Bold statement warning: - We're very much Pro-Valentine.
In an ideal world, we would all be practicing and recognising ourselves each and everyday, but we all know how easy it is to overlook self-care in the hustle of daily life. We declare the 14th a day of self-appreciation! A day to spray your expensive perfume, wear that sassy underwear set and things-aside, just spend a little extra time acting only for yourself.
We've compiled a little list of our favourite little luxuries, recipes and rituals to get you feeling a little more loved up whether you're spending it solo or not.
SCENT: Rose 31 - Le Labo. We love the perfect blend of rose and earthy tones in this scent. Plus the refillable nature of these solid perfume blended with coconut and almond oil make them our ideal choise. If rose isn't for you, explore. Le Labo are King of the molecules and have a whole host of delights.
ADORN: Mirror Mirror Hoops - YCL Jewellery. We absolutely love these earrings, and find there's something that is just so decadently feminine about adornment. Whether you're someone who layers on multiple pieces or chooses the occasional piece, notice the energetics of the process. From intuitive selection right through to the way you feel when you wear a particular piece. It's so sacred.
TASTE: Vegan Raspberry Chocolate Mousse Tart - Lazy Cat Kitchen. No words needed.
STRETCH: Pink - ChromaYoga. Combining gentle stretching, breathwork, essential oils and sound frequencies, this feels like the most nurturing yoga class you could ever gift yourself. Invite a girlfriend to join and share the love.
BURN: Moon - Evermore. We take our candle obsession very seriously (cue exciting collaboration!). And because of this, we love Evermore candles. Hand-poured and blended with organic coconut oil, what's not to love This ones a heady blend of Rose, Sage and Amber.
MOMENT: To tune into your heart space - try this. Sit comfortably with your feet planted into the ground. Take a couple of deep belly breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. Place your hands together in prayer positon until you feel the warmth between them, and then take and place fingertips gently on the chest. Continue breathing deeply for 5-10 minutes.
SOAK: Milk Bath Bath Brew - Addition Studios. We know self-care isn't all bubble baths and guilt-free chocolate eating, but who doesnt love a good soak. These are essentially large tea bags for the bath - genius. And this one is a nourishing blend of Goats Milk, Cacao Butter and Lavender.
Enjoy beauties and Happy Day of Love x
