The Sunday Wind Down


Nothing rings quite so true than the lyrics, "I'm easy like Sunday morning." The prolonged lie-in, followed by a slightly fuzzy head from the night before, allowing the perfect excuse for a day of doing nothing guilt-free.

Granted, some Sunday's are more proactive than others with a long walk, gym session or soaking up some local culture, but once the weekly roast is devoured, I'm well on my way to winding down....

Hiding under the faux fur throw, Netflix set up with a rom-com or true crime documentary, nothing completes a weekend wind down without some additional creature comforts to get all cosy. These are the ones I'm currently obsessed with..

Starry Nights - Bella Freud
My go-to scent is anything but feminine. Musk, oud and anything remotely woody can be found in my fragrance collection. A friend once asked me what this candle smells like and I could only describe it as imagining a man with a penchant for strong aftershave who just spent the night...in fragrance terms, it's filled with frankincense, nutmeg and tonka bean.

Sunday Suppers book
Quite simply the holy grail of Sunday comfort food cooking, this aesthetically pleasing cookbook leaves the Monday - Saturday coffee table arrangement and is opened up to choose one of the many delicious recipes to cure the hangover. Written for group gatherings it's ideal for those nights when the girls are round.

diptyque Santal Candle
This candle has seen me through the whole of winter with a chunk still left to burn before the spring season starts. It's the ultimate cuddle in a candle scent with all my favourite woody blends. I usually pop this on while indulging in some pampering, the ultimate setting for those well-needed cosy vibes.

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Body Cream
In sharp contrast to my musky fragrance preferences, this sweet yet rich souffle is my everyday moisturiser. It's one of the first products I tried from Laura Mercier in my late teens and I've never strayed, mainly due to its comforting scent leaving my entire body smelling like a French patisserie. Once lathered on - in my case sparingly, I slip into oversized baggy comfies and enjoy an evening of nothing.

Slip Silk Sleep Mask
When the latest crime series has been binged, I say goodbye to the weekend with a spritz of pillow spray, cocoon myself up in all the throws and a pop on a silk eye mask.

Monday, come at me!
