The Busy Girl’s Guide To The Ultimate Self-Care Day

You need a break. But there’s not a tropical vacation or evening with the girls scheduled anywhere on your calendar.

We get it and designed this little guide just for girls like you — like all of us! — that need a moment away from the toddler, the email box, or whatever else may be keeping us from our best selves.

Find a morning or afternoon that’s free (pro tip: schedule it!) and don’t let it go to waste. Read our guide, shop a few light groceries or washable silk duds like these beauties from Lunya below and hop back to bed.

Here’s our luxe and healthy checklist for the girl who needs a break…

Hey, readers: Don’t miss the opportunity to win your own sexy, simple and washable silk pajama set below!

And the uniquely washable fabric means we’re not adding a dry cleaning day to your self-care plans! Lunya’s sleepwear is designed with real life in mind, meaning comfortable-to-sleep-in pieces that are easy to care for and look incredible.  CHECK OUT


The Prima Romper | This adorable and easy-to-wear Pima Romper from Lunya is about to become your happy place. It’s light, a dream to wear, the cut is easy and the pockets are a real bonus. Never mind the fact that it takes five seconds to dress for this self-care moment. We love it in black, too.
Washable Silk Slip Dress | We didn’t say your self-care moment had to be alone. Either way, this elegant washable silk slip dress is as good as sleepwear get. Feel like a million bucks without anything over the top like bows or layered straps, sleep the whole night through in it and – surprise – there are actually pockets on this piece as well. CHECK OUT


Self-Care To-Do List

doodle. dream. write. | You’ve heard about how healthy a journaling habit can be, but who has the time to write? Today, you do. Break out a journal and a pen and let yourself write without judgement. Doodle, dream, make lists, write prose – whatever makes you happy. CHECK OUT

Daring to RestCrack A Spine | Reading is good for your mind, body and soul, but it’s the first thing off our to-do list when we get super busy. A few hours in bed with that novel you started over the summer is just what the doctor ordered. We’ve also been obsessing over this self-care masterpiece, Daring to Rest – a fitting title and full of plenty of tips to carry you through the week. CHECK OUT

actually. SLEEP. | Busy minds want to stay busy, but if you’ve carved out a day to indulge in some self-care make sure you actually take the time to sleep! Whether it’s a power nap, yoga nidra, or just an excellent (and early) night of deep sleep, this is the most key part of our self-care moment. Let your body shut off and heal. READ MORE
