My night time routine changes quite a bit when the cold months arrive. Once I get in the house on a night and it is already dark there is little chance of me venturing back out or being productive!
I usually get in at around 5pm on a weekday and the first thing I do is go upstairs and put all my things away and then get changed into something comfy and cosy, it’s usually Christmas Pjs! I also put on thick Christmas socks and slippers to be extra cosy.
The next thing I do is go downstairs and make a hot drink because I am always freezing when I get home! Sometimes it’s tea or hot chocolate but at the moment I am loving the Tassimo coffee machine to make Costa caramel lattes and they are amazing. The machine is so easy to use as all you do is fill it with water, put the coffee pod in and then its done! I either use my Emma Bridgewater mug or a Christmassy mug!
I then get some blankets and light some candles and get cosy on the couch to watch TV with George. We have just finished watching Power on Netflix and we both loved it, definitely worth watching if you need a new series to get into! He still tells me it is too early to be watching Christmas films, which I do not agree with at all!! This is also the time I get my laptop and phone to check my emails and social media to catch up with what I’ve missed throughout the day. I also sometimes write some blog posts or come up with ideas at this time. Then it is my job to make tea for us, as if George did then either the house would be burnt down or I’d be dead with food poisoning.
After my tea I go run a bath or get a shower. I normally opt for baths this time of year so I can use all of the LUSH Christmas collection! I light some candles and set Pretty Little Liars (which I am OBSESSED with) up on my laptop to watch in the bath. Tonight I used The Magic Of Christmas reusable bubble bar wand, which I wrote about on Blogmas day 1. It smells insane, creates so many bubbles and makes the water bright orange and glittery. I take my make up off with the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish which is a hot cloth cleanser. I massage the creamy cleanser into my skin which breaks down all the make up. I then wash this off with hot water using the muslin cloth that comes with the cleanser. I have been using this to take my make up off for two years now and I would recommend it to anyone. I also use the Gentle Face Exfoliator by Liz Earle a few times a week to get rid of dead skin sells and give my skin a deep cleanse. I cleanse my skin with the LUSH cleanser, Let The Good Times Roll. This is another product that I have been using for years; I love the smell of it and it leaves my skin so soft.
I then use the Nivea Refreshingly Soft moisturising cream. I really like using this cream on my body as it smells so fresh and clean and my skin is super soft afterwards, also it is really affordable. I always leave a set of fresh pyjamas on the radiator to put on after my bath so they are nice and warm. When I am all nice and clean I get a hot water bottle and cuddle up on the couch with George to watch I’m a Celebrity and eat chocolate.
I then go upstairs and get my bag and clothes ready for the next day. Finally I put the Christmas fairy lights and candles on in my room so its super cosy and watch Netflix or catch up on Youtube videos on my laptop in bed. This is probably my favourite time of night!
