Firstly I just wanted to say thank you for the overwhelming love and support following my last post. If I’m honest I’ve spent most of this week in a daze, trying to make sense of it all, but then finding I can’t make sense of it however hard I try. I am slowly making peace with the flurry of emotions and treating myself with love, patience and kindness through this difficult time.
I think I have just been feeling a bit drained post exams & with work being quite full on too plus me being the busy body I am I never seem to stop! In fact I’m on an early 7am train to Nottingham as we speak on my way to a conference for the day! I absolutely love train stations… I always hope to see some romantic gesture on the platform as if I’m in some kind of rom-com!
So on this lovely journey I have wifi so enjoying catching up on all the blogs and thought I must share my wonderful mini spa day from earlier this week! I had booked a (much needed) haircut at my local Aveda salon – they were doing a fab offer that all the proceeds from the haircut went straight to the charity wateraid … and lucky me managed to bag a haircut with the salon director at half her usual rate, less then a junior!
They treated me like a princess all afternoon, it was nice to be spoiled! I had lots of tea, read loads of fashion magazines and got my nails painted blue for wateraid!
I decided to make an evening of it and treated myself to an exquisite facial too, which smoothed& replenished my dehydrated skin! It was amazing, they took me upstairs and the decor was a seductive chocolate truffles meets Bali vibe! I felt instantly relaxed and chilled out and it was definitely what my body was craving.
I came away from my impromptu spa day feeling refreshed and re-balanced and after s long week it was just what I needed. It was a great way to kick off my “love thyself” manifesto: to start treating myself with love and compassion looking after myself mind body and soul, because, yes, I am worth it!
