Girlsssssss, lemme tell you. Life is funny. The minute you think you’re on a roll, things switch up on you. Our family has been battling the flu on steroids around here. I guess I’m due. I haven’t been this sick in yearsssss and man, this thing just about took me out. Being sick, plus nursing a sick baby, a sick toddler and a husband with the man flu (the regular flu but somehow it’s worse when men get it…ha!) has drained me completely. Before all of this went down, I had finally gotten into a new little routine. Thanks to the Amopé™, of course…
Said routine starts with disconnecting. I’m sorry but I get zero relaxation with my phone buzzing and lighting up. I have to completely remove myself from everything tech. And truthfully, we should all make the attempt to do this every now and then. It’s SO refreshing.
Also included in my routine? Making it a kid-free zone. While EB and I do enjoy our weekly beauty dates, when it comes to mama’s beauty regimen, there are no kids allowed. Since my littles don’t exactly understand boundaries right now, my regimens are only happening when both kids are in bed. I revel in this time, y’all. I LOVE this time.
And then mama sip some tea and plays some tunes. I’ve already expressed how much I loooooove tea and nothing sets the mood more than a cup of Honeybush with a dash of honey, lemon and cinnamon. I like to take sips while giving myself a pedicure and honestly, if you looked up the word relaxation in my Dictionary, you would see a picture of this.
It’s sheer bliss, I tell you. Now more than ever, I really fight hard to maintain my happiness. It’s not easy. Most days are a complete whirlwind of everyone else’s needs and I’m usually putting myself last. Not on purpose, of course. When your kids are this little, they REALLY need you. I get it. I picked this life and I have no problem (uh, most days) making them a priority but that doesn’t mean I can’t hold tightly to my beauty and happiness.
Plus, since I just don’t have the time to get away for a pedicure, Amopé™ Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry Electronic Cordless Foot File is needed and appreciated right now.
What about you?
What kind of things are included in your beauty regimen?
