Bad Day? Indulge Yourself with Gluten-Free Spa-Treats March 10, 2010

100% Pure Bubble Bath in Strawberry It’s only 1 pm and I’ve already had a crummy day. It seems like all my friends are moving away- they have some fabulous adventure or opportunity that they’re running away to.

Me? I feel stuck in this awkward middle stage of being ridiculously busy and still managing to be completely boring. I’m sure it’s just a hormonal thing- my life really isn’t bad at all, and at the end of the day, I’m a very happy and blessed person.

It can happen to anyone. Tough day at the office or crazy day with the kids. For one reason or another you have a bad day and need some kind of pick-me-up. Thank goodness for gluten-free indulgences, right?

If life seems to get you down every once in a while, maybe the solution lies in a little gluten-free “you time.” At the end of your bad day, make it a priority to get at least 30 mins of good, old-fashion alone time to just relax and think (or not think!).

Close your bathroom door, light some candles, draw a hot bath, and pour some of this into your tub: 100% Pure Kids Yummy Ice Cream Bubble Bath- available in Mint Chocolate, Strawberry, or Vanilla flavors. (PS. Why do all fabulous & fun products always seem geared towards kids?! We adults should feel like we can have fun too!!).

This fabulous bubble bath is free of all artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, parabens, synthetic dyes, synthetic chemicals, petro chemicals, and all other toxic chemicals. It’s also 100% cruelty-free, 100% vegan, and of course, gluten-free.

Take your time, put some relaxing music on, and pour yourself a glass of wine, (or in my case, some sparkling cider since I’m preggo), and feel luxurious sipping on an indulgent beverage in bath filled with bubbles. Just breathe and unwind. If you feel too restless, take the time to shave your legs without feeling rushed.

100% Pure Body Butter in Dark Chocolate After your bath, try this decadent moisturizer: 100% Pure Body Butter in Dark Chocolate! It’s 100% Natural, 100% Vegan, Gluten free, and uses organic ingredients.

This rich and decadent body butter melts on your skin to immediately soften and deeply moisturize your thirsty skin. Packed with anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins to keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant. This truly 100% Pure body butter does not contain any synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives or any other toxins and is only made with skin nourishing nutrients. All three bubble baths would mix well with this dark chocolate moisturizer!

I definitely have crazy days where the only way to solve my problems is eating a delicious chocolate-y treat. But there’s also days where the last thing I should be doing is stuffing my face with comfort-food when I feel so blue. That’s why this body butter is such a  brilliant solution. Don’t use it often and only bust it out (and the bubble bath) on days you need to some hardcore spoiling, and want to avoid furthering your depression through unneccessary calories.   

Now all you need to do is get in some comfy PJ’s and put on a chick-flick (or indulge in a trashy romance novel!), and you’re good-to-go.

See, life is good again! 🙂
