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.

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
