Treat Yo'Self! Nice things to do this month because you're worth it

When it's cold and gloomy out and you've had enough of January self punishment, it's well time to treat yo'self

January is the Monday of a year, and yet people insist on punishing themselves. Not 'round these parts. While we're not playing to the excess of December (who would want to?) we're being good to ourselves this month.

Being good doesn't mean excessive drinking or not working out - there's nothing wrong with wanting to get fit. So we're not advising you go on a bender or even crack open a bottle of wine tonight. We're also not saying to abandon your new fitness class, either. We're talking about loving yourself and taking positive steps to a fulfilled life without making yourself miserable.

So here are a few things to do this week to make this month a lil better.

Read a good book

treat yo self book

If you haven't read it already, OMGWACA The Novel is well worth it. It's laugh-out-loud funny and a great tonic for a dreary aul day.

In other book news, I've been reading Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty, author of Big Little Lies, and it's very good. What are you reading at the moment? What do you recommend? Comments in the comments!

Snuggle in some cosy jammies (and don't forget the slippers OR the dressing gown)

Pyjamas - Debenhams €22.50 WAS €45 / Slippers - Penneys €4 / Dressing gown - Marks & Spencer €39

A really cosy pair of pyjamas and fluffy slippers and the warmest of warm dressing gowns is a combo made in Hygge heaven.

New bed clothes


200 Thread Count Satin Stripe Duvet Set Grey Now €35 WAS €70

The same goes for brand new sheets and duvet covers and pillowcases. Wear your new nightwear and then jump into fresh sheets. Bliss!

A hot water bottle

While we're on this roll... but seriously, I have two - one for my feet and the other to hug - and it's the best.

Get a facial... or give one to yourself

Facials are synonymous with treating yourself and you and I both know they're the ultimate treat. But, since it's January and we're all broke, you might want to light a few candles and put on some nice music and give one to yourself. Here's our guide to the best at-home facial you can do.

Dine Out - for less

Because it's January and eateries expect things to be quiet, there are tons of deals out. Early birds or two-for-ones are available at almost every restaurant and some places are going the extra mile. Tribeton Galway is running a promotion called Flipping January where groups of 2 - 6 diners can flip a coin with their server to win their din dins for free! (Monday - Wednesday, 6 - 8 pm.)
