Spa day at home + DIY ♥

This post will be how to have your own spa day at home, for cheap! I will also be showing you some lovely DIY's. I just pampered myself their and i'm going to show you how to yourself! This is perfect if you just want some "Me time" and just to relax. Lets get started...

(1) FACE -

(a) Pour some boiling water into a large bowl, around half the way. Place a cloth over the top of the bowl, making sure the water doesn't touch the cloth. Put your face onto the cloth, and stay there for around 5 mins. The steam will open up your pores.

(b) Use a cleanser for your face, to get rid of any dead skin cells or impurities in your pores.

(c) Apply a moisturizer to moisturize your face. Some cleansers can dry your skin.

(d) Apply a face mask, or make your own. I have a post for it which you can check out here.

(e) Place 2 slices of cucumber over your eyes for a refreshing and cooling effect.

(f) Rinse off after 20 mins.

(2) BODY & HAIR -

(a) Run a nice warm bath, and pour in some nice smelling body lotions or bath bombs. Light candles and place around the bath.

(b) Wash your hair with shampoo, and apply conditioner. Rinse off.

(c) Dry yourself

(d) Rub on some sweet smelling moisturizer

(e) Let hair dry naturally, up in a towel.

(3) NAILS -

(a) Wash your hands. 

(b) Take some warm water and pour it in a bowl. Put your fingers in and leave for 3 - 4 mins to soften nails + cuticles.

(c) Take a cuticle stick and push back your cuticles.

(d) Clean your nails with a nail brush.

(e) File your nails. Do not go back and forth. Go one way when filing.

(f) Paint your nails the desired colour you want to paint them.

(g) Let them dry and wah - lah! Perfect nails!


Spa water is actually cucumber water, but that's what they call it in spa's. Its really yummy, and very good for you and refreshing. Try it out!


- Half stick cucumber

- 3 - 4 tsp sugar

- 2 glasses water


(1) Juice the cucumber with a juice maker

(2) Pour into bowl

(3) Add the sugar and water

(4) Mix really well.

Drink up! Its so yummy and so simple to make.
