I came up with the idea after I was going through a rough time just before Christmas and my best friend picked me up and said " Come on , lets go dress up so you can have your sparkle back ". Being the wonderful person she is, she took me to my room, helped me do my hair and make up, fetched me my favorite feel good outfit and my cat ears headband and gave me back my sparkle. I felt good.
This got me thinking, everybody should have a box of little " Pick me up presents " for themselves filled with about five things that just make you feel a little sparklier. So I made one and I love it, so I thought I'd share it with you in case it might help :) Please show yourself the kindness that my best friend showed me. We all deserve kindness.
MY SPARKLE BOX :
Here;s what I've got in my Sparkle Box. They're all little things that I put on to make myself feel worth it and give me an instant pick me up .
The Body Shop - The Sparkler ( £15.00 )
This little pot of spray-able body glitter is the literal way to get your sparkle back ! I always call it glitter puff and regularly wear it in my hair to cheer me up ... even if it doesn't cheer my best friend up when I stay over and there's glitter all over her pillow the next morning , oops !
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick - Drop Of Sherry ( £4.99 )
This bright dash of colour always gives me a confidence boost and I can't get enough of it :)
Lush - I Love Juicy Shampoo ( £5.75 for 100g )
I received a bottle of this fruity- citrus scented shampoo for Christmas from my sister and have used it everyday since ! It's brilliant on greasy hair and the scent leaves me wide awake and ready to take on the world :)
Something to make you feel good - Cat ears headband ( £1.99 )
Everybody has that accessory that always just makes them feel 10 times better and for me ( as strange as it my be ) it has to be one of my many cat ear head bands ! I rarely leave the house without a pair on because for some reason I'm always happier when wearing them . So why fight it ?
Lush - Vanillary ( £14.00 )
I've always loved Lush's vanilla perfume and I always get lots of compliments on it throughout the day whenever I wear it ! Plus, vanilla induces positivity so what's not to love ?
I really hope that this idea helps you out ! I'd love to hear all about it if you make one and let me know in the comments what you'd have in your Sparkle Box :)
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) Stay Sparkly ^.^
Lots of love, Marianne xxx
