AT HOME WITH US...
REST + REPAIR
If you follow us across all of our social media channels, you will know that we don’t really stop. We love what we do and we work really hard every day; whether we are working in our gym and cafe, on the computer, in meetings, creating photoshoots or on the gym floor training ourselves and our babes, our lives are busy. Unfortunately we don’t get to spend a great deal of time at home as we basically live in our gym, however the time we do get to spend there is really special to us and we really focus on keeping it as relaxing and rejuvenating as possible. Today we thought we would give you a little insight into our home life, particularly our nightly routine.
After a long day at work, we absolutely love coming home and jumping straight into a beautifully warm shower and then cozying up into our PJ’s on the couch. We use this time to wind down, pamper ourselves, nourish, nurture and repair our bodies. Here is a look at what our nightly routine looks like:
We always start cooking dinner as soon as we get home, creating and eating a delicious and nutritious meal to share with our loved ones. If our sweet tooth starts calling, we have a little healthy treat like these gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free treats from Clean Treats.
Then it's time to light our favourite en flamme candles to start relaxation time and shower, washing our face and removing make up with a cleanser.
We start our very simple and effective beauty routine by applying Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum, followed by a night cream (we also love Estée Lauders Nutritious Night Creme for it’s double hit of antioxidants). The serum is one of our favourite beauty products and is a must at night, as it keeps our skin looking healthy, fresh and radiant. We have both recently entered our 30’s and have become more conscious of our beauty routine. We now understand the importance of using products like Advanced Night Repair serum to assist us in reducing the signs of ageing, we just wish we started to use it in our early 20’s. For our body, we like to keep it simple by smothering our body in a good quality cold pressed organic Coconut Oil.
We often like to prepare a decaffinated herbal Pukka Tea and then collapse on the couch with our loved ones to enjoy some quality time together, followed by checking Instagram and sitting on our laptops catching up on emails. Every so often, we will watch some TV. We love watching reality TV to take our mind off our own reality for a while (it’s usually recorded episodes of the Kardashians or E news!), oh and at the moment we are really loving Fashion Bloggers TV.
Finally it’s sleep time - We aim for 8 hours every night!
We hope you are all having a beautiful, happy, healthy and relaxing night.
Lots of Love F & D xx
