Happy Weekend | Evening Pamper Essentials


Happy weekend everyone! This Friday is slightly different than the usual Flower Friday but I figured it was the perfect time to talk about my favorite way to relax and unwind after a long week. There is nothing I love more than having a good old "pamper session" to help de-stress after a particularly long week.  

I start by removing all of my makeup using the No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser and really giving my face a good wash. Next I apply my new favorite which is the Origins Active Charcoal Mask. While the mask is drying I run a bath and always add bubbles of some sort. A few years ago my friend gave me this Scottish Fine Soaps one to try, and I loved it so this one is always a staple in my bathroom. 

I love turning off my phone while having a night like this and instead of surfing Instagram, I'll grab a good book or a couple of magazines. I'm totally one of those people who can stay in the bath for ages with a good book! (A glass of wine doesn't hurt either!) Once out of the bath a load up on the moisturizer (can you tell how much I love my Clinique one, it's almost gone!) and finish off my face with a good moisturizing lip balm. This one from Pixi is a current favorite, the formula is amazing.

My last step is always nails. Nothing beats a good manicure. I find that painting my nails is such a relaxing and calming thing to do. A great neutral is definitely Essie Polish's "Ballet Slippers."

When I am at home one of my favorite things to do is light candles (especially on relaxing and pampering nights like this). For summertime, candles such as Tommy Bahama's Seaswell candle & their signature Island Blend Candle are great beachy, fresh scents.

Along with the fact that it is Friday and that's enough reason to celebrate relaxing; I also wanted to share with you all a little more about "National Relaxation Day" (which is August 15th) and the Tommy Bahama "Summer of Go" Sweepstakes. The sweepstakes includes some amazing weekly giveaways (I'm talkin' flights, hotel rooms, gift cards, and more!) and a grand prize giveaway (a Hawaiian vacation for four - need I say more?) Head over to the sweepstakes homepage for all of the details and information on how to enter. 

ps: As an awesome extra, Uber is giving every new rider who enters the sweepstakes $25 off their first Uber ride. Simply enter HERE to get your code!



*Thank you kindly to Tommy Bahama for sponsoring this post, and reminding me to take a little time out to relax.
