The same is true for you. Simply by virtue of existing as a human woman with hopes, desires and needs, here are 20 of the things you deserve to treat yourself with as soon as you are ready to do so.
Don't laugh. I once asked for this as a birthday present when I was 5 years old. Soft toilet paper is an absolute must.
Raise a glass of wine or sparkling water to at least one joyful occasion at the end of every day.
Just 20 minutes will lift your spirits, and it's totally free.
No one needs to reach you that badly — and if they do, they'll still figure out how to get in touch.
Sunday brunch, anyone? Lingering over a morning mimosa or flavored coffee and delicious croissant is the best way to indulge in a weekend morning.
Let it go. No one cares about your mistakes as much as you do, so don't let them hold you captive.
Maybe it's a touch of bronzer or a fun new eyeliner. Regardless, try to remember how fun, cheap and easy it is to play with a new look for no reason at all.
You have the time. If you don't have the time, you can make the time. The sunshine will feel spectacular on your skin.
It doesn't matter if someone isn't bringing it to you. You can whip together a fresh omelet and head back to bed for a slow-going morning with a rom-com or reruns of Frasier.
You know, the kind of shared coffee where you go for the extra creamer and the extra time with your buddy.
Speaking of extra time, do you remember how great it felt when you got a real blowout? Re-create it at home for a perky style.
That $7 rhinestone number from a bargain store might fall apart after one use, but isn't that entirely the point?
Put a few drops of lavender or chamomile oil into your suds to create something special.
If bath time isn't your thing, find a secluded spot to take a dip in the buff. It's so freeing!
Head to the salon for extra pampering, or do your own pedicure at home with a DIY exfoliation cream and a couple of sparkly shades of nail polish.
Either set out a bowl of apples for display, or chow down on a juicy serving of fresh strawberries, blueberries and cantaloupe. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
Maybe you're eyeballing a new pair of Kendra Scott earrings, or you're just perusing. The freedom from responsibility and the opportunity to imagine is all that is required.
It's practical. Totally.
Self-care isn't possible without occasionally stepping away from your darling children.
I buy my own fresh flowers every week, because I don't have to wait for a boyfriend or husband to make my house look like springtime.
