When was the last time you took a much needed break to treat yourself to some self-care? Your first pregnancy maybe? Taking care of yourself and keeping your stress levels in check is crucial in order to take care of your pack. It’s also the best way to avoid a mental breakdown. Raising little people into respectable humans is no joke and can take a major toll on your mind and body. So mama, we are giving you permission to leave your littles with your husband and schedule yourself a spa day – or hour, take what you can get. Some rest and relaxation will go a long way, we promise.
We are sharing our favorite self-care spots in NOLA to get your pamper on and feel rejuvenated. Everything from the best of the best facials, massages, nails, make up to hair, and more.
Bleu – We know what a time commitment washing and drying your hair can be. Save precious time and energy with Bleu’s beautiful blow outs. Leave it to the pros while you relax and unwind. Sip on some champs and catch up on your email (or even a book). Buy a bottle of dry shampoo to help your blow out last.
Poppy & Ivy Face Bar – Skin feeling dull? Missing that summertime glow? Go here for all things face – Poppy & Ivy Face Bar offers the latest treatments in facials, dermaplaning, threading and lashes. Our favorite is the Silkpeel Dermalinfusion treatment – it seriously left our skin silky smooth and glowing for the next week. Bonus: They also have *organic* spray tans.
Earth Savers – Leave here feeling like a brand new person after a relaxing and therapeutic massage. Soothe all your troubles away here with their spa treatments, and shop their store for the best products and chic gift selections. They have multiple locations throughout town.
Paint’d – If you haven’t jumped on the nail art trend yet, the time is now. The designs at Paint’d will instantly brighten your day, not to mention their amazing wallpaper (major interior design goals). The adorable boutique salon also does birthday parties and is the perfect place for a mommy and me date (scoring brownie points with your little).
Embodyment – We love this full service day spa set in a bright, modern space. Spend a few hours here getting the royal treatment for your next date night. Enjoy a facial, massage, nails, wax, hair and make up without having to hop around town. The New Orleans Mama Fix team gets their hair cut and colored here!
