November is slowly creeping to its end, the holidays are slowly creeping closer. And for me it’s the coziest time of the year. Setting up the fireplace, lighting some candles and crawling under a blanket… Lovely! Winter is my ideal excuse to fit in some me-time. We’re inside most of the time anyway and in my spare time I try to do as much as I can to spoil myself.
My first year-and-a-half as a freelancer are behind me. An interesting year that had its ups-and-downs. The job can be tough! So a healthy dose of me-time is more than welcome. 🙂 So I’ll be spoiling myself today!
My favorite must haves for a dose of me-time? Find out all about them on today’s blog.
SELF Christmas gift
I’ll get right into it, my absolute favorite has to be SELF’s Christmas sets. You probably already know SELF is my go-to skin care brand. Why? Their products are 100% natural and vegan! They contain macadamia, shea butter, argan oil, coconut and aloe vera.
My sensitive skin has its problems, such as rosacea, and means I can’t just use any product. SELF’s products are specifically designed for the problematic and sensitive skins. Their stuffed with nutritious ingredients that maintain, restore and protect the skin’s moisture balance.
My Christmas and Winter decoration? I’m getting that at Meubelen Jonckheere in Belsele. A bigger than average furniture store that is stocked with everything you need to turn a house into a home! How I love lighting some candles when the skies turn dark. Afterwards I’ll crawl under a cozy blanket surrounded by only the softest of pillows! Meubelen Jonckheere has various departments, allowing you to find what you want per style. These candles are topping my wishlist!
Prima Donna Baboushka
With this Prima Donna set you’ll head stylish yet sexy into those Winter months. Coincidentally, my boyfriends nickname: baboushka! 😉 The set fits perfectly with Prima Donna’s black lace kimono.
Winter also means I stock the house with tea. Tea is usually the answer to life’s little problems! If i need a break? I’ll pour a cup of tea! Feeling down? Tea! You get where I’m going with this: I love tea! 😉
I get my tea’s from the Belgian brand Blend Tea: they offer a wide range of natural tea blends. The service is incredible and there’s always an extra bag to test. My favorite is the chai: a lovely, herbal and spicy flavor.
