To try and keep myself posi and able to look after my pup, I have been looking for ways to relax at home. I'm still on my spending ban which is just a nightmare as all I want is to buy a million Lush bath-bombs and other yummy treats, but I'm being inventive and using scented oils and lots and lots of candles which has been just as effective!
Here are some of the best tips I find create a relaxing state of mind, which hopefully can come in useful to anyone in a bit of need of looking after themselves just as I am right now.
Give yourself a home mini manicure - I find painting my nails therapeutic and pretty nails make me feel a bit more 'together'.
Watching a funny film can cheer you up, as can reading a good book - I love nothing more than getting lost in the world of fiction and reading for hours without realising the time.
A bath can literally wash away the hardest of days. Teamed with candles and aromatherapy oils, I close my eyes and am far, faaaar away.
Music - I like to listen to chilled out music but nothing too sad as music can affect the mood maaassively - whilst drinking some herbal tea for added bliss. Or listen to it REALLY LOUD and sing along on the top of your voice to let it all out.
Treat yourself to a home facial. Red magazine have Liz Earls Hot Cloth Cleanser as a freebie just now, which I've read so many amazing blogger reviews on.
Surround yourself with scented candles. Smells have such an effect on the mind, I love calming lavender or vanillas.
Love You Lots ♥
