There’s something about wintery evenings that make it so easy to wind down and relax. I think it’s the dark evenings, over indulging in salted caramel hot chocolates and owning all the cosy loungewear. Considering I usually spend most of the winter hibernating inside I have pretty much perfected my wintery evening routine.
Create a cosy atmosphere – The first I do when I get home is make the house all cosy. I love to turn on all of the fairy lights, have a quick tidy up of any clutter and go around lighting my favourite comforting candles. I’ve recently added a few extra cushions to the sofa and picked up the fluffiest blush pink blanket I could find! These simple little steps instantly brighten my mood on those dark wintery evenings and make me feel nothing but happy to have an evening inside. Here’s a whole cosy night in to-do list!
Skin care routine – I’m the first to admit that self care is our last thought when we start to get overwhelmed. With not much else to do on a cold, winters night there’s no excuse not to look after ourselves a little more. I love making a hot cup of tea and adding a few extra steps to my skincare routine for the ultimate pamper. I’m loving the Glossier Moon Mask and Super Bounce Serum for fresh, glowing skin come morning.
Take some time out for yourself – After I’ve done my skincare routine I love to curl up on the sofa under a pile of blankets and watch some TV. It’s totally my guilty pleasure and something I rarely have time for! If I’m not watching TV I’ll be under a layer of Rose Jam Bubbles in the bath, or in the kitchen baking some maple and cinnamon granola for the week ahead.
Prepare for a good nights sleep – I have found the dreamiest duo for ensuring I get a good 8 hours. I can’t sleep without spraying the This Works Pillow Spray which has the loveliest lavender scent. I always be sure to moisturise using the Lush’s Sleepy, it’s the only moisturiser I actually look forward to applying! It’s a winter staple for sure.
