You Deserve An At-Home Spa Day

No matter who you are or what you do, we all deserve a little down time to pamper ourselves. I fully believe that you can't be your best self unless you take time to take care of you! We all need to unwind & relax a little! You don't have to spend tons of money at the spa to treat yourself like the queen you are. I am sharing with you all of my favorite things for when I'm feeling stressed & in need of some serious R&R. This week I want to challenge all of you to take some "me" time. Listen to your favorite play list, run a luxurious bubble bath, wear a beautiful robe, give yourself a mani/pedi, light a candle. Make a list of the things you're thankful for and some goals you'd like to work on this week. I want to know what & how you are going to treat yourself this week... let me know! xoxo, Meredith 


1. CANDLE - Voluspa Bourbon Vanille is decadent and smells amazing. Order online or if you're Downtown SAV, Midge on Broughton Street sells this brand. 

2. THE PERFECT BUBBLE BATH - A combo of Dr. Teal's Epsom Salt & Foaming Bath in lavender is my favorite recipe for the ultimate relaxing bath. 

3. EXFOLIATE - Is your body in need of polishing? Try this Bliss Soap'n Scrub Exfoliator. It will having your skin feeling brand new. 

4. HAIR - Hair care is so important! Make sure that you are buying quality products. My favorite line is by Lanza. Try their Healing Shampoo & Conditioner, followed by their Healing Oil. I also like to use It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Spray before I comb my hair. 

5. MOISTURIZER - My favorite body butter is Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter. Apply right after you get out of the bath or shower. 

6. SELF-TAN - In need of a color boost? Skip the body butter & try Xen Tan Moroccan Tan if you prefer a lotion formula, or use St. Tropez Dark Bronzing Mousse. 

7. LUXURIOUS ROBE - This Barefoot Dreams robe is a splurge, but I promise you won't regret it. I've never felt a softer, more comfortable robe. This is a celebrity favorite, Khloe wore it in the Hamptons episodes. 

8. FACE TREATMENTS - If you are stressed, tired, or over-worked, your face will surely show it. Here are some awesome products I think you should try. The Pixi Mud Mask is a 15-minute facial that will purify, stimulate & brighten. Follow with Pixi Glow Peel Pads. These exfoliating pads contain 20% glycolic acid & minimize pores, breakouts & fine lines. I am addicted to these pads! Treat your lips with Pixi Nourishing Lip Polish. It's a 2-in-1 exfoliator and nourisher. Finally, pamper your eyes with the Sephora Green Tea Eye Mask. It gives a cool, fresh sensation & gives you a wide-awake look. Obviously I am seriously impressed with the Pixi line. It's available at Target (YES!!!!!!) & the quality is really amazing. 

9. NAILS - Nothing makes me feel more disgusting than chipped finger nail polish. Seriously, this is probably my biggest pet peeve. And if I don't like the color on my nails, I don't feel like I can function. Ladies, this is the EASIEST & CHEAPEST way to make yourself look pulled together. Give yourself a damn mani/pedi at home. I always use the combo of: OPI base coat + 2 coats of polish + Essie Gel-Setter top coat.
