Well, the weekend is pretty much over. It’s enough to make you want to pull the sheets over your head and loudly list all the regrets you have about everything you did (instead of the things you set out to do) yesterday. Well, friends, don’t mope! There’s always next weekend for that stuff. Forget your worries and get into Sunday Spa-Day, which has winter-combating moisture in mind, as well as a little late-'90s rom-com styling for your entertainment—that’s right, 1997’s Julia Roberts/Cameron Diaz/Rupert Everett singing spectacular, My Best Friend’s Wedding.

With Julia’ no-muss, no-fuss—except, of course, when it comes to breaking up her best friend’s wedding—vibe in mind, this weekend’s products are of the easy-luxe variety.

Scrub down with Earth Tu Face’s hydrating and exfoliating Sea Salt Scrub. If you’re like Alessandra, you’ll want to use the whole jar in one go, because it’s just about the best thing ever, and if you’re like anybody else on this planet, you’ll enjoy the thick granules cleaning and detoxifying your bod, while letting the organic safflower and jojoba oil soak in. It’s infused with bergamot, lemon, and basil, so you’ll smell delicious, and feel delicious (and smooth), too.

Massage Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser into your damp skin, letting the refined French green clay, vitamin C, black pepper (circulation!), sandalwood (anti-microbial, helps soothe irritation/inflammation), jasmine, and frankincense (astringent and allegedly anti-wrinkle!) do their thing. Then, rinse off. Nothing lasts forever.

Apply a generous layer of Eve Lom Moisture Mask to your cleansed face and let it be. The mask is a leave-on, so leave it on (tissue off excess if you feel so inclined) while you watch Rupert Everett be so charming it hurts. The mask replenishes moisture and increases cellular renewal for more radiance, so you just lovingly layer some on and you're good to go. And by go, we mean of course, lie around your house and watch the 90's movie magic happen.

Part your towel-dried hair into sections and spray Phylia de M.’s magical Connect Treatment directly onto your scalp. The 100% organic treatment detoxifies, repairs, and boosts cell-renewal and keratin function in your follicles, scalp, and hair. Consider this step one in your quest to achieve Julia Roberts-level bounce and shine.

As you watch all sort of comedic mishaps and one very excellent and very memorable restaurant-wide singalong, swipe on a nice, bright, eye-catching nail varnish (we’re loving Essie’s indulgently pink-red She’s Pampered and Head Mistress, which is a bloody, bold “in charge and direct” red). Red because of the aforementioned starlet's hair, and 'bold and bright' because, why not be eye-catching come Monday?

    Thanks for the spa inspiration, I just had a midweek ITG-style spa night featuring Eve Lom, Priori, Perricone and Kiehl's. Plus, glittery gold nails and Gossip Girl.
