Setting the tone. Choose decorative candles that look beautiful on their own every day, then light them to give a serene glow to your space. Candlelight instantly creates an ambiance that invites and encourages relaxation. 

Treat yourself a little. Maximize this “me time” by indulging in a beauty treatment (or two!) Smooth on a hair mask for silky strands, perfect your pores with a facial or even add a pop of color with a mani or pedi, whatever is going to make you shine!
