This year has been a whirlwind! The weather has been so up and down, but I think we are finally settling into cool fall nights. For me, aside from the holidays, my social calendar isn’t as full towards the end of the year. Since the weather is cooler, I’m not setting up park play dates, or penciling in friends for patio dinner dates. So what better time than now to have a night in and focus on self-care! There are a few essentials that will help make your night as relaxing as possible. KP has all the makings of a perfect night in!
Home Spa Pampering
Any good night in that is focused on self-care should start with a bit of pampering! That could be a nice hot shower, bubble bath, manicure, pedicure, face mask…you get the picture. My KP faves are as follows: Stress Less Steamer, Lavendar Tub Truffles, and Peppermint Foot Scrub & Butter. I promise you won’t regret this regimen of putting the steamer in a sink full of hot water and letting the scents help you relax, while you fill up your bathtub with bubbles and drop in the truffles that will take your relaxation to the next level! End the mini spa day with a nice foot scrub! Slipping into your pjs after all this will be AHHH-MAZ-ING!
*Bonus, all these bath items are made in the USA!
Warmth & Comfort
It’s important to try and unplug for a little bit and just let your brain relax. You do so much every day, and we forget to just chill. I try to have a day where I just curl up on the couch and catch up on my shows. Not watching Boss Baby, Trolls, or Daniel the Tiger; but watching This Is Us, Total Divas, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. So after the (much needed) home spa session, wrap yourself up in a nice warm throw blanket and chill with your fave shows or a good book! KP has a great selection of throw blankets that will keep you comfortable for unlimited hours of lounging!
What shows are you watching or what books are you reading?
Great Fragrances Create a Relaxing Ambience
Essential oils are all the rage to help you create a relaxing environment. People often look to essential oils as alternative therapies to help them with a wide range of things. Oils can help you relax and sleep, help with pain, energy, or even illnesses! The diffusers look great as well and can be beautiful additions to your decor.
What essential oil would you choose?
Book/shows are cued up, and you have a relaxing, calming scent filling the room. What more could you want? Well, SNACKS! Enjoy your treats in stylish farmhouse style enamelware! Many of KP’s enamelware products are food safe so grab a brand new red rim mug to enjoy some hot chocolate on these chilly nights. And pop some popcorn to put in your labeled enamelware bowl! Added bonus: try to remember to put a meal in the crockpot the morning of your self-care day! You’ll have a nice hot meal waiting for you and your family! I totally recommend this chicken and noodles recipe. It will be perfect for this weather!
What is your favorite “night in” snack or meal?
You Deserve it!
Seriously, take the night off and relax. I know it’s hard to turn off your mind and not think about the laundry that should be in the washer, the clean dishes that need to be put away, or the crumbs that need to be swept. But you work hard all the time and you
deserve need a break and a bit of pampering. The chores will still be there tomorrow, so enjoy tonight for you!
