For When You Feel Down In The Dumps

For When You Feel Down In The Dumps
So you've woke up on the wrong side of the bed, you accidentally pour out of date milk onto your Cocopops and you discover a stain on your favourite jeans, could things get any worse? I decided to write a blog post today on products I like to use that really help turn that frown upside down and cheer me up without instantly turning to a calorific chocolate cake.

I personally don't think there is anything nicer than making yourself a good cup of tea if you are feeling down in the dumps. At the moment I have been trying some sample teas from a tea box brand called Teatime*. I have been drinking a flavour called Lemune Superboost every morning and I instantly feel more motivated and prepared for the day. Another favourite is Jasmine Pearl Zen, which is nice to drink to unwind with after a long stressful day, as it detoxes and relaxes you. I definitely recommend these teas if you are a tea-aholic like myself, plus who wouldn't want sent tea in the post?! 

Whilst sipping my cuppa I like to light some candles and since it is the festive season I am currently burning a Kiss Air Candle*, in the scent Christmas Tree. This scent is incredible and makes my room smells so fresh and festive! These candles last such a long time too, you definitely get your value for money. 

I have my cuppa and candles lit what now? A good old soak in the tub. I like to relax in the bath with some products, at the moment I am using the Natural Clay Facial Mask by Maple Holistics*. This mask really helps absorb and removes any impurities from my skin, as well as adds a nice healthy glow. This little pot has lasted me a good few month now, a little goes a long way! If I am feeling really down I like to add some tan to my body, just to brighten up my colour. So I exfoliate my skin with the Soap&Glory Breakfast Scrub and then apply my Dove Dermaspa Body Lotion* to add a pop of colour and glow to my skin. This product really does add a nice healthy glow to my skin and instantly helps boost my mood, weird huh?

If I have to go out I like to wear makeup that'll really help boost my mood, so of course a classic red is a must. I tend to wear my Chanel Hydrating Lipstick* and this instantly brightens my whole face. I do think makeup can help cheer your mood up and get you feeling motivated. As well as this I like to use a good highlighter to match my healthy glowing tan. I am currently using the No.7 Highlighting Stick and this gives my skin amazing thick coverage which is perfect to use in winter for that photograph shine. 

What are your 'down in the dump' pick me ups??

  1. This was such a lovely post to read. When I am down in the dumps, I like to do as many productive things as possible and of course tea is a must. I am definitely checking out Teatime. I always reach for my high end products when I feel a bit crap it instantly lifts my spirits. Chanel will do that to a girl, great post.

  3. I agree with you when it comes to a good red lipstick. When I feel my worst, a red lip puts me in a good mood!

  5. These suggestions are great! My friend recently suggested that I go for a shower whenever I feel a bit crap so I've started doing that. Then I use my fave l"Occitane almond shower oil which makes me feel a bit fancy and relaxed. I also like to have a hot drink and sit at my desk and try to do something productive. Basically anything that makes me feel less like I'm wasting my life, haha.

    1. I do think using fancier products can cheer you up especially if you don't use them all the time. I know I am not much of wallowing in bed I have to be doing something otherwise I will feel worse!

  6. I really enjoyed reading this post, I love the sound of the teas. I love my tea in the morning to wake me up but I have been debating trying something a bit different, a bit more healthy and these really sound great.

  9. Love this post, there's nothing better than a good cuppa when your feeling bit blue. I also find bubble bath, a good book and music can sort me right out. xxx
