Don’t be afraid to treat yourself. I know that when you’re a wife, mother, entrepreneur or just on your daily grind of being a woman, it is easy to start slacking on the self-care. But we all need to do something for ourselves and not feel guilty about it. Taking care of yourself is the best thing you can do for everyone around you. Trust me, if I don’t take care of myself everyone in the house feels my aggravation, my lethargy and overall crankiness and that is not cute. No one wants that kind of energy around them so girl, stop it!
For me, I like to start with things I call little luxuries. These are things that are small and may seem insignificant, but they really go a long way in increasing my mood/energy. Getting a little bit fancy with the body oil is easy and it helps that the packaging looks pretty in the bathroom. Bonus!

This set from L’Occitane is one of those little luxuries that I like to have for myself. A few months ago when I received a sample of their body products I was excited to try them out and they did not disappoint. I recently grabbed this set from Sephora during their VIB sale and I definitely recommend this as a gift to moms and girlfriends and pretty much anyone who wants to upgrade from body wash for just a bit and luxuriate in this amazingness.
I like to take long relaxing showers which aren’t the best for my dry skin. The Almond Oil does a great job of not leaving my skin feeling stripped. The smell of sweet almond lingers on the skin in a really nice way and isn’t overbearing at all. Because I have eczema, I have to layer The Milk Veil on top of my prescribed body cream. The Milk Veil claims to firm the skin, but I haven’t noticed any firming so I cannot confirm that. It does, however, have a nice little shimmer to it that glistens in the sun and gives the appearance of radiance and of course because we layered the Almond scent, it lingers for longer! I mean come on ladies, let’s radiate, glow and smell great!
Also, I love that these two products have never broken me out or irritated my super sensitive skin. This stuff right here is lovely! I mean I don’t even need to keep typing, just go get you some and if you have it already, go be a friend and tell somebody because this little luxury is needed especially in these colder months!
