At Home Spa Day

at home spa day

Is there anything better than a day of doing absolutely nothing? I’ve been trying to have phone-free Sundays lately which leaves me with a surprising amount of free time. A few things I’ve been doing instead have been reading more and trying new recipes. I’ve also been treating myself to at home spa days.

I’m bad about multi-masking; doing a face mask while working on my computer or cleaning my apartment. But setting aside time with nothing else to do but focus on my skin has been so luxurious. Something I’ve been doing inconsistently for years is remembering to use my quartz roller. It’s one of the things I’ve included in my Sunday spa routine and my skin is looking so much better for it.

I am loving the Summer Fridays Jet Lag mask because it is super hydrating. My skin is oily which means I need to use moisturizing products to keep it from breaking out. Another mask I have been loving is the Glossier Mega Greens Galaxy mask. It detoxifies and also adds in nutrients from the leafy greens and fruits from which it’s made. I use the Glossier mask first to get rid of excess oil and dirt before using any other products.

After masking and rolling and all the good skin things, I’ve been avoiding wearing makeup on those days. So I follow up my routine with the Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster Oil. It’s a dry oil so it goes on without leaving any sticky feeling or residue. It’s meant to be used daily. I usually mix two drops in with my foundation which helps it stay on all day with my oily skin.

I’ve noticed a huge difference in how soft my skin has become since I began using this oil. It’s a little pricey, but one bottle could last you a really long time. I’ve been using it every single day for about 8 months and have used about 1/8th of the bottle.

And then I finish up my Sunday at home spa day by reading a magazine or a book and doing absolutely nothing. It is maybe the best routine I’ve ever had.

Do you have any at home spa day routines? Are you thinking of doing phone-free days? I’d love to know what you do to disconnect, leave your favorites in the comments!

This weekend was spent in a beautiful city high in the snowy mountains of Colorado called Breckenridge. Have you ever heard of it?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's picturesque and has some of the kindest locals I've ever met.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For those of you who don't know of it, here are some interesting facts about this small city:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️Nearly 70 lbs. of gold was said to be mined in Breckenridge during the gold rush.
▪️The Gold Pan Saloon is one of the oldest running pubs in the country. It was founded in 1859 (I was there!).
▪️The town of Breckenridge is 7 miles long and 2 miles wide.
▪️The highest chairlift in North America is Breckenridge’s Imperial Express. At its peak it reaches 12,840 feet.
▪️The entire town has free Wi-Fi for both residents and visitors alike.
▪️More than 3 million people visit Breckenridge each year.
⠀⠀⠀
If you're thinking of taking a winter sports break, Breckenridge is the place to do it. Snowboarding, skiing and tubing are just some of the highlights the city offers! 🏂

  • Saturday afternoon plans I don’t want to cancel.☀️ @garyjanetti is one of the funniest writers and we probably don’t deserve him. Add this to your reading list because it’s fantastic and hilarious. I’m not into audiobooks at all, like please don’t ever recommend them to me because I will report you to the police, but I would listen to Gary read the audiobook of his because he’s so funny and I think it would be an absolute delight. 5 stars. 💛

  • Found my new favorite high-waist jeans 👖❤️ It took me a really long time to find a pair to replace my favorite Gap pair that ripped in the butt while I was leaving a Barnes & Noble months ago. 😐 Lesson learned to not trust $20 jeans. I’m writing a whole post to give you some insight into how I created a more curated closet and some of my standards to be less wasteful in my shopping habits. If you have questions about shopping more thoughtfully, pairing down your closet, etc., feel free to leave them in a comment! 👇🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • The outfit I’ll probably wear all of fall. 🍂 Just insert leather jacket. In other news I’ve given up using my blow dryer on the weekends. Well I do blow dry my bangs because if you don’t blow dry bangs you are living a wild, lawless life I am not prepared to live. 😬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
