Relaxing Sunday

Sunday is the perfect day for relaxing and a little pampering. I love spending an hour in the gym in the morning and then it is time for some well earned rest.

Relaxing Sunday rituals

Doing my nails is usually first on my agenda. I do tend to switch up my nail color during the week, but it usually ends up being a rush job. On Sunday, I start by applying a nail oil (I am loving Essie’s Apricot Oil right now) and giving this time to sink in and moisturise my nails and nail beds properly. Followed by a base coat, two coats of my chosen polish and a quick dry top coat and my nails are good to go.Relaxing Sunday rituals

Sunday is also the perfect day for a face mask. I am trying the Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial at the moment. I am not going to give anything away just yet, a first impression post will be up next week. My fine hair doesn’t do well with hair masks, but if your hair needs them now is perfect.

I have to admit I am a little lazy when it comes to taking care of my body. My shower doesn’t have heating and is very cold, so in winter I jump into my robe. In the summer months, I try to make up for my neglect by moisturising properly. The Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil is one of my favorites: great moisture, lovely smell and it sinks in quickly!

After all of this pampering, I prefer to retreat to my couch with a cup of tea and a nice book or magazine. A couple of sprays of the Body Shop Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow and Body Mist is great for creating a relaxing atmosphere. Truly, my perfect Sunday. How about you? Any Sunday rituals?


Zondag is de perfecte dag voor relaxen en een beetje verwennerij. Ik ga meestal ‘s ochtends een uurtje naar de sportschool en daarna is het tijd voor welverdiende ontspanning.

Mijn nagels staan meestal als eerste op de agenda. Meestal wissel ik tijdens de week ook wel van nagellak, maar dan is het vaak erg gehaast. Op zondag start ik eerst met het aanbrengen van een nagel olie (op dit moment ben ik dol opΒ Essie’s Apricot Oil) en dit laat ik goed intrekken om mijn nagels en nagelriemen te verzorgen. Daarna een basis coat, twee laagjes nagellak en een sneldrogende top coat en mijn nagels zien er weer perfect uit.

Zondag is ook de perfecte dag voor een gezichtsmasker. Ik probeer nu deΒ Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial uit. Ik ga jullie nog niks vertellen, een eerste indruk komt binnenkort online. Mijn fijne haar is niet echt dol op haar maskers, maar als je haar het nodig heeft is nu natuurlijk een handig moment.

Ik moet toegeven dat ik een beetje lui ben op het gebied van lichaamsverzorging. Mijn douche heeft geen verwarming en is erg koud, dus in de winter spring ik meteen in mijn badjas. In de zomermaanden probeer ik dit goed te maken door beter te hydrateren. DeΒ  Body Shop Moringa Beautifying Oil is echt een favoriet: vochtinbrengend en snel intrekkend met een geweldige geur.

Na al deze verzorging mag ik lekker op de bank gaan hangen met een kopje thee en een boek of blad. Een paar sprays van de Body Shop Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow and Body Mist zorgen voor een ontspannen atmosfeer. Echt mijn perfecte zondag. Hebben jullie nog zondagse rituelen of die je liever iets energiekers?

      Oh no, I am sorry for being such an enabler. At least the body shop isn’t that expensive πŸ˜‰ And it us a very nice relaxing mist, even better if you keep it in the fridge during the warmer months.

    This is such a lovely post, I love pampering myself on Sundays. I usually like to massage coconut oil into my hair on Saturday night and put it up when I go to sleep, then wash it out Sunday morning, I find that it really helps my hair! β™₯

    Sounds like a very relaxing Sunday πŸ™‚ Sunday’s are the days when I wash my hair and do a treatment for it, use a face scub and mask, scrub my body too and apply a fresh layer of fake tan and do my nail polish. Just cannot get myself to exercise though πŸ™‚

            Yes I will be moving across the country in 4 months! I am really looking forward to it! Vegas is a nice place to visit but for me wasn’t my favorite place to live. There are a lot of fun things to do here and neat things to see though. πŸ™‚ xxx

    I’m getting ready for bed and was thinking about my Sunday! I already have my magazine ready too! And I have a sample of a Glamglow mask to try out! That body mist sounds really nice. I wish I had that right now. What country do you live in? I see you have the post in two languages, is that German or Dutch? I would love to speak, read and write another language!

      Funny, sundays are just the best invention ever. What magazine did you go for?
      I have just popped the body mist in the fridge for an extra dose of freshness πŸ™‚ You can just grab any toner you happen to have!
      It is Dutch! Good guess πŸ™‚ I am Dutch and I live in the Netherlands, but I hope I might be able to live abroad again in the future πŸ™‚

        Putting the mist in the fridge is a great idea, never though of that. Good tip!! πŸ‘ I visited the Netherlands – Amsterdam on Queens Day in 2014. Loved it!!!!!!!
