The past couple of months have been pretty hectic for me, I had many happy and sad days, it was just a bit too emotional and busy. And I realised that I haven’t had “me” time for months! So, now that 2016 is here and we all need a fresh start, I decided to give myself a relaxing day. Nothing too fancy or special, just spending some time doing what I love.
It’s pretty cold in Norway at the moment and I’m basically living in slippers, I love these cosy slipper boots from Va Vite that my boyfriend got for me last month. They’re soft and cute and they keep my feet warm.
I love tea and this is just a tiny part of our tea collection. Herbal tea is something that I can’t go a day without in the winter and I’m actually boiling the kettle right now to make myself a nice cup of tea.
This will be a make-up free day for me, I even removed my nail polish and I’m going to enjoy my Sephora Green Tea Eye Mask, then apply a little bit of L’Occitane x Pierre Hermé Paris Pamplemousse Rhubarbe Lip Balm and nourish my hands with Burt’s Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream. Later, after I remove the eye pads, I’m just going to give my skin a treat by spraying Maya Water Facial Mist with Organic White Tea* which is very soothing and moisturising and will follow with Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil to lock the mist. This combination hydrates the skin really well and makes it feel incredibly soft.
I’m very happy that friends gifted books to me around the holidays, as I love reading and I’m currently starting Tove Jansson‘s Tales From Moominvalley and Amy Lawrence‘s Invincible which was part of my Arsenal membership box (I’m a Gooner for those of you who didn’t know).
It’s also a great day to relive the most amazing summer experience I’ve had in 2015 (you can see a few pictures here)! I’m going to watch Tiziano Ferro Lo Stadio Tour 2015 DVD and just wish I could turn back the time and have that June night again for myself…well, and for 60 000 more around me. I ended last year with this concert and I definitely have to start 2016 with it, as well.
And…it wouldn’t be “me” time without chocolate, right? Hope you’re having a great weekend!
