Hello my lovelies! We're one month away from Summer being over, and there's only 134 days left of the year, and I've been doing some reflecting. You see, a lot has happened for me over this last year; and that's not including the shit show that 2020 has been for the world. Other than 2020 [...]
t's the time of year where we're being bombarded with adverts to buy the latest slimming supplement, drink, diet and workout plan; and it sucks. For those of us learning to love our bodies for what they are (beautiful, in case you're not sure), being constantly told that we need to lose weight now that Christmas is over is just horrible. So for the past week and a bit I've been putting together a list of body positive and self-care Instagram's that you need to be following!
Which brings me to this post. For as long as I can remember, I have made New Years resolutions each year; and EVERY SINGLE ONE has been about how my body looks and my weight. It's always along the lines of: I will lose weight, I will drop a dress size, I will change my body, I will go to the gym 6 times a week, I will stop eating certain foods etc. etc. etc. And this year I REFUSE to make a resolution about my body.
It's #SelfcareWeek ! And it's got me thinking, what do we actually think classes as selfcare? For me, I typically start thinking about face masks and bubble baths. And well yes that can be classed as selfcare; but as amazing as those things are, there are hundreds of other things you can do. And over the last few days, I've been doing a few of these myself.
We all know that feeling when pay day hits; you know, the feeling you get when that little voice in your head says treat yo self! You deserve it! And then you go and buy a load of stuff that you forget about until you're surrounded by loads of mystery packages. Well here’s a load of presents to buy yourself for under £20!
