Me time. Something I took for granted when I had it in spades, and struggle to find now that I have so many responsibilities.
Part of the struggle is I love everything that's eating my time. Being Evelyn's Mom. Gabe's Wife. The sole power-force behind Simplicity & Coffee. The maintainer of our beautiful home. But with all those responsibilities, it is almost impossible to take even 5 minutes for myself these days.
Fortunately, G is the best husband ever (it's true), and makes it possible for me to continue a relaxation time that started while I was pregnant with Evie: my nightly bath.
Every night, once Evie is down, G watches her through the initial fussy phase as she falls asleep and lets me slip away to our bathroom, where I settle into the warm water and play sudoku for a blissful 20 minutes.
Lately, I've added one more step to my routine: A quick scrub with the most amazing coconut and lime scented product from Bikini Babe Tea: their Matcha & Himalayan Salt Body Scrub.
I love this scrub because it's full of some amazing, all natural ingredients, including himalayan rock salt, matcha (which is loaded with antioxidants), and hibiscus (goodbye cellulite and wrinkles!).
Once I'm ready to get out of the bath, I give myself a (not so quick!) scrub, rinse off, and enjoy the coconut-lime scent as I moisturize and slip into my PJs.
It's the perfect way to wrap up my nightly self care routine, and since I love it so much, I'm giving one lucky Reader the chance to win their own body scrub and enjoy some much needed #bbtMeTime. Head over to my Instagram for the entry details (contest runs May 17, 2017 - May 19, 2017).
Good luck! And don't forget, you're beautiful.
