Yesterday I had a really 'down' day. Everything was annoying me, I kept crying, I couldn't focus it, you know how it is right? I wanted to run away and hide for a while, so I did..

But today is a new day and I feel inspired to write a little post on how I bounce back and make sure my bad days are followed by better ones.

Have a yummy breakast because yummy food is the best. If you can, go out for it. I love Bills especially for a good brekkie, or you can always rustle up something yourself. Last weekend me and Simon made pancakes with bacon & maple syrup and it was just DELICIOUS. Its a cheaper alternative and you can make it slightly healthier too. Whats your favourite yummy breakfast? I like bagels with cream cheese & salmon too! How posh.

Mediate because we all get stressed and anxious & our minds can become clogged up and fuzzy and its important to take care of our brain, as much as we take care of the rest of our bodies. I use a lot of apps to mediate, some cost money but a good one thats free is, Headspace. It helps you to clear your mind, breathe & just be. Its so important for all of us to sometimes, just be.

Make a list, write down your thoughts & plan  whats on the agenda for today? Can I bake, watch TV, write posts, what? A little structure aint ever hurt nobody, so get a routine in so you can focus and have a productive day. Even if productive means eating an entire packet of biscuits whilst watching Orange Is The New Black lol! Sometimes for me, I clear my diary, forget the lists and take out my frustration on cleaning & getting the flat in order. Whatever plan you have, make it happen and make it great!

Apply your favourite lipstick because sometimes lipstick can fix all our problems. If I've had a bad day, wearing makeup is my idea of hell. I want to look bad to match my mood, is that just me? But after my sleep and the new day has arrived, I want to feel glorious again, and sometimes makeup does that. Wack out the contour, define those brows and apply your favourite lipstick. At the moment I am loving MAC Mocha, MAC Velvet Teddy & NARS Cruella. What are you loving?

Listen to your favourite music & maybe even dance around naked, who cares? Nothing makes me happier than singing my favourite happy/sassy songs at the top of my lungs. Destiny's Child is definitely a good way to go, or a bit of old school NSync lol? I know I'm not the only one.. Music is like therapy for most people so why not wake up to something that makes you so happy? Download Spotify and thank me later.

So those are my little tips on 5 ways to having a better day. If you have any tips, please feel free to add them into the comments :) or tweet me. I would love to hear them.


  1. yes! applying my fav makeup puts me in a good mood, and writing down what I want to accomplish throughout the day really helps me :)

  2. These all really do perk me up, been having a few bad days lately :( x


  3. I write in my journal and I curl up in bed and watch a good movie or t.v series that will make me laugh.


  4. Yes! Food and music, there's no better way! Breakfast is by far the best part of the day! X

    New blog design and next post of the holiday series over at-

  5. Yas to making lists! I make one every night before I go to bed for the next day... It makes me feel like my life is in order again...kinda ahaha!


  6. MMM food! My favourite breakfast is poached eggs on a toasted muffin with marmite spread!...Totally random I know!

    I have had lots of bad days recently and also love to make lists and have been into meditating since I visited a little town called Glastonbury. Have you ever visited? I can imagine you really loving it.

    I will post a link below of my trip.

  7. Mediating is really helpful! Helps make my day suck less!


  8. Such good tips - making lists is my favourite thing ever as it keeps me focussed and organised and helps to keep everything in perspective rather than flying round my head driving me crazy. I agree with the lipstick thing too - even if I'm staying at home all day I have started to make sure I look presentable because that puts me in the right mindset for the day!

  9. Putting on lipstick or make-up in general I find is a great way to motivate me! Even if I'm just at home all day, I'll sometimes try a new look and it'll help me to great through the tasks I need to do instead of just slobbing out in front of the tv. But yes a yummy breakfast is a must.
