One of my favourite things to do in my spare time is to have a pamper night, whether that’s after work or on the weekend I love having some ‘me’ time and switching off from my daily routine. In this post I thought I’d discuss what I like to do to relax and hope that it inspires you to have some chill time and take the time to look after yourself.
1) Are you a film or book person?
Personally I’d say I’m 50/50 dependant on my mood! Sometimes I reach for a well loved movie such as Wild Child (definitely 1 of my top 5 chick flicks) but at times I love starting a new book. The book I’m currently reading is Small Great Things written Jodi Picoult, a story that challenges prejudice, race, and justice.
2) Battle of the face masks
There are so many different face masks available in stores recently. I have been enjoying the Garnier Moisture Bomb and the Loreal Pure Clay ranges.
Garnier Moisture Bomb – Revitalising Mask – Perfect for a facial ‘pick me up’ for a boost of hydration. These masks are purchased individually (1 per pack) therefore I only use these about once or twice a month due to the cost.
Loreal Pure Clay – Glow Mask – This mask brightens and exfoliates skin, enriched with Red Algae extract which is known for its brightening properties – this mask leaves skin feeling clean and refreshed. With the product containing 50ml it’s recommended that it can spread up to 10 uses.
3) Bath full of bubbles
Sometimes nothing quite beats a relaxing bubble bath and you can’t not have a bath without a bath bomb, right? If you want to read more on my most recent LUSH haul click > HERE!
4) At home manicure
I’m not someone who gets my nails done professionally, therefore the only time my nails ever look half decent is when I incorporate painting my nails with my pamper routine (otherwise I’m far too lazy to bother!). I picked up these two polishes recently, both by Maybelline New York, the first is a gorgeous shade in 19 Golden Brown and the second is a 3D clear Gel Effect plumping top coat.
5) Because you can’t not pamper the rest of your body
The Zoella Candy Cream Softening Body Lotion is one of my favourite body lotions. If I’m honest I always forget to moisturise on a daily basis therefore I am always sure to add it into my pamper routine.
What do you like to do to relax and pamper yourself?
