Festive Self Care

AD – This post is sponsored post and contains affiliate links.

This time of year can be really stressful, which is why it is so important to take time out for some self care for yourself. Self care is something that is unique to you but will ultimately help you to unwind and reset your body and mind. I thought I’d put together some ideas of self care to give you some inspiration of what you could do this month.

Before I get onto the list, I thought I’d share one of my favourite self care options I like to do during the festive season which is to make my home and car smell lovely. I try to light candles everyday so that the scent drifts around my home. In terms of making the car smell lovely, I like to use Christmas scented hanging air fresheners. In the past, I’ve found it difficult to find one that will last but this is where Carfume comes in.

Festive self care option - Carfume Christmas scent.

  2. I have never heard of Carfume, but I love the idea! A nice scent makes any ride more enjoyable. I love to dance like no one is watching when I need to unwind. Tea and cookies is also perfect. šŸ™‚
