We all deserve a little luxury in our lives. Most of us work spectacularly hard at what we do, juggling a career, motherhood, relationships, and friendships. And one thing we end up sacrificing is taking some time to ourselves. Most of us can barely remember what ‘me time’ feels like. We’re so used to putting everybody else’s needs before our own that we’ve forgotten how to treat ourselves. So, want to take some of that hard-earned cash and actually spend it on yourself this summer? Here are four luxurious ways to reward yourself for all of the work you’ve been putting in.
Book a spa break
As a professional, you probably spend most days trying to find a spare second between work and family time – but never feel guilty for taking a weekend out to spoil yourself with a spa break. We all deserve the chance to relax and unwind, and there’s no better way than with a hot tub and facial. Make certain to pick somewhere like The Spa at Galgorm, which has a suitably tranquil setting and that the champagne is available on tap. It’s entirely up to you whether you decide to go alone or invite some friends, but make sure you indulge your every whim while you’re away. Believe us, you’ve earned it!
Enjoy a bespoke entertainment experience
If you’d like an entirely new experience, how about trying something a little more adventurous? Companies like Mr Green Co offer VIP, membership-only clubs which are dedicated to offering you never-ending entertainment, bespoke promotions, and a tailored one-to-one concierge service. This allows you to enjoy high-class entertainment in a way you’ve never experienced before – with high-stakes luxury and glamour guaranteed. It’s exciting, entertaining, and unlike anything you’ll have done before. So, do not be afraid to branch out a little!
Reserve a table at the best cocktail bar in town
Is there a restaurant you’ve always dreamed of trying without ever having found the right time to go? If so, now is the opportune moment. As much as you want to be sensible, you still need to treat yourself on occasion, so reserve a table and don your glad rags. It’s entirely up to you whether you want to designate it a girl’s night or a date night – if it’s a once-in-a-lifetime treat, you really ought to make the most of it.
Splash out on the designer handbag you’ve always dreamed of
‘Work hard, play hard’ as the saying goes, and if you’re not getting to do both of those things, you’re doing it wrong. As much as we admire your ability to scrimp and save, you’re allowed to spend your earnings on yourself from time to time, even if it does seem a little frivolous. If you’ve always dreamed of owning a Birkin or splashing out on a new Christian Louboutin, go ahead and do it – that amazing purchase will make you feel happy for years to come.
What are you waiting for? Splash the cash and treat yourself to something luxurious – after all, it’s one of the perks of being a professional woman who knows her worth.
