I don’t know about you but life just seems to be all go go go. I’m a busy working mother with 2 kids. I have a couple of businesses which take up a lot of my time. But every now and then I need to take a step back, relax and think of me. Its times like this when I want to be pampered.
An easy way of relaxing for me is having manicures. Pretty nails make me smile. Without polish my nails look awful because of too many years of taking nasty medications that have horrid side effects. Too many years of having chronic illnesses that ruin my body thus affecting my hair and nails. They’re always the first parts of your body to show signs of being unwell. I am useless at applying nail varnish and getting it to stay put. I can chip it within hours of applying it even when using top and base costs.
However, a professional manicure can last a good 10 days. I’ve purchased the exact same products and used them st home and they only last a couple of hours. Why this happens in beyond me!
But with professional manicures not only does the polish stay put but I get the chance to just sit and relax. No children calling my name, no getting up and doing something mid way through. Just a good 40 minutes sat relaxing. As I mother I struggle to get time on my own to just sit and relax. Now my children are getting older I no longer get that me time after they have gone to bed. More often I am literally following them upstairs to bed now a days and as soon as my head hits the pillow I am usually falling straight asleep.
What do you do to pamper yourself and give yourself a little me time? Do you find this hard to do due to lack of time or you just feel guilty for doing so?
