I’m not sure if it was the weather, getting over a lingering cold, or just that March is always a drab sort of time of year, but over the past several weeks I’ve felt super frumpy! I knew that I needed something to shake me out of the blahs, and I have a sneaking suspicion you might too! Luckily I knew just the thing that would work, and am feeling soooo much better that I just couldn’t keep it to myself. Here’s what to do!
Go from Frumpy to Glowing (in just a few hours)!
Stock up on some pampering supplies If you don’t already have these things lying around at home your first stop should be to Walmart to pick them up! You’ll need the following
Now, I’ll admit that when it comes to bath and body products I’m a bit of a snob. I loooove the high quality kind of body wash & lotion that you usually can only find in the specialty stores at the mall that only carry that kind of product. That’s why I was so shocked when a few visits home ago my Mom asked me if I had tried any of Softsoaps new high end body washes and she claimed they were as good as my specialty store’s. I was super skeptical, so she let me try hers during our visit, I was sold!! It really was as rich, creamy, and foamed up just as well as my $20 bottle brand–and she’d only paid $3 for hers!!
When I saw that they’d just come out with 2 new body washes I couldn’t wait to try them out–especially since both contain 100% real extracts. I’ve already confessed to you my love of all things exfoliating, and I thought the new Softsoap Fresh & Glow Exfoliating Fruit Polish would be perfect for a much overdue pedicure with its Apricot Seeds, Orange & Kiwi for smooth, glowing skin–my legs and feet can always use a little extra love!
Now that was taken care of I knew that a loooooong, luxurious bath was also in order, and so I also picked up Softsoap Fresh & Glow Hydrating Shower Cream. When it’s not raining (or snowing!) this winter it’s been extremely dry, and my skin and hands have been feeling a bit dull and parched, which is unusual for me! Milk Protein Almond and Coconut was just what my skin was calling for, since the benefit of the hydrating is that it is proven to lock-in long-lasting moisture! Now that you have all your handy supplies it’s time for the next step, and it’s a big one! Get a Fab New Haircut You can do this at Walmart, or your favorite salon, but nothing quite helps shaking the frumpy feeling like a fresh hairstyle and blow out does! Hop onto Pinterest and find a fabulous style and set up your appointment for ASAP. Then dub that “Glowing Day” and get ready to get pampered!
After your hair is cut and you’re feeling fabulous (don’t forget the mandatory selfie! It’s a huge non-frumpy ego booster to get over 80 likes on it, my friends are the best!!!!) Now go on home and get ready for the next step of pampering.
Take a Nice, Looooooong, Soaking Bath
Grab a great book or magazine, a scented candle, and your Softsoap Fresh & Glow Hydrating Shower Cream and settle in for a long, relaxing, soothing soak. (or grab some music and hop in and take a long, hot shower, for my shower loving friends.) Before you settle in, however, be sure to also grab all the supplies you’ll need for your pedicure, too, you’ll see why in just a bit!
If you have little ones I’d recommend doing this either after they go to bed or at least put a movie on for them–hearing little voices yelling at the door every 5 minutes when you’re trying to relax is NOT conducive to glowing! 😉
Give Yourself a Long Overdue Pedicure
Before you drain that tub wait just one second! Wrap yourself up in your biggest, fluffiest towel and sit on the edge of the tub and give your feet and legs a good scrubbing with Softsoap Fresh & Glow Exfoliating Fruit Polish. Then towel them off, put your very best lotion on, and give yourself a pedicure that will make you smile every time you look at it! Voila!!! You are now feeling and looking 100% Gorgeously Glowing and no long Frumpy! Do you have anything you do differently to shake off the frumps and get glowing? Tell me about it in the comments!
