essie nail polish


Each one of us tend to stress out on a daily basis. However, we know for a fact that stress causes acne on face, sleepless nights. Let’s not forget that it makes us gain weight much easier. Luckily, a pamper evening is here to help.

What is a pamper evening?

It’s the night ( mostly a Sunday night) where you treat yourself a bath alongside scent candles and foam and afterwards- or beforehand-  you just do the skincare stuff for yourself and change into cute pajamas and go to bed early to get a full night’s rest.

Step 1: Change into comfy clothes and wipe out your make-up

  • I personally use Clinique: take the day off makeup remover for lids, lashes & lips which you can get for $30 

Step 2: Apply a face mask

  • I either make a homemade mask or use Ren: Clarimatte Invisible Pores Detox Mask

Step 3: Prepare your bath

  1. Put your clothes on the radiator to feel warm afterwards.
  2. Adjust  water’s temperature to about 28ºC
  3. Let the water pour into the tub until mid-height
  4. While the water is pouring, pour your favorite bath foam into the tub(I personally use bath and body works : Stress relief with eucalyptus tea and I love it. It leaves my skin really soft and moisturised. And it indeed makes me relieve.)
  5. Light a few candles (I either use Lavender vanilla or sweater weather by Bath and Body Works)
  6. Put a glass of cold water (or any other beverage that you can choose)  to drink right next to your tub
  7. Get into the bath apply a hair mask ( I use toni and guy reconstruction hair mask and I love it. It really nourishes my hair and leaves it with feeling like silk.)
  8. Enjoy your bath while reading a book alongside relaxing music
  9. At the end of the bath rinse your hair and carefully put out each candle to make sure they will not cause fire.

Step 4: Comb your hair and blow- dry it.

Step 5: Prepare yourself a cup of tea.

Step 6: Manicure 

Fix your nails and apply your nail polish

  • During winter I usually prefer either french manicure or darker colors 
  • I use Essie Allure for my french manicure base and nails inc. chelsea bridge for base and top coat and “sole mate” is a dark red which look great on your nails in Fall.

Step 7: Do whatever you like or go to sleep.

As you can see, this is a very simple way of treating yourself. Every girl needs time to herself every once in a while and doing this once in a week/2 weeks helps A LOT. Tell me if you liked this post and what would you add or change in this routine?
