Sundays are the perfect time to unwind with a cup of tea, (or a glass of wine) have a good ol’ pamper and prepare for the week ahead.
My Sunday morning usually starts with the biggest lie in, usually until around half 10/11 ish, although sometimes it can be longer (no joke – Matt and I once slept in until 3.30pm, oops). Once we’ve awoken from the most heavenly sleep, we head downstairs for a delicious brunch consisting of bacon, eggs and tea, all served with an episode or two of F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
As Sundays are purely designed to be as lazy as possible, I don’t usually bother to change out of my pyjamas, although I do *occasionally* make the effort to wash my face…
I like to try and do as much blog work on the weekend as possible, this includes everything from brainstorming ideas, taking photos, writing and scheduling posts and taking part in Twitter chats. I love spending the day writing posts on Sundays as there’s no pressure and it’s lovely to just spend an afternoon relaxing in my pyjamas and producing content that I love. I also enjoy watching the odd YouTube video or show on Netflix while I’m busy working as it’s the ultimate way to just chill out.
As the evening rolls around, we’re always greeted with a Sunday dinner by Matt’s lovely mum and it usually consists of the biggest Yorkshire pudding you’ll ever see! We often watch another episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S while we’re eating as well.
After succumbing to a pretty heavy food coma, the rest of the evening is pretty much a write-off so I’ll usually spend the next few hours pampering myself. First up is a long, relaxing bath accompanied by an episode of Gossip Girl and my favourite Lush bath bomb. I also love using a number of different luxurious products to make sure my skin is as silky smooth as possible.
I always shave my legs as part of my pamper routine to ensure that my skin is as fresh and clean as possible, and then I’ll head in with a body scrub. My go-to body scrub at the moment is to use Sanctuary Spa’s White Lily & Damask Rose body scrub. It smells absolutely heavenly and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft. I’m pretty sure Matt also uses it when he thinks I don’t notice…
The moisturiser I’m loving at the moment is the Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Lotion from Vaseline. It leaves a gorgeous scent all over my body and makes my skin feel so luscious and smooth. It’s the perfect after-bath treat.
Sunday is always ‘fresh bedding night’ in our house so after my bath I’ll usually change the sheets to ensure that everything’s all fresh and lovely come bedtime.
Matt and I usually watch a few episodes of Orange is the new Black and then we head to bed, and sleep in total bliss thanks to clean sheets, freshly shaven legs and moisturised skin.
