How I Recapture the Vacation Feeling at Home

Thank you to Serena & Lily for sponsoring this post.

The best thing about being on vacation, in my opinion, is staying in a hotel. In addition to not having to worry about mundane tasks like making the bed and replacing the toilet paper, among the things I love most about hotels are the luxurious linens. It may sound silly, but crisp, clean sheets, cozy bathrobes, and fluffy towels are what truly make me feel like I’m being pampered and escaping reality for a few days. Coming home from vacation can be rough – I’m neck deep in the post-vacay blues right now. But I’ve taken some small steps to make the struggle less real and recapture that hotel-like feeling of bliss in my own home, starting with outfitting my bathroom with these luxury bath towels from Serena & Lily. It’s funny how something as simple as a new set of towels can make such a big difference. But after a busy day of readjusting to work, unpacking, doing laundry, and otherwise getting back into the swing of things, treating myself to some aromatherapy and a hot bath and then wrapping myself in a super-soft Turkish Aegean Cotton towel transports me right back to vacation mode.

    I love the soft fluffy towels in hotels! They so comfortable and truly a perk, besides not having to make the bed!

    Love those towels!! Totally with you on trying to recreate vacation vibes. I literally said to my hubby that I wanted to feel like we were sleeping in a hotel room when we were doing our new bedroom.
