body lotion to my limbs, grab my favorite perfume which at the moment it is a bit of a toss up between this and this, grab my favorite lipstick and head out ready to take on the day. Mission complete- at home spa day- a success!
So there you have it, a simple easy at home pampering session with the feel of the actual day spa. Soft skin, buibble bath, a hint of fizz and the sweet smells of lavender and ylang ylang- you cant go wrong with a bit of help from LUSH. The month of February might be for lovers, but I think the month of February should be about luxury baths and pampering yourself- Who else is in the mood for a bath? Are you with me?
