Be honest, sometimes you just want to unplug. Especially as the stress of a new year ramps up, nothing would suit you or ease your mind more than some gentle, peaceful “me time.” These days, it can be difficult to truly unplug, or at least to do so without consequences. Whether it’s that report that you’re waiting for approval of, the email that you’re expecting from your professor or the text you’re fawning over from that cute Starbucks barista, we’re always ready to communicate and connect with others. While this is nice, because it’s a luxury that I know my grandparents didn’t experience, it’s also such a burden at times. Last night, however, I did just that; I disconnected from everyone and everything. I turned off my phone & all of my tech accoutrements, had a good bath and snuggled up with some good reading and fell asleep so happy and at peace. Everyone needs a night as such every once in a while, and I can tell you that I now feel rested, recuperated, rejuvenated & ready to face the rest of the week.
Anyway, what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t show you what I used?! Thus, here’s a round-up of what products were used and my general thoughts on them, plus, some other funky things that I consider “essentials” for nights like these.
