It’s easy around the holidays to let ourselves get rundown and utterly drained of energy. Obviously, it’s because we are pulled in a million different directions come December. We still need to keep up with work, and mandatory work social obligations (i.e. Christmas dos); there’s the drive to be festive, to decorate, put up a tree, go iceskating; there’s the time it takes to get all your Christmas shopping down; and most importantly there’s the extreme want to just spend quality time with your family and friends. Phew!
For me, the best way to relax is during a good soak in the tub, with a riveting book.
Lush Bath Bomb – They are just the best. I’m super guilty of throwing one in the water for a few minutes, then taking it out, drying it off and then wrapping it up to use again later. The fizzy and exfoliating ones are my favourites.
Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel – Lush only has this gel around the festive season and it just smells amaze. Stock up on it in December and give it out as gifts during the rest of the year and you’ll definitely be everyone’s favourite friend!
Bath tub caddy – I don’t actually own one, but I’d love to treat myself. This one has a space for your book, a glass of wine and a candle. Basically it’s perfect. I was such a creepy nerd that when I was around 10 or so, I’d get so wrapped up in books that I wouldn’t stop reading them, even if I needed to take a shower. That’s probably why my childhood copy of “Ella Enchanted” ended up disintegrating.
Fluffy towels – I am a freak and I spend time researching the best fluffy towels for reasonable amounts of money. (Trust me, apparently there are some high end towels that feel like wrapping yourself in a cloud but I don’t think I could ever spend around £100 for a towel. Nope.)
Cath Kidston PJs and Robe – Cath Kidston PJs are the BEST. I consider myself somewhat a connoisseur of PJs and these are my absolute favourites. I have them on multiple prints and I am always open to owning another pair. I call them my “clouds” just because they are so comfy when you put them on. That’s probably why I’d love to own a matching robe as well!
