Well hello there again. Today I have a post which has been waiting to be made up for so long, and it’s finally here! One day I had a random idea to do a sort of Girls Night In post, where I give you ideas of things to do, or to read etc… but it’s ended being more of a ‘favourites’ post in a slightly different style, but I like it! I’m going to show you some of my fave brands, products etc all in one awesome ‘Summer Night In’ post! I hope it inspires you to just sit back, relax and have a selfish night all to yourself…
TO LISTEN: FLORAL KNOCKOUT HEADPHONES (SKULLCANDY WOMEN’S COLLECTION)* // TO PLAY: LONDON GRAMMAR – IF YOU WAIT
One of the best ways to tune out, is to tune in to your favourite music. I’ve been absolutely obsessed with London Grammar‘s latest album ‘If You Wait‘. It’s beautiful, powerful and deep all in one… and it sounds even better when I use my new Skullcandy Knockouts. They are honestly, GORGEOUS! I didn’t think I would like the tan leather, but I was so so wrong about it! I adore them so very much! The first time I saw a pair of Skullcandy headphones was on the bus to school when I was around 6, and have always admired them, so to finally own my very own pair, which are utterly gorgeous, makes me sooo happy! I love the little touches, from the floral case to the embossed ‘Land On Your Feet’ on the headband. Love, love love!
Then of course we need to be looking fine and dandy, and that means getting into my favourite piece of attire… PJs! I absolutely love this combo! Both are 2nd hand actually, but they are still so comfortable and look as good as new! Super duper cute, heh? I love the sparkles too… they make the top that little bit more fun and enjoyable to wear!
TO APPLY: CLARIN’S LOTUS FACE OIL (CLICK FRAGRANCE)* // BURT’S BEE’S DAILY INDULGENCE COLLECTION* // MADEMOISELLE WASH BAG (CATSEYE LONDON)*
I don’t think a nice relaxing evening would be complete without a bit of beauty, so of course it had to be included! Catseye London just released a new range of wash bags, and I must say that I am impressed! The size is perfect for fitting everything you need in, it’s wipe cleanable and it even has a pocket inside… perfect for such products as my Clarin’s Lotus Face Oil! I have been using this in my skincare ‘routine’ (which consists of three products mind you…) and I have to say it’s been working a treat! Who knew an oil could help oily skin?! As a relaxing night should be about indulgence, the Burt’s Bee’s set I have is perfect! I’ve used all 3 of the body products and it feels like you are in a spa. SO relaxing!
TO DO: STAEDTLER FINE LINER & FIBRE TIP PENS* // FASHION EXCERSIZE BOOK*
For Christmas about four years ago I got this awesome colouring book, and I never really got into it that much… I sort of rushed it a bit and it ended up not being the best it could have been, so when a similar version became mine I was delighted! It might seem weird to like a colouring book, but I promise you it is more than that! I see it as more of a source of inspiration and something to do to pass the time. Plus, this one doesn’t seem to let ink seep through which is a bonus. Add on top of that some gorgeous pens (perfect for designing!), I’m pretty happy! Listening to music whilst doing something like this really does get your creative juices flowing, I even did a doodle on the ‘Tyson Triplus‘ Tumblr blog, see it here!
When you want to zone out completely, or fall asleep as I like to call it, then a good book always does the trick, and Picture Perfect is definitely a good book! It’s witty, the characters are great, it makes you feel sad and happy all in one. A really really nice read and I can’t wait for the fourth book to be released! It’s also very relatable to me, especially Harriet’s character, I couldn’t really say a bad word about it! Highly recommend giving the whole series a read to any of you fellow youngsters/teens 🙂 I also highly recommend Miss Jojangles to anybody and anyone. Jojo has been the nicest of people on the interwebs recently and has really made me feel proud of my little blog. Just like Geek Girl, her blog is whitty and happy. Jojo makes knitting, tambourine playing and aubergines look cool, what more could you want?!
