By mid-afternoon on a Sunday the Monday blues set in. It’s cold, and quite frankly I would quite like to spend the next four months snuggled under my Christmas themed duvet set in a onesie with a fluffy tail on the back. But alas the world of work calls, so I thought of a few pick me ups I’ll be giving a go tonight to try and put a glamourous spring back into my step. What Monday blues, eh?
First stop, a boiling hot bubbly bath filled to the brim with whatever bathtime treat I’ve got hanging around (see last weekends post for that). Then it’s time to slather on a silky smooth moisturiser and after giving the This Works Deep Sleep Dream Cream* a go, I’ve moved onto the Skin Deep Youth Elixir*. I love a good dose of nourishment fresh out of the bath – I whip on my pyjamas (*ahem* onesie)Â straight Â after to lock in the moisturise. A nice blow-dry will also be sure to make you feel like one pampered princess on Monday morn. Two products I’ve been incorporating into my routine are the Kevin Murphy Anti Gravity Oil Free Volumiser, which does exactly what it says on the tin and the Living Proof Weightless Styling Spray* which helps keep my elbow-aching inducing blow dried locks in place.
You know I adore a good face mask and my flavour of the month is the Clark’s Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask*. I’ve found this to work wonders on my congested chin (luverly), but for a much cheaper alternative, give the Origins Clear Improvements one a chance.Â Finally – who doesn’t love a glitter nail? You? Get out! A well placed digit of glimmer goodness gives you something to stare at on the bustling sardine-packed tube tomorrow. I shunned my usual flecked polishes for a glitter nail on crack this week – the CiatÃ© Sequin Manicure in Tutu*. A dish of chunky silver, red and pink particles that you roll you nail in to achieve the ultimate ring finger accent.Â But beware, you will be finding glitter particles in some strange places for the next week (I found a piece under my armpit, don’t ask).
Right I’m off to turn my frown upside with my Monday morning transforming routine. Just might need to have the hoover on standby for that glitter nail…
