So yep, today is my birthday! 22 today! Since my boyfriend down in London works Monday to Friday I went to visit him this past weekend – we had a super nice weekend just relaxing and catching up, and now I’m back and spending my actual birthday home alone. This doesn’t bother me though because it means a nice long soak in the bath, lounging about, and catching up on the newest season of BONES! So I thought I’d talk you through my birthday pamper day!
Of course I am a huge lover of a nice hot bubble bath, and today I’m using a LUSH bubble bar I’ve been saving since Halloween – the Sparkly Pumpkin. Dipped in gold glitter with a gorgeous citrusy scent this was just the birthday treat I needed!
Now one way to feel super luxurious is to layer on the moisturisers. For my body I went for the thick and creamy, citrus scented Celebrate lotion, and for my face the amazing(ly expensive) Gorgeous moisturiser.
Now for TV. I am a massive fan of BONES – the crime/drama based around forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, but I haven’t watched an episode since I watched the first of the newest season. Partially because I think I’m still not quite over the trauma of them killing off one of my favourite characters, but today I’m going to push through and make myself watch it again!
Keeping on the theme of TV, my guilty pleasure is bridal shows; ‘Say Yes To The Dress’, ‘Something Borrowed, Something New’, and ‘I Found The Gown’ – basically anything on the channel TLC! Now I’ve also got my mum obsessed with it too and we now have way too many conversations about what wedding dress I’m going to wear (I may or may not have already got one picked out…) – not that I have any plans to get married any time soon!

So yeah! That was my thrilling birthday day summed up, and now I’m going to have Chinese chicken curry for dinner which greatly excites me, and I think I’m about to make a cheeky Beauty Bay order with my 10% discount code – most probably for an eyeshadow palette I’ve been lusting after for a long time! Plans for the week include baking a cake tomorrow, booking in for my colour at the hairdressers, and working a shift waitressing this weekend. Do let me know what you get up to on your pamper days, or what you’re getting up to this week!
