There’s nothing like a day of treating yourself. Whether it be a day where you go out with some of your girl friends or just staying in. I have some tips for doing both!
When I stay in there are a few things that I love doing for myself. You can either spend the day by yourself or you can invite over your friends. The most obvious thing you need in order to treat yourself are treats! If you like to indulge, go out and get some Ben & Jerry’s. If you prefer to eat something that will make you feel good inside, eat some watermelon or strawberries!
The next thing on my list are masks. I am very into sheet masks right now. You can buy them almost anywhere, but my favorite are from Sephora. You can find them here! They look insane on but they are so amazing! You only have to wear them for 15 minutes and when you take them off you don’t even have to rinse your face. While I am wearing it I will read a book (I am currently reading Looking for Alaska) or catch up on some YouTube videos. There are sheet masks for your face, hands, lips, etc,. I love the sheet masks for your lips (here)! They are sold out online right now but I am able to find them in stores. They are so hydrating and feel spectacular after wearing heavy lip products.
Another way to pamper yourself is with mani/pedis. You can go out and get one or you can do them yourself (which I recommend). If you can do it yourself or have a friend do it, there’s no reason to spend money. There are so many videos on YouTube with awesome ideas and don’t forget about Pinterest (my nail board)! Here are some of my favorite videos for painting your nails (1, 2, 3,). Make sure to check out all of the videos by Cute Polish.
If you are sick of being home and just need to get out of the house, there are plenty of things to do! A personal favorite of mine is retail therapy AKA shopping! So I love to plan a day to go out and shop til I drop. This requires a full day for me since I have to travel for any stores! However, this is not something that I can do that often. So there are several other options that aren’t as expensive.
Movies! You can find a movie at a theater in every town. My favorite types of movies are comedies! I am really looking forward to seeing Bad Moms and The Secret Life of Pets. If you are spending a day with your girls, romance movies are always a top pick. There is no popcorn as good as movie popcorn! So grab some there or sneak in some snacks in your big bag, that’s what I do. 😉 This is be super cheap if you only buy your tickets at the movie, but if you feel like splurging- buy that large popcorn & drink girl!
Go on a coffee date! Whether it is Starbucks or your towns local coffee shop. (My favorite Starbucks drink is the Java Chip Frappuccino [diy here] & my favorite local drink is a frozen hot chocolate with a pump of marshmallow). You can go with a friend and catch up or you can take your laptop to work on things or a good book to read. It is a nice relaxing thing to do that only costs around $5. Totally worth it!
Exercise. I know a lot of people, me included, would not consider this as a ‘treat’ but it can be! Now you can go to the gym and get a crazy workout or watch YouTube videos and do an at home workout. I love to go on walks or bike rides with my friends or mom. I live right down from the park so we walk there. You can also go for a walk with your dogs! Depending on where you go/what you do, this can be completely free!
**You can do any of these things at home or out of the house! You can watch a movie at home, make your own coffee, and get a facial done by a professional. These are just my personal favorite things to do!
