As many of you know I’m trying to slow down and simplify my life. Part of this is about taking the time to appreciate the little luxuries which make every day special. There is a great saying ‘everyday may not be good, but there is something good in everyday’ (unfortunately I don’t know the original source) which I think encapsulates this idea perfectly. We need to be celebrating the good things in the day whether there are big or small.
It can be so easy to get caught up with the never-ending to-do list, the messy house or whatever else it is you need to do every day, that we forget to stop and appreciate the little luxuries. Whether it’s taking 5 minutes to enjoy a cup of coffee or stopping to admire the view.
It’s these little luxuries which bring a smile to my face. And whilst they are indulgent, they don’t have to blow the budget. In fact, the more attainable luxuries tend to be the most enjoyable (although that doesn’t mean I’ll turn down a 5-star vacation).
Life’s little luxuries include buying fresh flowers for no reason other than they look pretty. Pulling on a soft cashmere jumper and freshly painted nails (preferably red nails).
Lighting your favourite scented candle and snuggling under a blanket on a cold night add a hot chocolate for the perfect Hygge evening. Climbing into bed with fresh clean sheets at the end of the day
Pouring yourself a glass of wine after a long day and taking the time to enjoy every sip. Enjoying a long hot relaxing bath and pampering yourself. Having a lie in on a weekend and not feeling guilty about it.
It’s these little things with help to bring the good into every day. And it’s these little luxuries and treats which I want to celebrate here on Tartan Brunette. I want to share life’s little luxuries with you whether it’s a great new clothing brand, amazing beauty products and all those things in life which make it wonderful.
Over the holidays, I started sharing more of the little things which elevate the every day on my Instagram. Instagram is the perfect place for sharing tiny little indulgences which make your day extra special. I’d love it if you followed me over there and share how you find the good in every day.
And if you’re looking for more ways to celebrate the little luxuries then I have a little luxuries board on Pinterest. Which I’ll be updating with everything which brings the good to every day.
