If you are anything like me then I bet you don't take much you time. Over the last few weeks all I have done is work, sort house things and plan for the wedding. There hasn't been much time for relaxing, so last night I went home with the intention of having a chill out night. It was the best thing I have done in a long time so I thought I would give you my top 5 tips for the perfect chill out:
Use a bath bomb or some lovely bubble bath and make your bath extra special. I like to use the Laura Mercier Honey Bath's as they are lovely and rich and you really feel like your muscles are relaxing when you have a soak in these. Lush bath bombs are another great way to spruce up your bath.
2. Turn the lights off and light the candles
Nothing chills me out more than a relaxing playlist, I have been loving the 'Relax & Unwind' playlist on Spotify at the moment. It just makes me want to lie in the bath all evening and listen.
4. Give your skin a pamper
I like to give my body a full exfoliation including my face, give myself a pedicure and cover myself in a nice thick moisturiser. You should do this all the time anyway but I think it feels even better after a long soak in the bath.
Once I am in my pyjamas and ready for bed, I like to get in the covers with a warm drink and a good book. It is so bad for you to be on your phone or Ipad just before going to bed so I try to stop using them half an hour before I am going to sleep. I use this time to read a couple of chapters of a good book. I love reading but never make time for it. That is definitely on my to do list this year.
So there you have it, my top tips to a perfect chill out night.
