Home Spa Sundays

Lately I've started making Sundays into "me" days. During the week, I'm not very attentive to beauty routines, and by Friday I've resorted to tying my hair up and going to work with minimal makeup. To start Monday off feeling pretty and confident again, I use Sunday to pamper myself.

Sundays are for a nice cup of tea, putting on some good music, painting nails, cleaning up eyebrows, and applying a face mask. The masks I have pictured here are the Mario Badescu Whitening Mask, Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque, and Kose Seikisho Mask White.

Occasionally I'll do a little extra like the pore strips, but I don't tend to need those as I'm not prone to blackheads. I also take the opportunity to do some other chores like deep cleaning makeup brushes and ironing or de-pilling clothes.

Just the face brushes get deep cleaned today! I haven't used the eyeshadow brushes much so they just get a spritz of brush cleaner.

On side note, remember to follow VeryAmy on bloglovin' now that Google Reader is getting discontinued!

How do you spend your Sundays?

  1. Great idea! :) I love these self-pampering days too (should probably have less of them actually haha)
    Is the Mint Julep Mask really good? I've seen so many raves about it, but it's not available in Canada :(

  2. I really need to make more time to do these kind of things but Sundays end up being do-all-the-laundry and clean-all-the-house kind of days :( Bah!

  3. To my Sundays are days to study and definitely take care of my skin leaving dedicarmea completely free of makeup. And yes, I also use Sundays to give a deeper care. Coincidentally, this Sunday also washed my makeup brushes.

  5. Sundays are definitely my lazy days, if not because nothing is really open or closes early, haha. I sleep in, relax, pamper myself, eat french fries. I usually try to do my nails.
