After all the
excitement illness and wisdom tooth pain of Christmas and New Year, I’d finally stopped feeling like death and started to be able to eat again – just in time for going back to work on Monday.
Thanks to my body’s impeccable timing, I thought I may as well cut my losses and make the most of my final weekend before heading back to the office.
The boyf. was out having a night of Call of Duty and rum-drinking, so it was only right that I use the time to myself wisely and go for full-on girly-ness…
Starting with a beautiful purple bubble bath courtesy of a Lush bubble bar called The Comforter, I soaked for a good hour, listened to The Courteeners and lathered my hair to within an inch of its life.
I then did the magical thing of covering myself in body moisturiser, had a tiny Rachel from Friends moment (“Ooooh love to love you baby, ow!”), before putting on my Christmas ‘jamas – yes, they’re a thing – and slid into bed.
Now, because I was alone, there was only one thing for it…
Sit and revel/sob in the delight of The Fault in Our Stars and eat copious amounts of chocolate. Just because, you know.
I also may have swapped my usual two-legged furry friend for a four-legged furry friend in the shape of Denv (sorry boyf.)
I woke up feeling extremely refreshed and ridiculously pampered.
So there you have it, my girly night in.
– love Stef x
