Staying refreshed can be difficult, especially if you have a busy schedule. It is important to spend some extra time treating yourself to a bit of pampering. There are plenty of ways that you can spend time relaxing. Here are some ideas to help you unwind at the end of a long day.
Soak in a Hot Bath
Taking a hot bubble bath can be incredibly relaxing. Many bath pillows are available that have suction cups that attach to the bathtub. Using a bath pillow will help you lean back comfortably and enjoy the warm water. You can also try to use a bath bomb with a relaxing scent, such as lavender, as part of your bath. Bath bombs are available in many scents, and these scents can invigorate your senses and help you relax. Many people enjoy reading a favorite novel or magazine while relaxing in a warm bath.
Give Yourself a Manicure
You can also give yourself a manicure as a way to unwind. After you are finished with your bath, gently push your cuticles back. Cover your nails with a natural nail base coat and follow this with your favorite color of nail polish. You may also want to give yourself a pedicure. You can try a variety of colors or techniques to enhance the appearance of your nails. For example, you can choose to polish your nails slightly different hues of the same color. Adding white tips on the end of nails can create an incredibly sophisticated style.
Use a Facial Mask
Many facial masks are available that offer ingredients that can soothe and refresh your skin. Applying a facial mask can help exfoliate your skin and get rid of dead skin cells. When you rinse the mask off, your skin will feel clean and smooth. The mask can help your skin gain important nutrients and vitamins that promote healthy skin.
Try to set aside time at least once a week to pamper yourself. Doing some of these spa services at home is easy and affordable. You will be delighted with the revitalized feeling you have after you have a chance to relax.
I guess there’s no doubt Gwen Stefani is among the world’s most stylish celebrities. I just love how versatile her fashion statement is. She can go from badass to sweet without hurting my eyes. But generally when I think of Gwen Stefani, I think of platinum hair, red luscious lips, fierce eyes and No Doubt some sexy top showing her sexy abs! Well, this time, Gwen’s nails will be the center of the attraction as leading Nail Color brand O.P.I collaborates with the No Doubt front singer. O.P.I’s brand new line “standout color in breakthrough finishes”
This collection of nail polish is created to celebrate “the role of music as a major influence in fashion” and is said to reflect the the 2013 Met Gala theme, “Punk: Chaos to Couture”. Gwen Stefani will definitely represent this perfectly. The collection will have mattes and glossies and glitters *Insert my giggly, excited face here*. The 7 nail polish are the Hey Baby, I Sing In Color, Love.Angel.Music.Baby, 4 In The Morning, In True Stefani Fashion and Push & Shove. The line’s signature shade, Over & Over A-Gwen (a red to rival Stefani’s perma-rouge pout) will also be available as a box set which will come with fun things like Swarovski black crystals and silver, gold and pewter studs! I am just soooo excited!
Gwen Stefani x OPI is expected to hit the shelves in January 2014.
