Why you should treat yourself regularly

*Collaborative post.

It is very important to treat yourself every now and again. We spend so much time working and taking care of others that we sometimes forget to take good care of ourselves. I know we mums are so guilty of this. We spend hours taking care of the children and running the home, neglecting ourselves in the process.  I am guilty of putting myself last almost every time. Life gets so busy with stuff that needs doing and it is super easy to care for yourself. We forget that for us to be our best, we have to feel good and treat ourselves regularly.

This post is a reminder for you to take care of yourself and treat yourself to some luxuries from time to time. If you wondering how you should treat yourself regularly, here are some ideas you may like.

 

Buy yourself that jewellery

Diamonds are a woman’s best friend, and it is a lovely way of treating yourself. I recently came across Chapelle Jewellers and I fell in love with their amazing selection of jewellery and watches. I would love to spoil myself with some diamond earrings in future. Earrings are my favourite kind of jewellery. They are so precious and I like investing in them because I wear them pretty much everyday.

Buying yourself jewellery is a great way to treat yourself if you are into earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, rings and the rest.

 

Book yourself in for a massage

I love having a massage. It leaves me relaxed and ready to get on with what needs doing. Having regular massages is a way to treat yourself. It may be pricey to get an hour’s massage (anything else is too short) but it does a lot of good for your physical and mental health.

I am badly in need of a full body massage. I have not had one in awhile thanks to the busy summer holidays. So I will be booking a session in the next few days when we go on holiday.

Go on holiday

Holidays are expensive which is why so many people hardly go anywhere these days, but they don’t necessarily have to be. Holidays are a nice way to treat yourself. It doesn’t have to be anything luxurious or even outside the country. There are lots of cheap staycations available that would do wonders for your state of mind.

It is always a good idea to get out of the house for a bit and go somewhere different. Just being out of your home and away from your regular routine is a way to treat yourself. We have a couple of staycations planned this year and I am so looking forward to them. Holidays are a necessity and not a luxury.

 

Alone time

Being by yourself is a great way to unwind. I love my alone time a lot. Trips to the cinema by myself are amazing. I also love going for walks and shopping alone. The time alone gives me time to relax and think clearly. This is easily done when the kiddies are in school, so I make the most of it then.

How I moisturise my natural hair

*Affiliate links.

I transitioned from texturised hair to natural hair about 5 years ago, and I have no regrets. My hair is strong and healthy, and I love how it looks. When I had texturised hair, my hair was horrible. I had no edges and my hair was breaking a lot. It was so weak and unhealthy, and I couldn’t stand the sight of it anymore. I was tired on hiding it underneath hair extensions that only made my hair condition worse, so I decided to embark on the long road to freedom – natural hair route.

The journey has been long and hard but so worth it. It took me a long time to figure out hair products that worked great for my coarse hair. I tried all sorts of products and I am still trying new products regularly. In my search of trying out new products, I came across the amazing Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil, Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream and some great Sheamoisture Hair Care products. I use SheaMoisture Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Masquwe every 2 weeks and these products help create the right foundation for the rest of my hair care products. 

Before stumbling on these products, I have used lots of shampoos, conditioners, masques, oils and leave in conditioners. But my current hair care products mentioned above are the best for my hair type. They are so good for natural hair protective hairstyles too!

You can watch me in the video use Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil and  Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream. These products help me moisturise my natural hair beautifully, making it soft and manageable. They also help my hair grow and stay healthy. I can’t see myself ever not using this oil and leave in conditioner. They are the best hair products I have tried in a long time. Do watch the video and tell me what you think of these haircare products and how I moisturise my natural hair.  You can follow my YouTube Channel for more updates. 

 

 

Review – PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox

*Affiliate link.

I mentioned in my last parenting post that my twins had chickenpox in the last few days of the school term. It was horrible but thankfully they have recovered fully. We used a couple of products to deal with the spots and keep them comfy. One of the products we used was PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox.

The kiddies used this product multiple times a day for around 2 weeks. We ended up buying 3 packs of PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox. It is a pricey product. We found it a lot more expensive than many others products for chicken pox, but it did the work.

 

Product Description

It contains a unique bioactive bacterial blocker for an effective treatment to sooth the itch, to recondition the skin and to help prevent scar tissue formation.

CONS

None. I can’t fault this product. It was a life saver for us. The only bit I didn’t really like was the price tag. The bottle is only 100ml so we went through each bottle quickly. However, I quickly understood why it was more expensive than other products for chickenpox, after trying some others.

I recommend PoxClin to anyone who has chicken with chickenpox. This product must the ordeal a lot easier. It is a very effective product and it does all it promises to do.
