GIRLTIME

 Being with a toddler all day, I just want some adult convesation and sometimes my husband just isn't enough (we just end up talking about her), so I love getting some girl time. Dinner dates with my closest friends means everything, just to escape for a little while and talk about other things besides my childs eating or sleeping habits helps me feel young again.

SPA DAY 

I like to give myself a spa day,  weather at home or at the spa. Any kind of self pampering is vital. I love getting facials, there's just something about someone else doing something for you, even if it means washing your face, I always end up having a little snooze (I must have really needed it). I even like to do face masks at home, or a warm bath, and sometimes those long hot showers at the best (yes this is called pampering after you have had a baby!) I also love getting for a haircut or blow dry (again someone else doing something for me, for once!) Anything which I can do in peace and tranquility is just so serene, just thinking about it I am zoning out. A little self love is a divine responsiblity. My husband or friends usually give me spa day gifts which I get super excited about, however if I am in need of a major day to myself and used up those gift cards, then I like to search for them on my own and always go to find deals near where I live on livingsocial and groupon so I don't feel super guilty.

SHOPPING (ALONE)

Lately, I have been only online shopping since I am working constantly and have so much going on, shopping online just makes it easier and convenient (thank god for AMAZON & 2-DAY shipping) however, nothing beats walking through stores and racks full of outfits waiting to be picked by you, so whenever my toddler isn't with me I love shopping alone. There is something about shopping alone that is so soothing, picking up what I want, trying on clothes and deciding for myself without the pressure or a baby grabbing half the hangers to the ground. I JUST LOVE ME TIME!
