Do you know when you can actually feel your skin needs a big-time facial? It needs all the love it can get. Well, a facial at home is perfect, especially on a Sunday! Here’s a step by step for a perfect Sunday at-home facial;
Take a long and well-deserved bath/shower;
Use your favorite cleanser to wash your face and get some of the dirt removed from the surface.
Apply a gentle face scrub to your skin and massage into your skin.
Use a towel soaked in hot water to steam your face by placing the towel on your face. Or you can use a big bowl with warm water, use a towel over your head and put your head right above the bowl to steam your face.
4. FACEMASK & TONER
Apply your favorite facemask depending on what your skin needs. Use a toner after the facemask.
Now its time for a good moisturizer and eye cream.
ET VOILÀ!You’ll feel fresh, clean and ready for a new and long week! I hope you enjoyed! ♥
I love listening to podcasts on my way to/from work and when taking a fresh walk outside alone. But I needed something new to listen to so I asked on Instagram for any recommendations a long time ago and I want to share with you guys some of my favorites and some of the recommendations that I got;

So, last week I had a full self-care week, I decided to make time every evening no matter what, to do something that I enjoy and that makes me feel good. And I have to say it was pretty enjoyable! Especially as a mother and in a fulltime job, it’s so important to make time for whatever you like and enjoy.
I will share what I did, perhaps it will inspire you to do the same;
Monday; I bought myself flowers although that’s a Friday thing for me, just because. Such a small act, but it felt so good. Fresh flowers at home are so underrated.
Tuesday; I took a long and much-needed bath, with my favorites from Rituals and with my favorite Origins facemask. Let me say: It. felt. good.
Wednesday; I made time to read the lovely book of Nouma Ali Khan and take some notes from it. It makes you reflect and learn something new. This is something I really love to do but don’t always have time to do, unfortunately.
Thursday; I did a 10 minutes yoga session at home. It was short but much needed for my body. Felt good afterward.
Friday; Had a fun girls-night at my in-laws, with a lot of laughing. Always a great thing for your wellbeing.
Saturday; Took a walk in the city and had a look in the stores. Got me some bits and bobs. I also had some quality time with my son which is always lovely.
Sunday; Prepared for a new week.
Try to make time for yourself for a whole week and see how you feel.
Hello beautiful people! I hope you’re all doing well. I made this weekly planner and thought I would share it with you too. It’s a planner with the days in the week, with goals for that week, dinner menu, and a box with habits to check off; Skincare, gratitude journaling, reading 20 minutes and some movements (whether that’s a workout, a yoga session or a walk outside)
