Everyone tells you that your first year of Uni is easier than your a-levels, but that doesn't mean it's without stress. I handed in two essays on Monday and Tuesday so I think I'm definitely in need of a Spa Day, except a more student friendly at home one. After all, I don't have the money to be going and getting facials. So here's my perfect at home spa day, so put on some comfy clothes and here we go!
Just like everyone else in my generation I love music. Now my favourite style of music tends to be sad music, I know, how depressing. After watching the Fault In Our Stars I went home and downloaded the soundtrack because it was my kind of music. Yet, I don't find the music that depressing, instead I find it calming. Perfect for a spa day. Here's a list of some of my current favourites!
Ghost - Halsey
If I Could Fly - One Direction
Just My Soul Responding - Amber Run
Sacrifice - Zella Day
Fire Meet Gasoline - Sia
I ombre-d my hair at the beginning of summer so it definitely needs a lot more care now. For my perfect spa day I put a hair mask on, plait my hair and then leave it in for a few hours whilst I do the rest of my spa day routine. I especially love the Bleach London Reincarnation Mask.
I know some people love to change up their hair colour when they have a spa day, using it to give them a confidence boost. If you're thinking of changing your hair but aren't sure which colour to try then I suggest trying Madison Reed's Hair Colour Quiz it's quick, easy and the colour it matched me with, Lucca Light Brown (7NGV), is perfect!
I feel like a spa day isn't complete without a face mask, to me, they're the ultimate symbol of relaxation. I love putting on a face mask whilst I'm watching something, and taking it off always makes my skin feel amazing! My favourites are the Tea Tree one from The Body Shop and the Cupcake one from Lush. The Cupcake one smells amazing and works really well!
Books vs MoviesI do a Literature degree so I think it's safe to say I love reading, and on a spa day there's nothing better than curling up with a book and some sweets, but sometimes I want to watch a movie as well, especially if I'm painting my nails. I thought I'd give you a list of some of my favourite books and movies to help you try and decide.
- 21 Jump Street
- 13 Going On 30
- Pitch Perfect
- Easy A
- The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
- Northern Lights - Philip Pullman
- Inkheart - Cornelia Funke
- Angelfall - Susan Ee
