In yesterdays post i had mentioned how i was currently in the process of doing my AS level exams and IGCSE resits.
And with all the stress i decided to pamper my self, last night i logged onto my instagram account and the first thing on my feed was a post about relaxation the quote in the picture said "Looking at beauty in the world, is the first step of purifying the mind." And the first thing that came to my mind was.. let me purify my mind,
So I took myself to my bathroom lit a few candles all from bath and body works (i'll link my favorites at the bottom) and ran a bath, whilst the bath was running i took the Garnier pure active 3 in 1 face mask and applied it to my whole face I then washed it off and gently dried my face clear with a warm damp flannel with that I then applied a cream mask which I cant remember the name of when i remember i will link it down below and with that I got into the bath, I soaked up all the warm oily water and took the time to really reconnect with my inner peace (yep i know it sounds so cliche).
Once I was done with my bath I took the time to moisturise my skin with Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E which softens, smoothes and relieves dry skin and also smells amazing! and I applied that to my whole body with that, I then made myself a green tea and read a blog I have recently come across i'm loving her stories about living in the middle east and what she has been through its pretty similar to my mums story but go check her out http://undertheabaya.com/
But I thought I would share my relaxation routine and enlighten you all with something nice to possibly do yourselves, I would advice you take the time to relax! you may not be away on a beach watching the waves crash onto the ocean floor but make that in your on home take that time once or twice a week and you will be feeling like a dove gliding through the sky looking at the beauty in the world
Love you all and I hope you take the time to Purify your minds x
PS. Bath and Body Works candles: http://www.bathandbodyworks.com just go to the home and candles category and everything there (my personal favorite has to be Island waters) but it all depends on the person x
