This week has been a quiet one; so quiet, I’d usually be going out my mind with boredom, but knowing how busy next week will be I’ve been enjoying the peace, getting lots of blog posts scheduled and catching up on pinterest. There’s a few things that have been making staying in especially enjoyable this week, that I thought I’d share..

First up is my absolutely beautiful Snowflake Cookie Yankee Candle. I am crazy in love with this thing, so much so I’ve been neglecting using it just so I don’t burn through it too quickly. As well as Pinterest I’ve been catching up with some books I’ve half started, including the Virgin Suicides and this marketing book I started before new years!

I go into full pamper mode when I’ve had a few days in, and these are my current favourite face masks. I’ve recently added the REN Invisible Pores Detox mask to the collection, and so far I can’t really tell a huge amount of difference but I’ve been enjoying using it. Immediately after I always use the Superfacialist Rose Intense Moisture mask which does a great job at keeping my skin looking and feeling hydrated. I’m not too sure how necessary the Weleda Wild Rose Smoothing mask is for me, and it’s for fine lines, but there’s no harm in starting early!
As much as I know I shouldn’t, I cannot resist the Douwe Egberts flavoured coffees. The ultimate favourite is the caramel, but the chocolate, hazelnut and vanilla are all yummy. If it’s a choice between green tea, peppermint tea, or these, I’m ashamed to admit they win everytime, and I end up having about three cups a day. My excuse is that is saves on heating bills.

    Great post, I love having pamper nights in on a weekend, especially when it's so foul outside. Hope you had a great weekend.

    Sometimes when things are so busy, it's nice to be bored for a little bit. I've enjoyed quite a lot of netflix on my weekends haha.
