My Own Self-Care Routine

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 5 Comments A+ a-


So I've seen many and I mean many post about how each individual likes to spend their free time, their very own self care routine and in no disrespect to any of these posts of the people who wrote them, but there is also of generic things on there and all mostly the same thing.

Self-care is about pampering yourself, taking out the time to do the thins you like, to calm yourself to just enjoy your own company. Now I'm not saying mine is any better or the right way but I thought I'd share with you my ideal self-care day. 


First things first, I am a crisps lover, I can fully eat 40 packets of crisps in one sitting, no word of a lie, so that would so be my first thing to do. Open up the laptop and eat packets upon packets of crisps as I browse around.

Also, who remembers Nik Naks? I used to have these after school all the time, but these appeared in my house the other day and now they're gone ;)


If you know me, you'll know that my nails are probably my most liked feature of myself, but I am one lazy shit head when it comes to looking after them, so when I do have time to myself or like now when I want to have a little pamper session, this is my go-to thing as it is a serious once in a blue moon moment.

I would love to always have my nails perfectly painted every week, but I honesty never have the time to, so this is really something I love doing when I have the chance and makes me super happy and fresh when it's done. Great satisfaction and accomplishment feeling.


Here comes the big shocker! Netflix!

I'm not a TV watcher, I don't sit in front of the TV at a certain time to watch certain series or episode at the time it's being shown on the TV. This is why Netflix and On Demand are my best friends, as I never feel like I have the time to do anything, I always go to Netflix on my spare time, even sitting on the toilet to throw a quick episode on because it's just that great for on the go, as well as having that serious binge moment, you know, eating more crisps and that.

Just simply having that time to yourself to enjoy and be in your own little word for a while.

Of course I have that very very rare bath with candles, when I'm in the mood I read a book and when I'm feeling inspired I write 3 blog posts in one night. So there it is, my ideal self care routine, not your typical routine but it's what I do and what makes me happy to do these very simple little things.

What is your ideal self-care routine?

This sounds like such a lovely, relaxing day! I'm a big fan of comfort food as part of self-care. I often get myself a green tea latte from Starbucks, since it's my favorite and sort of a splurge.

Reading is a big thing for me as well -- spending a few hours lost in a book really recharges me!

I LOVE painting my nails as a part of my self-care routine. It's really such a zen practice! I'll also opt for a moisturizing face mask and a cup of herbal tea. I feel like most of my self-care days are spent trying to slow things down around me; everything is so fast-paced nowadays. I try to get outside if it's nice out just to smell some fresh air.
