The 'Me Time' TAG

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

When I saw Esteé from Essiebutton and Amelia aka Amelia Liana do this tag on Estée's Youtube channel I just new I had to get involved! I mean I LIVE FOR 'ME TIME'! Especially now in the cold winter months, there is nothing I like more than to spend a cosy evening on my couch in my most snuggly pyjamas. So now that we've established that I was predestined to do this tag, let's get into it:

What do you watch or read during me-time?

I'm a massive bookworm so I'll most likely be sitting there with a book. I'm currently rereading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban because, well, yolo! However I recently finally got Netflix and am slowly working my way through American Horror Story. 

What do you wear during me-time? #nobra

My favourite pyjama bottoms from Primark, a veeery slouchy T-Shirt and my super cosy and warm dressing gown from next. And definitely #nobra ! There's also these super warming slippers from Accessorize that keep my feet nice and toasty. 

What are your me-time beauty products?

I'll have a nice long bubble bath,  preferably the Kneipp 'Kuschelbad' because it's so relaxing and smells super nice! I also really love the tetesept bath salt in 'Wintermärchen' which smells so amazingly chrismassy! While I'm in the bath I like to have a cleansing face mask on and also do a hair mask because that's the only time I have the patience to let that work its magic (ain't nobody got time for that during the working week!). I will also use my Soap & Glory Sugar Rush body scrub.

Current favourite nail polish? 

This is tricky! I'm always torn between Essie's 'Wicked' and Nails Inc's 'Porchester Square'. However currently I'm wearing 'Porchester Square' 

What do you eat/drink during me-time? 

I'll either make myself a cup of the Teapigs Peppermint and Liquorice tea which I adore or I'll have a homemade pumpkin spice latte. You can find out how I make my healthier version of the Starbucks classic here. For food I'll have anything that has chocolate in it!

Current favourite candle?

I'm forever burning vanilla scented candles! However I've been eyeing up some christmassy scents for a while now so I think there will be some new purchases soon.  

Do you ever have outdoor me-time? 

I'm not the most outdoorsy person but I do enjoy going for a nice long walk through the woods just before I'll have my Sunday pamper bath time because there's nothing better than diving into a nice warm bath after a frosty walk!  

Would you ever go see a movie alone? 

I've done it once and even though it didn't feel weird or awkward I still don't think I would do it again. I don't know about you, but for me going to the cinema is more than just seeing a film, it's a social thing, you go with friends and have a good time often combine it with having dinner out together and it's the whole experience that makes it special.  

Favourite online shop? 

Has to be either amazon (for books and the like) or zalando (for clothes and shoes).  

Anything to add? What else do you do during me-time? 

I like to write my to-do lists during me-time! It gives me a sense of calm and control when I write down what needs to be done so that's something I quite enjoy doing! I also like to do some baking (followed by a lot of eating what I was baking.. haha)

So this is what me-time consists of for me! What about you guys? I tag you to do this as well if you fancy, leave me a link to your blogs below so I can check out your answers as well :)
