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.

I adore your pjs Lovely! The color and print are gorgeous. We all need a day to chill and hang out in pjs.
I need a new pj and also always on the hunt for the lounge wear!
Oh theses definitely cheer me up as well.
I love to purchase new pyjamas.
And lately I also purchased loungewear to feel comfy at home even if I love to dress up.
And Just like you I tend to have more make up free days.
It’s so important to take care of ourselves with theses crazy days.
Those pjs are gorgeous! x

OMG! I love your pajama!
I’m not a fan of loungewear, but yes to silk pyjamas, candles and pampering skin care! Never underestimate the little things in life that make you happy! xxx
I love to pampar myself too, your pajama is so beautiful!
I love the idea of silky pajamas as outerwear! And why not? The bright pink is a fabulous color on you, Lovely!
Love all of the little things you mentioned! I’m a big fan of cozy clothing. There’s something about a warm sweater or my favorite pajamas that just make me feel safe and sort of at peace. 🙂
Your silky pjs are gorgeous!
Make Life Marvelous
I’m all about good skincare because it’s a feel good and a look good thing. But the jammies…now there’s something I need to be better about.
Oh those lounge sets look SO comfortable!
I live about 5 minutes from the waterfront so one of my ‘luxuries’ is to walk out of the pier and along the marina. Smelling that salt water just brings peace and contentment!
Tu pijama es preciosa y me encanto tu selección de pijamas y velas, aunque yo soy más de incienso, pero tus velas se me antojaron, saludos:D
I love cosy loungewear too, especially in the winter! Those pyjamas are beautiful x
Such a cute PJ!!
have an amazing weekend my friend,
I’ve been using silky pjs lately and it feels so good on the skin! They really do make a difference!
I love your silk PJs! Yes all these things make us feel better. I guess a little pampering is required these days. Love your blog Lovely!
Everything looking very nice! Have a great weekend! 😘😘😘
Troppo bello questo pigiama ! <3
I loved this post! When I was younger and I would receive candles, I never appreciated them but now that I’m older, I love receiving candles!!
Totally agree, taking some time just to pamper yourself should be an habit!
I’ve got almost the same treats of you: I especially like scented candles and taking care of myself with luxurious masks!
Your pj looks so nice and comfy!
Love your beautiful PJ set! It really is the little things that bring the most joy, I love candles too.
You look ever so chic! I’m in complete agreement with your points, particularly lounging in silk pyjamas; they add an air of elegance to staying home 🙂
I’m really not a pampering-myself person, to be honest. I don’t like massages or pedicures, I don’t wear pajamas or loungewear, and I loathe candles. I am weird that way!
I am a big believer in self-care, though – taking the time to blow-dry my hair and put a loose curl in it, getting dressed in a “real” outfit, or sitting and reading a book with some music on. Ah, that’s my idea of pampering.
I love your pajamas, Lovely – I remember you wearing them as a fashion outfit and they are fabulous. 🙂
What lovely statement pyjamas! I like having a lot of scented candles burning too! 🙂
Hope that you are having a good weekend! 🙂
Your pajamas are absolutely stunning! I love candles too. Having my home smell good is such a mood booster for me!
So cute! Love the fun design too. I just bought a pair of fun pajamas and can’t wait to wear them lounging around the house! Happy weekend!
Totally agree it is those little treats that make a difference. The silk PJ’s are simply gorgeous and must be divine to wear. Good skincare and self pampering are also indulgences of mine. Enjoy your weekend.
Everything you need to give yourself a little pleasure. I’m just planning to buy silk pajamas.
I picked up pretty much every single one of these during the lockdown and it made it so much better, especially silk pajamas. it just feels so luxurious!

Your PJ’s look so cute and comfy. I agree with you on importance on allocating some time on yourself, it will help you to re-charge, re-think and re-fresh your wellbeing
Your pj is so amazing. Have a beautiful day!
Those PJ’s are gorgeous hun!
I love your PJs, and I 100% agree with your list of what makes a difference. Some comfy PJs, candles, skincare, SELFCARE, I’m sure it all makes a difference if you’re having a busy or tough week!
Your PJs are so dreamy, Lovely! And all the fab products for some “me” time are great! I bet a slumber party at your house would be so fun! Haha! 🙂
Love your PJ’s and the pics. So cute x
I have really discovered cozy lounge wear for myself in this pandemic. I am working in home office and although I love dresses, after picking up my kids form kindergarten, I grab my lounge wear.
