Good morning everyone, Hope you are all doing well. I have been rather busy lately so haven’t been able to post as I normally do. Today’s post is on the little things that make a big difference, specially in these current situation. So I thought I would do a little positive spin on things that can help with picking me up for those days I may be feeling a little low. Here are a few things that I reach for on those particular days, these are my indulgences and by no means a suggestion. I like to pamper myself now and then and I think we all deserve that once in a while. So take a scroll down to see what I do to achieve that.
/ PYJAMAS /
Right so first up is a set of luxury silk pyjamas, one that I can lounge around in all day long but at the same time feels great on. I love to wear my pyjamas as outerwear, so I like to dress them up. Now it doesn’t take much if the pyjamas are silk but they don’t have to be. The pair I am wearing is from Jessica Russell Flint, this gorgeous super silky set features their Lucy & the Swallows print. The bottoms come with a drawstring waist and flow beautifully! All I need to do to dress them up is add a pair of heels and a bag and I am all set! Take a look here on how I styled these pyjamas for a day time look.
Now I absolutely adore candles just ask my boys and my husband. They have banned me from purchasing anymore until I burn a few. I like most of you love for my house to smell nice and burning a few candles whilst you take a bath is another way to unwind and relax. I have curated below a few of my favourite candles let me know which one you like!
COSY LOUNGE WEAR
Moving on and onto cozy lounge wear which has had a big spike due to lockdowns! Just like it’s cousin the pyjamas lounge wear is another little luxury I like to wear. I like nothing better to do, when I am at home to put on a pair of cashmere lounge wear set, my dressing gown and snuggle up on the couch. There is an array of colours and styles out there. My favourite pair of lounge wear would be from Eberjey as they do the most softest and comfortable lounge wear sets.
Last but by no means least is skin care, a luxury in itself to get that beautiful glowing skin. I mean who doesn’t want that right?! I have recently invested my time and effort into making sure that my skin is feeling and look it’s best. Therefore having to wear minimal make-up, what better time to do that then now. As most of us are at home it’s a great way to kick start that skin care routine if you haven’t already done so. I have just started using retinol, I was a little hesitant at first as I am with any new product I use on my skin. But I must say I was pleasantly surprised with it, so far it has been really good. I have had no breakouts as that was my number one fear. I rarely break out so I didn’t want this to be the case after using retinol for the first time.
So theses are a few of the little things that make a big difference on the days I really need to give myself a pick me up. What are the little luxuries that make a big difference to you? Do let me know by leaving a comment below.
