A few unusual self care ideas!

I thought I would put together a light hearted post. It’s filled with lots of girly things but that doesn’t mean the important things don’t matter. Sometimes you just need a mini escape, so here are some random girly things and ways to make your heart swoon.

Home comforts

1. ‘Nature nudes’ girly pink print 👈🏻 this print is so quirky and cool and huge too, I ordered one to add a gorgeous pop of pink to my all white room. It reminds me of something you might find in Urban Outfitters. I think it’s incredible! 

2. Gorgeous girl illustration print 👈🏻 I absolutely love this gorgeous art, the artist is again so talented! I think it’s such a beautiful design.

3. Sailor Moon inspired, Usagi’s room scented candle 👈🏻 this is the most incredible candle, inspired by Usagi’s room, it smells like inside an ice cream cone with vanilla ice cream and delicious sugared pistachios. 

4. Laduree pastry mug 👈🏻 mornings with Laduree, for real! 

Lovely pins

5. Creative Juice enamel pin 👈🏻 I just love this, the most gorgeous gift for tea loving, creative people in your life/you.

6. Magical castle mirror enamel pin 👈🏻 the perfect ode to Disney, just the fact that it is encapsulated inside an ornate hand mirror, the stuff of fairytales.

7. ‘Send noods’ noodle dish pin 👈🏻 this pin made me lol and hungry at the same time, how cute is it??

8. Shiba dog butt pin 👈🏻 nope, can not resist an adorable animal pin. Hopefully it attracts cute dogs too.

More lovely pins

9. Cosmic jam pin 👈🏻 this pin is extraordinarily beautiful, I love all the intricate details!

10. Marshmallow Mickey Mouse pin 👈🏻 this pin reminds me of those Flump sweets, it’s the cutest thing.

11. Princess shield pin 👈🏻 this pin is everything girly, it would make a beautiful gift too, to cheer someone up.

12. My mood rainbow scale pin 👈🏻 I think this is so clever! It consists of a slider you can move to reveal your mood. I think this would be so satisfying – there is also a mood tracker jotter you can find here

Cafe themed items

13. Laduree macaron inspired bottle necklace 👈🏻 so tiny and so cute! I love the little miniature macarons. These are adorable!

14. Coffee and cake retro dessert sticker flakes 👈🏻 they look good enough to eat and you get so many in a pack!

15. Laduree cafe illustration friendship card 👈🏻 this is so dreamy, the most beautiful card you could give ps they also carry a wall print with the same illustration.

16. Red velvet flavoured lip balm 👈🏻 everything I wanted and more! The flavours are SO true to life and they also have strawberries and cream flavour; definitely, definitely try!

Adorable gifts

16. Red velvet cake in a jar 👈🏻 the stuff of dreams. Spoonable cake from a jar.

17. Home Sweet Home cookie cutter 👈🏻 I’ve never come across this seller of cookie cutters before, I absolutely love this perfect Home Sweet Home one and there are also all kinds of Disney character cutters you can buy, they are incredible.

18. Heart name jigsaw puzzle keys 👈🏻 this is such a cute idea, you can order a set of 3 or more key rings, based on however many people are in your family or household. I love the fact that they are personalised and everyone takes a piece of the heart with them. I don’t know a mum or grandma that wouldn’t love this!

20. Goofy guineas, guinea pig colouring book 👈🏻 this is wonderful, it’s bound to make anyone laugh and is the perfect way to relax.

Just a quick note that I stand in solidarity with all people of Black Lives Matter and all people protesting against awful cases of discrimination and bias. I will do what I can and always defend you. I am actively working to support action against awful cases of law injustice through donating and signing petitions and connecting. I am working out creative ways I can make a difference and be welcoming, opening up the cause to everyone – so important to inspire people and invite – never force or coerce! – in order to make a big impact at our next elections 👊🏿 ♡

    Everything in this post sounds absolutely fabulous. I agree with you. Sometimes, you just need to focus on light positive things. It doesn't take away from the serious and important things happening in the world…but sometimes, your heart can only take so much. The need to escape is essential for mental health. At least every once and a while. So, thank you for this <3
