I am Anni from Glücksgeist. I’ve been blogging for nearly 2 years now about baking, beauty, fashion, DIYs and random stuff. This is my very first guest post! I always wanted to write one of these so I am super excited and super thankful, thanks Lindsay for asking me!
I am quiet a chilled person and I really enjoy having a chilled day so I thought it would be quiet nice to share what I get up to on a festive pamper day.
A festive pamper day is all about treating myself. I often forget to take some time for myself and relax and enjoy the moment, so these days are always so amazing.
To start my pamper day I take quiet a long shower because I am not a bath person, weird and sad I know. After that I use a fancy nice body lotion. On a day to day basis I use a good but not as pricy one. This one I got gifted from my friend last year for Christmas and haven’t started using it yet because it looks so nice. But as I said it’s time to treat yourself so I use this one on my festive pamper days.
I also have to put some soft cosy socks on after my shower. Otherwise it wouldn’t be a real pamper day to me. I got these socks from ASOS and they are the best thing ever. So soft and so nice to wear. They are also knee-high socks and really keep you warm because it is freezing where I live.
There’s also nothing better than sleeping in fresh sheets. I got these ones from Ikea and I am so in love with them. They feel so nice and soft and they are pink, so of course I have to love them.
I spent quiet a lot of time on YouTube these days and although I love watching vlogs I try to put my phone down more. I am way too attached to my phone so it’s nice to have some time without it and read for example. To me there’s nothing more special than reading a festive book at this time of the year. My favourites are Girl online and Let it snow. They put me in such a good and cosy mood and I always look forward to read them again.
I really enjoy reading in silence, so no music, no talking, no anything, but sometimes I really want to listen to something calm. I’ve been so obsessed with James Bay lately and I love listening to his songs on my record player. My favourite song to listen to whilst reading is ‘Scars’. So beautiful.
A few weeks ago I discovered my love to paint. I’ve been painting quiet a few paintings so far. I never thought painting would be so relaxing but now it’s one of my favourite things to do and definitely is a huge part of my pamper day. But to be honest I mostly do this before my shower because I get quiet messy with it.
And of course I need something warm whilst reading. I love fruit tea so I mostly drink that. I love the special winter editions. To me these are the best tea kinds ever but you can only buy them in winter so I try to make the most out of them.
I think my festive pamper days aren’t too different to my summer, or fall ones, but they are definitely way more cosy and chilled and incorporate way more hot drinks.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what you like to do on your pamper days.
