A Cosy Festive Evening Pamper Routine - Blogmas Day 16

Sunday, December 16, 2018

After a hard day at university or battling the horrible weather, winter evenings are the perfect time to cosy up and pamper yourself. I've had quite a few of these nights recently, as I really felt like I needed it after being exhausted from uni and work and everything else going on in my life, and sometimes it's nice to indulge in a bit of me-time. I thought it'd be nice to share what I like to do on a relaxing, chilled out evening, so if you're interested then keep reading!

The first step to any evening routine is to get a shower and freshen up. Ideally, on a cold winter evening, I'd love to get a warm bath and relax for a while, but sadly this isn't possible at university. However, I take the time to give my hair a thorough wash and clean all of my body, as well as shaving and even moisturising my skin if I'm going all-out. It's also at this point that I'll take off my makeup, which instantly feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders, and I'll also take the time to do a face mask and really nourish my skin.

After changing into some pyjamas and cosy socks, it's time to settle down for the evening. I get really cold in winter, especially since my uni room isn't the warmest, and so I'll quite often make myself a hot water bottle to really get a cosy feel. I'll also have a nice cup of tea (whether that's a standard English breakfast tea or peppermint, depending on my mood) and some chocolates since it's Christmas and I want to treat myself!

My evening normally consists of browsing on my laptop, since there's a lot of catching up to do on any blogmas posts and vlogmas videos, which I look forward to every year. There are quite a few that I've become invested in this year but I'll be telling you more about that in a separate post, so you'll have to wait and see. I also really enjoy playing cards of the evening, as it's something a bit different for me and Aiden to do but is really enjoyable (or at least I enjoy it when I win!)

When it's time to wind down for the night, I love putting a Christmas film on and snuggling up under the duvet. With my lights off and fairy lights on, it really does begin to feel magical and festive. Once I've finished doing this, I'll finish my evening by cosying up with a good book to put me to sleep, which at the moment is My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier, which I'm absolutely loving!

And that's my cosy pamper evening routine! As much as I miss warm baths and lighting candles at home, I do still love evenings like this and it's definitely what my body has needed lately. Thank you very much for reading this post and I hope you liked it, and make sure you keep up to date with the rest of my blogmas posts going up over the next week!
