Hey everyone! Today I am going to show you what my lazy weekend night routine consists of. This is just meant to be cozy and relaxed. Please follow me if you aren’t already and enjoy!

The first thing I do is get COZY! This basically means I just change into some comfy clothes like sweatpants and a sweatshirt. I also love to light some candles to make my room smell super nice and festive depending on the time of year. I also feel comfier when my room is clean, so I keep my bed made and my room cleanish.

Most of the time when I need a relaxing night I am feeling stressed, which of course reflects on my face. In order to help control my acne and skin I will do a face mask. Some of my favorites are the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil face mask and any Lush one. I will also do a hair mask if I have some extra time. I will put some coconut oil, olive oil, vinegar, eggs and a couple other ingredients in my hair and then wash it out after.

Next I will take a nice hot shower. I do all of the normal shower things while I listen to music. Sometimes when I am stressed, having quiet time can be a curse, music is the answer. I just put up a speaker and listen to some of my favorite tunes.

After I get out of the shower, I do my skincare routine. I don’t feel completely lazy and comfy when I have makeup on. I first remove my makeup using micellar water and then cleanse. I also make sure to moisturize really well.
Every night I watch a crime show with my mom. We have already watched The Five, Luther, Sherlock and a few more. This time is really relaxing and makes me a little more tired. I also will have a snack during this time or some tea.

After the TV I will get ready for bed. Basically this just means taking some vitamins, brushing my teeth and flossing. I will also put my hair into a low pony tail to help it stay out of my face in the night. I think this just helps my face stay cleaner.

After I am ready for bed I will write in my journal or a to do list. This really helps me relax if I am feeling stressed. You will feel a lot better after you do this, so I highly recommend. After this step I will put my phone away for the night.

After I am all ready for bed, I sit in my bed and get all cozy. Then I read one page of the Bible. Now you may be thinking only one page?? But normally at night I am tired and can’t focus as well. So I figure it is better to take longer to read something and actually retain the information.

Next, I take some time to reflect on the day. This is an exercise to help me stay more positive while looking back on the day. I will write down 3 good things that happened to me during the day. It can be anything from I didn’t have any homework today or I won a giveaway!

Finally I will just read a book. I try to only read for about 10 or 15 minutes to just make me more tired, but sometimes I read for a bit longer because I can’t make myself stop. Right now I am reading The Mocking Jay from the Hunger Games series.

After all of that I will go to bed. I try to go to bed around 10:20 or so on week days, but on the weekend it is probably 12:30. It all depends on the time I have to wake up the following morning, I try to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
That was my night time routine! Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed, if you did please like and comment! -Briana
