DIY: A Pamper Night

Today, as I've wanted to write a DIY post for so long, I thought it would be fun to write a post about how I pamper myself in the evening when I'm feeling a bit ill or down or simply wanting an evening full of pamperness. I thought my blogging challenge - that you can read about HERE - would be a great time to write my first DIY post!

      ♡ Run a bath 

Isn't the sound of a running bath lovely? Firstly I run my bath water (not burning hot, and not chilly) and put a Lush product in, because, with me, that's just the rule. In the pamper evening pictured above, I chose Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment bath melt to make the water all mystically pink and inviting (which is seen in the first picture in this post). You may prefer showers, of course (I'm not really a "bath person" but when it comes to Lush I am!), or a sit on the sofa with Zac Efron on the telly (what I would do afterwards/normally!) with a face mask or chocolate or both!

♡ Get pamper-y goodies ready 
I love using little treats on pamper nights. I'll have some skincare products at the ready for during bath time. I always enjoy Soap & Glory's Peaches and Clean as it makes my skin feel so baby-skin-soft. Moisturising cream from The Body Shop is awesome for afterwards and the smell is all linger-y and lovely. Then, I love to use some nail varnish to finish off with! It makes me feel all shiny and brand new (*sings Simply Red*)!                                                                  
 ♡ Grab a book 

For me, I love to have a book to read when I'm in the bath (I am incredibly careful not to ruin it with water, though). I will be having a pamper evening tomorrow night and The Book Thief will be my company.

♡ Make hot choccy 

Once the bath is finished, I make myself a hot chocolate, ready for when I sit down afterwards. Sometimes I have mini marshmallows, whipped cream and chocolate buttons, but a simple hot chocolate does the job!

♡ It's movie night

Lastly, with my jimjams on, my freshly painted nails and soft, nice-smelling skin, I put my feet up with my hot chocolate and watch a film.

Pamper nights are perfect.

This is my first DIY post on the last day of my challenge! It's a bit "rough around the edges" but I'm happy with it and have a few more ideas for other DIY posts! I'm sad my blogging challenge is over but proud that I have kept up with it! What is essential for a pamper night for you?
