Summer is fading away (much like our tans and shiny hair...). To me, that signals time for a little self pampering in preparation for the school year ahead.
So here are a few things I like to do for myself before school starts. These little end of summer treats can fit any budget. I have no affiliation with these products... just my personal experience.
1. HIGH END: Get a mani/pedi
LOW END: Give yourself a coat of nail polish
Did you guys notice all of the white-ish nails all over the place this summer. That's right. The color of the season was a shade of white with creamy undertones.
O.P.I It's in the Cloud
My personal favorite was Essie's Tuck It in the Tuck. It has a hint of pink in it.
Both of these are pretty sheer. I recommend 3 coats!
2. HIGH END: Deep conditioning at the salon
LOW END: Hair mask at home
For my at home hair mask best pick, I chose It's a 10. It made my hair feel ultra silky. It is a splurge at $30 a pop, but I just saw it at Target for $25.
Of course, many swear by coconut oil for a hair mask. I consider it the Windex of this century. (Did you catch the My Fat Greek Wedding reference?)
3. FREE: Meditate
I have found from personal experience that meditation keeps me focused, centered, improves my posture and asthma, and keeps my heart rhythm in check. You can meditate for 5 minutes a day and see the difference. Wouldn't you want to spend 5 minutes of your day to make you feel awesome the other 1,435 minutes? Seems like a good investment to me.
Also, there are a ton of meditation videos on you tube. Some of them are for specific goals: relaxation, concentration, sleep, anxiety, depression, stress relief... you name it!
