I bloody love winding down, but that’s the sort of crazy lifestyle I lead in the winter. After a busy day out and about, my first priority is to take my bra off. Sorry if that’s TMI, but if you’re a bra-wearing human, I think you’ll get what I mean. On this occasion; I’m going to run a bath. Baths in winter are my favourite. I realise you would assume my bra would have to come off for this anyway, and you’re right, but I’ve probably pottered about for a good hour pre-bath. Right, now you’ve read that riveting bit of information; I usually take my make up off in a hot bath with a balm or face wash.
I’ll then pop a face mask on, because I hate washing those off over the sink when I’m in clothes; therefore, I save them for bath time. I do use my phone in the bath; I told you I was crazy. My phone has bunny ears which are super easy to grip, and I’ve never dropped it yet (touch wood). I’ll also use a body wash, then rinse my face mask off, before grabbing a towel from the radiator (mmmm…toasty).
After I’m dry, it’s time to moisturise from head to toe. My varying thyroxine levels mean that I often get quite dry skin, so I do get through a shit load of body lotions, creams, and potions. I will literally grab one of the many in my drawer, and on this occasion; it was another Glossier Body Hero.
Next, I’ll put freshly washed soft things on, aka nightwear. Yes, I do have bunny ears on my dressing gown.
A face serum or oil, and a lip balm, is next on the list; I’m a skincare addict, so it varies week to week in regards to what I use.
I’m usually peckish by now. So I’ll take myself into the kitchen to find something to eat and drink in front of the T.V. As it’s Christmas; I picked a box of chocolates from The Chocolate Quarter (a lovely independent chocolate shop in the Jewellery Quarter) and decided to make a Snowball (a 60s cocktail that tastes of a 60s Christmas; divine).
Now, it’s time to find something festive to watch. I went with A Christmas Horror Story earlier. I do not recommend. Thank god for Netflix and the Holiday Favorites category.
Peace, love, and a drop of brandy, Fay x
