|BRAND NEW ME|31 self-care ideas


One of my goals for 2015 was to spend more time relaxing and making sure I take at least 30 mins 'me time' every day to practice self-care.  To achieve this I knew we had to get T into a better bedtime routine so it freed up some time in the evening for me or for us to have stay at home date nights.  I also need to work on LarabeeUK in the evenings instead of the wee hours and keep the house clean and tidy (The Hubs is involved in that one too!)

Read all about how we've managed to get T into a new bedtime routine here.

Here's a months worth of 'me time' ideas I've been doing, I've not managed to knock of everything from this list and some I've done lots more than once, manicures, bubble baths and reading are top on the list!  I'm also hoping to add to this list so that I can keep up momentum.
