It is Wednesday. I have roughly 1 Billion things to do, and a horrible Cold to go along with it. I don't think Colds should be allowed to happen in October, but hey, I don't get to make the rules. Since I love you all, and am trying to get into a more steady blogging schedule, I am working though my stuffy,sniffles to get this post up. I couldn't think of anything more appropriate than a few ideas about Mid-Week self care.
Even if you aren't currently suffering from any sort of illness, Wednesdays can be rough. Normally by Wednesday, I am already tired from a busy week, and becoming pretty convinced that there is no way I can finish everything on my to-do list by Friday. In other words, I can use some pampering, but have very little time in which to pamper. Today, I have rounded up a few ideas for some simple, cheap and fabulous ways to pamper yourself.
If you do anything crafty with your week, or you type you life away, your hands probably could use some relief. This super easy Lemon-Sugar Hand Scrub from Under the Table and Dreaming would be a great treat. All the ingredients you need are sugar, olive oil and lemon. Seriously simple.
As I have mentioned previously, Fall is a great time for my favorite beverages. Weather you have the sniffles or just want to unwind before going to bed, hot drinks are soo worth the time. I found this recipe for an easy, jazzed up apple cider in Sweet Paul magazine, and am desperate to try it.
While you are drinking your apple cider, why not go to Cracked.com to read some funny, clever and fascinating articles. I also recommend HelloGiggles or Rookie for some fun, more girly internet gold. Laughter is the cheapest way to pamper yourself I can think of!
Finally, I thought I would leave you with a Self-Care playlist perfectly suited for a crisp October evening.
