Little mood lifters

There are times when we can all feel a little down or disheartened and in desperate need of a ‘pick me up’; some find that in the form of retail therapy or just having a bath. I’ve compiled a couple of little mood lifters for today’s post and I hope they brighten up your day!

If you need a total break from everything, reading is so therapeutic. Even just a magazine is great to take your mind off things. I just finished reading ‘Me Before You’ by Jojo Moyes and OMG that book is just amazing. There are no words to describe how incredible it is and there is a definite possibility that it’ll be in my February favourites. I could get lost for hours in a book and it is just such a great way to escape.

Painting my nails is such a simple task but I find it’s a great way to just take time out of the day. I have a new found love of Essie polishes and the one that is on my nails right now is the shade ‘eternal optimist‘ a gorgeous dusky, barely there, pink shade – perfect for all year round. Plus you get something out of it – beautiful nails! Painting my nails is probably my favourite way to kick back and relax.

Fifteen minutes for a face mask is perfect for a little break and as someone who’s not fond of baths I find it a great way of still pampering myself. I love the Mask of Magnamity from Lush as you really feel like it is making a difference to your skin. Just sitting back with a face mask and watching a YouTube video (or multiple YouTube videos) lifts my mood totally. There is something weirdly therapeutic in watching someone flawlessy blend eyeshadow.

A few little mood lifters to brighten up your day – I hope you enjoyed this post!

    I love this post! Self care is so important! One of the things I never think of when I think about my self-care routine is painting my nails, but I actually always feel so much better after I've done it!

    Thank you! It's one of those things that you don't really think lifts your mood because we do it so often but it really does!
