With the nights drawing in and life feeling a little less ‘sunny’ than normal, you might be feeling just a little bit meh! That’s completely understandable and I promise you are not the only one feeling this way. Sometimes a bit of me-time can do the trick or trying some of these simple beauty hacks can make you feel instantly better, in turn lifting your spirits. Give at least one a try and let me know what you think?
All about the gloss
Something so quick and simple – slap on your favourite lip gloss and you’ll instantly feel a bit more glam and just generally a bit brighter. I have a favourite from Mac that I always use. It can be pricey but it does last ages so well worth it for me.
Brighten that hair
I had my hair cut and coloured yesterday and boy does it make a change! It was my first hair appointment in over 6 months and I desperately needed it. I decided to go a lot blonder than usual and I’m really glad I did. I have tried to go darker before but I feel like I’m much more suited to being blond. Whichever shade you go for, visiting the hair salon will make you feel better no doubt.
Now this is a great way to completely transform your look! Have you tried coloured contact lenses before? Chiara Lens is one of the best international non-prescription contact lens brands specialising in the development and design of fashionable lens masterpieces. You can choose from a super selection of colours, giving you a completely unique look and most importantly, a change! My eyes are naturally green but I would love to see what they look like brown or blue. Which colour would you choose?
Treat yourself to a new scent
It’s amazing how a scent can completely lift your mood or transport you to a totally different time or place. I recently discovered how amazing the Jo Malone scents are. Late to the party, I know! They are so fresh and luxurious and are definitely going onto my Christmas list. If you are looking for a bit of a’lift’ then try some samples and see which perfume positively effects your mood.
Don’t be dry!
Does anyone else have dry skin from the summer? My legs and arms are especially drier than normal. Probably because of all the great weather we were lucky to have? Choose a gorgeous hydrating body cream and slather yourself in it each morning and evening. It will make you feel better and will also be really good for your skin. You’ll see a change within days.
Bubble baths all the way
Every time I run a bath for my kids, I think ‘I wish someone would run me a bath like this’! Well whether you have someone to run one for you or you need to fill it yourself, you just won’t ever regret having a luxurious bubble bath. Dim the lights, light some candles and choose to sit in silence, play some music or take a book in with you. The choice is yours. Whatever way you do it, taking a bath is a cheap and cheerful way to quickly lift your mood.
