Homemade Spa Day!

Today we had to improvise on a top 10 list item due to the GARBAGE weather so we made up Spa Day! It was awesome! The girls loved it and I can't wait to do it with Mia when she grows up. Here are our supplies: Grapefruit sugar scrub, fizzing steam tablets, homemade brown sugar scrub, bath bomb, oatmeal face mask, foot pumice, cucumbers, and homemade avocado deep conditioning treatment! They are pretty much glowing right now :)

Here they are getting thier facials. I got them fizzing tablets for 2.00 a piece at LUSH in Bell square. You just drop it into a bowl of hot water and cover your head in a towel and let your poors open right up.
Then I applied thier oatmeal banana and vanilla face mask (also bought at Lush for 5.00) followed by cucumbers to relieve any puffiness around thier eyes ;) They were pretending to have jobs, husbands and kids. Thier conversation was amazing I almost fell over laughing!

Next they got ther deep conditioning hair treatment. You mix 4 egg yolks, 4 T mayo, 4tsp olive oil, and 2 ripe avocados. Apply all over hair wrap in plastic and let it sit for 20 minutes. During which make sure to soak in a fizzing tub.

Then I cut grapefruit in half and sprinkled with sugar and they massaged it into thier skin. (This is actually amazing I tried it!) They also did a brown sugar scrub in the shower which we homemade. 1 cup b. sugar, one cup white sugar, 4tsp ginger, cinnamon, and ground cloves then gradually add olive oil for your desired consistancy.

And what spa is complete with out a cocktail (Overlake special oj and cran mixed) assorted cheese and meat platter, mixed berry platter and veggie platter?

One of my best friends and I growing up used to have spa days every friday during middle school. It was awesome! We never had the luxury of trying LUSH products though. You are a super cool nanny!
