A weekly pamper session is a must. No questions asked. Pamper sessions are a great way to unwind and to let yourself renew and prepare for the busy week ahead. Now there are normal and small pamper sessions where you just chuck on a face mask and your're done, and then there are the proper pamper sessions where you go all out and do the whole routine. This is exactly what I am going to share with you, From products I use to what I choose to snack on. It's all covered in this post.
I first light a candle and then I like to pick and choose all of my products and lay them all out. I usually start off by picking a face mask from my beauty drawer. I keep all kinds of masks, mud masks, peel off masks and lately I have been collecting and loving sheet masks so this time I opted for a Korean brightening sheet mask. I then choose a nail polish. Though it can be hard at times, I opted for a cute bubblegum pink from Essence Cosmetics. Nails painted and face mask on...
I then get comfortable and write in my diary and this is usually accompanied with a huge bag of pick n mix sweeties! I wait for my face mask to do it's thing and wait for my nails to dry so what better way to kill time by jotting down some ideas or writing down what happened during the day.
Once I let my nails dry properly, I then apply my lotions and potions. A good night cream, eye cream and lip balm. I am currently loving the Burt's Bees night cream, Estee Lauder eye cream and my trusty rose nivea lip balm. Both creams work really well together and I wake up with dewy and fresher looking skin. Don't forget a hand cream too! I always keep one on my bedside table. I'm currently loving Soap and Glory's hand food.
Now this will really tie up the pamper session nicely, I received the cutest little parcel from Naomi who owns the Superpeach boutique and they have the cutest and the most unique looking lingerie, ever! I was lovingly sent a pair, the Maria* is a gorgeous black pair of knickers. It's all about the little things, I really loved how she went all out there with the packaging. The knickers were wrapped in light pink tissue paper which was adorned with a white bow and there were some white synthetic rose petals for extra cuteness. The Maria has a floral print that is covered in lovely black frills and is finished off with two satin black bows. If this doesn't scream class then I don't know what does. These are super comfortable and super stretchy, perfect for lounging in! Superpeach also stock a fabulous array of items that would make a perfect gift for someone or for yourself. They have got it all! From cute hair accessories to stationery and keyrings. Each item is beautiful and it's great because everything is in one place.
It's important to slip into something that will make you feel that extra bit special, all I need now are some pink silky pyjamas! I guarantee that if you do this whole routine once a week, you will automatically feel great and be ready to take on any task.
