Valentine's Day: Treat Yo-Self

 Sweater: Aeropostale // Joggers: Mershalls

Happy Wednesday dolls! Everyone is posting about Valentine's Day date night looks and beauty tutorials. Some of you dolls may be spending it with your Bae, others with your #Galentines, but this post is for the girl who wants to give self love. Yep, there is nothing wrong with treating yourself to a nice relaxing day for Valentine's Day. We #girlbosses are so busy these days. From mothers trying to balance play dates and careers, to girls just starting out and trying to figure out how to be a productive adult, we all need a little time out. This post also features a few items from the "Cheers To You"VoxBox that was kindly provided to me by Influenster. I've mentioned Influenster on my Instagram before. The general idea is that you sign up with Influenster and they ask you to take snaps (surveys) to see what types of products and activities you like. Then when a VoxBox is up for grabs, they decide to send you another survey based on your profile to see if you qualify for that box. And if you do, you get a pretty box with items you can try out for free. I'll give a more detailed info of how the program works when I do a full review of the box. I just thought it was great that the box came just in time for this post.

One of the things I love to do when I'm relaxing at home is to put on something comfortable. Normally, that's leggings and a cute sweater or sweats. I also like to  have yummy snacks and something to drink while I sink into the couch. My fave snacks are salty or sour. I'm not the biggest sweets fan. I never have been. I probably buy sweet treats like ice cream or cookies and cake every 2-3 months or so. This was my first time trying these Way Better Snacks Tortilla Chips. The chips came in my VoxBox and they are non-GMO and Vegan friendly. They tasted pretty good. I'll give a full review in a later post.

For activities, I usually switch between watching a girly movie and being on my Nook. I have an older version here, but it functions just like a regular tablet. I like to catch up on my YouTube subscriptions or play word/puzzle games. I know that working your brain is not relaxing for most people, but it is for me. My mind is always going and thinking games help me focus the energy that's normally dispersed between multiple thoughts. Pretty surroundings also help me relax. If the area I'm in is too disorganized, then all I'll focus on is that I need to clean.

Once I'm done doing that, I like to end my night by taking a hot bath. I create a spa like environment by turning the lights low and lighting some candles. I work in retail and I'm on my feet most of the day, so Epsom salt is a must. This Dr. Teal's Lavender salt is amazing. I was provided this by Influenster also, but I'm no stranger to this product. I've mentioned it in my Essentials for Relaxing post. It's also great to choose the body wash and bubble bath you love the most. I chose my Bath and Body Works A Thousand Wishes. It just seemed fitting for Valentine's Day. I use this as a bubble bath also. I'll soak for about 20 min. with my fave slow songs on. Once I'm done, I'll climb into bed and feel totally ready for dreamland.
