Happiness Boosts

Sometimes a little pick me up, in the form of a little indulgence or a little extravagance, is just what I need to raise my happiness levels.

Here are my current faves:

Listening To: Pandolly Podcast
The Times’ style columnist, Pandora Sykes, and Dolly Alderton have teamed up on this new podcast mulling over topics ranging from Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s split to drinking in Finland.they e got a great, fun repartee.

Pampering with: Percy & Reed

Firstly, a big hurrah for M&S’ beauty hall which, after closer inspection, really is quite something: Pixi, REN, Josh Wood, L’Occitane, NUXE, Neal’s Yard…I treated myself last week to Percy & Reed’s moisturising shampoo and conditioner after being aghast by how dry my hair was getting. It is a revelation. I should have known though, I have their wonder balm and it really lives up to its name, taming my, very naturally wavy/frizzy, mane.

Reading: Fingers in The Sparkle Jar
After listening to his fascinating Desert Island Discs, I cannot wait to read naturalist Chris Packham’s memoir. I finally picked up this beautiful hardback copy yesterday.


Wearing: H&M’s Linen T-Shirts & an ASOS floral dress
Not usually being one for patterns, but being someone always lacking in weekend attire, I bought two of these gorgeous quality, linen T-shirts in off-white and grey. They have a lovely scoop neck and hang really nicely. The off-white one is a rather see though (cheeky!) so may warrant a little vest top underneath depending upon your preference (either that or a bright pink or black bra!). You can also get 25% off one item if you sign up to their newsletter. A new wardrobe staple for me and at less than £15 each I think they are excellent value for money.

I’ll wear them with my Monica Vinader pendant. I’m really tempted to try the layered necklace look and love the tiny horn necklace from Lucy Williams x Missoma.

Having said I’m not really one for patterns, dresses I think must be the exception. This dress from ASOS is just perfect at £45 (and cheaper as I managed to  find a 20% off discount code):

I’ve been saving up my Boots points and finally spent them a week ago when I  indulged in the Chanel Pinceau Brosse Sourcils No.11 BrowLash Brush. I’m now watching this Lisa Eldridge tutorial on brows repeatedly.


What do you indulge in robots your happiness?

Have a great weekend x
