A NIGHT IN WITH MYSELF

A NIGHT IN WITH MYSELF

I know it may not seem like it since I travel so much but I’m a homebody. I love to go out and see people but it can be draining for me so I love the time where I am able to recharge and reset. A night in is usually how I do this. One of my favourite things in the world is throwing on comfy clothes, having a snack, making a tea and watching a movie. I teamed up with Nordstrom & Shopstyle for my guide to my ultimate night in.

I was just travelling for pretty much two months straight, my body is tired, my skin is breaking out and i have no idea what time zone I’m in. So, the first thing I did when I got back was schedule in a little me time. I went to the Eaton Centre to hit the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which is going on through August 4th. You still have time to visit your local Nordstrom store too and shop the Nsale. If you want to shop the sale early next year, make sure to sign up for a Nordstrom credit card and receive exclusive perks, like Early Access to the Anniversary Sale and more. It’s free to sign up for the Nordy Club too which scores you things like curb side pick up.

I can never have enough comfy clothes, and I wanted a cute summer set to lounge and sleep in. I ended up finding this Madewell PJ set, I love that its short sleeve, because i’m literally boiling hot all the time. I also am a slipper fiend so I picked up these Ugg slippers, not part of the Nsale but still super comfy and they matched the PJs. Check out some similar slippers here. Low key, I also bought some Sugarfina candy (always a must when i go to Nordstrom). The Nordstrom Anniversary sale always has a ton of not only comfy clothes but jackets, denim, workout clothes and shoes on sale. I even saw some home stuff on sale in the Eaton Centre, comfy throw for the night in? Yes please.

Ok so for me, I like to do my entire skin care routine before getting the night started. I want all of that makeup and dirt off my face ASAP. Check out my skin routine here. I do like masks, they aren’t a priority but if I’m feeling super lux i’ll do a mask. I usually like the ones you don’t have to wash off because I’m super lazy. Although not part of the Nsale, some of my favourites are:

Snacks are key. Sometimes chips, sometimes something healthy, sometimes a full meal. Then I end off with a tea. Either the Yogi Stomach Ease or a Fresh Mint Tea.

You all know I love movies. I’m a huge film nerd, and could watch movies for the rest of my life and be happy aha. Here are some of my top picks for a night in:

  • Darjeeling Limited

  • Moonrise Kingdom

  • Romeo & Juliet (1997)

  • Crazy Rich Asians

  • Rear Window

  • Mid90s

  • Singin’ in the Rain

  • Lost in Translation

  • Big Fish

Then I usually call it a night and go to bed early so I can wake up the next day, early, feeling refreshed. Let me know what your favourite nights in are in the comments. Thank you to Nordstrom & Shopstyle for sponsoring this blog post :)
