Treating Yo'Self this Valentine's Day

Our lives often feel like a seemingly endless cycle of school, work, and stress. Sometimes you need to just take one day and pamper yourself. Instead of moping around on Valentine’s Day, reconnect with your lifelong love-- yourself (also Netflix).

DIY Bath Bombs:

Bath bombs have taken over the Internet in the form of memes and Instagram pictures. Now, I have never used one, but I’ve read everywhere that they are incredible. The price, however, not so much. They can range from $5-$10, which isn’t so bad, until you come to the register and find out that now you owe Lush $50. But have no fear because here's a super easy do-it-yourself bath bomb.

Candles

When I think of relaxation, a candle pops to mind. They smell absolutely incredible and are basically the best thing ever invented. Bath and Body Works is essentially candle heaven, besides Yankee Candle, and my favorite is Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut. It makes me cry, it smells so amazing. 10/10 would recommend.

Face Masks

In these below-freezing temperatures, dry skin has become a MAJOR problem. But these masks from The Fashion Spot will rid you of your dry skin with only a couple of ingredients. If dry skin isn’t your problem but blackheads are, try whisking two egg whites with 1 tsp of lemon juice and apply after you’ve washed your face with a mild cleanser. Peel off the mask after 15-20 minutes and watch as those blackheads disappear.

Nail polish

Who needs a man when you have a mani? If, like me, your painting skills aren’t particularly up to par, try using Sally Hansen Nail Stickers for that perfect manicure, without all the waiting and screw-ups. They generally run around $7-$10.

Hair Mask

If your hair hasn't been feeling as fabulous as you are, try these masks that will have you feeling oh-so-fabulous.

Music

Lastly, a true spa day isn't complete without the perfect playlist. Here are a few of my faves, just to get ya started.

  • Anything Sam Smith 
  • Just A Little Bit of Your Heart - Ariana Grande
  • Who Are You - Fifth Harmony
  • I See Fire - Ed SHeeran
  • Gasoline - Troye Sivan
  • The Only Exception - Paramore
  • 18 - One Direction

In closing, as the Internet so aptly puts it-- Treat Yo’Self.
