I absolutely love when you've had a hard day of work and you can finally give yourself that well-needed dose of R & R. I don't do this often because normally I'll have school which means a massive load of homework. I also don’t do it often because I haven't got the budget but when I do I like to really enjoy myself.
But first…I have some news! We've not completely sorted it out but I'd just like to say that:
I’M DOING MY FIRST COLLABORATION!
As you can tell I'm really excited so to help me out it would be nice if you could comment down below what type of things you should like us to do. I'd also just like to give a shoutout to GingerSnapHattie because she has this amazing blog which I really think you should check out:
She’s such a lovely girl and I can’t wait to work with her! Also, all her photos all have good quality and look so pretty. How someone can have such good photography skills, honestly I don’t know?
1. Lush Bath
I absolutely LOVE Lush, especially lush baths. I have a selection of Lush stuff from presents and things which I've bought so you can tell I do love Lush! Most of these things I have in my collection I haven't tried so I can't give reviews yet but everything I have tried I was immediately in love with. The bath bomb which I'm going to use is Butterbear which I thoroughly enjoyed. I also suggest you try out Intergalactic, it's so nice!
While I'm in the bath I’ll tend to just read a book, which isn't too fast paced, so that I don't get to worked up because I’m trying to stay calm and relaxed. However, if I don’t feel like reading I will probably watch something from my YouTube subscription feed which I will always enjoy.
2. Face Mask
Once I’ve come out of the bath, or when I’m still in the bath what I’ll do is put on a face mask. I just feel that if I’ve been so nice to my skin and made it all moisturized and cleansed, then it’s only right to do the same to my face as well. So I’ll just relax and apply my face mask whilst listening to some music which isn’t too upbeat. And then after that I’ll quickly just get changed into my PJ’s and hop downstairs.
I do love a good baking session! After I have had a nice long bath I just love to bake! To be honest the only thing I bake is The Tanya Burr Triple Chocolate Cookies because they are sooooo good! Even if you’re not a fan of cookies then I recommend you have one because they are just so delicious it’s actually unreal. Also once they come out of the oven they’ll be all nice and gooey and the chocolate is all nice and melted.
4. Scented Candle
Once I’ve finished baking I will make a Mocha (how I love a good Mocha,) and just sit down and watch TV in the living room. This will normally be with the rest of my family and currently we’ll put on X Factor but, if I’m by myself then I’ll put on Netflix and probably watch Gossip Girl (I’m pretty sure you’ve all heard about it but if you haven’t got check it out) or House of Anubis, (The story line is sooooo good!)
Once I’ve got my cookies beside me and I’ve got my tasty Mocha, I’ll light a candle and just sit and relax. I don’t really have a favorite scent because to be honest I just light whatever candle there is but, my mum has this mini candle by Yankee called Vanilla which smells sooooo good!
5. Skincare Routine
To be honest, I do this every day because I want to keep my skin all nice and healthy, but at the end of a relaxing day I like to just go into the bath room and apply my skincare. There’s just something about it I find so relaxing and then I feel that I’m finally prepped to have a nice long sleep.
What’s your Autumn evening routine?
