I don’t know about you, but once I have finished work for the day I love to put my slouchy, comfy clothes on as soon as I get home. Queue the start of my evening routine.
I often wear my dressing gown (or house coat as I call it on a daily basis) over my clothes initially, is that weird? Then after my tea I will go change in to my PJs. I think I do this for the fear of needing to nip out, and it saves the hassle of getting changed again. I have an over-planning brain!
I love getting in to my pyjamas of an evening. I have quite the collection to choose from.
I recently got sent this set from Pyjamas.com and I am obsessed with them. I’m very fussy about the style of pyjama I like to wear. Straight leg pants that are elasticated round the ankle are my absolute favourites.
There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night and your PJ legs are round your knees. Hate that.
Now I’m not as fussy with tops, but I do love ones with short or long sleeves. I can’t do strappy tops. I’m always cold in my sleep, even abroad, so I need some coverage.
An over sized T’Shirt top is the dream. Super comfy, and not tight for when your tossing and turning in bed. Plus, I think an oversized top with fitted pants looks really cute.
That’s why when I saw this Little Mermaid set on Pyjamas.com I fell in love. The Disney design caught my eye instantly. They have great adult PJ’s on there of all designs. But I can never resist a Disney (or Harry Potter) design for my pyjamas.
Once I am in my comfies I try to wash my face before I settle down to watch something on TV. Otherwise I know I will be sat for a while, get comfy, start to nod off & then just want to flop on to the bed.
Then I just swipe a bit of micellar water and toner over my face, followed by a night cream & I am good to go, (to the couch).
Of an evening I like to sit and relax in front of the TV. We have Netflix on our TV (which you will know from my instagram), so it’s pretty much all we watch.
I love putting on a movie, or a few episodes of a series I am watching. Watching films and dramas helps me to unwind from the day I’ve had.
I’ll often use this time to have a nice fruit tea, scroll through my phone, or flick through a magazine.
Once I am in bed I won’t go on my phone again. I will either watch something on my iPad, or read. More recently I am trying to read once I get in bed, because it really helps me get to sleep.
If I have an evening that allows me to do this – come straight home, have tea, PJ’s on and chill, then I am a happy bunny.
Most evenings aren’t like this. I’ll be out at an event, with a friend or at the cinema. So on these nights when I get home late I’ll put my PJs on right away and sit with a drink on the couch. I hate to come straight in and crash out.
If you’re mooching for new PJ’s then I do recommend checking out Pyjamas.com. They offer sets for kids, men & women, at good quality and great price.
I’d love to hear about your evening routine, and if you’re a pyjama collector like me. Are you a fellow Disney print wearer?
