Mothers Day is fast approaching and to be honest what with everything else going on in the world I am looking forward to a little normality, maybe breakfast in bed, a roast dinner and simply just a day to slow down. We need to take time out for ourselves and right now that is going to be more prevalent than ever. If we do get housebound for a while it is the right time to get in some self care, learn something new or get your house in order, do those things you have been putting off!
With that in mind I have a whole host of things that would be the ideal self care, pampering, sweet treat for your mum or to leave as a hint if you want it yourselves!

I love a good pamper treatment and with having long hair it takes a lot of upkeep! My hair is super thick so when I found a 2 layer hair mask I knew it was something I needed to try. You wash hair as normal then apply stage 1, then apply stage 2 on top! How luxurious is it to have two treatments working together?! I generally just slop on some conditioner and go but this is a fabulous Hair Boss Double Mask that makes you take some time out! RRP: £19.99 from Superdrug

Using natural ingredients in skincare is a huge love of mine, I am a great fan of making my own face scrubs etc!

The soothing properties of the Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil has a calming effect on dry and irritated skin. Prices start from £5.99 available from Melora

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
