How to Relax and Unwind at home by Kumiko Mae

Like this post if you love having me-time!

Hello Sunshine! I recently decided I will start my scented candle collection. I suppose, it started with this ocean box gift. But I didn’t get to roll out the desire until lately, when I found out that Gourdo has a lot of scented candles to choose from! I really like Gourdo. I should rethink getting a membership card!

As of writing, I have two scented candles to burn. I have been really stressed out lately, and I love the romanticize feel of relaxing by a candlelight. Sometimes, I even push reading a book in the itinerary, but don’t do that girls. It’s not good for your eyes.

So today, I just want to relax and unwind with you, and maybe even thank you for the warm support. Your love and continued support for this humble blog is candlelight to me—beautiful, inspiring and more often than not, the light in the dark. You know how it feels when everything seems to be wrong and you have only one right thing happening for you. That is what you are to me, my dear readers.

In line with gratefulness is having grace. The past few months taught me how to value myself, in a deeper way. I learned that though the days are long, the years are fast! Next thing we’d know, we’re different people living different lives. Did I ever imagine myself to be where I am now? No. Although yes, when I was still in grade school, I have the knack of standing in the middle of the auditorium stage and say “Thank you to my sponsors!”

Good things do come to people who wait!

But more importantly, good things happen to people who work hard. I sure did! I sure am working hard. I don’t know how else to work than with dedication, passion and a goal in mind. I’m dedicated to happiness. I’m passionate about living life to the fullest. I aim to be an example of kindness. Everything else, are treats for my soul.

In line with working hard, I just want to share with you the perfect reward for the hardworking woman. If I may say, this is the perfect partnership of passion and grace. When a person is driven to realize a dream, he or she deserves the most delicate and nurturing touch when to relax is the man of the hour.

For me, I’m so thrilled to share the perfect partnership in dreaming big and relaxing luxuriously: Pevonia Botanica Skincare’s Ligne Nymphea skin products, specifically the mild and effective silky skin body scrub* and the micro-emulsifon anti-stress massage oil*. These two are perfect together! Used after the other, these two marries the wonders of exfoliation and skin nourishment—and how it relieves stress, the number one buzz-killer of dreams!

So just to make it official, I will commit to lighting up a candle or two, and using these perfectly great together skin treats to keep my dreams alive, and my spirit uplifted for another day of chasing beautiful things.
