Some might say, “To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.” And this is true. Every time! But it certainly doesn’t hurt to get a little help. Here is a list of inspo for things you can buy or do to show yourself the love and care that YOU deserve.

In addition to things you can buy, here are things that are free and always fabulous:

Kindness

Taking a walk

Stretching

Calling a friend

Deep breathing

With a trip to the Dollar Store, grocery store, or your bedroom, you can also do:

Wine & Art Night

Cook a Meal (look at Bon Appetit, Half Baked Harvest, Eden Grinshpan for perpetual culinary inspiration)

Picking up the book you bought last year but haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. Busted!

Comrad Compression Socks

The perfect way to decompress is to compress! These socks are not only cute but serve the function of giving you better circulation throughout your body by pushing blood back up to your heart, which gives overall well-being for you and your body.

MIRROR by Lululemon

This is more than a mirror. It’s the ultimate home gym. MIRROR is part-normal-mirror, part-TV-screen, and nothing like other at-home gym options as it takes up zero floor space, you can hang it up or lean it against a wall. Plus, while a spin bike stays a spin bike (or an inadvertent laundry basket!) MIRROR is just a normal mirror whenever you aren’t working out which is key for keeping your living aesthetic in tact.

Happy Obsidian, Gua Sha Tool

So long puffy-faced mornings! Gua Sha is one type of hand-held tool which can just drain away the excess fluid from your face as other tools like face rollers can do. Swelling and fluid retention can happen for a number of reasons, but one is because of lymph not draining properly from your face. Gua Sha can help combat this. Further, they can help in assisting more blood flow on the face, leaving it leaner, and smoother for a fraction of the cost (and the time) that it would if you went to a medspa.

The Friendship Jar

*Queue I’ll Be There For You, The Friends Theme Song*

What started as a gift between these two internet besties is now something you can share with your friends and loved ones no matter how near or far they are! Sarah Nicole Landry (that’s me!) and Bailey Stanworth have put together 60 prompts that are designed to inspire, challenge and remind someone of just how truly loved they are – because our besties deserve nothing less!

Atlas of the Heart, Brene Brown

We all love us some Brené, and she is back for another brilliant and thoughtful book. She says of her latest novel, “I want this book to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves.”

In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes her readers on a journey through eighty-seven of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. How perfect for this

Glow by Casper

By virtue of the name alone, lights are meant to keep us up. Even bedroom lighting. That’s why Glow is unique and the perfect companion for deep, better sleep. Timed by an app, it fits your personal sleep needs and patterns and the sleek design fits every home.

Cozzzy Crew Top & Track Pant– Knix

Give *clap* me *clap* all *clap* the *clap* comfies *clap*!

Seeing as we don’t have much of anything to do anymore, why not do so in style? Made with their signature dreamy Cozzzy fabric, Knix’s oversized, ultra-soft and fluffy pullover top and track pants are perfectly comfortable for a day at home or when you’re on the move.

Slip – Silk Pillowcase

Betty White famously said, “get at least 8 hours of beauty sleep. 9 if you’re ugly.” and while she was clearly being facetious, there’s something to be said about creating an environment that helps with sound sleep. Enter: the Slip Silk Pillowcase. An anti-bedhead, anti-sleep-crease standard queen-size pillowcase made of the highest-grade mulberry silk for the ultimate beauty sleep and less-visible signs of aging, it is the pillowcase of your wildest dreams – literally.

One Line a Day Journal

One thing we can all agree on is that while the days have been long, the years have been SHORT, so much so that key moments go by without much thought or reflection. The One Line a Day Journal does that heavy lifting for you. This classic memory keeper is the perfect way to track the ups and downs of life, day by day. 

Hayu Canada Subscription

Reality on Demand is the stuff of TV addicts’ dreams. Whether you’re into old Keeping Up, or the latest Love Island Australia, by a simple search and click, it is at your disposal. TV is a great escape, and Reality TV really is a love language. Go on, treat yourself.

Frank Bod – In Your Dreams, Sleep Scrub & Soak

The collab we’ve all been waiting for, between scrub and soak that smells like a dream and leaves skin feeling even dreamier.

Here are the highlights:
Magnesium helps to soothe muscles and calm the mind
Epsom Salts exfoliate and help smooth dry, tired skin
Lavender Oil helps to promote softer-feeling skin

Need I say more?

Maison Margiela – REPLICA – Lazy Sunday Morning Candle

Known for their bang on reproductions of familiar scents and moments of varying locations and periods, Replica candles are the ultimate at-home luxury, but this particular scent is an homage to the vibe we’re trying to recreate, and what screams self-care more than a luxurious candle that transports you to exactly where you need to be: your bed.
