Self-Care: A Few Of the Things I’m Indulging In!

Sharing is caring!

So, if you have been following closely, I have been a huge self-care kick. Doing the little things that make me happy- outside of work. Taking care of little things that bother me about myself & more… so I did a little video to share some of my faves, new items, and what I am doing to love on myself a little more!

As a part of my “Walk In IT” theme for the year… this is one of the steps I need to take for me, to confidently walk in my purpose, blessing, and in my truth! I have to know Who I am, What I need, and HOW I need to be loved and this starts with me… right? I mean, I knew a little bit, but being able to share confidently and comfortably, what I need and how I need it? Takes a bit of practice and time…

And for me, it starts with a little self-loving or as my therapist calls it, “Mothering.”

So I sought out to look for a few things that would help me along the way and as I share in the video, these are a few of the self-care things that are helping me get my life and mind right!

A Few Of the Things I’m Indulging In!

Goal: Maintaining great sleep habits

New Bed? Check. New Pillows? Check. New Sheet set? Check. But what self-care item helps me fall asleep that much faster? This Fade to Black Pillow spray from Goodnight Darling Co.​! It is seriously and deliciously intoxicating… I seriously drift to bed so fast, sometimes forgetting to put my TV on sleep! Hehehehe

Goal: Taking time to relax

Girl. I dream of an amazing bubble bath, but sometimes (or oftentimes) keep talking myself out of it. Opting for a Lavender shower instead. BUT now that I have this Red Poppy & Hemp Pure Bliss Bath Salt, baaaaaaby, I may need to run this bath water immediately! You hear?

Goal: Work on my hyperpigmentation from shaving

No matter what I have done in the past, I still get dark spots from shaving…BUT I recently saw the before and after images of folks using the My Skin​ products and had to give this a whirl. I am horrible about sticking to something, but part of this self-care process is being intentional and disciplined with this. So I have the My Skin Liquid Treatment Roll-On and the After the Wax After the Razor Women’s Cream to help me on my journey to clearer, smoother, and bump free skin!

Keep my skin bright and vibrant

You know… I am about to be 36 this year and I cannot lie, I am a bit hypersensitive with my skin and the care I take for it. In addition of trying to up my water intake, lowering my sugar intake, I have been testing out a few of the products from Vitabrid USA​, a new Vitamin C product line! Currently, I am rocking out with this Vitabrid C12 FACE BRIGHTENING Powder that provides: Skin brightening, Improves skin tone/texture, Skin rejuvenation, Reduce fine lines/wrinkles. So far, I see subtle changes and as I continue incorporating this as part of my self-care routine, I hope to rock out with a confident complexion!

Goal: Exfoliate and create a better skin regimen

Girl, I told you that I am on a self-care mission! Rather than talk about it, I need to be about it and walk in it, riiight? Right. So the last item that I am talking about and that I am playing with, is my new Dew Puff! I am always here for daily gentle exfoliation… always.
