The Me-time Tag

What do you like to watch or read during me-time?
I only read one book  at a time, I know some people read a few at the same time but I think I would merge all the stories together in my head! I have really got back into reading lately as I have about a 50 minute commute to work. I’m thinking of writing a post about some of the books I’ve read recently. I’ve just finished reading A Gathering Light by Jennifer Donnelly which I have probably read about 10 times, it is one of my favourite books from when I was younger and even though it’s meant for young adults I would still really recommend anyone in their 20s to read it too. The photo above shows some other books I've recently read as well. 
As for watching, the old classic would be Friends. I’ve seen every episode at least twice but it is just really comforting. Or I would find a nice rom-com on Netflix. Can you tell my taste in tv and films isn’t that great..? haha.

What do you wear during me-time?
I recently bought some grey marl tracksuit bottoms from Topshop which are the comfiest things I have every owned so I would probably put those on and then some sort of baggy vest top. Or at this time of year I pull out my favourite Primark fleece pjs, they are from last year but are still so soft. I definitely want to buy some more this year! To be super cosy I would grab one of the many blankets on my bed and snuggle up. 

What are your favourite me-time beauty products?
To be honest, when I’m relaxing on my own I don’t really use any beauty products. The first thing I usually do is take my make-up off and do my skincare routine and paint my nails which leads nicely onto the next question..

Current favourite nail polish?
Essie Set in Stones which I featured in this blog post. It is so amazingly glittery and perfect for this time of year.  

What do you eat or drink during me-time?
I'll always have a cup of tea, there is nothing more comforting.

Current favourite candle?
I am so sad about this, but the majority of candles seem to give me headaches
L I used to love the Cranberry Yankee Candle but if I burn it for too long I get a really bad headache and I am yet to find one that doesn’t have this effect!

Do you ever have outdoor me-time?
Definitely not at this time of the year, but in the summer it’s really nice to go out into the garden to read and drink my cup of tea

Would you ever go and watch a film alone?
To the cinema? Probably not, I love going to the cinema as a social thing with friends, we usually go for drinks before or after. I think I’d feel a bit weird going alone.

Favourite online shop?
Probably ASOS, this must be the majority of people’s answer? I would love to find some nice independent stores though, so if you have any recommendations let me know!

Anything to add? What else do you do during me-time?
I eat, A LOT. Mainly chocolate or ice cream – such a typical girl!

Hope you enjoyed this tag! I first saw it on Fleur's youtube channel and then saw Jennie from Sailboat do it on her blog.

I tag Kayleigh, Sophia, Emma and Katie and everyone else who wants to do it! :)
If you've already done it link me in the comments!




  1. LOVE Gone Girl, amazing book and amazing movie! That nailpolish is beautiful, I think I may need to get that combo you photographed. This is such a great tag, I may have to do it myself :)

  2. I love this tag so much, I definitely couldn't read two books at once i get confused easily, and love a nice pair of tracksuit bottoms or festive pjs for home <3 xx

  3. Love this tag & really enjoyed reading your answers - can't beat a bit of 'me-time' every now and then! Browsing ASOS is dangerous, I can get lost for hours on there looking at all the beautiful things, especially now that they have more homey bits too! xx
