Pamper Me Pretty


Happy mid-week, loves!  Can't believe it's actually Wednesday already.  I thought it was going to be a very long week but luckily that doesn't seem to be the case.  I'm managing to keep myself occupied thanks to you. :)

When I mentioned on Monday that J would be away for the week quite a few of you said to take this time to be really girlie and pamper myself.  I have to admit that's not too much of a stretch for me.  I'm quite the girlie girl...I mean I work in the beauty industry so I'm sure you can imagine one doesn't have to twist my arm to covince me to do a little extra primping.

Think tonight's the perfect night for a stop at the salon for a spa mani/pedi and massage.  Then I'll head on home, poor myself a glass of vino and really take the pampering up a notch.

I'll start by indulging in a couple of masks, one for face & one for hair.  For hair I love Fekkai's Shea Butter Hair Mask and for face my absolute favorite is Givenchy Black For Light Mask.  It's the coolest texture ever and it does wonders for my skin.  My other favorite standby face mask is Fresh's Sugar Face Polish.  It smells divine and I love that my skin get's a double dose beauty treatment.  A great exfoliation and super nourishing treatment in one. Not quite sure which one I'll go with.  I'll just decide on the fly.

And after all that primping I think the perfect way to end the evening is with a long, super soothing, relaxing bath.  Sounds heavenly, doesn't it? Ah 5pm can't come quick enough!

Enjoy the day, sweets and I hope you're all able to squeeze in a little pampering time as well!

xoxo

Sounds divine Dawn! I could seriously do with some pampering right now!! I love having facials - the ultimate way to relax for me. I have a friend coming over tonight for a girlie catch up, so my primping will have to be put on hold...you've inspired me!!
Happy Wednesday Hun xoxo

About Last Weekend said...

I love the look of that eyelet! My pampering consists of eating mostly and I'm currently thinking of a steaming bowl of Pho!

Leslie said...

Well... I can believe its already Wednesday because it's been a long week and there will be no fun for me tonight because I'm having my annual blood draw tomorrow (pass out just thinking about it ... Blah) and I have to fast for 12 hours. When you turn 40 that's when all these dr appointments start. .. and those mammograms... must they press my breast in to a pancake?

That first picture is gorgeous - so sexy and that tub is perfect for a bubble bath. Need to check those links ;)

Dancing Branflake said...

At the resort this weekend, they had an amazing spa. I didn't partake in any of it, but the whole time I was thinking, "Dawn would totally do the whole shebang!" Your pampering sounds so wonderful. Makes me wish I could go back and do some myself.

Fashion Tales said...

Aha, so glad that you decided to pamper yourself, even if it's not too much of a stretch ... I understand! Sounds like you're having a pretty good time. I think I may take my own advice and do the same on the weekend. :) -xo
