Beating those Winter Blues!

Thank you so much, Kay, for inspiring me to think of happy things when the Winter blues set in. It's the perfect way to shake them off! I love Kay's happy list & I would love you all to go and read it - I think dancing wildly around the living room to 80's classics sounds perfect!

Spring is just around the corner, yet it feels so far away. I'm guilty of spending gloomy winter days feeling super sleepy with a metaphorical grey cloud sitting just above my head following me everywhere I go. And you know what? Sometimes those days are okay. Sometimes it's okay to feel a little sad. But most of the time that grey cloud needs to be shaken off, or at the very least, even the smallest ray of sunshine needs to be there too!

How are you shaking off those winter blues? I would love to know because maybe I can start doing them too!
xoxo


P.S. Which would you like to see first, a few new purchases or my January favourites?

  2. I can't wait for spring! The grey weather feels very uninspiring, though sometimes I find inspiration in the rain haha. Using bright colors definitely lifts my mood up! :)

  4. Watching the sun rise - it is such a simple thing but it really does make you feel as though once the new day arrives anything is possible :-) Love your photo too!

  5. I am soooo glad you did this Jennie! I love your happy things, especially seeing the sun rise, I'd forgotten how great that can be! Also thank you for the gorgeous mention, that was so sweet of you! :) Now choices choices, I don't know which I'd like to see first a few new purchases or January favourites. I know both posts will be fab (as always) so I would be more than happy to see either first! x

  9. I'm guilty of sitting in bed with a cup of tea, listening to Fionn Regan and feeling sorry for myself. You're right, I definitely need to shake off the winter blues and DO something! Thanks Jennie :) xx

  24. These are all so adorable! January seems to be a bit of a depressing month for everyone, so this is well needed.
    I wanna see your first January purchase!

  26. This is a lovely post :) We all need a little extra help getting through these cold months! I'm just enjoying the fact that it gets light a bit earlier and dark a bit later, dark days really get me down. Bright lipsticks definitely help me :) Is that the Lee Rosy's in Nottingham? I love that tea shop! xx

  32. Sorry, I'm about to get all sappy but thank you for always posting such sweet things. You don't know who could be reading your blog and what they may be going through and a simple thing like a positive blog post may really make someone smile. I enjoy the occasional lifestyle/personal posts as much as your beauty posts xx
