So, my favourite thing to do to signify the start of summer is to stop, take a breath and appreciate the fact that all the hard work of exams and 9-5 is over and done with.
The perfect way to chill out for me is by going all out girl and having a proper Pamper Evening. You never know, I might go the whole way and even watch Mean Girls or Clueless, i’m just that much of a cliché.
Call it what you want but there isn’t a problem, in my book, that a long soak in the bath and some sweet scented candles can’t think – and most certainly a large pot of tea!
Here are my favourites for a pamper extravaganza – you can also use some of these things for sleepovers or girly nights – possibly just the face masks though…
