Maybe it’s a ‘being over 25’ thing, but I reckon you just can’t beat a good night in. Here’s what I like to do for the ultimate night of relaxation.
A lush bath
This goes without saying – it’s the law that if you have a blog you have to like Lush, isn’ it?! It was my birthday last month and I was very happy to be given quite a few bath bombs. I really like Honey Bee, and The Comforter bubble bar.
Flicking through a magazine
I like a bit of light reading material, although lots of women’s magazines drive me up the wall. I like to give the body shaming glossies a miss and go for some home interiors instead. One of my favourites is Style at Home. It’s aimed at a younger audience, so it provides lots of affordable home inspiration. It also has a food section which has loads of easy midweek meals. Bonus!
A good cuppa
Nothing says relaxation to me like sitting down with a hot drink. When I’m having a night to myself I often treat myself to something a little fancy – my current tea of choice is the Tea Pigs apple and cinnamon flavour. It is SO good.
No night in is complete without a little bit of Netflix, and the more trashy the show the better. Pretty Little Liars would be my viewing of choice, but a feel good film would do the trick just as well.
You’ve got your TV show on and you’ve got your drink – now you just need some treats! I try not to have chocolate or biscuits in the house all the time because I have no self control, but I make sure I pick some up for a night in. Maryland cookies or those giant Cadbury caramel buttons are my absolute favourites.
I feel relaxed just thinking about it!
