Who doesn’t love receiving a care package? It is such a thoughtful way to show someone you care. Whether the person you love is away from home, not feeling well or just in need of some TLC, a care package is sure to cheer them up! That’s why I decided to put together a list of items that girls or women will love. I just thought about grouping together some nice things worth up to £25 or so and depending on your budget, you can group some of them together and create a fab care package with them. Some nice little bits that will put a smile on her face 🙂
“15 Simple Self Care Tips to make your life more satisfying”
Self care is extremely important, especially in this day and age when people are overwhelmed with work, commitments and time-management issues. A lot of the time, people get so over-worked that they neglect their own selves and end up completely burnt out and dissatisfied with their lives. The key to self care is slowing down. Its taking time for yourself, to focus on you. You often hear people say ‘Take care of yourself’ or ‘Look after yourself’ and thats for a good reason. You can’t possibly function properly whilst looking after everyone and not looking after yourself. Thats why its important to take some “You time”.
Today i have decided to take a break from the norm and do a little style blog. I simply couldn’t resist the urge to tell you about my latest fab finds! I admit I’m going off the beaten track from my usual blog stuff here, but its totally worth a shout-out!
As you may know, if you happen to follow my blog, I’m a huge fan of Eco everything. I truly believe in treating our planet with care. After all, we love it, so why shouldn’t we look after it? Im no tree hugger, but global warming is real and we all know it. Just some of us chose to ignore it. I know how it is, since i myself was in denial or years! I never bothered taking heed of my carbon footprint. Carbon what?? I thought that green living was for the Eco warriors, the ones that tie themselves to trees and live in them so they can’t chop them down. I always assumed those guys were just a bunch of hippies with no homes or something. That was then and now i realise that they were the ones everyone should have been listening to and supporting. I don’t know why up until the last 10-15 years, no one really seemed to worry to much about the planet! I mean, we only have one. For now at least.
So needless to say i was over the moon to be nominated for this. Firstly id like the thank all my friends and family for supporting me – (que Gwyneth Paltrow sobbing!)
Ah no really, this is so awesome! I am truly grateful and delighted to receive such a lovely compliment. Its such a motivating little spark of delight! I happened to be scrolling through Instagram the other day when i stopped to read the lovely Roxsanne’s Award post. Needless to say i was delighted and amazed to see my blog mentioned as a nominee. I couldn’t believe it so had to do a double-take. Sure enough her blog post mentioned mine with a link. I was naturally overwhelmed. Now I’m just a bit smug ha.
Back to my blog after a long winter hibernation there! It's been a very cosy and relaxing environment at home and i have enjoyed the snug winter whilst wrapped up warm in front of the fire most days! I have to say it is a novelty for me, since it's our first winter in our own home. Last winter we were extremely busy with the renovation of our house and ended up having Christmas at a relatives house due to the mess and coldness of our own. We had only started renovating in November and were probably half way through the job at the time so it was impossible since we didn't even have the roof fixed or fire in at that stage. This year was really special as it was a chance to decorate and have a proper Christmas in our own place!
