Love does not simply come but once a year, I know, however celebrating Valentine’s day shouldn’t be something which is received with shock horror if there isn’t a significant other in your life. INFACT, even if there IS a significant other in your life, let it be a reminder to show some love to you. YOU deserve it, and even if it’s simply having your favourite drink, chomping down those chocolates, or grabbing that favourite perfume you’ve always wanted to re-purchase – DO IT (Valentine’s Gifts For Him & Her - more on these shortly!).
Big or small, when you have the opportunity to show yourself some love then take the chance to show love to yourself for being magnificent, to keep your soul happy. Let’s visit some of my favourite feel good senses.
First off, I truly believe that you can’t beat smelling incredible in order to feel ultimately special. As a decadent treat to me, I would look to Clive Christian for the ultimate indulgence. Think “The Private Collection Feminine Edition”.
“A characterful collection of perfumes of incomparable complexity that explore the fragrant facets of a lifetime, an aromatic journey that encapsulates natural beauty and true creativity. Five 10ml miniature amber bottles are presented in a beautiful black and gold gift box, containing C Green Floral, L Floral Chypre, I Woody Floral, V Fruity Floral and E Green Fougere.”
Treating myself to a new turn of the season wardrobe, or just deciding to dress up a little more special one day, “just because”, always gives me a boost. Even if I just simply take advantage of the latest sales, oh head on over to the designer department, just a new shade of fun wear really lifts my chin.
Also, I always find an evening painting my nails or playing with new make-up looks before bed is really great to add a little self sparkle to the end of the day. Even with nowhere to go but the “land of nod”, just having a little makeover of a night really does leave me feeling fancy. You can wipe it all off, then pop it all back on again in the morning to face the day like a queen.
A moment to savour your favourite sweet or savoury treat should never be ignored. For me, I can’t help myself when it comes to a cute little cookie, or a precious tasty cupcake waiting for me on the counter of a local bakery ANYWHERE. I don’t tend to overindulge, because I know it’s not always the best thing for me if I go a little too crazy, but if my happiness is craving some “ultra deliciousness”, I’m not going to say no. You’ve seen my afternoon tea adventures, right?!
Speaking of tea, I've definitely had to feature my favourite mug. If you love hot beverages, you have your favourite mug, right?
"The apple of your eye. Your sweetheart. Your darling. Everytime they hold it, they’ll get a warm feeling. Hold a good thought. Handmade. Creamware. Made in England."
WHATEVER you do and however you represent yourself in life, even if time is limited and feels hard to procure, do whatever you can to find just a moment, from a minute to an hour, or even half day to a full on pyjama clad Sunday in the rain, remember to make time to celebrate you, and be mindful of your own happiness. Without balance in life, your mindset will suffer, and the things you love best and want to do most with get hard and harder to achieve.
If something can wait. Make it wait. If you want to go glam, you go glam. Feet your ambitions and enthusiasm for life by keeping yourself well loved.
