Take 1 Hour

I have been majorly blog slacking and I hate hate hate it. So today I am scheduling like a mad women to make sure I have new content *most* days! Phew. Being so busy at the moment and just being the biggest stress head ever have forced to create the best chill out hour. Just an hour.

Normally like having long baths and take a whole night to indulge myself in me time. But exam season is upon us and I have a million and 1 things to do so I have made sure I have an hour to myself every night just before bed.

All you need is 5 things:

Soft lighting (yummy candles work best)
A good book ( I am re-reading 'How to be Parisian' again)
A good playlist (currently loving Lauren Elizabeth's 'Whats up dude' playlist)
A good cup of tea (Twinings Dragon fruit one is my current love)
Aeroplane mode.

I feel at the moment like my eyes are constantly locked to my phone or I am constantly texting people and it sucks. There are only so many times you can re-fresh twitter, trust me. Put your playlist on, then aeroplane mode and put your phone where you can't reach it. It is a revelation, who knew you could sit and not have your phone buzzing every 2 minutes. It is the most peaceful place.

Lets face it, without time to ourselves we would go insane, and when life gets so busy an hour to yourself is a god send. This is perfect for a Sunday chill out, hey maybe extend it to a few hours or a few days! I wish.



  1. I agree with this so much! I find myself constantly on my phone, or constantly on my laptop, it doesn't matter what i'm doing i'm never disconnected! I do this quite a bit and it's so refreshing isn't it! Doesn't last long though unfortunately haha, once i'm out the bath my fingers are found reaching for the phone!

  2. I love this post, it is always so nice to spend just a little time to yourself, even if only an hour! It can make the world of difference, even to a fellow stress head like myself! xx

  3. Such a good idea putting your phone on aeroplane mode. Sunday's are perfect for taking a break lovely post

  4. I am a nightmare for watching tv or even working myself stupid then expect to sleep straight away after! Trying to force myself to wind down an hour before too but it's proving difficult! Good luck with your exams!

  5. Yes, sunday = Break day all round xx

  6. Ah same, as soon as that hour is up I need to know what I have missed hahaha xx

  7. As a huge introvert, I totally need time to myself and get this post. With everything going on throughout the day and online, it can be hard to seem like there's any time to relax. It's SO important to put the phone away and just focus on yourself sometimes xx
