As a small business owner and blogger, when I wake up, my day starts pretty much immediately with no time for relaxing over a cup of coffee.

My mornings are consumed with walking the dog, scheduling blog posts and answering emails, while afternoons are filled with designing, shooting, editing, writing and more emails. Once Rob gets home, I do my best to leave my desk, cook dinner and spend time with him.

The one thing my days don’t leave a lot of time for is a little pampering and relaxing for myself! As working gals, I think we struggle with taking time out of our busy days to do something special for ourselves. Sadly, I feel guilty about it sometimes, like I should always be doing more and that downtime is a negative thing. A side effect of owning and running a business I suppose? But lately, I’ve been working on putting things in perspective and reassuring myself that it’s okay to do something good for myself and indulge myself in something special.

Every six to eight weeks I treat myself to a facial, but on a daily basis, I use Caress® Daily Silk™ body wash for a small daily indulgence! My mind now associates the white peach and orange blossom fragrance with relaxation — crazy how scents can do that, right? With Caress® Daily Silk™ I’m able to unwind at the end of the day and let go of the stress and pressure I put on myself. It also lets me get in touch with my girly side while my business-owner-brain shuts down for a bit! I love the rich lather of the body wash and how my skin is left feeling silky smooth for fabulous, touchable skin.

Personally, I think there’s something special about an ultra-feminine girl boss. It’s definitely unexpected and I love surprising people with what I do.

Taking a little time to treat myself each night always leaves me feeling so much better and leads to better work the next day—a win-win if you ask me! How do you pamper yourself and indulge your feminine side?


Treat yourself to the alluring fine fragrance of Caress® Daily Silk™ every day and feel truly irresistible. Refer to www.houseofcaress.com.
