8 ways to beat the blahs

i’m not sure if it’s the copious amounts of food and spirits we consume in december, the lack of routine, the after christmas credit card bills or nasty weather (and by the way: who can cope with it getting dark at 4:30pm, really?!) but with january comes the “blahs”.

dull skin, you’re exhausted and are sure someone has replaced your wardrobe with a smaller version of each item. these 8 suggestions will help you feel bright and {sparkly} again… combine a few or try them all!

red lips

a bright lipstick: when i feel crummy, you’ll find me wearing a bright red or magenta lipstick. fake it ’til you make it, ladies!

green tea

green tea: drinking a few cups throughout the day isn’t only energizing but helps to detox the body and speed the metabolism.

nail polish

paint your nails: i feel my best when i’m ‘polished’. i love a classic red, and as spring gets closer, a neon pink.


brighten your teeth: crest whitestrips are such an easy, accessible way to sparkle your pearly whites.


shave your legs: don’t lie, you let it slip in the winter. exfoliating, shaving and then slathering your dry legs with moisturizer will make you feel more attractive!


groom those tootsies: get a pedicure or do it yourself at home. i feel so much better when my feet look the part. you can get one for $30 at some salons; treat yourself!


sweat it out: so obvious, but moving until you sweat will make you feel and look better. your skin will glow from the inside out and your brain will clarify. if it means dancing in your living room or walking up a hill to your fave music; move it!


self tanner: i haven’t ever used self tanner, but i know i feel so much better with a little colour on my skin. if you use one, now is the time to break it out! (don’t forget to exfoliate your skin first).
