Evening Rituals

It’s officially Winter time. The time where it’s okay to stay in bed till 11 am, eat an entire advent calendar in one day and where you can spend a little more time in the evening getting cosy. I love having a nice evening routine to help wind down and pamper, especially in the colder weather. Here are some small ideas to incorporate into your night time.


Bath Who doesn’t love a bath?! I like to make a little bath cocktail with all of my favourite products. I’ve been really enjoying the Bramley Bath Salts  * (£12) which smell so lovely and fill my bathroom with the aroma. For something softening I like my Ren Bath Oil (£30). Shower gel wise, I either use the Dove Shower Oil (£4.99) or my beloved Lush Snow Fairy (£7.95), which smells like Christmas to me as it only comes out this time of year.



Environment I like to take the time to make my room feel really cosy and warming. I really enjoying dropping Lavender Oil (£1.99) in my Air Humidifier (£21.99). I also enjoy lighting a candle, this one is from New Look. I love lighting shit loads of fairy lights, bundling my bed up with loads of blankets and rewatching Rupauls drag race season 6 (for the 100th time). What ways do you relax?

Cosy Drink Whether it’s a glass of Rioja, a mulled wine or a fancy hot chocolate I love a nice drink in the evenings. Here is my fave mulled wine recipe: 1 bottle of red wine ( I like cabernet sauvignon or pinot noir) , a carton of orange juice, cinnamon sticks, all spice (or just use mulled wine sachets), apples, oranges, nutmeg and any other spices you like! Put all in a saucepan and gently heat- DO NOT BOIL.

Skincare I love taking care of my skin so I thought I’d include a routine I’ve been liking recently. I cleanse with the marvellous Rossi Uvema Cleansing Oil* (£14.75) then using my Nip and Fab Glycolic Pads*  (£7.45) to get rid of dead skin. I finish with my Melvita Rosehip Oil* (£21) and I’m ready for bed.

I’d love to hear the ways you relax and I’m always on the lookout for new natural beauty brands <3 Let me know in the comments….

    Great post! I definitely switch up my skincare routine during the winter and definitely have a more cozier lifestyle (warm baths, plush robes, etc.). I like the idea of creating the ideal environment!
