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.
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!
