How to make a day off last longer

Girly lazy day ideas, how to spend your day off and make your day off last longer
Here are the perfect ingredients for the perfect lazy day and how to make your day off last longer. When you work so hard, a lazy day is the most beautiful feeling ever. This is written straight from the heart, I spend so much time crawling around the house on my hands and knees through tiredness, I can't describe the bliss when I get to spend a day at my own pace and take everything s l o w. Here are some chill out girly ways to spend your day off, how to make the relaxing last longer...

1. Day off-eve - use the coming down of the day to kick back, relax, enjoy freedom. By treating this as part of your day off, it gives you more time to enjoy it. You could spend the whole night in the bath, sleep through the evening or stay up all night, spooning marshmallow fluff, no limits!

2. Be spontaneous - when you shake up your routine and try something new, your brain pays more attention to the details and the way you process time changes, time seems to last longer. 6am hikes are definitely optional, I prefer to opt for lovely and gentle things like watching the sunrise, going for toasted waffles for brunch, randomly tidying a drawer, totally deviating from your normal chores, you could even organise a spontaneous sleepover or go to enjoy dinner and stay over at a loved ones house. Any random or spontaneous thing, no matter how small, will inject a lot of fun.

Ways to 'glow up' you haven't heard of yet...

I decided to make my own little version of 'how to glow up'. When I was around 15 I developed some awful version of Body Dysmorphic Disorder. I had to make excuses to keep going to the toilets to check or almost prove to myself that I looked okay, I couldn't understand why I looked so wrong. I was desperately trying to maintain a state of decency because I could so easily slip in to looking horrendous.

What I got for Christmas 2018!

I really love reading what people received for Christmas. For me it's like living the whole Christmas morning experience all over again through others eyes. They make me happy haha, I have about four open to read while I burn my spiced white cocoa candle. I love learning about each thing and the sentimental values behind them. I love looking at all the pretty things. I had a lot of fun making my own, but the best gift of all was enjoying a lovely festive period full of all my family on different days.
What I got for Christmas, just girly things blog
The first item I received was this super fluffy white Topshop fleece here from Mitch. It's like wearing a big marshmallow, so fluffy and comfy, like a mobile hibernation pod haha, so I even when I don't feel good I can cosy up in this and still look stylish lol. I want to live in it all winter.

I received the Boudoir Eyes palette by Too Faced, which I didn't ever expect. I had no idea anyone knew about my love for Too Faced and I absolutely love these previous editions. I think they have re released these palettes or made similar ones with different glossy packaging, but I love the older ones.

Thoughts on being better safe than sorry*

The definition of the saying 'Better Safe Than Sorry' is to be cautious so that you do not make a mistake you will later regret. People who are better safe than sorry to arrange and organize ahead of time so that they do not have to face negative consequences in the future. This may mean they are physically safe or that they are safe from bad events.
