Even with the best will in the world, January takes some getting through. So it’s no surprise that someone decided to advance the notion that the most depressing, miserable and generally soul-destroying day of the year should fall in January – the 24th in fact – now popularly known as Blue Monday. Of course, there’s no real science proving we feel extra awful on this day, so we say buck the trend and embrace the blue!
The great thing about January is it means that Spring really isn’t that far away – the days are already getting noticeably longer (by about 2 minutes every day) and you can now daydream about the summer to come. To help you in this delightful pastime, why not treat yourself to a gorgeous blue Riviera Escape Candle and Corsica Mosaic Jar Candle Holder set from Yankee Candle and bring the scents of the Mediterranean summer right into your home? Just imagine yourself relaxing in a hammock, the warm breeze lazily moving in the Cyprus trees as you contemplate a dip in the sea. And with a burn time of up to 150 hours, there’s no rush at all – just relax.
We all know that what we wear can really influence our mood and this goes double for underwear! This stunning blue lace detail bralette from Freya Fancies is not only beautiful to look at, but feels great on with its gentle shaping and support. Blue has never been so much fun and when you couple it with these sexy Freya Fancies Brazilian briefs, you’re going to wish that every day was Blue Monday. Please note that when you’re wearing smalls as delectable as these, it’s your duty to spritz on an equally divine fragrance and ‘Flora’ from Gucci really hits the spot with its feminine, sensual and fresh scent. Presented in a pretty decorative box, this would also make a wonderful gift for someone else to help them through Blue Monday and the rest of January.
Still feeling a bit under par? Here’s something to really give you a lift. Not only does this Apple Watch Series 1 with Rose Gold Aluminium Case have all the features of the original Apple Watch, it’s now faster than ever, with great battery life and loads of fantastic features to help you with your New Year fitness goals. It’s a real beauty too, with a durable but lightweight aluminium case and sports band – we’ve gone for Midnight Blue, of course.
Speaking of New Year fitness goals, in case things haven’t been going quite to plan on that front, we’ve got just the thing to get you going again. Nike’s Air Max 90 Essential trainers are so comfy and good looking – blue, yes, but with a splash of pink to remind you that the good times are not far away.
Here’s to sunnier times ahead!
