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.
