how do you pamper yourself

For Mother's Day, I took my mom and my sister to get pedicures. It's one of my favorite ways to pamper myself -- not only do my toes end up looking pretty, but I get a foot massage, too. We had a great day.

CafeMom MOMMYKNS0328 asked the community what are some of the ways you pamper yourself? The answers gave me some great ideas.

  • 2wndrfl_btrflys said when she needs a day to herself, she gets her hair shampooed, cut, and styled. Then she goes out to lunch or meets a friend to go shopping -- even if it's just window shopping.
  • jmoran goes to the Hershey Spa in Pennsylvania every couple of months. She said nothing will completely relax you like a chocolate scrub, massage, and lunch.
  • Fistandantalus makes all her own skin care products, so she has top-shelf stuff without the top-shelf price! 
  • lbranta takes a nice hot bath with Calgon, lights some candles, and burns some incense. She relaxes in tub for about an hour.

These are all such great ideas. What about you? How do you like to pamper yourself?

Honestly, I know this sounds dumb...but I go fishing  by myself. lol. I love fishing, and I love it when I don't have to think about anything except fishing. No distractions, just sittin' by myself anticipating the next big fish I'll catch. It's relaxing for me... Now I go to the gym also, it makes me feel better about myself and I get time away from home....

Every night after the boys are all in bed, I will run my bath water, fill it with bubbles/oils, get my wine, and play my favorite music. This relaxes me before I go to bed. At times I will either read a book or watch home movies while in the tub. That is my get away every night.

There is nothing better to me than have a professional "blow-out" -- plus, I just love having my hair brushed. I like to get together with a girlfriend or two and do each other's makeup or toes or hair, too.

I am a married mom of two beautiful children and I rarely go out without the family. When I need some ME TIME, I go get my hair done, eyebrows done, (not the nails bcause my daughter has hair down to her butt and has to get it done at least twice a day) a quick stop to New York and Company, and sometimes lunch all by myself. I feel so refreshed after that and it even gets my adrenaline pumping.

What wonderful ideas you all have!  I have to ways...if it  is a "must stay home" time I am in the hot tub with some kind of stress relief product in tub, only candle light and my MP3 player. If I can take a day...I drive to the beach with chair and backpack  and spend the day! Treat myself to coffees and lunch! Nothing like a walk or nap on the beach!

I love getting the chance to go to Michael's or a bead store and shop my heart out. I also love to treat myself to a yummy salad or Mexican food, a Jamba Juice smoothie, eyebrow waxing and a pedicure. Hopefully I'll be able to get a chance to do that this weekend.

I'm a married woman with 2 kids. A 21 month old and an almost 2 wk old....and when they are both asleep I'll either curl up in bed and watch t.v or I'll hop in a nice warm bubble bath. I don't really go out to pamper myself because money is tight right now.

I GET MY NAILS AND FEET DONE EVERY 3 WEEKS , WITH DESIGNS AND STONES THAT BLING ALOT AND IT MAKES ME FEEL PRETTY AND THEY STAND OUT . I ALSO GO GET MYSELF SOME CLOTHES OR A NEW DRESS OR SHOES .

I Love the bubble bath or oil bath. 30 min. or 40 min. All to myself, sounds like a song. LOL A pedicure with my daughter, and a girls lunch and a movie. Since my near death experience ( I D A ) I have a lot more me time.

I pamper myself by using THE best moisturizer ever.


It's made by our own Fistandantalus!!!


Seriously, she should package and sell this stuff.
