There is nothing I love more after a long day at work than coming home, running a hot bath with my favourite bubble bath, currently Radox Feel Blissful and putting on a relaxing spotify playlist. Fairy lights on with my bath board set up like I am living in an Instagram world. Getting in to the bath and having that ahhhhh feeling when you lie down all warm and cosy with all the feels.

Once the bubbles start to melt away and the water temperature cools down it's time to get out and wrap up in the towel that's been heating up on the radiator, it's like getting a massive bear hug i love it

I do my usual routine of spraying in my Colour Wow Dreamcoat Spray which has literally changed my hair game, I have thick curly frizzy hair and this makes it the softest sleekest beauty it can be. 

Whilst I wait for my hair to dry off a little I moisturise myself with the Lush Sleepy Body Lotion which smells like an absolute dream. I then go in with all my facial products which I will share my routine on shortly, watch this space for that coming. Now I've done my skincare routine it's time to dry and straighten my hair which takes me a good 30-40 mins! Sometimes I will just blast my hair and worry about it in the morning but when I'm having a relaxing evening I like to make sure my hair is all done so I don't need to worry about getting up earlier in the morning to tame it haha.

I will then pop the kettle on and take about 5 minutes to decide what biscuits, yes that was meant to be plural, I am going to have with my Earl Grey tea. I always have an array of biscuits to choose from, I treat it like a hobby! Me and my husband then watch a tv show or a netflix series, currently watching Making a Murdered 2. 

Time for bed.... I spray my Deep Sleep Pillow Spray which really does help me get to sleep, my husband thinks it's a fad but I notice a huge difference when I don't use it. I then do my last sweep of twitter and Instagram, sometimes an Amazon shop as I love getting something delivered to the lockers I have in my work haha, it's becoming a bit of an obsession now. Then it's off to sleep ready for another busy day in the morning. 

What's your perfect relaxing evening routine? I'd love to know in the comments below.

  3. Gosh, this post made me feel like I need to relax! We moved into a new house in April after looking for months.I was so convinced it had a bath tub until we actually moved in. Of course I had it confused with another house. I miss taking baths so much.
