Femme Luxe Loungewear Review (Size 12) Gifted

I was gifted the products discussed in this post, but all views and opinions are 100% my own!

In the quest to relax as much as possible during these tough times, I’m sure loungewear sales are rocketing as we want to be comfortable, but fancy getting out of our pyjamas in the morning. I’d been searching around for cute loungewear sets I could actually see myself wearing, so was glad to be approached by Femme Luxe to try some items from their loungewear collection. They kindly allowed me to choose 3 items from their range to try, so I’m here today to present you with an open and honest review!

Just as a little background; I’m around 5’10 and generally wear a size 10/12 both top and bottom depending on what the clothing item is (but I do have a bigger bust, wide hips, small bum). I’ve never ordered actualΒ loungewear before, I’ve just picked up the odd pair of joggers here and there. I have been getting a bit sick of feeling so slouchy whilst working from home, so was interested to see what loungewear had to offer.

Ways To Relax During Lockdown

Lockdown; A security measure taken during an emergency to prevent people from leaving or entering a building, thanks dictionary.com. It doesn’t sound pleasant by definition and most certainly is not pleasant in reality. Self-care (and the importance of it) has become more prominent over the last few years, and it’s needed now more than ever. Whether working from home or not, it’s important to find the best ways to relax that suit us best.

We’ve spent a lot of time not being able to escape our four walls. It’s understandably going to take a toll on our mental health. It’s not like booking a week off of work where you’re able to visit family and friends and actually do things and go places. This is not an easy time, so I think it’s important we’re still taking time out to just allow ourselves to truly relax. If you’re stuck on ways to wind down after a long day of doing lots or doing nothing, then I hope this post offers some helpful ideas! Thank you to a lovely bunch of bloggers that also contributed to this post, sharing the ways they enjoy relaxing during lockdown.

Chatty Tuesday: 5 Ways To Unwind After Work

Happy Chatty Tuesday everyone! Believe it or not, today’s blog post came about whilst I was sat at my desk at work, thinking about how I can unwind as much as possible when the clock ticks past 17:30. Sitting on my bum for 40 hours a week doesn’t sound like a strenuous job, but it’s mentally rather taxing. I’m not one for wishing precious time away, but I do find myself daydreaming about all of the things I’d much rather be doing. Winding down after a long day at work or even university can be quite difficult, so I wanted to compile a doable list of things you can try to relax that extra bit more.

I’m not currently at university and never have been. I chose to work full time instead, so I can’t speak personally from a student’s perspective so this post will be aimed more at those in work with a bit less free time. As a bit of context, I currently work full time in an office. I leave the house at 8am every day and get home around 17:50. So, before bed that gives me around 5 hours to “unwind” in. This is the tricky part. When you have to wedge relaxing and me-time around doing the washing, cooking, cleaning, washing yourself or even putting the kids to bed, it can be difficult to know what winding down even means when before you know it you’re up and on the go again. Here’s 5 ways to unwind.
