Our top tips to beat the January 2021 blues

Feeling a little... blue? January might be one of the coldest, darkest months but that doesn't mean we can't create our own sunshine. Here's how.

Feeling a little down? It’s fair to say January is a tough old month. But look on the bright side, the days are getting longer and with each that passes, we move closer to spring.

In the meantime though, try to look at the positives. Do your hair just because you can, top up your fake tan even though no one is going to see it, and treat yourself (and your partner) to something a little raunchy… if you catch our drift. Happy shopping!

For self-care

We’re talking hair masks, fake tan, nail varnish, moisturisers – the works. It doesn’t matter that barely anyone is going to see you, just remember that you’re doing this for you.
