As you know, I have been pretty poorly recently and spent a lot of time curled up on the sofa feeling sorry for myself. It can be pretty difficult to feel good about yourself when you are under the weather but I have a few staples that have been making my life a little more relaxing recently. For me, there's nothing more relaxing than a bath and this Radox bubble bath is lovely. I love the fact that it doesn't smell too sickly sweet either, the masculine, almost woody, scent compliments my new scented candle perfectly and acts as a subtle base for my deliciously peachy moisturiser. I have just found out that the peach range is limited edition so I will have to stock up, this smell is seriously addictive!
Trashy TV and films are part of any good relaxation routine and in between watching one of the many Friends repeats on Comedy Central, I rewatched some of my favourite films. Sometimes a good cry can help to make you feel better (cue Moulin Rouge) but I tend to stick to cheesy and feel good to cheer me up. High School Musical 3 can cure all manner of evils! ;)
Soft cosy lighting definitely helps me to unwind and I love having scented candles dotted around the flat. I have been burning this one in the evening and so far it has barely made a dent in the wax- I predict this will be burning for a while yet!

So there you have a few of my favourite ways to kick back but what about yours, how do you relax?
P.S. Melt Candles sent me this candle to review and, as ever, all opinions are my own...
