To Use:
Squeeze out about 1 tbs of honey into your hands and spread on hair 🧖‍♀️. It is sticky so you may need to get your hair a bit more wet so that the honey can spread around.

SELF LOVE: DIY Tension Relief Bath Bombs 🛀

Make your own DIY bath bombs to wash away body and head tension in this easy step by step DIY beauty tutorial 😊.
The scent combination of lavender oil and peppermint oil is both relaxing and invigorating 😍.Together, they’re the perfect combo for tired muscles and minds.
:::
Supplies (for 3 bath bombs)
🔸️1 cup baking soda
🔸️½ cup citric acid
🔸️½ cup Epsom Salts
🔸️¾ cup cornstarch
🔸️2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
🔸️3 teaspoons witch hazel
🔸️1 teaspoon green mica powder
🔸️10 drops lavender essential oil
🔸️10 drops peppermint essential oil
:::
Tools:
🔸️Bath bomb molds
🔸️Large mixing bowl
🔸️Small glass spray bottle with water
:::
Instructions:
➡️ 1. Put all of your dry ingredients into your mixing bowl and mix until well combined, being careful to make sure no clumps remain.
➡️ 2.Pour the almond oil, essential oils and witch hazel into a small glass mixing bowl, then whisk until combined. Gently, pour the liquid mixture into the larger bowl with the dry ingredients.
➡️ 3.The mixture will start fizzing as soon as the liquid touches the dry ingredients.
➡️ 4.Mix with a fork (or your hands) until everything looks like it’s well combined and somewhat moist 😀.
➡️ 5.Prepare your bath bomb molds and use a spoon to fill the molds halfway. Using a silicone spatula, press the mixture into the molds firmly.
➡️ 6.Spray each mold with a small bit of water (one spray) and press down again to make sure they’re firm. Using too much water will cause the bombs to lose their fizz (and start growing out of control). If you don’t press down firmly enough, the bath bombs will not hold together.
➡️ 7.Divide the remaining mixture into the molds and again press down firmly. Spray the top with water and press down again.
➡️ 8.Close the molds, and allow them to sit on the counter for 24h to set before removing from molds.
:::
Notes
Due to the mica powder and almond oil, these bombs will leave your bath a bit slippery. So take caution when you’re getting out!

SELF LOVE: 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care pt.5

Time for 5th and last part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care with 6 more self-care tips for you!
:::
🔸️ 25. Give up the need for approval from others 😉
🔸️ 26. Be realistic. There is no person on this earth that is happy every single moment of every single day. You know why? Because we are all human 😉. The key is to stay positive DESPITE the negative situations 😀
🔸️ 27. Let go of past trauma and wounds. This can be a really tough one and it may be one of those times you need to turn to others for support. We don’t have to carry that around with us anymore. We deserve better 🤗
🔸️ 28. Find your happy place ❤. Where’s the one place you feel totally at ease, calm, happy, positive, high on life? Go to that place when you are going through hard times, or imagine yourself being there. Think about how it feels, what it smells like, what it looks like.
🔸️ 29. Remember that problems and/or tough situations make us stronger, wiser and better! We should learn from them and never give up! 😊
🔸️ 30. Have fun! 😜 Get out there and do the things that light your fire. Enjoy them, enjoy being you and enjoy your incredible life.

Hope you enjoyed all the tips how to practice self-love and that you’re gonna use them! 🤗

SELF LOVE: 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care pt.4

Time for 4th part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care with 6 more self-care tips for you!
:::
🔸️ 19. Embrace and love the things that make you different 💜. This is what makes you special.
🔸️ 20. Realize that beauty cannot be defined. It is what you see it as. Don’t let any of those Photoshopped magazines make you feel like your body isn’t perfect. Even those models don’t look like that in real life 😉
🔸️ 21. Follow your passion 🤩. You know that thing that gets you so excited but scares you at the same time. The thing you really want to do but have convinced yourself it won’t work. You should go do that!
🔸️ 22. Be patient but persistent 💪. Self-love needs to be practiced daily but can take a lifetime to master. So be kind and support yourself through the hard times.
🔸️ 23. Treat others with love and respect ❤🙏. Treat others how you want to be treated. That doesn’t mean everybody will always repay the favor, but that’s their problem not yours.
🔸️ 24. Learn to say ‘no’. Saying ‘no’ sometimes doesn’t make you a bad person, it makes you a smart person 😉

