Life has a way of getting on top of us and I think we’re all guilty of rushing around nonstop and forgetting to give ourselves sufficient “me time”.  I thought I’d share my 5 favourite ways to unwind and hopefully, it’ll encourage us all to take a well deserved break!

Blogging

Even though this has become my job, I absolutely love it!  I find blogging to be an escape and nothing provides me with a better sense of satisfaction then creating content I’m truly proud of which I can share with the world.  Of course, there are downsides but 90% of the time turning to my blog is my favourite way to unwind.

Reading Magazines

This is something I don’t spend enough time doing as I absolutely love it.  These days I tend to get all my fashion, beauty and entertainment news online but the truth is sometimes you can’t beat a magazine. Flicking through the endless pages, seeing all the gorgeous clothes and stunning photography.  It’s impossible not be left inspired.

Face Mask

Sometimes you can’t beat a good ol’ face mask, especially right before bedtime.  It’s the ultimate “at home” pamper session!  I’m going to be doing a full review on these Peter Thomas Roth facemasks very soon, so watch this space!

Tea and Biscuits

As a Brit you can’t beat tea and biscuits, it’s in our blood!  Jadu Tea has to be the most luxurious of them all and there is something delightfully fancy about having loose leaf tea (although they do offer teabags if you prefer the ease of them!).  If you’re going to unwind you may as well do it in style and everything about Jadu feels luxurious!

As for biscuits, you can’t beat Thomas J Fudge’s delicious Florentines.  They have so many different twists on the classic biscuit, it’s hard not to want to eat them all!  Next on my to try list is the white chocolate version.

Organic Aromas

This is a fairly recent discovery.  Organic Aromas specialises in the most amazing Nebulizing Essential Oil Diffusers.  There is a long and scientific explanation as to how Nebulizing Diffusers work and differ from other types of diffusers (which you can read HERE if you’re interested) but just take it from me this smells incredible and it’s totally faff free!  Simply pour in the aromatherapy oil, plug it in, switch it on and you’ll have a heavenly smelling room.

Also, I just love the raindrop design.  I think it’s so elegant and doesn’t look at all out of place sat on a mantlepiece or bookcase.

I never ask anything of you guys but please this weekend or on your next day off take some time to relax and unwind.  You deserve it!
