A bit of self-indulgence

A bit of self-indulgence

Half term is over, and even while it’s always fun to have the kids around, no one could blame you for being the tiniest bit glad of finally having some peace and quiet to yourself. Forget the cleaning and other little jobs you need to do – they can wait. You deserve a little bit of you-time – something that gets occasionally when you’re looking after family and your work obligations. Whether it’s chilling on the sofa or heading out for the day to catch up on some gossip with the girls, we’ve selected some ideas that will help you feel refreshed and recharged.

Afternoon_Tea_Brasserie_BlancFor a decadently delicious day out, invite a friend along for a spectacular treat: the Virgin Experience Days’ View from The Shard and Sparkling Afternoon Tea for Two at Brasserie Blanc. First, take in the majestic sight of London from the capital’s highest viewing platform, with its peerless 360º view across more than 200 iconic landmarks. Then enjoy a sophisticated and scrumptious afternoon tea at your choice of Brasserie Blanc’s locations in the West End or in City, which will include tasty finger sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, Maman Blanc’s legendary lemon drizzle cake, and a glass of fizz. An absolutely gorgeous girls’ day out – you deserve it!

At the other end of the spectrum but equally satisfying: a day at home, undisturbed, with a brilliant romantic movie on the telly and your feet up! One of the best films of 2016, nominated for multiple Academy Awards, will be sure to put a smile on your face and a song in your heart. La La Land stars the stunning and talented Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, and it’s just the sort of film to take you away from it all!

Before you pop in the DVD and kick back, indulge yourself in an at-home spa experience to melt all your tensions away! The Mask a-Peel Complexion Clearing Mask from lush New York spa Bliss will leave your skin bright and glowing, thanks to a soothing blend of tree tea oil, seaweed, willow and menthol extracts, and peels off to reveal a healthier looking complexion.

Is a day at the seaside more your thing, browsing the shops and walking the beach? Then you’ll love the Ted Baker Marina Icon Shopper – and get this – it comes with matching flip flops. How cute is that? The tote blends the colours of a tropical sunset with shimmery metallic stripes, and there’s a secret message hidden on the inside trim (you’ll have to see for yourself what it says!). The flip flops feature an orange patent effect and the Ted Baker logo in the form of a gold adornment. Even if you can’t get to the beach, this set will make you feel like you’re on holiday!

So go ahead – indulge in yourself just a little bit, and emerge feeling refreshed and renewed and ready to take on the world!
