Me-Time Tag

Thanks to the absolutely beautiful Jessica from Making It Up for tagging me in this. Me-time is so important to me, without it I honestly go a little crazy, so it's great to share this time with you guys, and find out how you spend your Me-time too!

What do you watch or read during me-time? 

I watch… Either, a good girlie film; I love Sex in the City, In her Shoes, Mean Girls etc, Netflix although I’m still in mourning from finishing Orange is the New Black about 3 months ago (!) or catch up on something trashy like Real Housewives or TOWIE.

I read… At the moment I’m obsessed with Lesley Pearse books. I have two more left to read until I have to start extending my collection again. I’m also reading Hotel Babylon which is an absolutely fabulous read for anyone working in the hospitality or London events industry. You wouldn’t believe the things that go on in hotels behind closed doors! I have a lot more in the series to read so I need to get a move on. I’m hoping I’ll get to read a lot now I’m commuting into London every day!

What do you wear during me-time?

I have a ridiculous amount of loungewear clothes, like it’s a bit of a joke. I love anything from Victoria’s Secret PINK and pretty much live out of their clothes when it’s comfort over style! I also have an insane amount of love for my onsie, especially because it’s soft and has ears – what more 
could you want? 

What are your me-time beauty products? 

During me-time, I'd prefer not to have any makeup on, mainly because faceplanting my light grey sheets isn't going to end well with a face full of slap. I do however love a little pamper with exfoliators, moisturisers, and anything else I can find in my endless supply of products. 

Current favourite nail polish?  

Ohh such a hard question! If I had to pick just one, I’d say it’s Avon Nailwear Diamonds in Mystic. It’s quite a subtle shade so perfect for work but still have all the shimmer and glitz when the light hits it. So beautiful, if you don’t have it, you should!

What do you eat/drink during me-time

If it has an insane amount of calories, it’s going in my mouth. When I was at uni my housemates and I used to have the biggest fat food shop and spend a whole day baking literally everything you can think of then spend the whole of the next day in front of the TV eating ourselves into an oblivion… oh those were the days! I don’t think hot drinks (I know, shocking) so I’d have a big glass of squash, or if I’m at my parent’s house then a cocktail expertly made by my dad!

Current favourite candle? 

I love candles, but I’m not a candle snob at all. If it smells beautiful, I’ll love it, regardless of the brand! I love anything fruity or fresh and really dislike spicy smells!

Do you ever have outdoor me-time? 

Outdoor me-time for me is relaxing outside around the Nirvana spa pool in the summer, or sunbathing. For me, me time means relaxation and not doing much so that usually means I’ll be inside where no one can see the state of me!!

Would you ever go see a movie alone? 

That’s something I don’t think I’d ever do! I mean, the cinema is ridiculously expensive as it is, and you have to be appropriately dressed to be in public, and you have to sit straight in your seat surrounded by other people. I’d rather be starfishing across my bed stuffing my face whilst texting/tweeting on my own than in the cinema!

Favourite online store? 

Tough one! For a solely online store, I love Missguided for fashion and Look Fantastic for beauty.

Anything to add? What else do you do during me-time? 

Me-time is really important to me, without it, I’ll literally go insane. Working onsite at events, we can work 21/22 hours a day, every day for a week so I need that time to de-stress and relax. I love yoga for relaxation or even just laying on my bed daydreaming and planning my next move whether it be thinking up ideas for events, planning a holiday or a surprise for a friend. Planning relaxes me! 

Love Lauren xx



  1. Love this post, Lauren! I totally agree that I'd rather be slouched on my bed with a film than in the cinema in a numbing upright position.

    Looking forward to writing this post... thanks for the tag! :) x


  2. I love our local cinema as it's got big tub seat leather arm chairs and sofas so you can curl up and don't have to worry about stranger's elbows! I still get fidgety if any film is longer than an hour and a half though... much better to be able to curl up at home and raid the fridge whenever you want! xo

  3. I'm the same as you with candles - if it has a nice scent I will love it! Really like this tag!

  4. Did you ever watch Hotel Babylon? That was such a fun show!

  5. I love wearing comfort clothes in me time and just chilling out! Yankee candles are also my faves x
