With moving, changing jobs, house hunting & a whole lot more going on I seem to have neglected to dedicate anytime for pampering recently. I've been sporting chipped nail polish for too long & my skin isn't looking it's best. Last night I decided to put my phone down, grab my favourite products & indulge in some beauty treatments whilst reading a magazine & munching on some percy pigs. I began by neatening up my nails - removing old nail polish & filing them into shape followed by a lick of fresh nail polish. I opted for Barry M's Gelly Polish in Dragonfruit, I think this will be the last time I reach for a pastel shade now, with the temperature dropping I'm ready for some Autumnal colours! Whilst I waited for my nails to dry I flicked through Company Magazine, I'm so sad that the October issue will be the last printed version, they're such a blogger supportive magazine & it's a shame they've had to go digital, I am looking forward to seeing what they do with the change though! Once my nails were dry I chucked in a Dragon's Egg bath bomb from Lush into a hot bath & watched it fizz around the tub. I removed my makeup with Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish & then washed my face with REN's Cleansing Gel to ensure my skin was extra squeaky clean. After a good scrub with Soap & Glory's Scrub of Your Life I hopped out of the bath & slathered myself in Palmer's Cocoa Butter which I know my skin is thankful now as it's all silky soft & smooth feeling! I then got myself a cup of peppermint tea & had an early night, something I've not done in weeks. This morning I woke up feeling refreshed & thankful for a good nights sleep - such a great feeling to start the day with!

I've been feeling run down recently but I always felt guilty for evening taking 10 minutes to paint my nails, it sounds so silly but I felt like I should have been doing something else. It's amazing how taking an hour out of your evening to treat yourself can improve your mood & generally make you feel good about yourself. I'm going to make more of a conscious effort to dedicate an evening for pampering myself, after all I need to give myself a break every now & again!

Whats your pamper evening routine?

  1. Sounds like a good evening to me! I quite like using the wife's Soap and Glory scrubs, they remind me of cola cubes from my childhood!

  5. Oh I have no routine, I grab snatched moments to try and hurriedly paint my nails etc. But if I get a mo, Lush bath bombs are fab.

  6. I have Dragons Egg and I'm so excited to try it, I think it smells incredible in the little LUSH bag alone.
