So I've mentioned in the past how my skin care regime isn't exactly a refined skill of mine, in fact it's pretty much non-existent most of the time. Occasionally I'll slap on some moisturiser and be done with it, but even then it's a toss-up over whether or not I'll make the effort to do anything at all before I go to bed.
To me self love is essentially caring about your own well being and feeling happy about yourself in general. As Valentine's Day is this hugely marketed time where love for other people is a key focus, I thought why not take the opportunity to spend the day celebrating ourselves rather than other people. With everyday life for a lot of us being about caring for others such as; children, families, friends and partners etc. Taking one day out of the year to be selfish and show yourself some self love really isn't a bad thing. In my opinion, it's the furthest thing from bad.
Like everyone else, for me January is a time where you have no money because Christmas has cleaned you out and payday seems so far away. So it's unusual for me to buy anything for myself within this time. I mean, after Christmas presents, there shouldn't be anything else I want right? But this year I surprised everyone by treating myself to a few things, so here are my January buys.
