How to Relax

I'm not going to lie but the last few weeks I've been feeling really down. My job seems to be going from bad to worse. Nothing I do seems to make it better. My personal relationships seem to be falling apart. Since starting my blog I find that this is away I can escape it all. After a tough day at work. (Yes yesterday was one) I like to come home and relax. 

First of all I like to start by running a bath. I like my baths steaming hot and after a day in a freezing cold office these warm me up. 

While I am in the bath I like to put some music on. Last night's choice was The Script as mine came through the post yesterday. I also like to read a magazine. This seems to be my only time to ever actual read these days. So it was nice to just chill out. 

What bubble bath I use in the bath really depends on what mood I'm in. For chilling out I like to use Nspa Jojoba and white vanilla foaming bath milk. I picked this up a few weeks ago in Asda. This smells lovely and leaves a lovely scent on your skin. I also like to apply a face mask. Last night I used Elemis herbal lavender repair mask. It's a clay mask it doesn't really have the nicest smell but it does leave my skin really soft. 

Once I've turned into a mermaid. (This is the term my Mum used to use once I had gone wrinklely in the bath) I like to put my PJs get wrapped in my dressing gown and make myself a hot chocolate. This sums up my perfect evening in. 

Now I feel all relaxed I head to bed for an early night. How do you like to relax? 


  1. Awww that sounds amazing!! I am always jealous when people talk about baths because i dont like having them due to my eczema. that hot chocolate looks scrummy!! i find that blogging is my way too to escape the real world! lol sometimes i just cant be bothered wih all the rubbish going on here that i just turn on the blogosphere and get reading! its great :D i hope things get better for you at work! :)

  2. The plug for my bath is currently broken but I went for a shower with my soap and glory bubble bath the other night that was quite nice but not quite as good as a bath!
