I’m more of a night owl than Justin but we try to get ready for bed around the same time in the evening. Our kids go to bed at 7:00pm so we usually have about 2 hours together before he goes to sleep, and then I take that time to head downstairs for a little quiet alone time (which is sweet nectar for my soul!).
I love beauty products so the evening is usually when I’ll take time to apply a mask or do a facial peel, but if I’m tired I just stick to the basics.

I don’t use every single one of the above products every night, but I do use a handful!
I’m always on the hunt for quality pajamas that will last and are comfortable to replace some old tanks that I have in my pajama drawer. These look lightweight and comfortable, and these slippers are cute as well!
P.S. A good evening skin care routine is only complimented by a good morning routine. Here’s a post about mine!
