I LOVE to travel. Travel changes our lives!
So recently I stayed at one of my fave hotels that you can always count on…Hampton Inn. While I love staying at a luxury hotel, I also love a good basic hotel. I look forward to staying there, know what to expect and know where everything is at the hotel.
The best part when time allows or I get to check in early or have a morning or night turn my room into a spa. Here is what I like to do and perhaps turn you on to some of these ideas too.
I always pack epsom salts, a luxe bath bomb and a mini bottle of bubble bath. You never know when you might just have time for a relaxing foot soak or bubble bath.
I also pack a hair conditioning treatment and turn the hotels shower cap and a blow dryer into a salon like treatment to my hair.
Next, I go to the hotel’s coffee pot and hot water carafe refreshment stand and get some hot water, lemon or lemon packet and pour myself a up of hot water. Drinking hot OR warm) lemon water is wonderful for hydration as well as for digestion especially at the beginning or end of the day.
I also get a kick out of the adorable paper cups and cup holders they have for guys and gals. Too cute!
Next, I love to wash my face before bed and treat myself to a face mask! Feels so good.
Sometimes I have forgotten to pack my makeup remover so I LOVE that the hotel as they usually have Makeup Wipes for us in the bathroom. So awesome and of course to the rescue!!!
I hate and HATE going to sleep with makeup on and have not done it since I was around 20 years old after a late date. Ya gotta clean your face girls!
They also have a variety of newspapers I can get caught up with on the national and international news in print.
When time allows I like to use their special soaps that look like this. The soap bar works wonders for deep cleaning makeup brushes in a pinch. Especially if they get really dirty while you’re making up on the road or you traveled with them dirty and have some sprare time to refresh and clean them.
It also makes a nice bath bar. I love to rub those soapy bumps on my butt and thighs! Revs up circulation too!
I also like to use the honey packets from the breakfast area for tea as a hydrating skin softening treat in my room and add rest in a cup of hot chamomile tea before bed.
As you CAN create a spa in your room and pamper yourself when you travel for work or play too. Take care of your body and it will take care of you!
My husband benefits from the above too. HE too has gotten in on the action!
