Fact: I'm an extrovert and a planner. I love packing my schedule so I can see as many friends as possible throughout the week. When I was younger, I used to hate having nights to myself. Now that I'm older and keeping busy, I've come to really embrace my relaxing nights at home when they come around.
These nights have become a sort of self-care time for me,
so today I'm showing you a few things that make my "me-time" that much more enjoyable.
Having a scented candle burning makes me feel more cozy and relaxed. Some of my favorites include Feu de Bois, Birchwood Pine, and Santal. In a pinch, I also love placing unscented tea candles around the room.
A good book
Or a movie you've been wanting to watch. Quiet nights are the perfect opportunity to catch up on a book or movie without having to deal with any interruptions. When it comes to movies, I'm especially partial to watching old Monroe classics.
I really didn't see what all the hype was with LUSH products and taking baths but now I have totally changed my tune. Trust me, pick up this bubble bar or this bath bomb and give it a try. You'll thank me later.
No one wants chipped nails (or toenails!), so use this time to remove old polish and paint on a pretty new color. I'm loving light pinks like "Don't Call Me Baby Girl" for spring.
You've all heard me rave about face masks before. If your skin is behaving, I recommend a gentle, hydrating mask like Mega Green Galaxy Pack. If you have some problem areas, GlamGlow's masks are helpful (my favorite is Supermud). Don't have a mask? You can make one yourself - Pinterest has tons of easy recipes.
