Staycation and Relaxation with Self-Care

Written by JM Home


Posted on September 14 2020

Staycations, or holidays at/close to home, are great way to recharge and allow ourselves a short holiday without the hassle. They rarely require advance planning unless you’re going to take time off work, and they have proven to be rejuvenating for mind, body, and spirit. Our founder, Jennifer Michele, loves her staycation days, and she wants to share a few tips and things she can't live without for a restful and relaxing staycation.  


Plan Ahead

Between business and kids, my schedule is packed all the time, so I do my best to plan on sleeping in and not have a schedule during my staycation. First, I change my voicemail to say I am out of the office. Then I make meals for lots of leftovers for the kids (try not to cook on staycation time, unless you enjoy it) and I get my space ready for relaxation.

Enjoy a Few Favorites

The Plush by Apothia is my favorite new candle scent, and I love the Wave body wash and lotion. It smells like the ocean. You can find these in our Self-Care Collection

"You don’t always need a plan.  Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens.” –Mandy Hale



I like to have something to put hold a cozy bath towel, or a spa bin to showcase soaps, sponges, and bubble bath. And don't forget your carafe! It's important to stay hydrated, whether it is cucumber water or a glass of wine or champagne for a little extra indulgence. 

This experience will make you feel like you're spending a morning at the beach house . . . sun, sparkle and pure salt air . . . drifting fragrance of flowers and sea grass . . . a moment of fresh-squeezed pleasure.

"Ah! There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort.” –Jane Austen

After a relaxing spa day, I finish with a nice scent. Right now I really like IF by Apothia. Then it's a walk through downtown to enjoy a delicious gelato and relax with an evening at the beach, cozy in my favorite wrap.  


In celebration of Jennifer's birthday month, she is offering you 25% off your order. The birthday sale event lasts until August 15th. Enjoy your staycation in luxurious self-care and little touches of comfort and style.
