Spa Day at Home

Was in need of some R&R this weekend, so I pulled out a few of my favourite spa essentials, and 

whipped up a cocktail to match the refreshing vibe!

My other half found these great Sparkmouth tonics in the flavour cucumber mint, which are SO refreshing. I think you can get them at Safeway here locally. I thought they'd make a great spa-inspired cocktail, mixed with gin. I added 1 oz Tanqueray gin and topped with the Sparkmouth Cucumber Mint Tonic and then garnished with a slice of cucumber and a couple sprigs of mint. By the way, if you're curious what glass I'm using for this cocktail, it's the Edge wine glass from Crate & Barrel (these glasses are also similar). A nice elevated cocktail if you want something boozy instead of the usual 'spa water' infused with cucumber or lemon.

Sipping a spa cocktail is the perfect way to pass the time as you wait for your face mask to do its magic. I tried out the StriVectin Multi-Action Blue Rescue Clay Renewal Mask, and loved that it was a massage-activated and colour transforming mask. Once applied all over the face (in a light blue), you massage it into the skin, and it turns a deeper blue! Then just leave on for 10 minutes. The formula aims to reduce the look of fine lines, enlarged pores, rough texture and dullness. I can't speak for the fine lines, but my skin definitely felt glowy and smooth afterwards.

For the full spa experience, I have my Saje diffuser to make the whole apartment smell calming. The diffuser I'm using here is the Aroma Lift Kit - Uplifting Edition, and I used 10 drops of the Spa Spirit essential oils blend that is included in Saje's Relaxation Room Calming Diffuser Blend Collection. Spa Spirit is a purifying diffuser blend that has scents of grapefruit, eucalyptus, vanilla-spice and balsam. By the way, Saje's diffuser blends are 100% natural and vegan!

Do you have a calming ritual or spa must-have that helps you relax? I'd love to hear it in the comments below!

Happy Styling! xo
