Mothering Day ladies. Your day. All day. There’s no doubt a specially poured cup of tea is waiting for you in the wings; maybe some decadent praline chocolates or a bunch of roses to warm your heart. But why wait for hubby or the kids to pamper you? According to nami.org ‘self-love’ is a very important part of building towards a better, more positive ‘you’. This further promotes positive relationships at home and in the workplace. And you thought the whole you-before-anybody-else-oxygen-mask-drop was just an airplane safety thing, right?!
Here are a few selfish hints to throw your way, or their way, whichever comes first – to ensure that your Mothering Day is the bubbly occasion you deserve:
- Salon Day for 1, please
Nothing says me-time like treating yourself to a couple hours of pampering at a salon. We’re thinking either a Sorbet Salon Yummy Mummy on the Gopackage for just 75 (pounds): can you say Footlogix Pedi and a full body massage? Mmm, yes! Or The Royal Spoil Package 120 (pounds), which includes a mum-tailored facial with full body massage and footlogix pedicure combo. Be warned: you’ll be walking on clouds.
- Cake it ‘til you make it:
Being a full time mum is not for the weak, or the dearly deprived of all things yummy and delish. On a day like Mothering Day, it’s about having your cake and eating it too (and then going back for a second slice because Mum calories are always forgivable). Now is the time to pick up a slice of your favourite sweet treat and eat it – alone, slowly, like a toddler at the batter bowl. You’ve earned the right Mum; and the household knows it. Let your better half get dinner on the hob while you tap a cherry blossom bath, pour yourself a glass of Merlot and finish the last three pages of chapter 13 (Mills & Boons, was it?). Don’t forget to lock the door!
- All I want is something small…
Don’t be so coy Mum. Dropping casual hints and leaving open catalogues, with your red pen casually encircling the items of desire, is really, so 2009! It’s time to make a ‘Christmas wish list’ and write down all of the dreamy gifts you’d like to see at the foot of your bed this Mothering Day. Or, go easy on your loved ones with a throw forward to www.sorbetsalons.co.uk for an online Sorbet gift card that may be purchased instantly, to any value, and can be used on absolutely anything in store – treatments and products. Delightful, we know.
- Just for the Mum of it…
Who better to spend Mothering Day with than your own Mum or aunt or sister or girlfriends – those that also experience the daily Mum-grind? Why not organise a brunch with all the Mums in your life to celebrate Mum power? And if you’re drinking a mimosa while celebrating, well then, that’s just an added bonus! Sorbet salons offer girl-time bookings too, where you and your circle will be spoilt for choice. Locate your nearest Sorbet salon for bookings.
Do not let Mothering Day pass without raising your white flag for some down time this year. Treats aside, it’s meant to be a special day with the ones that love you back; a day to reflect on the great job your doing with your little people. It’s a time to thank yourself through the ups and downs, the packed lunches and the bath times; through the late nights and school projects. You are a Mum: a beautiful, courageous, superbly sensational Mum – so go on then, celebrate your matchless Mumness with a spoil or two, or ten!
