when you have a night to yourself...

A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Mexico with some of our best friends. One of our friends posed a question at dinner one night that i thought was really interesting + says a lot about a person, depending on how you answer! The question was “if you had a night at home to yourself, what would your perfect night look like?” It was so interesting to go around the dinner table and hear everyone’s answers and how different they all were! So I thought it would be fun to share some things I like to do, if I have a night to myself at home! [Which, now that I have Shiloh is hard to imagine lol. But let’s assume I put her down for the night and THEN have the night to myself!]

The night would definitely involve a hot bubble bath. There is something so incredibly relaxing about soaking in the tub, with my favorite Capri Blue candle lit. I just got this bubble gum volcano candle and I am OBSESSED with the adorable light pink color! To me, the ultimate relaxation involves a warm bubble bath, a Capri Blue candle, and a good face mask, for about 20ish minutes!

I’ve talked a lot recently about the importance of rest and self-care. To be honest, when/if I ever get a “free” night, my tendency is to work. Catch up on e-mails, write another blog post, reach out to another brand, etc. I’ve been forcing myself lately to consciously take time to unplug. Put my phone away, don’t open my laptop, don’t scroll through instagram…and let my brain rest, or choose to fill it with good, encouraging things. Taking a bath is a great way for me to accomplish that! And something about lighting a candle just sets the tone for the night…am I right?! Capri Blue has been my FAVORITE brand of candles for years now and something about lighting one at night just helps me get into my relaxation zone! Seriously, there’s just nothing more comforting and relaxing than a Capri Blue candle in my opinion.

Another way I like to relax + detox when I have a night to myself is reading a fiction book! I know it sounds ridiculous, but I’ve been forcing myself to read a fiction book at least a few nights a week…because it’s such a good way to NOT be productive and let yourself just relax! I love to pour a glass of red wine, light a candle, cozy up under a blanket, and loose track of time with a good fiction book! PS – how amazing is this jumbo volcano candle?! I LOVE how big it is because the scent can fill up our entire first floor! Smells SO GOOD. This jumbo candle would also make an amazing housewarming gift for a friend!
