How to show yourself some love this Valentines Day  - Self care
Valentines Day isn't just about romantic love, it's about the love of a friend, the love of a family member, the love of a child and their mother, self love - love is all around

Self Care and Self Love are so important, we all know it but sometimes it can be hard to put the effort in and take time out just for yourself. Unfortunately when you don't make the time for you, burnout, stress and exhaustion are often a result. 

There's no better time to show yourself some love, make some effort to care for yourself than Valentines Day. It's a great excuse to indulge in a little self care, to slow down and enjoy your own company. Do things you enjoy - you deserve it!

So I'm sharing a few ways you can show yourself some love this Valentines Day!

self care ideas for valentines day

Take the day slowly

Not every day needs to be constant, on the go from the second you open your eyes - particularly if you aren't exactly eased awake by a blaring alarm clock either! Wake up slowly, stretch your body, try some light morning yoga and make your favourite morning drink. You don't always have to rush, take it slow, embrace the easier mornings and appreciate all that you have. 


Valentines Day is a fab time to fill in your journal, or even just write a little note to yourself. If you don't fancy that just take a few minutes and have a think about just how incredible you are.

- what is your favourite thing about yourself?
- what is your favourite part of your body?
- what do you enjoy doing on your own?
- what is your biggest dream?
- what is your favourite meal/snack you could whip up, right now?
- what gives you energy?
- what do other people love about you?
- what amazing things have you accomplished in your life so far?

Eat something delicious

Your favourite meal, an amazingly delicious snack, your go-to takeaway or even your favourite chocolate bar. Treat and indulge yourself. 

Put the effort in

Unless you fancy prancing around in your pyjamas all day (totally acceptable too btw!), why not put a little effort in and make yourself look and feel good. Try a new makeup look, wear that gorgeous dress you put away for a "special occasion", give that hair curler another whirl. Whatever you fancy, just have fun with!


Laughter is the best thing ever. Laughter decreases stress, increases oxygen intake, releases endorphins and generally just makes you feel amazing! "Laughter is the best medicine" is actually true because it offers you amazing health and wellbeing benefits!
So watch a funny movie, spend time with others who get your sense of humour and make you laugh till your stomach aches. 

If you only do one of these ideas today, make it this one. 

Have a soak

There's nothing better than a good bath to relax your body and soothe your muscles. Have a proper fancy, all out pampering bath if you fancy it. Use your best products that you put away for a special day - every day is a special day! Treat yourself! Fill the tub with bubbles, bring a drink and a snack - a book too maybe? Whatever you like, but I want you to really make this bath a good one!

self care ideas for valentines day

Do something you enjoy

Make an effort to do something you enjoy today. Everyone enjoys something! Do you have any particular hobbies? Painting? Knitting? Running? Writing? Cleaning? Gardening? Gaming? There's a million different things you could do, and if you aren't sure what you enjoy - why not give a few activities a go and see what takes your fancy, you might discover a whole new hobby you love!

Feel love

What makes you feel loved? Does your partner? Your friends? Your parents? Your children? Everyone wants to feel love from another person - so make an effort today to spend time with those who make you feel like you are the most important person to them. Make sure you show them just how important and loved they are too! 

I hope you have an amazing Valentines Day, make sure you fill up your cup!

7 Ways To Help You Feel Like You Again, After Children
Becoming a mum changes your life, there's no doubt about that. It's one of the most life changing experiences that you can go through. You go from being independent, just having yourself to take care of, then suddenly being responsible for a whole new life. It's sets us up on a completely different pathway. It can make you feel like you are losing part of your identity, you no longer feel like you anymore. Or at least the you you once were. It's so important as a mum that you have a strong sense of self, of who you are. Even if it's not the you that you used to be. Yes it might be a drastic change, but it's an amazing one. I'm sharing a few ways to help you feel like you again, after having children.

It might feel like your identity has been forgotten somewhere along the way, that you have lost yourself. But trust me, you're still in there. You just need to reignite that feeling, rediscover the person inside. 

