Spring Self Care Ideas

Spring is here! 🌸 The warmer weather is (hopefully) arriving, the days are getting longer, and our local parks are full of beautiful blooms. I honestly can’t wait to go on some Springtime walks very soon! But while it’s certainly one of my favourite times of year, my self care is always a little lapse in the Spring. Perhaps it’s because the days feel a little less cosy? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Although, we do get to enjoy beautiful sunsets like this. ⬆️⬆️ This year however, I’m going to be focusing on myself a little more, and revamping my own self care routine […]

Out of the four seasons, Summer is my least favourite. It’s hot, sweaty and can be very uncomfortable to sleep. I also burn very easily (even in overcast English weather) which doesn’t help my ill feelings towards the Summer season either!
