A Sunday Pamper Routine

As soon as Autumn and Winter roll around I automatically feel inclined to have a pamper session. It just feels so appropriate. I mean, what girl doesn't love an excuse to laze around in bed and consume an entire tub of Ben and Jerry's? Seeing as it's the weekend, I thought it was the perfect time to share 5 things I like to do when I want to take some time out and just chill.
Set The Mood | The first thing I always do when I'm having a bit of a pamper is light a candle. It's so simple but they make such a difference to my mood and having my favourite scent in the background always makes me feel nice and cosy. I have a Cranberry Marmalade Mini from Chelsea Candle on my desk and I can't wait to start burning it. It literally smells like Christmas. 

Double Cleanse | On the weekends I like to take advantage of the extra time and do a thorough double cleanse. My skin's been a bit temperamental recently so I've switched back to my trusty Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. I've also started using the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask again which leaves my skin feeling really soft and hydrated. 

Scrub A Dub Dub | My body gets extremely dry and because I have Keratosis Pilaris it looks even worse so once a week I like to do a proper good scrub. At the moment I'm using one from Happy Place Cosmetics and I love it. It gets rid of all the dry skin but still moisturises at the same time. They don't do this particular scent anymore but they've just released a ton of new ones which all sound amazing.

Vamp Up | Pamper evenings are probably the only time I actually bother to paint my nails. Normally I opt for nudes or pinks but I'm switching it up for Autumn and going for Barry M's Raspberry which is a gorgeous deep wine shade. 

Do Something You Enjoy | To finish off my routine I like to watch a film but of course, you can do whatever it is that helps you unwind. Chick flicks are my weakness and they have been since I was little. Whether it's Mean Girls, Legally Blonde or There's Something About Mary, you name it, I love em' all. I recently bought Bridget Jones's Baby on DVD and it was probably my best decision ever. Ok, maybe not ever, but I do think it's brilliant and definitely worth watching if you haven't already. 


So that's my Sunday sorted. What are you getting up today?
