As we enjoy the last of the warm days of summer, there is definitely a chill creeping in of an evening now heralding the first signs of autumn. Before we know it we will be crunching leaves underfoot and admiring the array of colours that autumn brings with it. It is a season to enjoy and a season for treating yourself before the busyness of Christmas and the new year sneak up on us. What will you do to make the most of it? If you are looking for inspiration, then today we are sharing with you a few ideas of how you can treat yourself this autumn.
Take a day, just for you
When was the last time you took a day out, away from work and responsibilities, just for you? A whole day of treating yourself sounds so good, doesn’t it? Then do it!
You could relax completely at somewhere like LabSpa, a day guaranteed to be pure indulgence that will give you a boost to get through the coming busy season. Or perhaps the idea of meandering around the shops and having a little spree appeals to you? You could include a long, lazy lunch at your favourite restaurant. Or maybe just staying home and curling up with a good book and Netflix for company all day is just what you need, so go for it.
Give yourself a makeover
A new season means new style, so now is a great time to give yourself a makeover. Take to the shops and see what grabs your eye or rummage through your wardrobe and rediscover hidden gems. Try pairing things differently to create new outfits or accessorising when you normally wouldn’t.
Pop over to YouTube and watch a few new makeup tutorials so that you can update your look in minutes and have fun playing around with it.
Book yourself in to get a new hair colour and cut as nothing will change your appearance faster than a brand new style.
Go on a minibreak
As the summer fades, so do our memories of lovely holidays, so book yourself a minibreak to look forward to.
Pull out your calendar and find yourself a weekend that you are free over the next couple of months. What could be nicer than filling it with a minibreak?
You could pop to Europe for a few days or explore the UK for some breathtaking sights and scenery.
Book yourself on a course
Autumn always feels like a good time for new beginnings. It is time to challenge yourself to try something new and learn a new skill.
Have a think about things that you have always fancied knowing how to do or things that you enjoy learning, and then take it from there. There are thousands of courses available online, many of them are free too. Then there might be evening classes near you, one-off workshops running or you could simply buy a book or watch a YouTube video to learn something.
Learning a new skill is so rewarding and it could spark a new hobby, friendship or even a career path.
