As Christmas day is exactly only two sleeps away and one full day away, it’s a time when everyone starts to really get into the Christmas spirit and get ready for the big day. One of the big elements about Christmas is family and spending time with all the people you love the most, however that doesn’t leave much time for yourself over the festive period. Therefore, a few days before or even on Christmas Eve, I love to have a good old pampering session and enjoy some truly needed ‘me’ time. I’m a true bath addict and love spend a few hours running a bath, adding a LUSH bath bomb and catching up with some of favourite youtubers. So, I thought I would share with you all my festive pampering essentials, to inspire your Christmas ‘me’ time.
When it comes to pampering myself, rule number one has to be to run a nice, hot bubble bath; adding any form of gorgeous smelling bath bomb into the water. I love the way bath bombs add a bit of mature fun to your pamper time, and also make your body feel absolutely amazing afterwards. Some of my favourite LUSH bath bombs have to be cinders and golden wonder, however the one in the picture above was a gift from a family member, and it not only looks gorgeous but smells amazing too. I can’t wait to try it when I have a little pamper evening tonight. Secondly, I have to remove all my makeup and give my skin a really good cleanse and clean, then I will pop a face mask on ready to relax in the bath. My favourite masks to use are the 7th heaven ones, which are just a one use sachet filled with a lovely gift for your face. I usually go for ones which are super nourishing and give my skin a deep cleanse.
Whilst I’m relaxing in the bath, I will mane of a head of hair using the quenched sea mineral moisture shampoo and conditioner from OGX. I love how they make my hair feel so nourished, fresh and make it smell lovely. All of their hair products do amazing things for your hair and I would truly recommend them if you’re looking for a new hair care range to use. Then, if I have one available, I will put a hair mask of some description into my hair, in order to really help the build up of product that I get on my scalp and to make my hair feel great. Throughout the whole bath, I love to have my favourite Christmas candle burning away, which is usually a quite spicy and cinnamon scent, as well as catching up on some of favourite youtubers on my ipad, such as The Michalaks, Patricia Bright, Zoella, and Lydia Elise Millen.
Finally, as a head out of the bath and say goodbye to my 30/40 minutes of pure me time, I will put on some of favourite festive pyjama’s, the pair pictured above where from New Look around 3 years ago and are the most festive pair that I own. To top off the pamper time I will choose a few nail varnishes from my collection, that I like the look off and paint my nails. These colours pictured above are all from my Ciate advent calendar and are all gorgeous shades which I love for this Christmas time.
