So, I wanted to upload this post to firstly hopefully help others, but also as a little reminder to myself when things get tough.
We all have down days. We all experience times when you sit down and just thing ‘F*** it’. ‘I can’t be bothered’. ‘I don’t want to’. Its natural. We’re only human. But what is really important to remember is that it is just a phase. It will pass. You will feel okay when that dreaded meeting at work is over or that homework has been handed in or when your boyfriend texts you apologising for the argument.
I thought I’d write down my tips on how to feel happier. How to make that phase shorter. How to get the motivation to sit up and say ‘Right, come on. You can do it’.
So, whilst in London a few weekends ago I dragged Taylor to Oxford Street with the intention of getting one thing – a DIY Birchbox from Selfridges.
I’ve always been a fan of beauty boxes and made the difficult decision over a year and a half ago to subscribe to Glossybox. I chose Glossybox originally as I thought it had more brands that I liked, and I thought their website was really girly, yet clean and minimalistic. I’d heard of Birchbox and known people that had been subscribed in the past, yet a gut instinct meant I chose not to go with them.
However, now having a little more disposable income, and falling in love with my monthly Glossybox, I had been thinking about getting another monthly box of some sort. That is when my Instagram became flooded with pictures of Birchbox at Selfridges. A DIY beauty box? As in, YOU pick the samples?! Sold!
