Feel Great Hack Numero Uno - Surprise Shopping!

What better way to remind yourself you have an inner great friend rooting for you throughout the month than surprise shopping? This is my favourite! I knew I needed to share with you. Because it genuinely helps.

Rules are simple, Order, try your best not to check the item or delivery dates when checking the email updates after the confirmation ones (hiding the delivery date with your hand) and be surprised and excited when they arrive. Preparing little presents to arrive throughout the month with different delivery dates to still surprise yourself, is a great pick you up. If one happens to arrive when you're having the worst day, its the perfect reminder from your inner friend that shes there, rooting for you. And trust me, the rest of your cosy evening you will feel fabulous as you know you have that journal or nail polish and hair mask coming your way or to the people you love. And I promise you don't need to spend much when doing this, even the little things can remind and surprise you.

Spa Bath - Its kind of exciting taking a moment to see how you can introduce new spontaneous ways to make your bath time like your at a 5* spa with the treasure of it being just you, so drop that towel for yourself with determination. For you are a godess. Whatever taking a slide back to think what your desired bath means to you. Whether its cucumber for your eyes, lighting incenses or candles, investing in a towel robe or bath tray, that self care book you've had stored away. Box of chocolates. Or home made canapes (or vegetarian chicken nuggets and a cosmo as were being real here). I once even tried snorkels. Its Your bath, your rules. Spicing it up and taking that moment to step back and think, how can I make this an event for myself, what do I like, whats my way today? Making it adventure for yourself, makes it that more special.

Listening to your higher self -

Listen to yourself, empower your voice. Organising those thoughts List-

Writing a list of areas you would like to feel more stability, then responding to that as your inner friend, hyping her up.

Example - Worry feeling- "I worry about time but desperately feel I need rest"

Inner friend- "I hear you, please know time is a number, you're capable of powerful things. You owe it to yourself to rest, take the time you need and prepare. When you've had that rest,you'll rise back up because you've had that time to rest, prepare and find clarity that you deserve."


If there is one tip I advise the most, is compassionate therapy (and to pray of course). It is a true light bulb moment and I only learned techniques for this years after therapy, years of chatting my life away to strangers until then. It was the game changer. The most life changing. Once learning compassionate therapy honestly my whole attitude toward self care changed and sparked an excitement in me. I hope I can excite you to do the same.

Making a tradition with yourself.

Having your personal staple, something you celebrate with yourself and can carry with you. And trust me the opportunities for this are endless, there are many traditions you can have with yourself now and in the future, they are limitless. Having and creating traditions with yourself are so sacred and can truly make you feel at home anywhere. Whether its during the holidays, your cosy evenings, weekends whatever your tradition is or will be, sounds brilliant. Thank you to my Nan that without knowing installed my tradition in me, magazines and sweets being mine. Of course back then it was the ones with the earring stickers and spot the difference. But growing up I imagined in my adulthood living like a bratz doll and carrying this tradition to every fashion capital I attend. Honestly carrying this tradition through and over a decade later, not much has changed there. A gossip and fashion magazine of my choice and my favourite sweets never fails to remind me the importance of listening and believing in myself. To treasure this life we've been given.
