I must admit that I like men – that are willing to spend money on me – don’t have be loads, but just that little extra once in a while. And I had a couple of big spenders too – maybe I will come back to them another day, if I can find a suitable music cloud – because now I used the best one here.
But this post is all about me being a big spender of time on me and with myself – that is me – because since 2009 when I retired, I owe all time that is given to me and I can spend it however I want and that is what I do, except when I go and visit mum, but it’s my choice too so.
So we can say I’m a big spender when it’s about me. Once a month – every 5th week do I have what I call a SPA day – nothing fancy, nothing very exciting – it’s really a very messy day for my white tiled bathroom. Because it means hair coloring and chocolate body scrub … and I’m a messy person when it comes to showering, all over the place.
When I was making the big bucks over in UK and on Ireland I let the professionals do it for me – but those days are gone. So it’s all down to DIY. Full body massage every week was one of them.
Then I’m impatient too, so this with soak in a warm bath with loads of candles lite and soft music, forget that. I haven’t used a bathtub for over 30 years. I’m a shower girl, thinking about the environment.
My SPA days starts with the hair coloring – then the body scrub and the whole bathroom smells heavenly of chocolate and the shower is an absolutely mess, with chocolate on most tiles.
SPA-day also means that I will use a body lotion with fragrance, something I never use daily – because I spend a lot of money on my Edt’s and I don’t want any other fragrance to collide with the expensive drops. So I use both none fragranced body lotion and deodorant daily. Last time I indulged my skin in the luxury of “SUNG” by Alfred Sung.
Ladies, do you know that body lotion works best if the skin is still damp – so never dry the skin before putting on the lotion, the professionals have taught me that.
I do a deep cleaning of my face – scrub, serum and finishing of with some of “Siana” miracle day cream. Never wear full make up daily – just serum and Garnier’s BB cream, that makes magic with my skin and gives it that velvety feeling and it makes it glow. Make up is for special occasions those days. Not at all like my aunt Thea here and I haven’t worn lipstick since I was about 25, because I was so in love and he didn’t like to kiss me if I had lipstick on and I never put back to on again.
Ladies, the best day and night cream there is on the market – it’s Aldi’s – Siana - and it’s a budget brand – if no Aldi shop where you are – you can get both on Ebay.co.uk for about £6.00/62.00SEK/$9.52/€7.15 – brilliant product, the smell could be a bit nicer, but the product spot on.

It also means that my poor feet will get soaked and taken care of – my foot balls are numb, aftermath after the chemo. Massive problem for me –because I love walking and I’m not able to walk so much as I have done. Terrible, very painful and when I go out for a longer time, I need a pair shoes for changing – so the pressure on my feet will change. Nothing to do about this problem – have to live it. Tough, I tell you – but so long it doesn’t bother me when I go to bed or disturb my sleep .. I’m happy.
Before the cancer treatments I loved my footbath that keep the water warm and massaged my feet, now I can’t put it on vibrations anymore – because it give my feet even more pain. Yes, my foot SPA has remote control *smile
After to hair, body and feet got theirs .. I jump into something more comfortable and it’s not into ruffles and black laces.
I crawl up in my big bed with loads of fresh fruit and I catch up with all the missed episodes of my favorite TV-series; Castle, Revenge, Law & Order; SVU, Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, The Mentalist, Scandal and Suites.
In the evening mostly I make a “rushy” omelet, always perfectly made thanks to Tupperware and a mixed salad .. and then I go back to watching more missed episodes with a big bowl of ice cream.
That is one of the best spent days …
