A little bit of pampering

PrezzyBoxNot heard of PrezzyBox before?  Well, they are a great online gift shop offering gifts for all the family and for any occasion, along with days out experiences.

The last few weeks have been rather tough and stressful with one thing and another, so when the lovely people at PrezzyBox offered me a bit of pampering, how could I resist?

I received an Aroma Home, Microwaveable Lavender Scented Body Wrap …..

The Soothing Body Wrap is designed to soothe aching muscles and joints.  Helps relieve pain caused by sports injuries, arthritis, stress, strains and migraine.

Well, running around after Monkey all day I certainly end up with aching muscles and joints!  I decided that last night was ‘pamper me‘ night.

The instructions to heat the Body Wrap, containing ceramic tourmaline beads, are clearly displayed on the packaging and also shown on the Wrap label (useful when and if the box gets mislaid!).  I followed the instructions and set the microwave going and poured myself a glass of wine.  The instructions advise you to let the Wrap stand for 30 seconds once removed from the microwave and it is then ready to use.

I love the smell of lavender, it reminds me of my Granny and long hot summer days spent in the garden. So it was lovely to wrap the Body Wrap around my neck and shoulders and feel the warmth reaching my aching muscles – bliss.  I rearranged the Wrap every few minutes and found that it held its heat for some time.  When the Wrap cooled down back to room temperature I treated myself to another session on my dodgy knee.  It was wonderful, and I will definately be using my new Body Wrap a lot 🙂

There is also an added bonus!  You can actually the Body Wrap as a cooling compress.  You just place it inside a plastic bag and pop it in the freezer for a minimum of 3 hours.  I can imagine this being a wonderful treat as and when we finally get some decent hot weather!

So if you know someone who needs a bit of TLC, need ideas for Father’s Day or something different for your little people then pop over to PrezzyBox and you may well find exactly what you need 🙂

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
