I’m going on a spending-ban (more on that later) so you will be getting a load more lifestyle posts from me.
My other half was away down in England this weekend, and I thought I would take full advantage of a while night to msyelf. While I think spending time with your partner is very important, a bit of ‘me’ time every now-and-again can make a big difference. So this is my guide for a brilliant night in;
I started by popping into Lush and picked up “The Comforter” bubble bar. I know you can say this about pretty much everything from Lush, but it smells amazing. It really is comforting, and it bubbles up brilliantly. So go ahead and treat yourself to something lovely from Lush, or some nice bubble bath or whatever takes your fancy.
While my bath was running, I slapped a self-heating face mask on, and lathered my hair in this Tony & Guy Nourish Reconstruction Mask. I’m not sure the face mask did anything, but it did feel nice and the self-heating element was rather relaxing. However, the hair mask made my hair feel amazing, and I didn’t have to use too much either. Would recommend it to anyone with dry or damaged hair (Or both like me!) I’m sure this isn’t essential to a brilliant bath, but I really do recommend making the most out of your bath time.
Now you just have to relax, make the most of your time alone. I took my Macbook in with me, popped it on the toilet seat and watched the latest episode of Americas Next Top Model (I’ve become addicted, no idea why!) If you don’t have somewhere far enough away from your bath to pop your laptop, please do not take it in the bathroom with you. A relaxing night is not worth a broken laptop!
After my bath I lathered my skin in Soap and Glory’s Sugar Crush Buttercream and got into my PJ’s (Primarks Love to Lounge range is brilliant at the moment)
Then you just need to put your feet up! I ordered myself a pizza, lit every candle I own, made a hot chocolate and lined up a load of films to watch on SkyGo.
So that’s my recipe for a perfect night of me-time. I’m sure I’m not the only one who likes a night to myself every now and again, what do you guys do for you me-time? Let me know!
