Indulge in some ME time – My 10 favourite ‘Pamper Mummy’ items

Ok so you’re working really hard being this amazing new mum and everything’s beginning to settle into a bit of a routine (or maybe not, but don’t worry!). Little one has everything they could possibly ever need; everyone is fed, watered and still alive! You’re doing a GREAT JOB!

Question is….How are YOU? Have YOU had 5 minutes peace today? The likelihood is you’re probably a little bit (or a lotta bit) knackered and you’ve forgotten what the word ‘peace’ means! Again, don’t worry you’re doing a GREAT JOB! This is completely normal and all part of the being a parent thing!

However sometimes, just sometimes, it’s nice to be nice to yourself! Even if it’s just a simple little 5 second thing that makes you feel good, DO IT! You DESERVE IT! You made a whole person!!!!!!!

There are a few things that I like to make me feel a little more human, a little less Mum, a little more ME, calmer and just a bit ahhhhh…….

Here’s my favourite ‘Pamper Mummy’ items;

Clarins Eau Ressourcante Bath & Shower Milk
1.Clarins Eau Ressourcante Bath and Shower Cream 150 ml This smells absolutely divine, it reminds me of a Spa day I had at Eden Hall, it instantly takes me back to sitting in my dressing gown, totally relaxed having my facial. I use this in the shower when I need a little ME time.
Elemis Sweet Orchid Body Cream
2. ELEMIS Sweet Orchid Body Cream – Exquisite Body Cream, 50mlAnother little luxury from the very same Spa day, lovely and light, gorgeous fragrance and after a nice soak (if you’re lucky) in the bath it’s a fab ME time thing!
Clarins Eau Ressourcante Spray
3. Clarins Eau Ressourcante Spray I use this at bedtime if I’m feeling a little tense or anxious for the very same reasons as the Bath & Shower Milk. Divine and helps me drift off to sleep which as a new mum is often the best ME time you can get!
Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Perfume
4. Carolina Herrera 212 VIP Eau de Parfum spray 80 ml Sometimes you just need a spritz of perfume to lift your spirits. This is one of my absolute favs and definitely a ME time staple.
Paul Smith Portrait Perfume
5. Paul Smith Portrait for Women Eau De Parfum Spray for Her 80 ml Another of my staple perfumes, harder to find this one nowadays but I love it and always feel great when wearing it, perfect as a treat for ME.
Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm
6. Clarins HydraQuench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm, 15 ml A lovely way to take care of your lips in the colder weather to come, this is a staple item in my ME time box of tricks!
Baylis & Harding Jojoba, Silk & Almond Oil cream hand wash
7. Baylis & Harding Hand Wash, Jojoba, Silk and Almond Oil, 500 ml, Pack of 3 Ok so you might not have chance for a shower or a bath to make you feel good but you’re going to wash your hands at some point today right? Right! This totally luxurious, gorgeously scented hand wash is the answer! A waft of this and it never fails to put a smile on my face, it’s just so nice! A little bit of ME time every time you wash your hands! Perfect!
Drying your Hair
8. Drying my hair! So I hardly ever do this anymore. I’ll often wash it then scrape it back into the obligatory ‘messy bun’ or ponytail and that’s it. To actually take a few minutes to just dry your hair can be enough to give you that ME time you need! It feels like an absolute luxury!
Rimmel Rain Rain Go Away 60 Second Shine Nail Varnish
9. Rimmel London 60 Seconds Super Shine by Rita Ora Nail Polish, 498 Rain Rain Go Away, 8 ml Now although you may need to pick your moment to apply this, I have to say it’s a complete game changer! Dries quickly and I just LOVE this nude colour! My absolute Favourite, and having your nails done (even if you DIY) always makes me feel good! Perfect ME time equipment!
Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask
10.Clarins HydraQuench Cream Mask, 75 mlnice to give yourself 5 minutes of ME time. Your face feels so soft and hydrated after using this lovely face mask, it’s my favourite part of my ME time skincare routine.
