I'll admit it, I do love a good pamper evening and I indulge in them probably more than I should (oopsie!) So this blog post is dedicated to my idea of the perfect pamper evening!
Candles, Candles, Candles
There's nothing better than lighting some of your favourite candles to get you in a relaxed mood. Not only do they smell amazing but give your room a cosy, dimly lit atmosphere, which is also extra special in the Winter time!
Take a Bath
Baths are literally one of my favourite things to do, I could never live in a place that doesn't have a bath as I find that taking a soak in the bath really chills me out. A perfect bubble bath isn't complete without lots of bath bomb goodies to pop in and make your bath extra bubbly and smelling delish. I am also definitely one of those people that risks bringing my phone in with me so I can watch a few youtube videos or have a scroll through Instagram and Twitter. To go that extra step you could smooth on a face mask and let it work it's magic whilst you're unwinding in the bath.
Clean Pjs & Fresh Bedding
Nothing makes me feel cosier and cleaner than putting on new pjs and snuggling up in a freshly made bed straight after a hot bubble bath!
Paint Your NailsHaving nice shiny painted nails is one of the best pick me ups and as I don't always have the time to do my nails, I like to take full advantage of the times I do! My favourite polishes are basically every nude pink shade going from Essie and I also adore my Chanel nail varnish in Beige Rose. On the right photo I painted them with a nude base colour and then OPI Princess's Rule over the top!
Obviously for any pamper night, Netflix is a given so pick a film or a series and have a little Netflix binge! Currently me and my boyfriend are obsessed with Prison Break and I also love reliving my teens with epsiodes of Charmed every now and then (yep I was that weird girl at school that fangirled over Buffy and Charmed).
Now of course you can't have a Netflix sesh without the snacks can you! Some of your favourite indulgent treats make for great TV companions, a little pizza, ice cream and hot chocolate once in a while never hurt anyone...right?
Read A Book
Sometimes the best thing to do when pampering yourself is to read a magazine or a book. Take your mind from any current worries and focus on a fictional world instead! If I find a book I really enjoy reading, I can read and read and before I know it, hours have passed! A few of my favourite books are The Time Travellers Wife, Delirium, Before I Fall and The Hunger Games Trilogy.
Braid Your Hair
When having a pamper evening, sometimes I like to just get all my hair off my face (having super long hair can also be a burden). Braids will not only do that for you, but also look super cute at the same time, and they are gentle on your scalp too. It's also a great time to be able to get a bit of practice in of those braids you've always wondered how to do! Here's a link to a tutorial I did for the braid pictured.
