There’s nothing better then to pamper yourself when you are feeling either poorly, stressed or just want some personal TLC. I have the past couple of week been feeling like that, pamper evening is when you get need some personal me time where you can forget about the outside world and think about you. So with an evening free as Richard (hubby) was working late I thought I’ll do a pamper evening.
First up is relaxing in the bath:
I choose for my bath, Senspa bath salts, Lush Shoot For The Stars Bath bomb and Lush Lemon Fun Play-doh. I have been reading how adding bath salts to your bathtime can help dry skin and aching joints, my mum is always telling me to use this.
The Shoot For The Stars bath bomb look a little like this:
When put under the tap rainbow colour came pouring, the water turns to a dark bluey colour. It was pretty and smelt amazing.
No bath time or pamper evening is complete without some candles:
Ok I don’t have a picture for this but I like to put on some ‘spa music’ when I’m in the bath, the deep mediation music that send you off to sleep.
I spent roughly 40 minute in the bath, it was enough to de-stress me and for my skin to be re-hydrated.
Once out I like to do a top-to-toes body skin care, starting with a face mask:
I used the Origns Drink Up 10 Minute Mask. Scary picture of me wearing it.
While I had the mask on, I then used Champneys Relaxing Body Butter, this is a brand in which I recently started using and I’m addicted too. A really lovely body butter.
Ok no pamper evening would be complete without your onesie, yeah laugh at me but let be honest wearing it can make you feel all warn and snug.
Don’t ask me what I was doing with my hand in the air.
I felt a little hungry after all that self-indulgence so I made some dinner which was homemade chicken korma – yum!
I turned that to this:
A really simple and an easy meal to make, oh and it delicious to eat.
After all that, I simple flopped down on the sofa and watched some old Downton Abbey.
I hoped you have enjoyed my pamper evening and perhaps has giving you a few ideas on how to pamper yourself one evening.
