A Relaxing Night for One

Some nights, all I want to do is stay in and get that much-needed chill time that we all dream about. We all deserve a night devoted to ourselves to relax and relieve the continuously built-up stress in our lives. I love these nights so much that I decided to dedicate an entire blog post to them!

Keep reading to see how you can have your relaxing night for one.

I mentioned this candle in my last post, Back to School Essentials, but I have to reiterate once again just how obsessed I am with this stress relieving candle from Bath & Body Works. When I use this, the fragrance literally spreads throughout the entire house. Light this at the beginning of the evening and you’ll surely be in a state of relaxation for the rest of the night.

2.) Mask It

Let me tell you…a good face mask can make all the difference. I especially prefer this Mario Badescu Super Collagen Mask. The texture is so smooth in comparison to any other face mask that I’ve tried, and it works wonders. My face feels so refreshed and breakouts subside due to this gentle formula. I would suggest applying this right before you get into the bath (hint to the next step) or before you binge-watch your favorite Netflix show.

Next on the list for a relaxing night is, of course, a bath. I know this little orange sphere doesn’t look like much, but it can do wonders in the tub! This bath bomb is the Yoga Bomb from Lush Cosmetics. If you haven’t tried Lush before, I would highly suggest it. All of their products use natural ingredients and are 100% vegetarian. This little one will have you saying namaste.

4.) Nailed it

Although painting my own nails doesn’t seem to go as smoothly as expected, I have come to realize that it’s still a very calming task. I love picking out a color that is perfect for the season or occasion, and I always feel more put together when my nails are done. Essie Nail Polish is a favorite of mine because of how long it lasts and because of their wide variety of colors to choose from.

5.) A Good Read

The final requirement for a relaxing evening for one is a good book. I know that Netflix is tempting, but I am telling you that there is nothing better than finishing the night by reading a chapter or two in your favorite novel. My all-time favorite book, featured above, is Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah. I won’t give too much away, but in a nutshell it is a heartfelt story of two best friends that grow up together learning life lessons and going through a few bumps in the road. That being said, the next time that you’re making your way to the bookstore, (or Amazon), I would give this one a look! No matter what you decide, choose a book that will make you feel at ease while reading.
