Taking some time out...

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Hi girls!

Today, I am writing a little post on the importance of taking some time out and focussing on 'me' time. We are all guilty of running around and getting carried away with everyday life that we actually forget to look after ourselves!

I wanted to share with you my top tips for taking some time out and getting the relaxation that you need!

1. Social media detox! 

Now, I know it may sound crazy but I feel we are all so wrapped up in a social media bubble we forget the importance of what is going on around us. Recently, I spent a few days away from social media and I felt incredibly refreshed. I'm not sure about you but I sometimes work myself up so much comparing myself to others on social media and often feeling as if I am not good enough. However, having a few days away from social media really does do the world of good in my eyes. I would recommend giving it a go for a few days!

2. Booking a beauty treatment! 

Lets face it, us girls love a relaxing pamper session! Whether that be a hair appointment, nails or a massage! I recently discovered Urban Massage and thought the idea was genius for us girls on the go! As we all know a massage is probably one of the most relaxing treatments but via Urban Massage you can book a therapist to come direct to your house! Perfect if you don't have time to visit your local salon! I personally don't really think there seems anything more appealing after a long day at work than to come home knowing you are in for a relaxing treat! If you like the sound of it, I have a little treat for you; use code 'Journey' when you sign up and save £10 off your first booking!

3. Arrange a day out with your friends. 

I am always planning things with my friends and I think it is really important to do so, especially if you are in need of a good laugh! There is no better therapy than laughter, especially if you are feeling a little stressed and run-down! As it's coming up to Christmas why not organise something festive and fun! You can't go wrong with cocktails and a nice meal!

4. Booking a short break. 

One of my favourite things to do is to book something to look forward too! There are so many amazing offers out there and I'm constantly looking at new places to visit! I find that weekend breaks are perfect if you fancy trying something new or spending some time away from working life!

Tracksuit set: Misspap - save using code 'LAURENELLIS10'.

Evening girls! 

Today I am sharing with you a lookbook based on a recent collaboration with JD Sports and their exclusive own brand, Pink Soda Sport

I am always on the lookout for sportswear, mainly because it is so easy to wear, even when you aren't hitting the gym! I much prefer wearing leggings and trainers on a Sunday instead of a dress and heels! Anyway, when I was approached for this collaboration I was so excited, mainly because I had been eyeing up a few Pink Soda items for a while in-store! 

I love how fashionable the brand is, it makes wearing workout gear fun and stylish! It's safe to say I have a new fave brand, ha! On a serious note though, I will 100% be ordering a few bits from the new collection, it is worth checking out if you haven't already!  

As you may have noticed, I have also been desperate to get my hands on NMDS for a while now and couldn't actually believe how lucky I was to receive a pair! They are incredibly comfy and I have actually paired them with as many outfits as possible - I guess you could say I am a little obsessed! 

You can find my outfit below...
