Mother's Day Mini Spa Day at Home

Still trying to figure out how to wow mom and spend some quality time together for Mother's Day? Keep on reading! I love doing mini spa days on any given weekend: it's a nice way to decompress and take some 'me time' from the comfort of my home. So I thought hey, why not fancy it up a bit and do something similar for Mother's Day? After all, I bet mom could use some R&R too.

Want to do your own mini spa day for Mother's Day, here's some things to have on-hand:
  1. Mimosas
  2. Loose leaf tea (I love TWG Tea's Tea Party)
  3. Set of tea cups & tea pot
  4. A stack of the latest magazines
  5. Macarons, earl grey scones & cucumber sandwiches 
  6. Sheet masks (try For Beloved One or From Beloved Girl)
  7. Small rolled towels
  8. Toe Spacers
  9. A selection of nail polish colours and top coat
I thought it would be fun to do afternoon tea-inspired drinks and eats for a Mother's Day spa day. Cute little macarons from Laduree, some homemade earl grey scones, and of course the best tea. I really love TWG Tea's Tea Party, it's a favourite alongside Little White House Co.'s Cream of Earl Grey. If you want some ideas of cute and fashionable eats, you can also check out this post and this post to see some of my past afternoon-tea inspired parties. Also, have a selection of nail polishes on hand to choose from, some magazines to peruse (and commentate on vocally, of course).

It wouldn't be a spa day without some face masks too! I've been using For Beloved One's Hyaluronic Acid GHK-Cu Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Masks and For Beloved Girl Extreme Moisture Mineral Cloud-Silk Masks on some of my weekend at-home spa days, and they're great! The Bio-Cellulose mask has the strangest (read: coolest) texture I've ever seen in a mask. It's not the usual fabric feel: it's very hard to explain - you need to try it to see what I mean! Unlike regular sheet masks, it's made of nano-scale organic fibres produced by compound microorganism bacteria fermentation. Sounds intriguing right?? So cool. I really liked how it felt when I took the mask off too, it doesn't leave too much residue behind, and skin feels super hydrated and supple. I've never used that word before seriously, but it's exactly how my skin felt! If you want something a little more familiar, the Cloud-Silk masks would be a good choice for your spa day. They have that thin woven fabric-feel that a lot of sheet masks have. I like this one better than most though; it's super thin, so that it barely feels like it's on your face! It's definitely the most comfortable face mask I've tried.

It might be a good idea to have a few choices of face masks on-hand, so mom can choose the one she likes best (unless you already know which one that is!). Once you've decided on a face mask you want to use, follow the directions for applying it, then sit back, relax, pick up your mimosas and cheers!

Take a look below for a closer look at the face masks, and everything else for your mini spa day at home. Hope you all enjoy your Mother's Day with the fabulous and inspirational women in your life!
