Today is Galentine's Day - Leslie's Knope's celebratory day for women to get together and celebrate. To honour of this made-up holiday I'm gathering the troops and celebrating the old fashioned way, with lots of delicious food... Once the food coma has well and truly hit I plan to retire to my bedroom and engage in the mother of all relaxing pamper sessions. [Pro tip: this pamper would also set you up nicely if you have Valentine's Day plans tomorrow; two birds, one stone!]
I'm going to kick things off by having a long, hot shower. Second only to baths (sadly I don't have one in my current home), showers are my favourite beauty pastime! They might be seem basic but all you need are a couple of luxury beauty goodies to transform them into something quite extraordinary. First, I'm going to reach for Lush's The Rough with the Smooth Body Scrub (£5.95) which is quite simply the best body scrub that I've ever tried from Lush. Once I'm pleasntly buffed and smooth that's when I like to throw a bit of haircare into the mix. I'll shampoo my hair as usual (probably using Lush's Lullaby Shampoo Bar (£5.75) as the lavendar scent is really dreamy) and then I'll reach for Noah's Restructuring Cream with Yoghurt*. I simply adore this conditioner, it leaves my hair feeling incredible (definitely on par with the results that I get from ESPA's Pink Hair and Scalp Mud* (£32.00)) but without the faff of having to use a hair mask.
The last box left to tick on my pamper list is always a little bit of mani-pampering. Enter L'Occitane's Almond Hand Cream (£8.00), quite possibly my favourite hand cream. Although it doesn't quite leave my hands feeling as good as L'Occitane's classic Shea Butter Hand Cream, I just can't get over how great L'Occitane's Almond Range smells. It's the perfect way to finish off a thoroughly indulgent beauty pamper!
So that's what I've got planned for today -
do you have any Galentine's Day plans?
