#SelfcareSunday with Margaux Brooke
On those weeks when you feel like there's never enough time (i.e. every week), there's nothing more important than taking some quality 'me time' to recharge. So, we teamed up with Dr. Roebucks and a few of our friends on a month-long series to inspire your Sunday ritual and have you feeling ready to take on the world tomorrow.
This week, Margaux Brooke shares what's currently making her soul shine.
What are 5 songs that make you feel most relaxed?
Downtown - Majical Cloudz
Got To Give It Up - Marvin Gaye
Cold Love - Rainbow Kitten Surprise
Turn - The Wombats
Anything - alt-J
Anything - Philip Glass
Do you like to indulge alone or with others? Who are your self-care partners in crime?
I definitely enjoy self-care alone. I love to get massages and body scrubs solo but occasionally love a spa or mani/pedi day with my girlfriends. My go-to pamper partner is Juliana Herz.
What are your favorite Sunday treats?
I love a chocolate banana smoothie made with yogurt to make it a tinsy bit healthier.
Sometimes it’s (really, really) hard to disconnect and live in the moment. Do you make an extra effort during your “me time” to unplug & if so, how?
Usually when I go to the spa, phones aren’t allowed so it’s nice to leave my cell in the locker and enjoy the sauna or hot tub service-free.
What's your favorite part of your #SelfcareSunday regimen?
My favorite part is putting on a face and hair mask, throwing on some sweats or a robe and just laying down to read a book or watch a new show on Netflix with a cup of tea! Just writing about it makes me want to go do it…
