A Peaceful Saturday!

I think that there's nothing better than a relaxing Saturday night! 
After you've worked hard all week, it's lovely to just run a bath, cleanse your skin free of makeup, unwind with a good book/ TV show and indulge in some of your favorite food.

I've found that the things needed for a pamper night are usually already scattered around the house- so there's no need to go out and spend money on a little bit of luxury : )

First of all, I like to cleanse my skin with my favorite cleanser- coconut oil. I have been loving this recently as it's all natural and helps my dry skin to feel smooth and hydrated. I use it the same way I would use a hot cloth cleanser- apply to a wet face, massage it in and wipe off with a hot, soft flannel.

I then remove all my nail polish (or the remains of it) because it's almost always chipped and tatty by Saturday and quickly file my nails so they're all smooth.

I then shampoo my hair and apply a hair treatment. I like anything from the 'aussie' range, my current favorite is the '3 minute miracle beach mate' I leave this on for 10 minutes (rebel) then rinse it off with cold water to make my hair oh-so-shiny :D

The next step is to run a lovely hot bath, I added my 'marshmallow hearts' bubble bath which I reviewed here it smells divine and makes the bath water silky smooth.

Once I'm all chilled out, I like to put on my onesie- I got it from next about a year ago and it is super soft and comfy. I also think that fluffy socks are a must-have.

I like to have lots of candles around and recently, my favorite has been the flamingo candle in 'pink lemonade' it smells delicious! I also love the bright colour of pink!

I then search pinterest for nail art ideas, find lots of cute designs and then decide on taking the easy option and applying a few coats of my favorite nail polish- Barry M Nail Paint in the shade 'Aqua Glitter' it's a super pretty teal colour and glides on the nail like a dream.

Finally, I collect all my favourite food together, put something good on TV and settle down with some galaxy chocolate :P 

What's your idea of a perfect Saturday?


  1. Pampering time is the best - it always makes you feel so much better.

    I've been wanting to coconut oil for ages now, especially as I have dry skin. After reading this I think I'll definitely have to give it a go.
