Hello beautiful people, I had such a good day today and I hope you all did, too.
One of my twitter friends said before that “loving yourself can be as simple as flossing your teeth everyday.” Sooooo true. The sad thing is–sometimes, we forget or disregard giving us even the simple things like flossing our teeth!
I’d like to be honest and let you guys know that I struggle with loving myself. Maybe it comes with depression, maybe not. However, the hurts–betrayal/rejection/etc. that happens in life puts me in a dark hole sometimes that I forget the only key to my real happiness is myself.
With that said, I’d like to introduce to you all a new portion on the blog: Self-Care Sundays. For now, I will be doing this once a month and it’s simple: I will be dedicating the day to loving me and being intentional about it.
Today, I kept it simple but full of pampering 🙂
I had my hair re-touched, fixed my brows, shaved, and tried out turmeric face mask (been wanting to for so long!!)
For the turmeric mask, I used:
- 1.5 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon almond milk
I just mixed them all in a small cup and applied it on fresh face (no make-up, and gave my face a good rinse before hand) I let it sit while I waited for the dye to set in my hair and rinsed it with my facial soap afterwards.
To top it off, my wonderful husband took this lovely photo of me:
(He was so adorable while taking it–shooing people and cars away because they would stare hehehe )
What do you guys do for yourselves as a form of self-care/self-love? Let’s share ideas and help each other out. 🙂
