Autumn Routine

As we may have all discovered here, Autumn is my favourite time of the year. The crisp leaves, fresh air and wool knits. But Autumn evenings have to be my favourite part of each day - a little slice of heaven. Burning scented candles, switching to richer  body butters and melting into the sofa with a mug of hot chocolate. I revel in this down time so much that I'm going to let you in on my perfect Autumn routine, step by step...

1. Make-up Removal
No evening routine can truly commence with out a make-up free face, in my opinion! There is nothing worse than the feeling of shiny skin, with your foundation slowly slipping of your face (often the case here) and this is the first thing I get straight too when walking through the door. Using my Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm.

2. Bathtime
A long day calls for a long soak, and LUSH products usually make an appearance. I love the Dreamtime Bath Melt and I've got a few bath bombs waiting to be blown...

3. Body Butter
I'm a huge fan of The Body Shop body butters, and I love using them in the evenings, especially for the colder months as they are super nourishing. Their Cranberry scent is AMAZING and is a range they bring out every winter, and I've gone through my fair share.(I can't find it online to link it up - doh!) Rumour has it that they've just launched an Apple range? I'm gone need that...

4. Comfy Clothes & Candles
Who am I kidding, you'll usually find me in comfy clothes. But, in the evenings especially, I like to don many a stretchy pant and pj top. I also love to burn candles in the Autumn, and at the moment I have a Yankee Candle scent on the go - Red Apple Wreath. Throw a blanket over me and I'm set for the night.

5. Hit The Sheets
I've mentioned my love for the ThisWorks Deep Sleep Pillow Spray on here a couple of times previously, and I'm at it again! I have no issues with sleeping - I'm the queen of sleeping, in fact - but this step in my routine is key for me as it feels like my sheets are giving me a gentle hug as I drift off into slumber...

NOTE: Many scents are used in the making of this routine. It's not as overwhelming as it may sound...

What is your most loved step of your daily Autumn Routine?