SELF-LOVE 🙏💚
Time for 3rd part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care with 6 more self-care tips for you!
:::
🔸️13. Start each day by telling yourself something really positive 🤗. How well you managed to do something, how lovely you look today. Anything that you would say to your friend to make her/him smile – tell that to yourself! 😁
🔸️14. Eat healthy! 🥦 Fill your body with food and drink that nourishes it and makes it thrive.
🔸️15. Don’t believe everything you think 🚫. There is an inner critic inside of us trying to keep us small and safe, remember about that!
🔸️16. Surround yourself with positive people who love and encourage you 💞. Support each other, help each, be good to each other!
🔸️17. Stop the comparisons. There is no one on this planet like you we are all unique in our own way and that’s what makes this world beautiful! 😍
🔸️18. Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new 🤩. It’s incredible the feeling we get when we realize we have achieved something we didn’t know or think we could do before.

SELF LOVE: 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care pt.2

Time for 2nd part of our 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care! Last week we did first 6, now time for 6 more! 🤗
:::
30 ways of practicing self-love/self-care:
🔸️ 7. Have some propper me-time. If you don’t live by yourself be open about it and simply ask your partner or roommate to leave you by youreslf because you need some time by yourself. I learned that last year to simply tell my husband that I need e.g. to watch some girly movie by myself, I leave him by himself in living room and go to bedroom to have some me-time 😉
🔸️ 8. Practice gratitude 🙏 – we have so many things to be grateful for! Your health, your close ones,  roof over your head, your surrounding… notice what you really have! 😊 So many people lack it and dream of those things!
🔸️ 9. Be creative! 🤩 Put your emotions on paper and write a story or take some paints and try painting! 🎨 If you’re not a fan of those 2 activities you can try decoupaging, knitting, taking pictures, singing, playing some instruments… there are so many ways to be creative! 🤗 This is what got me through lockdown! Coloring is what makes me relaxed, gets my thoughts away and lets me calm down so I got this BrushMe set 😀 – you get a painting with a set of paints with numbers and all you need to do is to paint right color in the right spot and you can create an amazing picture like I did here! Have you tried one of those?
#notsponsored
🔸️ 10. Spend as much time in nature as possible! 😍 Especially now, in the spring/summer! 🌞 Fresh air and nice views make us calmer and more energetic!
🔸️ 11. End all toxic relationships 😉. Anyone who makes you feel anything less than amazing doesn’t deserve to be a part of your life. If you get/havve a hater in social media – block him/her immediately. We don’t need that 🚫
🔸️ 12. Celebrate your wins no matter how big or small 😀. Pat yourself on the back and be proud of what you have achieved!

SELF LOVE: 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care

Starting today for next 5 self-love posts that I share on Thursdays we’re gonna go through 30 ways of practicing self-love and self-care 😊. Start loving yourself! That’s first step to being happy!
:::
1-6 ways of practicing self-love/self-care:
🔸️ 1. Write a love letter to yourself. Write down everything you like/love about yourself 😍
🔸️ 2. Learn when to stop and relax. We all live in crazy speed and that’s not healthy. Try to plan at least 1 day a week for regeneration when you have the time to think, to listen to music, to meditate or even to just lay down and do nothing 🤗.
🔸️ 3. Find time for your close ones. You can’t work all the time 😉. Take that 1 evening off and go out, meet with your friends, your family
🔸️ 4. Be active! Do you remember my post last week about happy hormones (if not, you should! It’s under a pink photo with a bubble gum 😉)? We’ve learned that working out and being physically active boosts production of endorphins 🤗
🔸️ 5. Learn to forgive yourself. IF you’ve made some mistake, even a big one, it’s already in the past, what is done is done. Try to draw conclusions and use it as experience of what not to do in the future 😘. But most importantly – don’t be angry with yourself!
🔸️6. Have good sleep 😴! It is highly important to function well! What can you do to sleep well? Don’t dring too much coffee or black tea, try not to stress that much and don’t work too much 😅
