One of the many things that I will never take for granted when I am home and not on the road. Simple … Products..
When I am home and it is time to get ready for bed and I have access to every lotion, potion and essential oil, I am in heaven. It all feels so decadant. There is something about the process that takes me to a state of total relaxation. I love to carefully mix the right scents, so I sleep like a baby. A couple nights a week, I light some candles, but some essential oils in my tub, put on a face mask and just relax. I either play spa like music or like last night, I watch hoops while I a soaking in the tub.
Once I know I am getting to the point where I need to get out of the tub and get ready for bed, I allow time for all of the extras on my skin. I layer products, serums, creams and oils on my face and I love to mix some almond oil in with my lotion for my body.
There was a time, many years ago, where I packed excessively on the road, wanting to have all of the comforts of home with me. That was also back in the same time when you could tip a sky cap and get a ton of bags that weighed a ton on the plane no problem. Those were different times. Now, I pack simple when I am on the road, I have all of the basics with me and know that when I get home, I can pamper myself every night with all of my products. It makes being home even more special.
I love how the simple things in life, like being home and relaxing with some pampering, can be a combo of beautiful magic and bliss..
