Five Ways To Treat Yourself This Payday

Five Ways To Treat Yourself This Payday

October has felt like a long month – well, this whole year has felt pretty long hasn’t it! But when payday comes around, we love treating ourselves to a little something special, that we’ve had our eye on for the past few weeks, to make things a little better. 

These are five of the things we’re tempted to treat ourselves to this payday… 

1. Relax With The Help Of A ‘Bed Of Nails’

Working from home, hunched over a table or slouching on the sofa, is never going to be good for our backs. Plus, with our homes now our offices too, it’s become increasingly harder to switch off after a day of work. Swedish brand Bed of Nails however, has come up with an effective solution to helping us relax. Just 20 minutes laying on this acupuncture mat – originally used by Indian mystics in the practice of healing and meditation – before bed will have a whole host of benefits including helping with sleeplessness and reducing stress. 

2. Lift Your Mood With A SAD Lamp 

It’s time to say goodbye to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) symptoms, such as tiredness, over-eating and a lack of energy and motivation. A daily dose of light therapy from a Vitamin L SAD lamp can make up for winter’s lack of sunshine and make a big difference to winter blues. The bright light can lift your mood, boost your alertness and help you to feel more energised – it’s the natural way to improve your general well-being!

3. Flowers To Brighten Up Your ‘Home’ Office 

We’re spending so much time at home that it makes sense to brighten up our interiors a little to keep a smile on our faces. Buying a bunch of flowers is a great way to add some colour into your home, but unfortunately these don’t ever last much longer than a week. Which is exactly why we’re loving dried flower bouquets. Perfect for all seasons, these flowers can last around a year and don’t have to ever be watered. Looking like you’re green fingered has never been easier! 

4. A Cosy Winter Coat 

The temperature has definitely dropped and our summer clothes are quickly getting packed away for the rest of the year. This means we’re all in need of warmer layers – and a cosy winter coat is a must! This season has brought lots of new styles to the shops, but we’re loving big puffer coats and woven shackets the most!

5. Pamper Yourself With A GLOSSYBOX Subscription  

If you’re not already a GLOSSYBOX subscriber, why not? Times are tough and a monthly delivery of the best beauty products is just what you need to put a smile on your face. And, if you know your bestie will love GLOSSYBOX too, you can always buy a gift subscription for them as well! Brighten their month (or multiple!) and make sure there’s no more Glossy envy!

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
