Here's Yoanna’s hit list to create an at-home spa experience:

First, settle the mind to get in the mood..

Start with some refreshers: I love to have a mini-bar for guests and when little bottles are present, it makes it all the more adorable. Bubbly mini expressions of prosecco or an elegant rose:

I am a die hard espresso lover so let’s make Cappuccinos..

Tea accents with Floral Blooms: who would have thought but they definitely add pizzaz to a tea pop

Assortment of delicious indulges: I am a sucker for a cheese board and desserts should be simple; shortbread cookies are my preferred

I found the best Pandora station to relax: Buddha Bar Lounge Mix for a moment of zen!

I always use candles and the assortment of blends and fragrances are pretty exceptional at Cost Plus World Market.

Include your little ones for a “Girls Only” kinda vibe

Use Natural Ingredients: sugar for scrubs, avocado for moisture, lemon to remove spots, and strawberries as a mask

There's an assortment of in spa treatments for little girls also available at Cost Plus World Market

  • Bath Bombs: Bath Time Fizzers
  • Soak in some Bath Salts
  • Towels that have a character on them

My all time Favorite an in Shower Gradual Tan: St Tropez

The most convenient way to tan—simply apply in shower and rinse in just three minutes. Great for all skintones and types, it delivers a natural-looking, bronze glow and extreme moisture without streaking or transferring onto clothing. It is made with a 100 percent natural DHA and infused with sweet almond oil to nourish the skin for a smooth, soft, hydrated finish. Use daily to gradually build an intense tan.