Catch Up With Old Friends Or Make New Ones
Meet up with some of your old friends for a coffee, invite them over for a catch up. This is definitely something that works. I don't know if it's just me, but whenever I see my old friends, even if I haven't seen them for a good few years it doesn't feel like that. It doesn't feel like any time has passed. You should even try to make some new mummy friends. New friends who you'll have things in common with, and you can sit down with a coffee and a cake together and discuss motherhood, and everything that comes with it. While it's fantastic to keep in touch with your old friends, it's great to make new, like minded friends like you too. Visit a parent & baby group, get chatting to parents at the park. Whatever works for you. 

Do Things Just For You
I know I find it hard to do things just for me sometimes, but it's important. You need to take care of yourself and you deserve to do things just for your own fulfilment now and then. Remind yourself that you are 'not just a mum'. Treat yourself, do something you love doing, something that makes you happy and feel good. Learn something new, apply for a job, go out for the afternoon. Everyone deserves a break now & then.

7 Ways To Help You Feel Like You Again, After Children

Ask For Help
Ahh the classic piece of advice new mums are always given. 'If you need help, ask for it', but the truth is we don't want to. We don't want to ask for help or advice because we will feel like a bit of a disappointment if we cannot cope alone. This is such rubbish. Everyone needs help sometimes, everyone deserves help sometimes. There's no shame in asking for it, especially when you are a new mum. It can be overwhelming, and people are more often than not so willing to help out. Take advantage of an extra pair of hands!

Do Something Spontaneous
When was the last time you were spontaneous? Yes it's pretty tricky to do something on the spur of moment when you have kids, because of course you don't just have yourself to think about. But it's still possible. Hire a babysitter, or ask a family member and go on a spontaneous date night! Book a last minute holiday, pack up and go on a road trip or even just go for it and book yourself in to have that hair cut you've wanted for months. 

Do Things By Yourself
As a mum, It can be hard to find time just to yourself. There's always something you should be doing. But finding that time just for you is so important. We tend to feel a bit guilty when we take time out for ourselves, because there's always something else we could be doing, something to tick off that never ending checklist but truth is, some things can wait. Taking care of yourself is something we should be doing - so add it to that checklist! (and not right at the bottom!). Make the time to do things by yourself. When your parents are looking are your little ones, when they're at nursery, or school. Do something alone. Just by yourself. Go to a café, the cinema. Go on a long walk or snuggle on the sofa with a movie and popcorn. What ever you fancy, just spend some quality time with yourself!

7 Ways To Help You Feel Like You Again, After Children

Try Some Retail Therapy
When you first become a mum, your whole sense of style tends to just get thrown out the window. It's totally understandable! Comfort is key! But when your little ones get a bit older, you can spend a bit more time on your clothing choices.  Treat yourself to a new item of clothing, it'll make you feel and look amazing. 

Spend Time On Your Appearance
I get it, I totally get it. When you have children, it's so much harder to find the time to make yourself up like you used to. You might have discovered that you love more neutral, natural make up and that's perfectly fine! I tend to wear minimal make up in the day now, and just shove my hair in a mum bun! But every once in a while, spend a bit more time. Get your hair done, paint your nails. Pamper yourself. You're worth it.

It's not the fact that your identity has disappeared, or you have forgotten who you are. It's the fact that yes, becoming a mum is a huge, life changing thing. It's going to change you, but it doesn't mean you are not you anymore. It will add to who you were. You are different. But that's ok. 

You have changed but you are still you, and you are amazing.

Toxic Positivity And How To Avoid It
I'd like to think I'm generally a positive person. I try to see the good in everyday, notice the little things that make me happy. I like to try and promote positivity and good vibes, bring others up and brighten their day - but let's be honest here, no one can positive, and happy all the time. 

It's mentally and physically impossible to be happy all the time, and those who promote constant positivity are fake, and toxic. 

Sure I like to share and read inspirational quotes, share happy moments in my life, compliments others to hopefully brighten their day a bit - but that's not me, all day every day. Every one has days when they feel utterly awful, when nothing can cheer them up and they're really struggling - and shoving positivity or 'good vibes' down their throats is going to do far more harm than good.

Toxic Positivity And How To Avoid It

What is toxic positivity?

Toxic positivity is pretty much showing that you (or you are encouraging others to be) happy, upbeat and positive all the time. That's just not realistic, not true and not something to aspire to at all. 

It's suggesting that people shouldn't have negative emotions, that it's their fault if they can't cheer up or make the best of the situation. People are made to feel a huge range of emotions, from joy, and happiness to anxiousness or hopelessness - all are valid and very real emotions.

Positivity isn't always best, and not always appropriate. Sharing 'good vibes' wont help someone who is struggling and it wont magically make their problems go away. Toxic positivity is dangerous for us all, but especially with those who might struggle with physical or mental illness, or are going through a really hard time at the moment. 

Shoving inspirational quotes and pretty much telling them to 'cheer up' is a really bad move. Again, it's basically saying 'No, your feelings aren't valid. You need to lighten up". Often if people are struggling and looking for advice or support, they need real support. They need to be acknowledged and shown their negative feelings are valid, normal and that you are there for them. 

The same goes for yourself! It's absolutely possible to project toxic positivity onto yourself. Putting on this fake persona that everything is always good, you have no reason to feel upset or negative. You should be happy, so be happy. Making yourself feel this way, or telling yourself your feelings are stupid or invalid is just as bad as projecting into onto others. Just remember your feelings are always valid, and by hiding away the negative feelings you are making things worse for yourself.

Toxic Positivity And How To Avoid It

Examples of toxic positivity;

"Cheer up!"

"It's not as bad as it seems"

"Stop being so negative all the time"

"Smile! It's not that bad" 
(I absolutely detest this one. I have resting bitch face ok, and often people mistake that for me being miserable or sulking. I don't have to smile because you tell me I should mmkay)

"Just be positive"

"Look on the bright side"

"Be grateful for what you do have"

Just imagine you were in someone else's shoes for a minute. Imagine that person was having a really bad day, or something huge and traumatic has happened in their life. Or perhaps they're really struggling to get out out bed, struggling with awful depression. 

Then this awful, smiley, cheery person chimes in, telling them to SMILE, or telling them it's not that bad, it could be worse. Is that helpful? Will that help improve their situation, or make them instantly feel happier because you insisted they should feel that way? Absolutely not. 

Being positive without being toxic

As I mentioned above, I like to think I'm a pretty positive, happy person but that by no means means I'm constantly happy. That everything is always perfect in my world and I have absolutely no reason to feel sad, down or disheartened. Everyone feelings those feelings, we all all designed to feel and express a huge variety of emotions - no one is always happy. 

But still, (I'm going to say it again and again) whatever you feel - your feelings are absolutely real, and 100% valid. You're allowed to feel the way you are feeling and it's normal to feel all sorts of emotions all the time. 

I guess the main factor is, be positive while acknowledging and accepting negative feelings too.
Toxic Positivity And How To Avoid It

Avoiding toxic people

I guess when it comes to removing toxic people from your life, we always think of the people who hurt you, are cruel to you etc - but what about the people's whose lives seem so perfect, they seem so happy all the time, like nothing ever goes wrong in their lives, and you just wish, for one second that you were as happy and positive as they seem to be 24/7. The truth is, they're lying to you. 

Of course, that doesn't mean that you can be positive at all! Try not to let little things get you down to much, or at least not for longer than necessary. Remember all the wonderful things you do have in your life, how thankful you are for those things, what an amazing human being you actually are. Try not to worry too much about things that are out of your control, look after yourself always.

