This is my end of summer and going into the autumn look. Those if I\'m honest, the day we took these photos felt like we were still in the middle of summer and Autumn was just a distant dream. ⠀
I\'m a little late to the linen dress trend that been filling up my Ig feed this summer. Still better late than never, here\'s a linen \'inspired\' dress from Primark. I say \'inspired\' as I don\'t think its strictly a linen dress and its proberbly some cheap knockoff.⠀

With Autumn just around the corner, It got me thinking of September/Autumn fashion and how I\'m looking forward to saying goodbye to my summer dresses and hello to oversize jumpers and cosy cardigan. I\'m trying to reclaim my love for the cardigan, a childhood fave of mine which I have seen to outgrown as I got older. ⠀
Starting with this Sainsbury TU embroidery cardigan which is so lovely to wear. I\'m now looking forward to wearing more cardigan throughout Autumn. Bring it on. ⠀

When your husband surprised you with a big bouquet of flowers and your first thoughts is - quick let me put on a pretty dress and take a photo of me holding it!⠀
(The only problem with that - you look tired on photos hence me hiding behind this bouquet.)⠀

A couple weeks ago, out of nowhere a butterfly flew into our home. This got me all emosh and I was certain it was an omen - a good omen. My husband just wanted it out of the house, but I wanted to keep it.⠀

This butterfly picture was at London Zoo. ⠀

5 Ways to Create a Perfect Evening Ritual

We are always told on how to create the perfect morning rituals, but what about creating an evening ritual? Here are 5 ways to create a perfect evening ritual.

Magazines columns and blog posts are filled with pieces of advice and tip-bits on how to create the perfect morning rituals. But I find myself asking, hey what if you’re not a morning person and more of an evening kind of girl?

Well, I am anyway, the whole idea of creating morning rituals sound so silly. As it usually involved doing yoga, reading a book or having a long bath. C’mon lets be realistic, who got time for that? And I don’t know about you, but doing yoga or having a long bath is the last thing on my mind. Especially as it takes me all morning to wake up.

I’m very much an evening kind of girl, that’s when my brain is alive and I feel the most productive. It also a period, before bedtime where I can try to relax and calm my body down. Despite my brain often racing at 100 mph.

I also know that soon another day will be over and a new one will be starting. And to get the most of that new day is by setting up a few easy evening rituals. The kind of easy rituals where you will wake up all refresh and happy. You have a spring in your step and a song in your heart (how anyone can have a spring in their step first thing morning I will never know!).

Here are 5 ways to create perfect evening rituals that will make you feel more productive and happier in the morning (if that possible!). These are so easy to do and they should make you appreciate the evening much more.

Turn off the laptop and use pen and paper instead:

I bet you didn’t think I’d be suggesting this, did you? Whenever someone talks about creating evening rituals, it always filled with, ‘turn off all electronic devices and listen to the voices in your head’. Yeah, ok I am saying this, but instead of listening to voices in your head – perhaps take the time to do some handwriting notes. Find a quiet corner and just write down all your ideas or write down on what happened throughout your day. As boring as it sounds, it does lift the weight of your shoulder and can help you start anew. Plus, if you are stuck for an idea you have a whole handwritten notebook of ideas.

Have a nice long shower:

Once you put the kids to bed and the dishes are in the dishwasher, slip away and give yourself a long shower. I don’t know about you, but I love showering in the evening as then you can go to bed all fresh and clean. It also helps to make me feel a little sleepy. I also use a lavender lotion that helps relax my body, ready for bed.

Give yourself a tarot Card Reading:

This is a little bit of fun and it also a way to get an hour of peace in the evening. I like to give myself tarot card reading, no I haven’t gone crazy. In recent time I bought myself some tarot cards and they have been really spookily accurate about what been going on in my life. I believe in your subconscious getting a message from your personal spirit guide (No, I really haven’t gone crazy!) and I have found the tarot cards has helped. If it all a little gipsy for you, don’t be. It often just fun to see what the cards say and to look at the pretty pictures.

Read a book:

See, this has to be in here somewhere didn’t it? But curling up in bed or when you have the place to yourself and have the chance to read a book is pure bliss. Your body can relax and unwind. Your mind is open to imagination and you are drawn into that world in what you are reading. Studied has shown that people who read the last thing before often feel more productive the next day.

Pamper yourself:

If you do decide to have a nice long shower in the evening, then also give yourself a little pampering. Even if all you do is apply night-time cream; that still pampering. The skin heals itself when you are asleep so if you can pamper yourself then you are helping your skin heals. Whenever I give myself an evening pampering I always wake with soft skin.

Those are my 5 ways to create a perfect evening ritual. Let me know if you are going to do any of these.

    Nice list – I do love a pamper, and it’s a nice reminder to switch of my laptop and mobile!

    We all need to slow down in the evenings although it’s the time when most of us get a lot of stuff done without interruptions!!

    My perfect evening definitely involves a book – there’s something about reading in bed at night that makes me drop off to sleep so easily!

    I am all about the long showers in the evening. Something transformative about washing off the day and refreshing the mind and body. Great tips!

    Nice post, especially the tarot cards. It’s my favourite, I just don’t do it every night.

    My husband thinks I’m crazy because I prefer to take notes on using a pen and paper instead of my computer or phone. I love my bullet journal and hand written notes and checklists. I will remember things if I write them down, but will forget if I just type them out. I also thinking putting down the phone for at least a half an hour before bed is a great practice. It kind of frees your mind!

    I love to turn off my phone at night. It gives me time to relax and spent time with my family. I will try to put myself into a routine I can do evey night. So I can have something to look forward after a long day at work. I will take some of your idea.
