'That Time Of The Month' Pick Me Ups

'That Time Of The Month' Pick Me Ups
Bit of a different post to what I would usually write about but I am presuming most of the people who read my blog are girls so this sort of topic will be familiar to you, sorry boys. When it comes to that time of the month some of the time we get it rough and some of the things we experience is being stressed, moody, then happy, then moody, sensitive, irritability, bloating, spots, cramps, headaches...I could go on but you catch my drift. What we need when we get these annoying things is some 'me time' and to really treat ourselves to a relaxing evening to take our mind off of it.

1.) The Bath Cocktail: One of the best things to do when you feel down in the dumps is to have a bath cocktail filled with lots of goodies. Get some candles lit, bubbles overflowing everywhere and maybe even a bath bomb/fizz bar. When I am in the bath letting all the bad things dissolve away I like to stick on a face mask and sometimes even a hair mask then give my body a bit of a scrub with Soap&Glory's sugar crush body scrub. I also like to sit in the bath with my phone and watch something on Youtube, catch up on blogs or just browse social media sites to take my mind off things.

2.) The After The Bath Pamper: Once I am all dry I like to get into my most comfy pajamas and socks to feel nice and snuggled, these are usually covered in Disney print not going to lie. I then sometimes go ahead and paint my nails, maybe moisturize my body and plait my hair so it is out of my face as I find when my hairs tied up I can properly relax same with when I remove my makeup. 

3.) The Little Treats: I will stick the kettle on for a nice cuppa whether that's an herbal tea or if I am feeling daring a hot chocolate. I also grab either some chocolate or if I don't want to be left feeling crap I've recently been eating chocolate coated rice cakes which are very light snacks but addictive. Other things I would recommend if you are really feeling down is some hot chocolate covered in marshmallows, Ben&Jerry's Phish Food or even some good old custard creams to dip into your tea. These are some of my favourites!

4.) The Entertainment: If I have had a really crap day and I can't bring myself to do work I will take a night off and do something to take my mind off it. Whether that's watch a good Disney film or Harry Potter (these are my go-to films). Maybe play a game preferably Sims or just on my Playstation. Or maybe even just listen to some music to relax to whilst reading a book. Just something that will make me a bit happier and take my mind off the time of the month.

What are your 'time of the month' essentials??

  24. I usually ask my mum to hide chocolate from me. Yup, I'm crazy. The thing is, I'm always having 'hate myself' moments during that time of the month and if I eat lots of sweets, I will hate myself more and probably start crying. Oh my God, I'm actually turning into a drama queen because of mood swings haha :D