The trouble with social media nowadays, particularly if you are someone who uses it a lot, is that from a glance, it's pretty much paradise - well Instagram at least. Perfect homes, perfect families, perfect holidays, smiling faces, lots of money. IT'S A LIE. No one is perfect, no one has it all and no one is happy all the time - but that's the only side you'll see on the internet.

Toxic people come in all shapes and sizes, and some of the most toxic people you'll meet are those who make you feel, well, pretty worthless - probably without even trying. I've had to remove a few toxic people from social media because they were making me feel awful about myself! These perfect happy families who have it all, can do it all and have nothing negative to say about their lives at all - makes me feel mediocre at best. We all have our different strengths and weaknesses, we all have a huge range of emotions, it's normal!
And if there are people you follow who make you feel bad about yourself, remove them now. 

Delete/mute/block them on social media, remove them from your lives. If they're not making you feel good, they don't deserve to be in your life.

Homemade Rose Face Mask For Normal and Combination Skin

Homemade Face Mask For Normal/Combination Skin

When it comes to skincare and pampering, a good facemask is essential! Although it probably seems a lot less hassle to pop to the shop and purchase the first facemask you see - it's so much better for your skin, and your wallet to make your own!

Making your own facemask doesn't have to be complicated, and it definitely wont be pricey! You'll be able to ensure all the ingredients are natural and you'll know every ingredient in it unlike store bought products.  Natural products can do absolute wonders for your skin, while detoxing and moisturising your skin, removing impurities and unclogging pores. What's not to love about that?

I've already shared my absolute favourite facemask for dry and sensitive (and sunburnt!) skin, but today I'm sharing my go-to homemade mask for normal or combination skin.

Homemade Rose Face Mask For Normal and Combination Skin

Natural Ingredients

Did you know that roses have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties? Roses have been used in skin care for years and they can help reduce redness and moisturise your skin too. 

Rose can calm and soothe your skin, as well as reduce redness - so it's a fantastic product for acne prone, or oily skin. It helps to clean away impurities and dirt, while locking the moisture into your skin to keep your skin soft and supple.

Roses are also full of vitamins, to protect and hydrate your skin and due to the gorgeous scent of rose, it can even help you relax and brighten your mood too! They are really amazing plants. 

Honey has a wonderful array of beneficial properties for your skin (it's a regular ingredient I use for homemade skincare products!). Honey is antibacterial, and anti-septic so it will really clean out your pores, remove dirt and bacteria and it can even treat acne. It's also moisturising and soothing - ideal for sore or dry skin. Plus Honey is full of antioxidants, so it'll help boost collagen production, nourish damaged skin and even fade scars!

Natural Yogurt
Natural yogurt has a huge range of skin care benefits too, many are similar to honey and rose but yogurt is best at soothing and cooling your skin. It'll help revitalise and hydrate your skin if it's feeling dry or sore. It's really just a huge moisturise boost for your skin - plus it can help fade blemishes and fine lines too. PLUS, it's antibacterial and anti fungal too. 

See, with all these fantastic ingredients, do you really want to go back to store bought facemasks?

How To Make Homemade Face Mask

This Rose face mask is really quick to put together. With just 4 ingredients, it'll only take about 10 minutes max. Plus, if you make a bigger batch, it can be popped into the fridge for up to a week!

You Will Need:
* 2 Tbs Natural Yogurt
* 2 Tbs Rosewater
* 3 Tbs Manuka or Raw Honey
* A handful of rose petals

The cheapest, most basic natural yogurt will work for this face mask! (Just ensure it's flavour free, it'll usually be about 50p) You can easily purchase natural rose water, or you could make your own even easier, pick a few rose petals from the garden and you're nearly there!

Lastly, you'll want to use Manuka or raw honey, as the basic, cheapest store bought honey's are usually overflowing with sugar - look for something a little more natural. HUGE bonus if you can purchase a jar of local honey. 

1. First things first, you'll want to wash the rose petals with cold water. Allow them to soak for a few minutes to wash off any bugs or dirt. While the rose petals are soaking, you can mix up the rosewater, honey and yogurt in a bowl.

