We all dream of kicking back, relaxing and getting more pampered than a Hollywood starlet on the morning of the Oscars, especially when life has gotten that little bit stressful. The only thing is, getting pampered to the max usually means handing over a healthy stash of cash, and that tends to stop us from being able to relax. It’s a vicious circle; especially after a day on the road with your boss who clearly got out of the wrong side of the wrong bed. What is a girl meant to do in this situation?
Well, to give you a little bit of a helping hand and send music wafting into your ears, we have come up with a few crafty suggestions to help you kick back and relax without having to worry about all that money you just spent on doing so.
Salon Hair On A Student Budget
We all love that feeling of walking out of the salon with a fresh hair do to show off; the thing is the cost. We can’t do that every time we have had a slightly stressful day. Or can you? Well, yes you can. You see, the hairdressing world is booming faster than Donald Trump’s unpopularity and that means there are plenty of students training to become the next big thing. They are also way cheaper than the current big thing. You see where we are going with this. More do. Same pampered experience. Less money. Couple this with a budget hair mask and, voila, you are going to have a totally pampered head.
Pick One, Not All
The idea of running away to a spa for the weekend is so attractive. Massages, reflexology, mani and pedi and mud baths galore. But then you see the price. Well, instead of getting the full package, why not just focus on getting one part? You will feel just as pampered after heading to the nail salon as you will getting a hot stone massage and you’ll feel just as amazing after getting your eyebrows threaded as you will after a sauna. Trust us. What’s more, you will get this feeling for a miniscule amount in comparison. Now that’s how to kick and and relax.
There are so many price comparison websites and discount coupon options to go down, it is totally possible to get what you desire for less money. You may just have to compromise on when. Sign up to Groupon or Wowcher or Amazon Local and then keep your eye out for any deals that will meet your pampering needs. It may not come on the day where your boss stressed you out, but it will happen, and that’s the important thing.
Stay Don’t Go
The pinnacle of relaxation is a holiday. Scheduling a few days away from the office and jetting off to some picturesque beach somewhere. The only thing is, well, the price. But that doesn’t mean you can’t grant yourself the ultimate in relaxation, all you need to do is change the destination and opt for a staycation instead. You can do all the things you would normally do; lounge on a beach, read a nice book, leave your technology out of reach and whatever, and you won’t have the big bill at the end of it.
