One of the things that I’ve always wanted to do but have never actually got round to, is treating myself to a spa day. I see a lot of bloggers/youtubers talking about their trips to spas and they always look like a lot of fun and something I would enjoy, but I’ve just never got round to actually booking myself in. I’m determined to change that this year though, I will treat myself to a day of pampering, especially as there are quite a few spas nearby and there’s always a lot of great offers on Groupon.
My perfect spa day would start with a great breakfast of croissants, coffee and fruit juice – this is always my favourite way to start the day. There’s nothing better than a flaky French pastry!
For my first treatment, I would choose to have a back, neck and shoulder massage. I have a bad back and have done for quite a long time, although I’ve only recently found out after an MRI scan that I have a prolapsed disc which may require surgery, so I will happily try anything which can offer some relief. I’ve only ever had a massage once but it was the nicest feeling and I felt great for the next few days, so I would definitely opt to have one again.
Ideally, whichever spa I chose to visit would have a huge swimming pool and I would spend an hour or so just casually doing lengths. Swimming is a great workout for the whole body and it’s something that I rarely do anymore. It’s one form of exercise that I really enjoy and I always come out of the pool feeling refreshed rather than exhausted like I would with other types of exercise.
Finally, I would love to have a facial to finish the day off. I’ve had a facial once before and I really enjoyed it, I came away with glowing skin that felt so hydrated and it was the most relaxing 45 minutes of my life. I would definitely like to have one again, especially now my face is really dry and dehydrated thanks to the chilly weather.
Until I can organise a proper spa day for myself and a few friends, I think I’m going to make the effort to get some salon supplies and pamper myself at home, Galentine’s Day is just around the corner!
