Treat Yo Self (On A Budget)


Here at Thirty On Tap, we’re big proponents of finding joy in the little things in life. Because as much as we love the occasional indulgence of an afternoon spent at the salon or a day spent shop-til-you-drop style, our wallets don’t necessarily afford or advise those to be on the reg occurrences. Not to mention, part of what makes that plush shampoo massage so glorious is knowing that it’s a semi-annual treat.

While not everyday can or should be spent Regina George style, that’s not to say we can’t or shouldn’t experience our fair share of ‘treat yo self‘ moments throughout the week. Here are some of our favorite ways to bring a little luxury to daily life without breaking the bank:

Candle+Wine+Novel Combo

Seriously, how cozy does the scent of Autumn in the Park, paired with a glass of your favorite $15 & under wine, and a night in with a compelling new read on your Nook sound?

Netflix And…M&Ms

Knowing Fuller House is here to stay another season makes binge watching Season 1 with a side of popcorn and M&Ms even sweeter.

Yoga {Emphasis On Savasana}

While there are affordable drop-in yoga classes at many local studios and gyms, we often favor rolling out our mat at home (pajamas optional), turning to Yoga with Adriene YouTube and using our practice as a means of pre-gaming a nap.

Face Mask And A Magazine

While it’s not quite a spa treatment, there’s no denying that a little at home R&R complete with a face mask and magazine still feels like the perfect pick-me-up after a long day.

DIY Manis…With Stick Ons

When you don’t have $45+ to drop at the nail salon on a fresh gel mani, look no further than those little stick-ons in the nail aisle at your local drugstore. You can also find ’em online.
