Treating Yourself In 2018

What better excuse to treat yourself than it being a brand new year? A lot of people may decide to go on spending bans or simply try and better their spending habits while others may be thinking it might be a good idea to de-clutter and be out with the old and in with the new. I for one am more for the latter for sure, I just can’t resist treating myself – after all, I deserve it right? That’s what I tell myself anyway…

One luxury brand that has got your back is L’Occitane and have you seen their latest collaboration with Rifle Paper Co.? It’s simply to die for and I’m definitely lusting after it at the minute. The packaging is so gorgeous and you just know the products inside will be too. Here is a link to some of their gift sets, after all gift sets are the best way to try out more products for less and usually the packaging is extra cute too!

Another brand I like to reach for lately when I’m thinking of treating myself has got to be Lush. A good bath bomb, bubble bar or shower gel is the perfect little treat for a nice little pamper evening to relax and have some time to yourself. They recently just brought back their Valentine’s Day collection which is always to die for, the unicorn horn is definitely a favourite of mine and this year it’s back and in new colours! It’s so pretty.

And finally one last bit of inspiration for treating yourself has got to be Charlotte Tilbury if you’re into makeup. It might be a little more on the expensive side but honestly, buy yourself a lipstick and tell me you regret it! You will not regret your decision and there are so many gorgeous bits to choose from. The stunning gold packaging just makes everything that little bit more luxurious and you will feel like a queen whilst putting on your lipstick. Trust me, you deserve it!

What brands do you reach for when treating yourself?

    It’s good to treat yourself. I love to pick up some Lush bits for a little treat too. I hadn’t heard of the L’Occitane collaboration with Rifle paper, I’ll have to have a look at that!

    It’s so important to treat yourself. Sadly I do too much treating! So I’m only a ‘no buy unless it’s a replacement, a gift or for the wedding’ mission at the moment. It’s not going to last! Xx

      Restricting yourself is so hard, after all we work so hard we deserve it! (that’s my view anyway) But I hope you succeed in your mission! xx

    It’s so important to treat yourself, you have to love yourself as well as the people around you loving you back. I always treat myself with new makeup or going to get my nails done. Even a spa day at home is a great time for me to relax.

      I definitely agree, we’re always working hard, we deserve a treat whether it be big or small! At home pampers are always a fab option too x

    I’m definitely treating myself with a couple of ABH lipsticks – they were down to £5 instead of £18! I had to haha Xx

    I think it’s important to make yourself a priority in your life, and treating yourself can be great. I would love to try Charlotte Tilbury this year.
