As busy modern women, the juggle between work-life balance can often feel like a struggle. Whether it’s travelling for work, getting to the gym, taking care of children or attending meetings, by the end of the week we can often feel exhausted. Not to mention keeping up a healthy social life! A life in motion is essential – full of passion, learning, excitement, and new challenges at every turn.
But every once in a while, we deserve some well-earned ‘me-time’. Taking time out to relax from our hectic lifestyles to unwind and rejuvenate our spirits. To mentally “check out” from anything that may be causing us stress, and instead show ourselves some “self-love.” This could be staying in bed all morning, spending a day at the beach, writing in a journal about what inspires us most, or indulging in a self-care beauty routine.
A self-care staycation is essential to our well-being. kikki.K and leading Swedish beauty brand, Löwengrip Beauty, have teamed up to give you our favourite tips for a replenishing staycation.
A meditative morning:
– Wake up without your alarm!
– Make yourself a morning coffee with oat milk (an environmentally friendly and plant-based Swedish favourite) and relax in bed with your latest book.
– 10-minutes of morning meditation followed by your favourite barre or restorative yoga class and a relaxing mini hand massage with our fast-absorbing Get a Grip Hand Balm.
A soul-searching afternoon:
– Freshen up after your morning workout with an indulgent beauty routine. Start by washing your face with The Clean & Calm Facial Cleanser. Pro tip! Wash your face twice to make sure that it’s thoroughly cleaned. Next apply The Serum to your face and neck, followed by The Facial Cream, to lock in hydration. Finish off your routine with a spritz of The Facial Mist.
– Cosy up in the park or at your favourite coffee shop, and spend the afternoon reading a good book or write your dreams and inspirations for your future in the kikki.K Your Dream Life Journal.
– Grab your favourite on-the-go kikki.K She Shines Tote Bag (it fits everything!) and visit a museum in your town that you’ve always overlooked.
A communal evening:
– Call up your friends for a “vibe tribe” dinner. Nothing replenishes the soul like a night of warm food, good wine and laughter with your besties. Want to stay fresh all night long? Grab Löwengrip’s best beauty refreshers – Moisture on the Go Facial Mist and a mini size Good to Go Dry Shampoo – they’ll fit perfectly inside your kikki.K Leather Belt Bag!
– Finish off your evening by applying our favourite the Sleeping Sensation – Hydration Mask and sleep like an angel.
Always remember how important it is to take care of yourself! Give yourself that time to rejuvenate and bring your best self forward, you will be 10x more ready to tackle the big hurdles you are bound to face next.
