A Few Sunday Essentials

Non-beauty favourites

| A Few Non-Beauty Favourites! |

Self-care Sunday is my favourite day of the week and I like to spend most of the day doing mindful activities that help me relax and unwind before the new week starts. Although, as this post goes live I'll be painting our new house so I'm not sure how mindful or relaxing that is, haha! Anyway, for today's post, I wanted to share a few of my essentials for my relaxing self-care Sunday. 

1)Sweet Scents: My little heart can't contain its excitement for Autumn but I want to resist the urge to start lighting Autumnal candles until September. To embrace the last couple of weeks of Summer I'll be continuing to light a Summery scent. My Bath & Body Works Market Peach candle is the perfect choice, as the sweet peachy aroma reminds me of my childhood Summer's when I would freeze peach flavoured yoghurts to make peach ice cream.

2) Relaxing Yoga: Sunday is the day of relaxation and what's more relaxing than yoga and meditation? This is usually the time when I like to reflect back on the previous week and I like to take a moment to think of the things I'm grateful for that week. I find this sets me up for the week ahead and I also get a good workout for certain areas of the body at the same time. I highly recommend yoga! It's great for a strong core, arms, etc but it's also cleansing for the internal organs as well as the mind too. 

3) A Heavenly Mask: I received a Space Mask* recently which helped soothe me into a state of relaxation. It's the perfect product for self-care evenings as the self-heating eye mask warms up and instantly put me into a relaxed sleepy state of mind. I felt so serene and it was great to use after a long, busy day!

4) Sweet Sounds: Music is an everyday essential for me and I usually listen to rock music which isn't typically associated with relaxation. The Black Keys, The White Stripes, and The Smashing Pumpkins are just some of my favourite bands to listen to but on Sunday I tend to listen to easy listening music like Ben Howard and James Vincent McMorrow. But recently I've been listening to Perry Como and Chuck Berry's non-Christmas songs as their voices remind me of the festive period which instantly puts me into a cosy mood. 

What are your Sunday essentials?

Love,
