If you’ve read my blog so far this year, you’ll know that my aim for 2017 is to invest more in self care. I actually wrote a post explaining a little more about this, which you can read here: ‘What is Self Care and Why is it my 2017 Focus?‘.

If you follow me on Twitter you may have noticed that I haven’t been feeling too well over the past few days and have had little more energy to just lay in bed… I was very unwell on Friday night and did not get to sleep until Saturday morning when the sun was rising – not nice!
With that in mind, I thought I would share with you some of the things I am loving this Sunday to pick me up from being poorly – or at least things I can dream about having or doing whilst still in my sick bed 🙁
Here are the things that have been getting me through my rough few days:
