As the colder weather sets in, I have some tricks up my sleeve for keeping the Winter blues at bay and to ensure I don’t shrink into a lethargic slump… which I definitely have a tendency to do, especially as the days grow shorter and darker…
Trick number 1: Make sure I get outside every day to grab as much vitamin D as the weather allows… I grab a coffee, head out for a stroll and feel the cobwebs being blown away with every step.
Trick number 2: Wear clothes I love. It would be so easy to slob about in joggers and a tea-stained sweater, but getting up and putting on pretty pants (these help more than you’d think) and a favourite dress, makes me feel properly put together, happier and ready for the day.
Trick number 3: Make sure there are always fresh flowers in the house – the more the better, but really it’s whatever I find and what I can afford that week. Fresh blooms are a slice of Spring throughout the year and I love the fragrant aromas wafting from room to room…
Fresh flowers are my treat. Those and pedicures.
And pretty mugs.
And gigantic oozy burgers.
What I wore
(The cardigan I’m wearing is from a few seasons ago, but Anthropologie have updated it with a new beautiful version, which I’ve linked to above).
