Sometimes you just have to make some time for yourself, clear some space in your diary, and focus on yourself for once. Instead of red roses, how about something that will last a little longer? Our tie dye hoodie in red and pink GOTS certified organic cotton will bring some brightness and warmth to your February. Or how about a pair of cheeky red and pink shorts, or a pair of red tie dye sweatpants, perfect for an early morning run, guaranteed to blow the cobwebs away before the day begins.
As we know, we need to look after ourselves right now, not just ensuring we are getting some fresh air, exercise and eating as healthily as we can, but making sure we keep our spirits up. Red is related to ambition, passion, vitality. It’s a colour that will make you feel alive, even on the darkest of days. If that’s all a bit too much for you right now, a gentler shade of pale pink will have a calming effect, and perhaps put you in the mood for romance.
As well as seeing how a splash of colour can change your mood you might also want to treat yourself to something new to wear for bedtime. Our range of sleepwear will make you feel ready for a good night’s sleep – vital for good health and wellbeing in these wintry, unsettled days. From our brushed organic cotton fleece top and sweatpants, the cuddliest of bedfellows, to our cotton pyjamas with neat contrasting piping or our soft, dusky pink Tencel midi dress, for a more sensuous nighttime look, we have just the thing, whatever your nocturnal mood.
Ways to get in the mood for some #selflove this Valentine’s Day
♥ Watch In The Mood for Love by Wong Kar-wai, this most languid of films is perfect for an evening in front of the box, a gorgeous visual treat, with dreamy music, too.
♥ It’s Chinese New Year on February 12. The Year of the Ox. Check out your horoscope for the year and treat yourself to a special Chinese takeaway to celebrate.
♥Indulge in a classic romance and spend the weekend immersed in it. We recommend Daphne du Maurier’s swashbuckling mystery The Frenchman’s Creek. You won’t be able to stop reading it. Make a weekend of it with the recent remake of the author’s best known novel, Rebecca starring Lily James (currently streaming on Netflix).
♥ Invest in some fine chocolates. Independent chocolatier Paul A. Young has the most excellent champagne truffles. Or why not make your own? Try this recipe for Prosecco truffles . Just don’t eat them all in one go.
♥ And if you really need a duvet day, why not binge on the entire eight episodes of Bridgerton from beginning to end. If you’ve already watched it, you might want to read all eight novels by Julia Quinn. See the order to read them in here.
