TAKING A LITTLE TIME FOR YOURSELF

lifestyle blogger
With the rush of Christmas drawing ever closer, daylight hours getting shorter and weekends filled with the stresses of running errands and Christmas shopping, I believe that it's an important time to take a little time for yourself. Here are 5 things that I enjoy doing when I'm in need of a little 'me' time.

1. Colouring.
There are so many great colouring books around at the moment, my favourite ones are The Harry Potter Colouring Book and The Enchaned Forest which is full of toadstools, dens fit for fairies and wildflowers galore. Colouring can really help you to switch off and indulge in some time alone.

2. Give yourself a Manicure.
Turn on some music (I'm currently favouring Christmas songs!), prop open a magazine and choose your favourite shades. Take your time to follow a manicure routine with a base coat, colour, top coat and nourishing cuticle oils to pamper your nails. Add a glittery accent nail with an Essie glitter like Tassel Shaker for a festive touch!

3. Bath.
Melt into a long bath full of soft bubbles to recharge and unwind. There's something so soothing and calming about soaking for half an hour or so. For a bath time treat I normally opt for something from Lush or Laura Mercier's Creme Brûlée range for their dreamy bubble bath offerings.

4. Read.
For a few moments to yourself, read a captivating book enveloped in blankets and with a festive hot chocolate in hand (bliss). On cold autumnal nights I recommend reading The Night Circus, The Selection Series or the new Harry Potter illustrated edition book (it's incredible!).

5. Go on an Autumn walk.
Whether it's wondering to your nearest store to check out their Christmas offerings, taking a slow stroll around your local park or walking to the coffee shop, fresh air can really help to clear your mind. With golden leaves paving the way and fairy lights strung up in the trees its the perfect time to get out for a little while and maybe take a few instagram snaps too!

What's your favourite thing to do for some 'me' time?
