The Perfect Pamper

Today, I officially start my second year at university. Half of me is excited to get back into the swing of student life, the other half of me wants to crawl into bed and not think about the endless assignments and projects that await me. Last night, to take my mind of all things university, I decided to have a little pamper evening for myself.

The first thing I did was have a relaxing bath. I used The Comforter bubble bar from Lush and crushed this in my hand under the running tap to create some amazing and beautifully smelling bubbles. Just like it's name, the bubbles and the smell it produces is so comforting. Along with the bubble bar I also used a bath bomb, again from Lush, this being Twilight. The scent of this bath bomb made me feel both settled and tired, definitely a good choice before bed as it has a hint of lavender. To make my bath that little bit more relaxing I also lit a few candles, setting a peaceful mood whilst I read my book. I've just started to read Three Sisters, Three Queens by Phillippa Gregory, I'll let you know how I get on.

After my bath, I popped on my pyjamas and decided to paint my nails in the shade Fifth Avenue by Essie. Whilst waiting for those to dry it I read more of my book and scrolled online. Once my nails were dry I then applied my Simple Night Cream, blog post about this here and settled down for the night with a cup of tea ready to watch a film, I decided on Home Alone 2 and now I feel super christmassy...is that a word?

As daft as it may sound, having a bath in my flat is sometimes a lifesaver. Both my bathroom at my parents house and student halls last year only have showers. Having a bath this year feels like a dream come true as I can finally just sink and relax, even if I am scared to have one because of the water meter.

What do you do when you need to have a pamper? If pampering isn't your thing, how do you relax instead? Let me know!
