Hey guys! Welcome back. The semester is almost over which means it’s almost time to relax and rest before the new semester begins. One of the best ways to do that is to take a weekend just for yourself. Ideally, this is the weekend after finals week. You can do it every weekend or just one. But relaxing is always better when you have a few key things with you to make the experience more enjoyable. Here are mine!

Books. When there are breaks I always like to read. I have a stockpile of books and with Better World Books, I accumulate more and more books throughout the year. So I really like to catch up when I am on break. I love reading autobiographies and fiction novels. If you have any recommendations, leave them below!

Snacks. No matter if it’s healthy or not healthy, snacks are always a good thing to have on hand. I always like to have light snacks on hand like fruits or crackers. They help prevent me from overeating throughout the day.

Nail polish. There is nothing quite like a new shade of nail polish and freshly painted nails. Whether it’s your fingers or your toes, painting your nails can help you feel like a completely new person. KL Polish is one of my favorite nail polish brands!

Face masks. I love face masks because they help bring my skin back to life. I have intensely dry skin, especially in the winter, so face masks help revive my skin. I love the Freeman Black Sugar & Charcoal Mask. It’s inexpensive and effective.

Candles. I love candles. They help create a relaxing atmosphere and can make a room smell so much better. There is nothing quite like getting in the bath or curling up on the couch with a candle lit. Of course, Bath and Body Works has some amazing candles.

Those are my lazy day/weekend essentials! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Comment your essentials below! Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
