Self-care Routine for a Spring-Pick-Me-Up

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.

Making time for self-care is super important for your mind, body and soul. My skincare routine is my daily “me time” but I like to set aside time on the weekend for self-care. Spring is also the perfect time to do a little self-care to get yourself ready for any vacations coming up or just treat yourself.

At Home Foot & Nail Care with Kerasal

In the past 12 month, I have gotten TWO pedicures! My feet were looking tragic. Thankfully with a good foot file and Kerasal Intensive Foot Repair, my feet are starting to look so much better. This exfoliating moisturizer will hydrate and deeply moisturize dry skin in as little as one day. The claims are true! I took before and after pictures after just one application. For best results, apply and cover with cotton socks overnight.

After getting gel polish manicures, my nails were so brittle. They are already really thin. Kerasal Multi-Purpose Nail Repair is meant to restore the appearance of nails from gel manicures, psoriasis, aging, or onychomycosis – which I actually developed. Washing my hand all the time made my nails so soft and start to detach from the skin. It’ll take a few weeks to see results, so I’ll keep you all posted on Instagram.

Spring Manicure

Since ditching gel polish, I’ve been doing my own at-home manicures. It’s fun to play with colors as the seasons change. I’m so excited to discover this new-to-me Halo Hand polish. They are non-toxic polishes that are 10-free meaning they don’t contain the ten most common and harsh chemicals found in regular polishes.

Reef Pool Float Sandals

Now that our feet are taken care of, they are ready for sandals! In Texas, it’s basically sandal weather year round. The Reef Pool Float Sandals not only come in fun, bright colors, they are also super comfortable because of the supple padded footbed and oversized straps.

Shave Oils From Tree Hut

Let’s show our legs a little love. I am obsessed with oils but had no idea shave oils existed. Tree Hut Bare Moisturizing Shave Oils allow you to get a close shave while moisturizing your legs, leaving them so smooth and soft. I have the Tree Hut Bare Moisturizing Shave Oils in Moroccan Rose which I love for date nights and the Coconut Lime smells like a tropical vacation in a bottle, perfect for Spring. They are easy to use, just wet the skin, shave and rinse.

Relaxing and Reading with Running Press

To be quite honest, I am not a huge reader but I love the concept behind A Year of Weeks: 52 Awesome Weeks of Trying New Things by Erica Roots. This book is full of mindful activities from reminding us to drink enough water, making time to meditate or writing someone a handwritten note. This would also make an amazing gift.

Skincare Must Have

If you haven’t already incorporated a serum into your skincare routine, I highly encourage you to do so. Hyaluronic Acid is a great one to start with specifically LiftActiv Supreme Hyaluronic Acid Wrinkle Corrector from Vichy. H.A. draws moisture to your skin which helps plump, hydrate and help prevent wrinkles. Vichy’s formula also includes Vitamin C (which is another staple) and Vichy Volcanic Water. I have been using for about 10 days and my skin has not had a bad reaction. I’ll definitely continue using it and will share more in an Instagram post soon. Apply to damp skin after cleansing and follow with moisturizer.

Do you have any self-care routine rituals?

    I need that foot repair! I like taking baths and reading for self care. Usually do a face mask as well.

  5. I’m embarrassed to say that my feet NEED these! Especially as I break out the sandals!


  6. I need that heel fix immediately!!!


  7. Those printed sandals would be perfect for a tropical vacation! I usually pamper myself with an at-home manicure, too. It always feels so nice to treat myself to an hour alone to create a fresh new mani!
