Sometimes we get so busy with work, school, family and the everyday hustle and bustle of life that we get “stressed out, over worked, uptight, and wound up” to take a minute and indulge in ourselves.  This has been a very busy summer for me, working 5 days a week in a new city, and trying to balance my career with my personal life. Let’s not even mention my so-called “love life.”

Despite all of this, it’s important to me that I take days to myself, scheduled for relaxation. Upon roaming around my new neighborhood in Queens, I found a nail shop that does manicures for $6! Yes, that is not a typo! They merely charge the same price as a $5 footlong! I have made it my business to get a manicure every week! They do a really great job, I relax and read magazines and talk to my manicurist Deena about reality T.V. shows. You’ll be surprised how relaxing it is!  

As I mentioned earlier, I often find new places by roaming around. I think taking a walk is very valuable. You’re getting exercise as well as fresh air! There’s nothing more refreshing than getting out of the house, away from the computer or away from your desk at work. I often take walks during my lunch break at work.

Speaking of food! I love food! And I love to eat! Who doesn’t? Treat yourself to whatever it is that you’re craving at the moment! For me, its frozen pizza! Don’t ask why, but I’ve been eating cheese pizza I popped out the oven in 15 minutes and curled up on the couch watching YouTube Beauty Gurus or reality TV! That’s my type of night!

I do manage to explore other neighborhoods though by transit. Don’t worry the ride won’t seem painstaking if you read a good book along the way. I’ve conformed! I’m currently reading Fifty Shades of Grey & I must say BELIEVE THE HYPE! I want a Christian Grey in my life! I have it on my ibooks app on my Iphone 4!

I hope these tips helped you guys! Leave me a comment and let me know how you pamper yourself!

  1. Such a lovely heart-warming post! I'm currently at home on holiday from University so not too stressed at the moment, but during those highly tense days at Uni i like to grab a carton of ice cream and sit with a spoon, watch tv and just eat the whole thing haha! I also like to go thrift shopping once in a while by myself, that's my pampering just some alone time! I love your blog!

  7. These are such great tips, I love doing things like that. The only bad thing is that they're the best when unplanned and because of that they don't come around too often :(

  11. love your ideas!! i am so jealous of your $6 manicures! your summer sounds a lot like mine, exploring-- trying new restaurants and staying busy, with a little bit of pampering for yourself!

  14. Great nail colors. Exercising may be an unconventional form of pampering, but I definitely consider it along the same lines. Exercising is something that you do for YOU.

  20. Great post, thanks again for stopping by our blog. I am obsessed with nail polish, i literally have enough colors to do my nails a different color every day for at least 3 months. But I try and make time for two manicures a month, and sometimes more depending on my plans.