2. Once the rose petals have finished soaking, you can crush or rip them up and add them to the mixture. 

3. Either using a pestle and mortar, or by popping it in the blender - combine all the ingredients well together. Using a blender does create a smoother face mask and therefore, easier to apply - but it's really up to you.

4. Using clean fingers, apply the mixture in gentle circular motion to your face, décolletage and neck. Be sure to avoid your eyes, nostrils and mouth.

5. Leave the mask to dry on your skin for about 15-20 minutes. You should feel the mask soaking into your skin, hydrating and tightening it almost immediately.

6. Rinse off the face mask using cool or warm water. I generally like to wash masks off with my hands and finish it off with a light scrub using a soft wash cloth.

7. Pat your skin dry and apply your normal moisturiser - and enjoy your radiant skin!

Have you ever made a DIY face mask before? 

I'd love to hear if you give this one a go!

25 Feel Good Films You Need To Watch
Picture this, you've made a comfy spot on the sofa, snuggled up with blankets, snacks and a hot drink - now just to find something to watch. You want something that'll brighten your mood, help get you out of the slump you're in - but with all the thousands of options on Disney Plus, Amazon, Netflix - it's just too much choice. Does this sound like you? Because this is regularly me.

So I wanted to share with you my absolute go-to list for feel good, happy movies. All these wonderful movies are not only entertaining, but they'll brighten your day from the get go. (And they're not all romcoms you'll be pleased to hear). So cozy up and take your pick!

25 Feel Good Films You Need To Watch

Big Fish

Big Fish is a lovely story. It's all very magical, mysterious, unusual and heart-warming. One of the best Tim Burton films out there, without the usual dark, grey theme. 

Singin' In The Rain

An absolute classic film! If you are a fan of musicals, yet you haven't watched this, where have you been? If you haven't watched Singin' In The Rain, you have to! It's one of those bucket list movies, films you have to watch in your life at least once. It's brilliant! The songs, the dancing, it's just the perfect amount of cheesy and I guarantee you'll be smiling after you watch it!

The Shawshank Redemption

An absolute must see film! It's not a cheesy film, nor is it particularly funny or romantic, it's just a genuinely great film! And the ending will make you feel everything. 

Notting Hill

Notting Hill is one of my absolute favourite romcoms. It's heartwarming, it's cheesy, it's hilarious. It's very British. You'll love it. 

About Time

Possibly, maybe just making it to the top of my favourite romcoms ever. About Time is a gorgeous, sweet, relatable film, with a unique twist!  You couldn't have picked a better cast for this lovely film, you really couldn't! It's charming, funny and with a great message too, it's not your typical romantic comedy that's for sure. 

The Pursuit Of Happyness

I honestly wasn't sure whether or not to put this on the list. Its not your average feel good film, and halfway through you might start to wonder why you are putting yourself through this! (Gotta be honest!) It's a beautiful story and one you don't want to miss, I promise you. Just stick it out until the end. 

The Bucket List

Another happy sad film, but such a good one too. I mean, with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson in the leading roles, it's bound to be amazing right? It's a lovely film, all about friendship, life and making the most of each and every day. 

25 Feel Good Films You Need To Watch

Crazy, Stupid, Love

Crazy, Stupid, Love is another one of my ultimate favourite romcoms (partly because the cast is amazing!) It's funny, it's relatable, it's touching and all the characters have strong onscreen chemistry. It's a little bit of everything you want to see in a good movie. Definitely worth a watch.

Bridget Jones' Diary

If you haven't watched Bridget Jones before, there's no time like the present! With many fun characters, relatable moments, laughable moments and hilarious quotable scenes you can't help but love it!

The Blind Side

The Blind Side is based on the amazing true story of footballer Michael Oher and the Tuohy family. Its such a heartwarming film and each actor really nails the role they are playing. Anyone and everyone can relate to this film, and you really feel connected to the characters. A lovely film that'll make you want to snuggle your family just that little bit more. 

