Pamper Away the Autumn Blues

Don't get me wrong, I really like autumn! A/W fashion is just gorgeous, it's the season of my birthday and autumn finally gives you an excuse to snuggle up in front of the TV doing absolutely nothing but sipping tea. Nevertheless it kind of depresses me when it gets dark so early in the day so I definitely don't enjoy the time change. Luckily enough there is something we can do against this autumn blues: pampering ourselves! Probably the first thing that comes to your mind is taking a long bath, which is absolutely gorgeous, no doubt! However there's so much more you can do to make beauty work for your mood. It can start with a bright lipstick, either a gorgeous autumnal shade like plum, or a flashy pink you normally just use in summer. Especially if autumn depresses you because you miss summer, it can be helpful to stick to your aestival beauty rituals. For example last week I went to a beauty salon to get a pedicure done and even though I won't be showing my feet for months, I did it for myself and it gave me a feeling of inner beauty.
So whenever you're feeling a bit down these days, think of something you can do for yourself, even if it's something you normally wouldn't consider in autumn or winter. It doesn't need to be expensive or fancy but a new eye shadow or a quick stop at your hairdresser can work miracles.
How do you pamper yourself during the colder days? Here are my favourite mood boosting beauty products of the moment:

  1. I don't really pamper myself with body products, but the thing that brightens up my dark fall evenings are definitely flavoured candles :)
    My dream would be to take a bubble bath surrounded by candles and a good book right next to me, but we don't have a bath tub, so I have to content myself with the candles and a very dry surrounding ;)

  5. Candles are completely decadent and such a treat. Especially when it's super cold outside and rainy.

  6. Pampering myself??? Oooh yes, I am always in for that!! And I always do that, because I was taught that you have to love yourself and make little things for yourself. Fancy body products, candles, good book I consider as a pamper, but my favorite is the hit bath with candles and music. Unfortunately, now I don't have a bath tube at home, only a shower, so I can't enjoy it anymore :(( but then I remember how good it used to be...oooh..too good :))
