30 Chic Days at Home - Day 27 - Luxurious Mornings

My lockdown shower-time routine is something that has evolved and I love it so much.  I've always enjoyed long, hot showers, and I alternate a quicker shower one day with a longer one the next (when I wash my hair every second day.)  I make quite a big production of things and it's fantastic :)

I still get up early (6am mostly), because I read in bed with tea, and then about 7am I have my shower.  I love fragranced body products and like to set out what I'm going to use that day before I turn my shower on.  Like laying out your clothes for the day :)  There is quite the selection...  I always put body butter or something thicker and richer on my feet, a normal body lotion on my legs, and a pretty scented body lotion on my arms, shoulders, stomach, and decolletage.

In the shower I have a scented soap, because I love soap so much more than shower gel.  I don't like to waste anything so I always stick the old soap to the new one.  This thrills the thrifty part of me.  And the other favourite thing I have in the shower is my $10 Bluetooth speaker.  I recharge it once or twice a week and stick it back up on the shower wall.

I listen to YouTube videos and audiobooks and it makes my shower time so enjoyable.  I just started a new audiobook, it's called 'The Housekeeper' by Natalie Barelli and I'm enjoying it immensely so far (the reviews are great too.)  If you have read it please let me know if you liked it, but don't give away any of the plot please! I love audiobooks, both fiction and non-fiction, and listen in the shower, the car, with my earbuds while walking the dogs, hanging out the washing, doing the dishes...

I have recorded one of my titles as an audiobook so far, and plan to do more.  If you would like to hear me read 'Thirty Chic Days' to you, you can download the audiobook here (and listen to the introduction and first three chapters as a taster too.)  I have priced it at 50% off (usually $19.99, now $9.99) for the next couple of weeks.  I hope you enjoy it if you decide to purchase with this special offer!

  1. I love your Thirty Chic Days audio book and have listened to it more times than I can count! I'm so glad you are planning to do more.

  2. I too love soap, real soap, and not gel. I've always loved soap, quality soap, and it makes the bathroom smell wonderful. I think, especially after the Coronavirus problem, soap will make a return to favour. I sincerely hope so. I love Neste Danti soap, Floris, Penhaligon's, L'Occitane, and Roger & Galet.
