The holidays are upon us and tis’ the season to be jolly, or for some of us, to go nuts! All of the shopping, cooking, and cleaning keeps us crazy busy. Not to mention, as women, we rarely focus on ourselves during the rest of the year... and the holidays only make it more intense. So, here at BGR! we're loving really cool brands that help you relax. For example, REI announced it’s closing on Black Friday. What!?!? It's shocking, but you know what… it's genius (and I'm sure the employees appreciate a day off to unwind).
If you participated in BGR! U's 21 Days of Clean Eating, you received a few self-care ideas, like dry skin brushing. These can work wonders - but only if you commit to spending the time on yourself. Village Naturals Therapy is another great way to treat yourself, and we partnered up with them to share some pretty epic pairings…. the right setting, your fave wine, and an
aromatic blend from Therapy that’s exaaaactly what you need. Think therapeutic bath soaks,
body washes and lotions. This particular brand is great for soothing your body after a LONG
day, and the various fragrances allows you to create whatever ambiance you’d like.
Recovering After A Race: I'm sure you know how your feet can seriously suffer after a big race, especially if the race is during the rainy/cold season. You ladies who ran Rock N Roll DC last year... I know you're hearing this! Race days like that can be pretty rough - all the more reason to relax your body. Grab your footbath, add warm water and top off with the Aches + Pains Muscle Relief Mineral Bath Soak from Therapy. This soak smells like a winter heaven (infused with Eucalyptus, Spearmint and Menthol) and your feet will thank you later.
Date Yourself Night: If you’re like us, I'm sure you'll be spending a few evenings running from store to store to find the perfect gift for your peeps. Well, after you're done with all of that giving, run a hot bath and lather up with Therapy Aches +Pains Tension Relief Body Wash. This particular wash has oils and extracts including juniper, orange and menthol... a unique mixture and scent. We’re thinking this would go great with a malbec.
Work Day Relief: This is self-explanatory! We all have hectic work days when you attend like
five meetings and your inbox has fifty-leven new e-mails. Point is, after an exhausting day at the office, you want to unwind. Really, get yourself a glass of Five Hands Chardonnay, and volun-tell your significant other that he or she will be a masseuse for the night. Try out the Therapy Aches + Pain Nighttime Relief Hand & Body Lotion... You'll sleep like a baby...just make sure you don't oversleep for work the next day.
Just a few suggestions, and if you decide to try it out, there is a $1 off coupon that you can
download (because you know during the holiday season every dollar counts.)
