A little Saturday post dedicated to chilling out and unwinding!!!!
After a long day at work I love coming home and just chilling out! Especially during the winter months, when it’s cold and dark I actually look forward to getting home, putting on my PJ’s and doing well …. absolutely nothing!!
I think it’s really important to have unwind time after a full on working day! Some days my evenings are taken up with writing new posts and other days my evenings are my own!!
I don’t know about anyone else but the first thing I HAVE to do when I get home is get out of whatever outfit I have chosen to wear that day and get into something a lot more comfortable! Usually my PJ’s if I’m honest! But I also have a few comfortable skater dresses that I wear if it’s a little to early for PJ’s…… but really, is it ever too early for PJ’s!!??
Next on the list it’s hair up time!! Messy bun or top not I really don’t care, it’s so nice to just throw it up and get it out of my way!!
Dinner is always followed by a long hot shower, because does anything really beat a nice hot shower?! I usually listen to some music whilst showering, I have my iTunes on shuffle and listen to everything from Disney to Meatloaf!! Music is an absolutely great way to unwind and de-stress!
A face mask is a must after a long day- the body shop have a great range and I am loving their Himalayan purifying face mask at the moment.
Most evenings I am usually busy with lifestylelisa, planning new posts and brainstorming! Seriously blogging is a another full time job!! But my cut off point is 9pm where I stop with the blog, make myself a hot chocolate or cup of tea and binge watch Pretty little liars on Netflix!! Pretty little liars is one of my guilty pleasures I can’t believe I didn’t watch it when it first aired because I absolutely LOVE IT!! I am part way through season 5 which means I have another 2 seasons to go!! I cram in as many episodes as I can in an evening as I can’t watch it with Luke because in typical guy fashion he doesn’t like it!! The other thing I like to do (when I can squeeze it in) is read! I’m such a book worn and love books and reading!!!
If I make it into bed before midnight it’s a winner! But usually I get side tracked with Netflix and end up finally crawling into bed at gone midnight!! I’m not too good if I don’t get enough sleep, so I usually come with an approach with caution sign the next day!!
To help me sleep I have my favourite pillow mists, they are super relaxing and I now take them everywhere with me!! I also don’t sleep without my eye mask!! I like feeling relaxed so even if I do go to sleep after midnight I still wake up feeling as fresh as a daisy (most of the time!)
Okay, your turn, how do you guys spend your evenings? What’s the best way to unwind after a long day at work? Leave me a comment below.
Have a great Saturday everyone, whatever your up too
