Happy Sunday my loves, I hope you have all had a lovely holiday so far and if you celebrate christmas that you had a lovely time with your friends and family.
After all that rushing around the sales, eating lots of yummy food and being surrounded by family the come down of the holidays can be quite a shock. Here is the thing, it doesn't have to be, you can ease yourself in to it by simply having some you time by winding down doing some of your favourite things.
One of things I love to do is to start the process off with a shower. There is something about getting in the shower and using some of my favourite products and smelling nice that makes me feel happy and comforted. I am currently using the products that I posted about in my last shower post
. They are some of my favourite things and I get excited to use them all the time.
Then it is time to get things around you to help you relax, make yourself a hot chocolate (my favourite is a chocolate peanut hot chocolate - no instant stuff!) Grab a magazine (Allure is my choice) make sure you have a remote near you with a DVD (Love Actually, Little Women anything you like) Make sure you have some chocolate on hand and just take it all in and enjoy.
Afterwards, I put on some pyjamas, comfy socks and get all snuggly. If you have a candle this would be the time to think about lighting it.
I love spending time with people but if there is something the past couple of years have taught me is that you need to be comfortable being by yourself and look after yourself. Trust me, you will thank yourself for looking after you in this way.
How do you look after yourself?
Lots of love
