Have you ever had one of those days or even weeks where you just feel so stressed and beat that you feel a desperate need to pick yourself up but don’t know how? I have had my share of such days and for the most part, couldn’t for the life of me figure out how I could make myself feel better. I am a firm believer of “you look good, you feel good” and so when I was feeling all sorts of beat and barely hanging on one night, I decided to treat myself to a lovely and yet simple morning routine each morning before work.
Now I must admit, being a mother of 2 young children, my week mornings can be a bit stressful to say the least, so planning ahead is essential. I knew I was going to need more time to pamper myself in the morning, so I prepared everything I would need before I went to bed. I checked my kid’s school bags and picked out our shoes and clothes. The next morning, I got up 30 minutes earlier than I would normally do and pampered myself with some yummy beauty products. I dropped my kids off at school feeling so refreshed and ready to take on the day.
Luxurious Body Cream for The Soul
I know that my new feel good morning routine is very simple, but trust me it works. I started off with a shower like I do everyday so nothing new there, except this time I used Shea Shower Cream by The Body Shop®. You will be amazed by how switching out your usual daily shower gel for something like Shea shower cream will give your spirits a confident boost for the day.
Now if you are anything like me, then you’ll probably appreciate the power of using body cream on your skin during winter to prevent dryness. The Indian Night Jasmine body cream from The Body Shop® is the perfect cream for dry skin and smells absolutely divine. It’s a rich creamy butter that will leave dry skin feeling soft, supple, and re-juvinated. And the mild fragrance lasts all day. It is by far the best body cream I have ever used!
I’m a great fan of perfumes and body mists. My favourite fragrances normally contain Sandalwood, Shea (nutty scent) or Jasmine – clean and sweet (not bubblegum sweet). I would normally skip this step in my ‘normal’ work day morning routine, but spritzing myself with a body mist has now become a vital part of my daily morning ritual.
Oh the power of makeup! Lancôme’s Nuit Mordoré eyeshadow palette is a dream. The warm copper shades, shimmery champagne shade, and teal all blend so well together to give you a light clean and classy makeup look. The palette came with very easy to follow instructions on how to apply the different shades to the different parts of the eye area.
So there you have it! My simple feel good morning routine. It’s so simple it can be treated as a normal ‘get ready’ for work routine and I must say that I love it.
