Okay, Courtney from Stiletto Storytime here with you for my last hour. You are doing fabulous! I mean you are reading this. At Hour 17 that in itself is an accomplishment. You have your books? Your snacks too? All the basics of readathon right? Over the years I have found that what I considered the to be the basics of readathon…well, it’s expanded a bit over time. I’m am a bubble bath addict by nature so readathon means at least two luxurious baths with whatever book I am currently working on. So part of my readathon prep is bath bombs and bubble bars. I like to go all natural so I generally go with LUSH products. For alertness try something with hints of citrus like a Brightside Bubble Bar. For relaxation I love anything rose like Rose Jam or Twilight (Not that Twilight bookies).
Another scent inspired readathon recipe for me is that I diffuse or topically apply essential oils. To wake you up try something citrus like Tangerine or Orange. Peppermint if you are really fading fast or get a bit of a reading hangover. I also love a fun combo of Joy essential oil blend and Lemon mixed together. For calming try Lavender or a blend called Peace & Calming. A cool calming combo is the blend Valor and Frankincense. When it is time to wind down when it’s all over I do a cotton ball with Lavender on it inside my pillow case.
Just a few little readathon rituals I have built up over the years. So tell me what are your beyond the basic must haves for readathon?
