Winter Weather Got You Down? Time for Some At Home Pampering!

Contains affiliate links



Baby it's cold outside!  It's a whopping -10 here in the Twin Cities.  The East is still looking at mountains of snow to get rid of, and folks in the South have been dealing with freezing temps, and icy roads.  It's enough to make a mamma want to holla!


For some of us, it would take a blizzard to keep us inside.  Instead of losing your cool on this cold, winter day, take some much need time for yourself.  Take a me day!

Here are a few ideas to get you started

*First, start off  by lighting your favorite candle.  My favorite is a Blood Orange Candle
 candle that smells bright and citrusy.

*Pour yourself a hot cup your favorite tea.  Don't gulp it down, just sip it and enjoy it.  Or better yet, make some hot lemon water.

*Start the day with a thanksgiving prayer and catch up on your bible reading.  Someone doesn't have shelter in this wintery mess.  Be grateful.

*Dust off that workout video that you used to love exercising to.  Or, turn on YouTube!  They have great free workouts that get the blood pumping.  The endorphins you get from moving will cure those winter blues.

On to the Pampering



*Give yourself a facial. Got a mask that you love?  Go ahead, no one's at home to see you. ;)

*Draw a nice, warm, bath.  Be sure to add bubbles or Bath salts to make it more luxurious.

*Treat yourself to a body scrub while you're soaking. Exfoliate your skin from head to toe.  Mary Kay has a nice scrub that's sweet and peachy.

*Shave your legs! Yes, girl, it's about that time.  I use Whish when I want a smooth, clean shave.  You love how silky your legs feel. 

*Paint your nails.  Play with that new polish you've been wanting to try.  Head to Pinterest and or Instagram and try out some nail art.  You don't need anywhere to go, just paint them for you!


End your day with the warmth of a fireplace, if you have one.  Grab your favorite magazine or a book you haven't had time to read.  If you prefer, make it a Netflix or Hulu night and catch up on your TV shows.

What are your tips for taking a me day?

  2. I love these ideas, I can't promise that I will stop gulping down my tea. It's winter and while I do complain you're right it's important to give thanks that I have food, clothing and shelter

  6. It doesn't take much to keep me inside. I pretty much stay inside when the temp is below 50. I definitely use that time to polish my nails (and should probably shave too LOL).
