Pamper Evening

I'm sure you all have those days when you just come so fricking tired from school, highschool or work and all you want to do is to lay down and have a little bit of "relax-time". I had one of these kind of days two days ago, and, with the urge of my day-by-day quote book, which said to "Soak in a hot bath", I've decided to have a pamper evening. Not just because I needed to calm down, but also because hot baths are pure Heaven when it comes to being able to free your mind from all the bullshit you accumulate during the day. Also, having a long hot bath is certainly a feel-good treat and it gives you a luxurious feeling of sheer pleasure.

Steps for having a pamper evening
(Enhace the calming experience!)

1. Buy foam bath and some pretty candles.
2.  Prepare your bath: turn on the water and add the foam bath.
3. Lighten the candles to improve the atmosphere.
4. Turn off the light and announce your parents that you make a 
spiritual ritual. (this is optional)
5. Take something to read or watch, e.g. a fashion magazine, a book or something on your e-book, some videos on your iPad and so on. I chose to scroll through architecture instagrams, because this has become one of my greatest and newest passions. 
6. Finally, soak in the wonderful bath! 
Take your time and stay as long as you wish, it's your moment.

Now, I want to share with you a beautiful passage from the book I am currently reading, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. It is about hot baths and I find it so relatable and true!

"There must be quite a few things a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them. Whenever I’m sad I’m going to die, or so nervous I can’t sleep, or in love with somebody I won’t be seeing for a week, I slump down just so far and then I say : “I’ll go take a hot bath.”
I meditate in the bath. The water needs to be very hot, so hot you can barely stand putting your foot in it. Then you lower yourself, inch by inch, till the water’s up to your neck.
I never feel so much myself as when I’m in a hot bath."

Take care!
