If you’re a mom you’ll know the struggle of not only getting time to spend on yourself but also, not feeling guilty about it. When I first became a mama I made a pledge to myself that I would continue to take care of myself too. I’m not just a mom, I’m Stacey too. I vowed to never forget that.
I am pampering yourself’s biggest fan. I believe that EVERYONE should make time for themselves. Not just to take care of themselves physically but to take care of themselves mentally and emotionally. Every time I have a pamper night/day/session I feel refreshed, ready to take on the next day. So, have you had a pamper session recently? If the answer is no… Give yourself a gigantic kick up the bum and read on because this one, is for you!
Pamper sessions really can be as short/long, complex/simple as you like. DIY gives you the ability to run things exactly how you want them to. Make the most of it!
Get all the products that you want, if it’s just a face mask then that’s cool. You can stay simple or you can go alllll out. I recommend going all out, spoil yourself, you deserve it. I’ll link a few of my favourites below.
- Space eye mask from @lobellaloves. My absolute favourite, go to eye mask and so cheap too!
- Any bath bomb from the amazing Lush.
- The Queen of all body scrubs from The Body Shop. It smells AMAZING and leaves your skin feeling even more amazing.
- My favourite face mask. Ever. From Temple Spa.

This is possibly the most important. I know it’s probably the most laughable too. Time, what even is that? I run out of it on a daily basis. BUT, if you make something a priority, you’ll have the time. Guaranteed. And you, you should be a priority for sure.
The rest is so easy to do, light some candles to set the mood. There’s just something super relaxing about sitting in a bubble bath in candle light. Give it a try, there’s no chance you won’t feel relaxed, promise.
Put some of your favourite music on. It’ll be even more of your favourite when there are no children crying in the background. I often just YouTube spa music, I know totally classy but hey, it does the job. If you’re feeling lost of what to listen to here’s what I normally go for —
Then, when you’ve set the scene and you’re soaking in the tub, put on your face/eye masks and justtttt relax. Honestly, it is just bliss and one of my absolutely favourite things to do.
I aim to do a pamper night once a week, even more times if I’m feeling adventurous. My skin, my body and my soul thanks me for it and yours will too if you incorporate one every once in a while into your busy schedules. I can’t stress enough how important it is for you to just be you, focus on you and prioritise you every now and again. You don’t need to go somewhere to pamper yourself, you can do it in the comfort of your own home when your children are fast asleep. It really is that simple.
If you’re a spa night lover like me, what are your favourite ways to achieve the perfect spa night?
Happy pampering babes. ♡
