[guest post] 5 Simple Ways to Treat Yourself with Absolutely No Guilt

25 June 2018

This post is a guest post from the wonderful Amy Mia

After a long week at work and numerous errands you’ve had to do day after day, all you need is a little bit of you time to relax and indulge yourself. Don’t even doubt your decision for a second, because a little bit of pampering and some treats never killed anyone, and what’s more, it’ll be highly therapeutical for your mind and body. Therefore, if you’re in dire need of pampering yourself, we offer you five options that will never make you feel guilty for spending money on them.

Have a massage

Indulging in a long massage is sometimes all you need to feel recharged and relaxed. A day at the spa can easily make your week look less stressful and prepare you for your next challenges. Don’t wait a minute longer but book your appointment immediately, and let the skilled masseurs do their magic on your back, neck, and feet and you’ll feel like a brand new woman after only an hour of this soothing and replenishing treatment. Think about bringing a few of your friends with you as well and make it a cute little girl’s day, catching up and enjoying the relaxing charms of massages.

Go on a shopping spree

Yes, we know that every woman’s greatest vice is shopping and that we never have enough clothes, shoes and bags. However, a hectic lifestyle and a busy schedule can seriously disrupt your shopping rhythm, and if it’s been months since the last time you really brought something new into your wardrobe, grab those credit cards and hit the mall. Summer is almost here and we’re sure you need some new stylish swimwear, so make sure you check out the new collection of Seafolly Desert Tribe swimsuits and you’ll certainly find the piece for your body type. A new skirt or a new sundress is always welcome in your closet, as well as a pair of wedge heels or a new clutch to match your lovely dress.

Mani-pedi treatment

You can’t look neat and tidy unless your nails are buffed and nicely manicured. Summer is the season to show off your skin, your new flip flops, sandals, open toes and heels, which means your feet and hands need to be in tip-top shape. Therefore, make a mani-pedi appointment ASAP to give your hands and feet the proper care. Your feet will look amazing, and the new heels you bought on that shopping spree will look even more gorgeous once your feet are smooth and pampered. 


Only when you pack your bags and hit the road can you say that you’re truly living your life. Getting to know new cities, countries and fabulous destinations is the best way to both relax and learn something new about the world. So, don’t hesitate to indulge yourself with a lovely vacation in some of the exotic islands, or maybe an active vacation where you’ll be hiking, snorkelling, diving, surfing and exploring all the wonders of the country you’ve never been to before. You work hard all year long, so you shouldn’t feel guilty if you want to treat yourself with a trip to the mountains during winter, or if you’d prefer to hit the beach and show off your new swimwear right by the ocean.

Cleanse your body and mind

Cleansing your mind, body, and soul of all the worry, anxiety, stress, and responsibility is much needed after a long working period. Meditation classes and yoga will help you reconnect with your inner self and calm all your thoughts, while also allowing your body to relax. An extra-long hot shower is sometimes the best remedy for all the stress, just as a bath bomb can bring an additional dose of calmness into your bathing routine. 

Light up a great smelling candle and put it next to your bath to get that spa-like feel and forget about all your worries. A relaxing playlist can have the same effect, creating a true Zen-like atmosphere in your own home. To cleanse your body from the inside, drink detox waters and add different fruit combinations for different results. Soothing teas will have the same effect if you like to indulge in these warm infusions. 

Final thoughts

Every time you feel like you need a bit of rest, go with your instincts and treat yourself with a simple reward that’ll make you feel rejuvenated and ready for new challenges. Even if you just buy a new lipstick, without spending a fortune in an hour-long shopping spree, it’ll still be a little treat and money well spent, so you shouldn’t regret it for a second.
