Now, I know all of your girls are busy, running your households, handling your businesses and holding down the fort but every now and again we have to take some time out to make love to ourselves. What is life with out replenishing I remember one day when i was running around all day like a chicken with my head cut off so much so that i didn’t have time to eat and a friend of mine, a man, said do you expect your car to drive if you don’t put gas in your car?
So for this mother’s day I ask what i always ask for for mothers day a lil mother f*king peace and quiet. So for this mother’s day and any old day you feel like it make sure that you follow my my strict Friday Pamper schedule, with a little intensive therapy that might also help you navigate your way through this crazy lil world.
Make some time Just for You
Although as a single woman you may spend a lot of time alone, you know just as well as I do not all time is quality time. I am very big on utilizing what I have to make the best outta of my mood. So here are a few tips on how to get your started.
Step 1. First thing you need to do is make a playlist of some feel good music. I like to start out with any George Michael it is sure to get that party started of hair brush singing in front of my floor length mirror and no matter what is going on in my life I’m about to get things popping with a little old MJ, circa 1980’s Off the Wall, some Omarion’s Entourage and for sure, since I am West Indian, there isn’t any music that celebrates the beauty of Black women like Reggae.
Step 2. I like to start of with a glass of wine or Champagne. And since i included my the recipe to my SGG Strawberry Mojito try that, It always makes the night go easier..Lol
Step 3. Next I get out my foot spa and relax. If your don’t have a foot spa, you might wanna take your party right to the tub. Try to add some drops of peppermint oil to the water for maximum relaxation mix w/ lavender. Disperse oil in water by blending first with a teaspoon of honey or jojoba oil before adding to your foot/bath. Side note and I found this out purely coincidentally. If you add these oils to your conditioner, they make for great scalp stimulation but if you also condition while you shower, They also provide a little stimulation for you too as well if you catch my drift.
Step4. I love scented candles so your aroma therapy situation should be for serious.
Now that you have taken out some time for yourself you are ready to take on the world. So make sure that you remember to every now and again to put yourself first. It doesn’t make you self fish, is makes you able to treat other’s better when you feel good about your self please enjoy your day and remember it is not just once a year.
