In today’s fast-paced world, with a constantly revolving work and social life, it can be deemed that it’s important to be busy – and always showing it too. Resting, relaxing, daydreaming, call it whatever you will- sometimes it’s important to do absolutely nothing!
With a world pandemic that, let’s face it stopped us dead in our tracks, combined with the autumn nights drawing in, sometimes it’s inspiring to reflect on the finer things in life- which also means the slower things in life.
To truly lounge, is an art form. It’s not just a quick sit down whilst you think of what to do next but it’s savouring in the delights of pure relaxation, whether that be self-care or taking time out. Slowing down is often when our best ideas percolate, and it gives us a real chance to breathe.
Here we’ve curated our favourite ways to set the atmosphere…
What To Recline On When Lounging
We know the comfy end of the sofa is where it’s at, teamed with your favourite throw and cushion. But if you want to get seriously luxurious with the lounging, we recommend The Paisley Chesterfield by Darlings of Chelsea. Not only is the dusty rose pink a perfect tone for relaxation but it’s soft velvet feel will have you reclining for weeks on end. See you on the flip side, sweetie.
What To Wear When Lounging
Whilst the importance of self-care can come in many guises, there is one starting point that never goes amiss- the attire. Think the glamour of Joan Collins teamed with the elegance of Grace Kelly and you have Bombshell HQ’s latest addition, the Luxury Velvet Robe, excitingly available in two lengths. It comes in charcoal, ruby, dark turquoise and dusty rose. Matchy-matchy with the sofa optional, of course.
What To Write In When Lounging
Of course the main notion of lounging is really to do nothing at all, but if you must do something we suggest less screen and more au natural, starting with a journal of paper! The Saffiano by Aspinal is keeping with the pink theme and is handcrafted while it also comes in different colours. You can even have your own name embossed in gold. A perfect gift… for yourself, darling.
What To Drink When Lounging
A quintessentially English tradition never goes amiss when lounging- and the mighty British cup of tea is a comfort to all. We recommend the Queens favourite cuppa providers, Fortnum & Mason, who have the exclusive Royal Blend (originally blended for Kind Edward in 1902). If you are in the mood for something different the Fortums Black Tea with a dash of peach is just enough for a sweet tooth. Beau-tea-ful!
