February has been a strange month for me. A month where I need to take a step back and look after myself. A month where self care needs to increase. Today I’m sharing my ideas for pamper nights with you all. I’m also holding another giveaway which you can read about at the end.

Why self care and pamper nights are important

You know those months where everything just seems so stressful? And where one thing after another seems to happen? At the moment we have a family member in hospital, Ellie has been really poorly, issues with other family members and work has been crazy. So crazy I had to cancel annual leave and go in.

When you are being pulled in every direction like this it is so important to take a step back. It’s impossible to look after everyone else if you’re not on top form yourself.

What my ultimate pamper nights look like

Everyone has a different idea of what pamper nights look like. For some it’s a night out with friends and for others it’s good food and a glass or even bottle of something. My pamper nights are all about total relaxation, nourishing my body and emptying my mind. Depending on the time I have I can have an entire night using all of my ideas, or just a much needed quiet half hour.

One thing that always features heavily in any kind of relaxation is tea. Mugs and mugs of tea. A hot cup of tea is a pampering night idea that you can bring in when you’re short of time. I love sitting in the quiet, no TV or music, sipping a hot drink. I find it quite calming just being quiet and alone with my thoughts.

Can you have pamper nights with out a bath featuring? I certainly don’t think so! A soak in a nice hot, bubbly bath with a favourite bath bomb is the ultimate way to unwind.

If I am having pamper nights I always make sure I use a good body scrub to invigorate my skin. Then a rich moisturiser afterwards to really nourish it.

After relaxing in the bath and giving my skin a treat my pampering nights move on to calming my mind. For me that means snuggling up under my faux fur blanket and binge watching Netflix or reading.

I often find it so hard to just sit and do nothing and really have to work at making myself do this more often!

My final idea for pamper nights is to dim the lights and light your favourite candle or wax melts. I have a wax melt obsession so always make sure I have some more relaxing scents in.

A giveaway to have your own pamper nights

As I said above I have a giveaway for you to have your own pamper nights at home. If you are a regular reader you will already know I love smaller, indie brands. So I am making giveaways a more regular thing here and sharing and supporting the brands I love. Some might be brands I have worked with and some just brands I buy from regularly.

My first giveaway is a body scrub and balm from Absolutely Blendid who you may remember from my review here. The healing body scrub smells amazing and is a great body scrub without being too harsh for the skin. The balm is so moisturising and doubles up as a great facial cleanser too.
