Firstly make yourself feel better with a gorgeous warm shower or bath - this brings on relaxation and regardless of how your day has been, it will make you feel somewhat refreshed and ready for a chilled evening. I will always treat myself to my weekly hair mask treatment so that my week of hair spraying, straightening, hair drying and brushing can all be forgiven!
My next key initial point of setting up Fabulous Friday, is to get into clothing you feel comfy in, personally I suggest your favourite PJs or comfortable clothing. During this chilly February I hate nothing more than being cold, so investing in a good pair of PJs, a fun onesie...or even a variety of Onesies should be top priority!
You've been showered and clothed for your evening...already feeling good? Splendid. Next thing I tend to do is get my dinner sorted or at least get it cooking, I then suggest picking a good film for your evening. I am a very typical girl and adore chick flicks, romantic comedies, musical and classics.
With the face mask on its onto the nails. I tend to like to begin with removing all nail polish completely on both my fingers and toes, then I'll begin by trimming, buffing and filing.
I absolute love moisture socks and gloves so after I have prepped my nails initially, I often pop these on to pamper my needed feet and hands. If you don't have moisture socks or gloves, put lots of moisturizer on your feet then pop some socks on but don't rub the lotion in as it will be absorbed, this will give your feet the same or similar outcome as moisture socks would. With regards to hands... to be honest I've never not had moisturizing gloves, but you could always cover your hands in lotion and just keep massaging it in until completely absorbed.
Whilst your hands and feet are feeling pampered with lots of lotion, I will then enjoy my dinner and get into the film. The whole key point of Fabulous Friday is to keep relaxed and to completely unwind.
After about 10 minutes the gloves come off, then it is into the bathroom to rinse the face mask off. Splashing my face with cool water until the mask has vanished I’ll then apply some night cream and return to my sofa. The socks will come off after around 20 minutes and then what I tend to do is massage any remaining moisturizer into my feet.
I can now begin sorting the actual nails out with some nail strengthener, cuticle lotion and finally a colour of my choice! I always love to finish with a fun colour ready for the weekend.

The rest of the evening will mainly be me enjoying a lighthearted film, maybe a good cup of tea and some cheeky biscuits. Instead of venting about how horrible the weather is, indulge in the fact we can all stay in and relax... that's exactly what I'm doing!
