Home Pampering - By Guest Blogger Laura Matthews

So work is manic, the laundry is piling up and you haven’t had the time to soak in the tub for what seems a lifetime. Pampering yourself at home can be costly and seem like such an effort but when did you last make time for yourself? Follow our home pampering tips and feel refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed on a low cost budget. Set yourself aside a couple of hours, guilt free. You deserve it.

  1. Run yourself a hot bath adding bath salts or bubbles with your favorite scent.
  2. Light some tea candles around the bath, (you can pick these up pretty cheap in large packs from supermarkets.)
  3. Put on some relaxing music ensuing there is a good distance from the tub.
  4. Cleanse your face gently using either make up wipes or with your usual skin care routine.
  5. Soak yourself in the bath for as long as you wish; take pruning of fingers and toes as a sign of deep relaxation and not a cue to jump out.
  6. Whilst in the tub, exfoliate your body gently using a scrub. You can find out how to make a DIY scrub at home here.
  7. Rinse of the scrub and shave legs if applicable. Top tip- Use conditioner on legs when shaving for a silky smooth finish.
  8. Wet your hair and leave the tub. Pat yourself dry and apply moisturizer to your body.
  9. Put on your comfiest PJs- Top tip- Place them on the heater before you get in the bath for extra coziness.
  10. Put a hair mask on your hair. You can buy these pretty cheap in sachets, however you can find out how to make a cheap hair mask here.
  11. Remove all nail polish and give yourself a manicure using your favorite colour. Top tip- Apply Vaseline on the skin around the nail. If you should get polish on your fingers, it will wipe straight off.
  12. Rinse the hair mask out and leave your hair to dry naturally.
  13. Put on your favorite movie, ensuring you have tasty nibbles and a hot drink at your fingertips. Lay in bed, feeling refreshed and relaxed.

The Simmons Family Came Early…

So when Kathryn called us and said she wanted to come back to our studio for her maternity and newborn shoots we were over the moon. We previously photographed Kathryn this time last year when she came for a “Signature SchlickArt Luxury Pampering Day” with her sister-in-law. She was getting married and wanted a fun girls day out. Here is a photo from that session…

This time we planned and amazing and fun double session for Kathryn and husband Matt to come and capture a most memorable time in their lives. So we were all ready for the Maternity Session when gorgeous baby Isabeau Marie, decided she did not want to miss out on all the fun… she arrived 5 weeks early (before we could shoot the maternity session)!!!

These things always happen with best laid plans lol.

So a few days after Isabeau’s birth we decided to call Kathryn and Matt to see how they were doing. We told them about an open session date we had and asked them if they would like to turn their Maternity/Newborn sessions into a 2-in-1 Family/Newborn session. We knew Kathryn’s parents were in town visiting, so it was a perfect plan. They took the opportunity and as you can see from the images the whole day tuned out perfectly.

It’s funny how life happens sometimes!

Welcome to the world Isabeau Marie Simmons! xxx
