Friday Favorites: Staycation Essentials

July 21, 2017 1 Comment

To celebrate our new collection launching, this Friday Favorites features some new products that you'll see in the shop Wednesday. Many of you have been asking for gifts that encourage relaxation, pampering, and little luxuries. So, I've created a line of gifts that allow everyone to enjoy a little escape right at home. 

Think of this new collection as a way to honor the special ladies in your life...whether it be a celebratory gesture, or a much needed pick-me-up.

And if you just can't wait until next Wednesday, here are 9 quick and easy ways to turn tonight into a mini staycation. 

9 easy ways to create a staycation tonight

1. Draw a hot bath and add some bath salts or a bath fizz (my favorites are included in the new collection!).

2. Pop open that special bottle of wine you've been saving. Come on, just go for it.

3. Grab or make a spa-like dinner. I love this one from Camille Styles. And don't forget to treat yourself to some dessert. If you're a Dallasite, pop into Bird Bakery and grab a little something sweet.

4. Create an at-home face mask if you don't use one regularly. I have oily skin, so I combine an egg yolk, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and 1/2 cup of oatmeal. Leave it on your face for 15-20 minutes and remove with warm water (and moisturize!).

5. Make some spa water with san pellegrino and cucumber, or a refreshing mocktail like this grapefruit lime spritzer. If you want something more soothing than refreshing, make a cup of hot tea.

6. Burn a candle. Scent plays such a huge role in relaxation. My favorite candle right now is Maison Louis Marie's L'Etang Noir (psst...available in the shop on Wednesday!).

7. Stop by the store and grab a big stack of magazines. Flipping through magazines is my favorite way to spend "me time."

8. Put on a pair of soft pajamas or a robe...and just relax. 

9. Invite your best girls over and make it a party!
