Hey Ladies

Our lives these days are so busy and hectic, sometimes i really feel like i am on a treadmill and can’t get off. There are so many things we woman balance in our everyday life; work, family, kids, social life etc. At times when i really feel like i need to step back and get a breather, i like to pamper myself. Call me selfish but it’s the only thing i feel that recharges my battery a bit and gives me some emotional boost to get up and do life. I first discovered Rituals  during my trip to Switzerland and instantly got swept away by its indulging and calming store. They give you a complimentary hand scrub and serve you Asian tea. They have the perfect self-care products you will need to relax, reboot and recharge.

Taking care of certain parts of your body can instantly relieve some stress. I personally get cramped up in my hands very often, especially when i spend a lot of time at a computer or writing, my hands cramp and feel tense. I Pay extra attention when its winter season where my skin tends to be rough and dry. A simple hand massage with my favorite handcream makes me calm and relaxed. I currently use the rituals miracle balm and apply it whenever i need a feel good moment. This luxurious hand balm has been specially developed to soothe and soften dry hands.

Making my home a luxury retreat

Home is important when it comes to enjoying time for you; aka me-time. What you keep in your home influences the way you feel when stepping into a room. Surround yourself with things that put your mind at ease, make you feel happy and that will trigger a sense of calm. I love burning some Candles and displaying diffusers that smell heavenly. Swap your basic home items with a luxury item. For example, i bought the Rituals Sakura hand soap and use it as my go to hand wash. That little change makes my home fell more like a retreat.


What are some things you do to relax? What are your must have pampering items? How do you destress? i would love to hear your thoughts on this
