self love & smelling the roses

February can be a difficult month, especially if you are in the middle of a blistering winter.  With all the talk of Valentine's Day, it would be appropriate to indulge the idea of treating yourself to a little love and kindness. 

It is important to not only be compassionate to others, but also be compassionate to yourself.  What do you need to add a little brightness into your days?  Imagine what you would do for your very best friend or partner when they need a little pick me up.  Give yourself some quality time.  Journaling is a fantastic way to get in touch with yourself in the present moment.

Add some brilliance into your life and home with splashes of vibrant colours.  Buy fresh flowers and arrange them in your finest crystal glasses and dishes for a delightful display that will make you smile each time you pass them.  Fill your fridge and counter tops with delicious seasonal fruit and enjoy a Sunday morning mimosa with brunch.
Wishing you a pleasant February filled with radiance!  Here are a few lovely links:
