A Spa Date With Yourself

A Spa Date With Yourself - My Spa Shop

By Carole Tessier

If you ever find yourself with no plans on a Saturday night? Don't worry - a date with yourself can be an excellent change of pace.

Here are different ideas on how to turn a ho-hum night into a gratifying and blissful experience.

Spa night

  • Have a foot bath. Soak your feet in warm, oil-infused water, followed by an exfoliating foot scrub. Pamper your feet with a moisturizing foot cream and cover them with comfy sockettes OR
  • Take a warm bath and give yourself a face mask. Fill your bathtub with warm water and add a few drops of essential oils or a capful of your favorite bubble bath. Apply your face mask, soak and relax. Once you are out of the bath, pamper your body with a fragrant moisturizer or powder, and slip into a comfy bathrobe.
  • Give yourself a manicure or pedicure and polish your nails with a color that makes you feel special.
  • Create a soothing ambiance by lighting scented candles and listening to your favorite music.
  • For added pampering, make yourself a steaming cup of herbal tea, hot chocolate or flavored coffee - or take a bowl of popcorn and your favorite soda to bed, and crack open a great book.

Movie night

  • Put on your chef’s hat, play a great CD, swing to the music, and prepare your favorite meal.
  • Set a nice table for yourself. Use pretty placemats, fine napkins and light a few candles.
  • After dinner, check out the movie listing, pick a great chick flick, and make your way to the theater.
  • If you’re in the mood for snacks, don’t deny yourself. This is your night!
  • When you return home, pamper yourself with a warm bath, followed by your favorite tea and author.

If you prefer a night in, rent yourself a good movie and kick up your feet. Once the movie is over, make yourself a decadent dessert, taking it to bed early with a good book. Try falling asleep to nature sounds or relaxing music.

I don’t know about you but I’m a bit winter weary so Spring can’t come soon enough. I love this time of year when the world appears to be bursting at the seams! The snow is melting, the buds are starting to emerge, open windows usher in fresh air, birds and bunnies begin to awaken out of their winter slumber and I can finally lock away my coat and cold weather gear!
