Do you know what I love most about Sunday’s? (No, but I’m sure you’re going to tell us in an exceedingly long, rambley way…) It’s that on a good, work free day… the hardest decision that I have to make is whether to have a long liein and a lazy pyjama/boxset/takeaway/anything sloth related day; or a pampering luxurious morning, followed by an extremely low key makeup look – or none at all, covering the eye bags and with the hugest sunglasses you can get your hands – a casual, comfortable outfit and going for a wander around London.
Oh, and food. If a hell of a lot of food isn’t involved in your Sunday then girlfriend, you are not doing Sunday right.
In all honesty, as much as I desperately need to catch up on some zzz’s, I am positively awful at “lay around in bed all day” days, so the latter option always wins in the end. So I thought I would do a “follow me around on my pampering/relaxing/chilled sunday” kind of post (Christ, what a catchy name) and I really hope you enjoy it.
And if you don’t? Maybe you could just pretend you did and humour me anyway 😉
Starting with the lazy morning wake up. I find it impossibly hard to not wake up relatively early on a Sunday and not “make the most of the day” – much to my fiances delight – so a cup of tea/coffee/all the caffeine, some breakfast (Udi’s Gluten free toast with smoked salmon and eggs really hit the spot in this instance), a good book (I’m currently reading Fleur’s The Glam Guide) and a Sunday morning Pinterest situation is the first thing on the agenda.
Sufficiently fed and caffeinated, it’s time for an indulgent bath that you would never have time for in the week. And if you do, I am endlessly jealous
bitch 😉 For my Sunday bath, I have been using the cutest, most sophisticated bath product I think I have ever seen – The Body Shop’s Fuji Green tea bath salts and infuser*.
The next item on my pamper to-do list is something that I always skip in the week
because I’m a lazy cow and can’t be arsed – naughty Elle – and that’s moisturising my body. It’s just the waiting around for the lotions to sink and absorb that just gives me that *Ain’t nobody got time for that [insert “speak to the face” emoji here]* feels. Which is why I am so unbelievably happy that I have discovered the perfect product to diminish those woes…
Enter The Body Shop’s Fuji Green Tea body sorbet. I’ve been intrigued by the body sorbets ever since they started popping up around the blogging community and I am so pleased I finally got the chance to test them out. They have, quite possibly the strangest texture for a body product that I’ve ever experienced. They are an extremely light, whipped, soufflé type product that at first, you would think is going to crumble all over your skin. But they don’t. At all! They really just absorb so quickly whilst adding a hefty amount of nourishment and making your skin smell great. The perfect summer product in my opinion.
I also tried out The Body Shop’s new Matte Kajal and so far… I really, really like it. The matte finish is perfect for a smokey eye and the formula lasts amazingly well in the waterline. So far, so good!
Comfortable clothing time. Move all of the skinnies, leather trousers, tight clothing out of the way… the boyfriend jeans are the only appropriate Sunday attire; the baggier, the more comfortable, the better.