Love Actually

I love Love Actually and I have loved it since the first time I watched it! It's a modern classic Christmas film! The story lines are cheesy, the cast is full of fantastic, talented actors and it really is the perfect pick me up film. Its not too serious, it's not meant to be! It's lighthearted and fun, everything a feel good film should be! 

The Breakfast Club

One of my absolute favourite films! The Breakfast Club is a very typical 80s film, with most of the members of the 80s Brat Pack. It's a fab little movie that really captures the teenager years of our life, how crazy and intense that time was. How we were all forced to be put into specific groups, defined by who we would hang around with and being forced into metaphorical boxes. 

School Of Rock

Literally watched this film earlier today! I remember repeatedly watching it at my cousins house when it was first out, its a fantastic film. If you want a silly, happy, feel good film - this is it. I honestly wish there were more movies out there like this one. It's funny, it's feel good, and it's family friendly too, without being childish - a really good film, definitely worth a watch. 

The Lion King

Me, being a huge Disney fan obviously had to include at least one in this list. I know not every one enjoys the classic Disney films, but you gotta admit, there's something special about them! The Lion King is such an iconic movie, it somehow gets better with age or the more you watch it! It's sweet, it's sad, it's funny, it's everything you want in a Disney film, everything you need in a feel good film! 

Mrs Doubtfire

The film shares a wonderful, heartwarming message, showing that love is everywhere, even when you can't be with those you love. It's a movie that will stand the test of time and Robin Williams is just perfect in it. His classic one liners, impressions and jokes will keep you laughing throughout. Such a lovely, funny film for the whole family to enjoy. 

The Terminal

Its just a nice film to watch. It's cute, simple but it really makes you feel sorry for the main character. The humour is spot on, the acting is amazing and Tom Hanks' character is just the sweetest, kindest person. There's nothing not to like about this film at all. It's a truly lovely watch. 

Bruce Almighty

I remember being in hysterics the first time I watched it!  It's a well made film, a nice, easy to watch story and although it's about God it's not preachy nor is it offensive, it's just silly! Definitely one to watch if you need a good laugh! 


I'm sorry, but you can't not like Shrek. You just can't, it's physically impossible. I've watched it more times than I can count, and I quote the movie on a regular basis, it's just the best. 

25 Feel Good Films You Need To Watch

About A Boy

It's a heartwarming film, filled with love while tackling real life issues such as bullying and depression. It's an entertaining film, it's sweet, it's relatable and it's genuinely lovely to watch, every scene is spot on and the perfect combination of comedy and seriousness. 


If you like a good romcom, this is like the BEST romcom. It's funny, it's relatable, it's sweet. Sure, it's predictable but in this case that's perfectly OK because throughout the film you warm towards both characters and their inevitable romance. You get what you expect with this film and you'll feel happier for it! 

Yes Man

Yes Man has a fun story with lots of hilarious moments along the way. It's inspiring, cheesy, funny and relatable all at the same time. Just a good movie! 


Matilda is such a lovely, iconic family friendly film. Its one of my favourite Roald Dahl stories, and the film is a close adaptation. It's a happy film, it's quirky, silly and wholesome. Everyone in your family will love it, I guarantee. 


It's a fantastic film because it really speaks to your inner child.This film not only speaks to your inner child, but it also reminds us as adults, the importance of having fun and living in the moment. It's a heartwarming, joyful and optimistic movie. I absolutely guarantee you'll love it. 


It's such a colourful, vibrant film. With eccentric characters, full of funny, heartwarming and sad moments that will warm your heart and deeply move you. Its not your basic Disney film, it's so so much more. 

Little Miss Sunshine

It's a charming film, it's pure and honest. You'll really feel for the main character as she goes through the struggles to get into the pageant, but she's amazing. You'll feel so connected to each and every character. This film is unusual, yet relatable. It's happy, yet sad and it'll make you laugh until you cry. You need this movie in your life. 

Have you watched any of these?
