Detox

Some days it is nice to just have a day indoors by yourself. I call them 'Pyjama Days' where I don't get dressed up, don't wear any make-up but relax and do all of things I like to do to re-charge my batteries. A detox day if you like. Here are some of my must-haves...

A blanket and something warm for my feet are top of the agenda - these cosy slippers are from BunnySlippers, they have a range of other cute little animals as well as these Bunnies

As most of the day is spent lounging and napping on my bed, plenty of cushions and pillows are needed

It is important to look after the inside of one's body as well as the outer and replenish those vitamins, so a platter of fruit is essential - I chose a selection of watermelon, strawberries, raspberries and grapes

I like to try out new beauty products too. Although a loyal Eve Lom fan for many years now, I decided to try a cheaper alternative, Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish

Reading material - for mind, body, spirit and with a little style and inspiration thrown in for good measure

My entire music collection at hand for an array of musical genres, mostly calming of course, on this day of relaxation

As the day draws to a close, I like to switch on these flower fairy lights above my bed for some dim light

And finally, some great girly films to choose from, to snuggle and wind down even more for the day

You sure know how to have a great detox day!

I love those days, but I get so little of it. I'm so used to being on the run that I rarely get those stay at home days. Let me tell you they can be so relaxing. :)

Cute slippers! and I love the colors of your bedding!

oooh this bunny slippers are as sweet as candy. And by the way I also had had recently some detox days - i love them and think everybody should plan more often such days in his monthly routine.

I love to have pyjama days, too! I don't often actually wear pjs, but slip into comfy loungewear (like leggings and a loose top, or Juicy sweats that really shouldn't be seen outside the house!)

My pyjama days consist of:
- catching up with my favorite tv shows
- lots of tea (preferably peppermint) and sometimes hot chocolate
- doing my nails, putting on a face mask, and other girly things
- sometimes inviting a friend over to huddle on the sofa in a blanket and watch a movie

Such detox days consists of small simple things really. I could do those everyday alongside studying but it's different to just laze around after days of hard work.
