My relaxing evening







I tend to have a pamper evening once a week at least. An evening where I completely chill and take no notice of time and just relax. I thought this would be a nice post for today as its a bank holiday weekend and some might need a pamper evening at the end of it.

My relaxing evening routine:

I start by choosing what sort of bath I'm going to have (bubbles,bomb) and this takes a while some times. LUSH cosmetics features in my bathtime frequently and feel I can share with you my LUSH obsession. Like a lot of bloggers and LUSH lovers I have a stash in a box and I just keep adding to it, my LUSH stash box is never empty and I seem to add to it every two weeks. Tony loves Lush products too so my stash isn't just for me.

Once the bath accompaniment has been chosen the bath running begins. Whilst this is doing its thing I pop downstairs to make a green tea which is normally Twinings Salted Caramel or Cherry Bake well **yummmmm. By the time I get back to the bath its at the perfect height and ready for ultimate relaxing bathtime.

Lighting a candle is mandatory whilst having a relaxing bubble bath and along with that I either read a book which at the moment is Sali Hughes Pretty Honest and am loving! Or I watch a bit of Netflix (totally addicted to PLL). I mostly choose the book option as I find this relaxes me the most and often have to stop reading quite soon as I get sleepy.

A good body butter is the way forward to a nice comfortable snuggly sleep and have recently been loving the Soap and Glory 'The Righteous Butter' as it makes your skin super soft, smells delicious and sinks into the skin nice and fast so your pjs aren't sticking to you as soon as you put them on. 

The last step to my relaxing evening is spraying my pillow with the This Works 'Deep Sleep Pillow Spray' slipping on my eye mask and away into dream land I go. 

Do you have a relaxing pamper routine? Do you have any suggestions as to things I could add?

Happy hump day!
xoxo

  1. A long hot bath full of bubbles is exactly what I am looking forward to. After breaking my hip I have only been able to have showers so I can't wait to have a bath again.

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
