Treat Yo’ Self

Question:

What do you call a bee that can’t make up its mind?

Punchline:

A maybe.

 

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d compile a little list of some of my favorite ways of treating myself. I think self-care is super important especially in the busy lives that me and my peers tend to lead. It becomes increasingly easy to neglect the little things in order to fulfill exterior obligations and please others but it’s really difficult to give the best of yourself when you’re not feeling quite your best. There are some things that I have found so essential to keeping a positive mindset that they have become a part of my routine while other things I just indulge in once in awhile. Either way, it’s important to keep taking care of yourself on your “to do” list, no matter how long it gets.

 

Skin Care:

This is a category that I definitely consider essential and take care of every day. I just don’t think it’s possible to feel your best if your skin isn’t keeping up. Also, my skin tends to be the first indicator of my stress level so paying extra attention to it during times when I have too much on my plate is always worth it in the long run.

 

Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser-

This stuff has been a true miracle for my oily skin, serving to both dry it out and keep my skin clear.

Formula 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Moisturizer-

I love using this on no-makeup days which tend to happen often when I have a lot going on.

Farmacy Sleep Tight Night Balm-

A quick coat of this before I go to bed and I’m guaranteed to wake up with glowing skin.

 

Clothing:

Lately, I have found some great pieces in places I wouldn’t expect. They’re styles I have been drooling over at places like Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters but resented the price tag so when I found them at these prices, I just couldn’t resist.

 

SO Sherpa Zip-Up Jacket from Kohls-

Since buying this jacket I have worn it every day, and I only wish this was an exaggeration. It’s sherpa on the inside and outside making it a real treat for you as the wearer and anyone hugging you.

These shoes are not only extremely trendy but also surprisingly comfortable. They’re perfect for professional settings when you want to add a little edge to a business look.
