"Me Time"

This post is sponsored by Target.

Today, I'm going to give you a little peek into how I have "me time." As a mom who works from home, things can get hectic sometimes. I get caught up cleaning, taking care of the kids, editing and emails, and sometimes I forget about me. It can be really easy to do. When I was younger, before I had children, I had all the time in the world to pamper myself, take long baths, get massages, go to the salon and just spend hours doing my hair and makeup. I don't have that kind of time now. So when I want a little "me time," it's much less involved than it used to be, but it's still just as amazing.

It's funny how life changes!

Nowadays, my "me time" is taking a long, hot shower by myself once the kids go to bed. Simple right? But it's so nice. No interruptions. Just me and the hot water and some lovely products to help pamper my skin and hair. I can take as much time as I want in there. Shave my legs, wash my hair, exfoliate my body and step out feeling like a human being again! Haha!

Here are the items I used last night to make me feel pampered in my very own home. All of these items can be found at your local Target. Plus, they all smell AMAZING!

The first thing I do is wash my hair with the Proganix Anti Fade Cheery Blossom Shampoo & Conditioner. I have to be honest: I kind of picked this up because the packaging is gorgeous! Haha! I'm a sucker for pink and gold. This smells so gorgeous too. But it's actually a really nice shampoo and conditioner. It's sulfate-free, so it doesn't lather a huge amount, but it leaves your hair feeling clean and very soft. The conditioner does a really great job at detangling and leaving hair silky smooth. I always make sure to leave my conditioner on while I exfoliate, shave, wash, etc. So be sure to do this first so your hair is really getting a good conditioning treatment.

Next, I use Boots Extracts Mango Sugar Scrub. You all know I grew up in England and absolutely love Boots. So it makes me so happy that Target carries this brand. Their products smell amazing and feel really moisturizing on the skin. The mango is heavenly! I like to exfoliate my skin once a week before I self-tan to ensure that I will get the most even, glowy self-tan possible. It also helps to get rid of all of the dead skin cells and old self-tan that is still on your skin. I use mine with an exfoliating glove. 


Once I've exfoliated and shaved, I use the Boots Extracts Mango Body Wash. Again, this smells so delicious. I just want to eat it! Haha! It's a very moisturizing formula that leaves your skin feeling super hydrated. I also wash my face in the shower with the Acure Facial Cleansing Gel. This smells like citrus and lathers really well. It's a gel formula that leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean, but not tight or dry.

It's a super simple routine, but it just feels so nice at the end of a long day to have taken a little quiet time to yourself. After that, I apply my self-tanner, let my hair air dry and go and edit the vlog. It's my little half-hour of me time, and it always makes me feel so much better.

How cute is this dish? I found it at Target in the dollar section. It's actually a candle holder, but you could use it to store your favorite skin-care products, Q-tips or lip gloss, or use it for its purpose and light a nice candle and take a hot bath and relax.

Don't forget to check out your local Target to find all the items I showed in this post, as well as many more amazing products to help you feel relaxed and fabulous!

  2. Me siento tan bendecido de nuevo en mi matrimonio después de que el Doctor ODUMODU trajo a mi esposo que se separó de mí por un buen año. Soy ALENNA por nombre de RUMANIA. Aunque tengo la boca por todo el cuerpo, no será suficiente agradecer al Doctor ODUMODU por su ayuda en mi vida. Mi esposo se separó de mí por un año y ha estado en dolores y agonía sin él. Entonces, busqué ayuda en todas partes, pero nada funcionó hasta que me referí al Doctor ODUMODU. Le expliqué mi situación y me prometió que mi esposo me responderá dentro de las 48 horas tan lejos que mi corazón aún late por él. Creí en él y él preparó un marido me llamó exactamente cuando el doctor ODUMODU sacóptó. Él suplicó y dijo que él me necesita de vuelta y ahora estamos viviendo feliz nuevamente durante las últimas 9 bocas. Todos los que estén leyendo mi artículo que necesita ayuda deben contactarlo ...
