Pampering and De-stressing

I'm feeling a bit down in the dumps as our dog is in the vets for two whole days, she went in yesterday with kidney problems and they are running tests :(


I decided last night to have a pamper evening to try and take my mind of things and de-stress.  This is what I used:


Hair: Finally got round to using the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque - its gorgeous, super moisturising, smells so nice and leaves my hair shiny, smooth and in great condition - I reckon I'll get at least 2-3 uses out of this.

Face: I've just discovered the sheet masks having got some swaps and mystery boxes.  This one is fab, scented with roses with Vitamin E and Collagen.  It left my skin super moisturised and plumped up.  I received this one from Evelyn at We were raised by wolves.

Body: I picked up the relatively new Aveda Stress-Fix Soaking Salts yesterday - it was a toss up between them and the body lotion (but with my current stash of body lotions I went for the salts).  They smell amazing - with oils of lavender, lavandin and clary sage along with sugar and mineral rich salts.  To use - sprinkle in approx 2 tablespoons and soak for 10-20 minutes.  These are really relaxing.  Huge pot so should last a while.


Hubby came in with Bentley Organic Lavender, Aloe & Jojoba Soap which is calming & moisturising, smells great and helps to promote relaxation.


I moisturised my body with Weleda Lavender Relaxing Body Oil a lovely oil for relaxation and calm.


(not in picture) but when I got to bed I listened to Meaningful Meditation CD Jude's voice is really soothing and calming and makes me feel so relaxed (and without a care in the world!).  If you want to purchase a CD yourself Jude's contact details are here.


And I had a great worry free sleep and slept in! x
