We all need a little pampering sometimes.
But what we really need is the pampering without the guilt. You should never feel bad for treating yourself to a deserved break or little gift.
If you’re like a lot of the ladies I know, you are killin’ it at life. Working hard, balancing a ton of different things, always striving to improve yourself — you get the picture.

SO YOU DESERVE IT – TREAT YOURSELF
I am definitely one of those people that feels guilty treating myself sometimes. I think that I should save the money, spend it on something more responsible.
But what I am starting to realize is that PAMPERING YOURSELF IS BEING RESPONSIBLE. Forcing yourself to take a break is needed, and without a little bit of pampering, you may just crack.
Pampering can mean whatever you want it to. It can be a candlelit bath with just you and your book. It can be an hour-long massage at the spa. It can even be giving yourself the time to go try that barre class you felt was a bit too expensive.
Whatever it is, carve out some time in your schedule to do it.
I don’t care how busy you are. Spending time on you is SO KEY to your happiness and everything else.

PENCIL YOURSELF IN
I will seriously put on my Google Calendar (post to come about that later because OH MAN is it a lifesaver!) “Leslie time.”
That can mean whatever I feel like that day, but I pencil myself into my schedule to make sure I actually get that needed pamper-time in.
(Last weekend, my “Leslie time” session was me painting my nails while watching Big Little Lies — can we talk about how AMAZING that show is?!)

MY FAVORITE PAMPERING TREATS
Here are some of my favorite things to pamper myself with:
- Facial — Every time I get one I swear to myself I need to get them more. A clean face = a happy Leslie.
- Deep tissue massage
- Wearing a fave outfit for no reason
- Epsom salt bath
- Painting nails + Netflix
Obviously the list needs to be longer, but I am just getting started with this.
What are your favorite pampering activities/gifts? Would love to hear how you guys pamper yourselves 🙂
