Today I’m linking up with Becky over at Olives ‘n’ Wine to do something that we should ALL do once in a while… treat ourselves! Her philosophy is“treat yourself well and treat yourself often so that you will become the best you possible and in turn be your best for others in your life!” Isn’t that such a beautiful way to approach life?
Since finishing work over a week ago, I’ve being spending a lot of time by myself and on myself. I’ve been treating myself by doing things that make me happy from the inside out, starting with what I put into my body. Back in May I ate vegan for an entire week where my diet consisted of 90% fruit & vegetables. I have never felt more energised and happier in myself. So I’ve made the effort to get back into conscious eating, and it really hasn’t been that difficult. I eat a predominantly plant based diet anyway, but I do love how much I look forward to my green smoothie every morning again!
“What did Dom Perignon say to fellow monks after he invented champagne? … Come quickly, I am tasting the stars.” – John Green, The Fault In Our Stars
“I only drink Champagne on two occasions, when I am in love and when I am not” – Coco Chanel
I have to agree with Dom & Coco on this one. There is a time for champagne, and that time is always and whenever! My mum surprised me with champagne to celebrate a recent achievement of mine. I only had the one glass but it was buttery, dry, sparkling goodness! Champagne is always a delicious treat, no matter what the occasion!
Yesterday I had one of those moments where I was so overwhelmed with everything I had to do, that I just did none of it and watched the Princess and the Frog instead. Disney always has a calming effect on me and it makes my heart siiiiiiing 🙂 I treated myself by ignoring my responsibilities and embracing my inner child (not advisable if you have a strict deadline to meet!)
And finally today I treated myself to new headphones. The black and white picture doesn’t do them justice as they are bright PINK. I love them! I’ve been using the earphones that came with my iPhone for ages, so I feel like I’m giving my ears a cushiony treat that sounds amazing!
What have you treated yourself to so far this week?
