Pink skies up ahead!

I think we can all breathe a big sigh of relief knowing January is finally coming to an end. I swear that felt like the longest month ever. Today is January the 31st, but it feels more like January the 724th.

I am a big believer in the Parks and Rec ‘Treat yo self” life motto. You know life is short, buy the shoes and all that jazz. Buy yourself that beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers, because why not? I am also a huge believer in self-care if some small purchase or a little gesture will improve yours (or someone else’s!) day then do it. Don’t get me wrong self-care isn’t always about spending a fortune in Topshop, lighting a Yankee Candle and eating a tub of Ben and Jerrys to yourself. Sometimes it’s taking time out to re-charge, simple things like eating better or doing that massive pile of ironing you’ve been avoiding. I, on the other hand, bought myself these beautiful roses and a packet (okay, okay two packets) of mini eggs for no other reason than because it made me happy.

While on the subject of flowers this stunning Maison Margiela Replica ‘flower market’ fragrance turned up one day, from the lovely girls over at World Duty-Free. For me this scent is so different from your standard floral aroma it smells crisp and fresh, without being overpowering. The Replica fragrances are designed to reflect our personal memories; I love that.

I treated myself to this lovely pink polka dot pen set from TK Maxx; I am an absolute sucker when it comes to stationery, my mum always taught me to carry a pen in my handbag aren’t they pretty? I love the dreamy ‘pink skies up ahead’ case.

I picked up a chocolate and hazelnut croissant with this months copy of Vogue this morning because when you’re an adult, you get to make adult life choices such as eating chocolate for breakfast. #treatyoself After driving all over this week, it’s been nice to sit and have a relaxed morning, remembering to eat breakfast while getting some work done. I have Teen Mom, playing in the background, I can’t remember if I have mentioned it on here before, but I am seriously obsessed with that show and have watched it for years do any of you guys watch it?

Another series I have been recommending to absolutely everyone is ‘This is us’ not only an incredible cast (Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia to name a few!) the outstanding storyline will have you laughing, smiling, and bawling your eyes out. I am on series two, and it’s such easy watching the soundtrack is amazing too so if you’re looking for a new series to binge on there you have it.

Well, this has been quite a rambly blog post, hasn’t it? Sometimes I like to take pretty photographs of whatever I’m doing and catch up with you guys, simple as that! Here’s to February xo

    This is such a lovely post, I’m a big believer in self care too! I’ve made the adult life choice of picking up a copy of Vogue, fresh roses & a chocolate croissant too on more than one occasion & it’s one of my favourite things! Also love your cute pink pencil case, the ‘pink skies up ahead’ is such a girly touch! xoxo

    I can definitely agree with you that I’m glad to see the back of January! This post has given me the nudge I needed to go and treat myself to some pretty flowers (and maybe a packet or two of Mini Eggs!) I also must try a fragrance from Replica. I keep hearing such good things about them, but still haven’t got round to actually trying them out. This one sounds particularly lovely.
