Little Indulgences

The first couple of months of the year have never been my favorite. It's cold and dreary, the holidays are over, I have insurance to deal with on an almost daily basis - it's just not the best time. However, I've noticed lately that I'm appreciating little things here and there and those are making a big difference in my overall mood. 

Aveda Rosemary Mint shampoo
I re-purchased this because it's a great clarifying shampoo and I was in need of that. I'd forgotten how amazing it smells and feels, though. It's like a mini spa treatment in the shower.

New candles
The lovely Elle from Elle Sees asked me on Twitter about what candles I'm using and loving right now. I just started burning my newest Rewined candle in Pinot Noir. My latest Bath and Body works haul had a Pink Sangria and Lemon candle and I can't wait to use those. Pink Sangria was a repurchase that I loved from last year. Lemon is new but I can't imagine not loving it as well. Having a couple of candles burning around the house at night is such a simple thing but it always makes me feel good.

Sex & the City: The Complete Series
An oldie but a goodie. I've started popping one of these discs in at night and watching a few episodes before I go to bed and I have to say - it's as good as ever. Or maybe when you've watched something 1000 times it's just comforting. Either way, I'll take it. 

Other things I'm looking forward to - diving into my March magazines (next best magazine month after September), taking a few days for a much needed getaway this week, making an appointment to get my hair cut and colored (once I figure out exactly what I want to do).

What are your latest indulgences?

I love that shampoo. So yummy.

I couldn't agree more -- it's the little things that get me through rough winter days. Of course, mine tend to be comprised of sugar and butter -- it's a problem.

Ooh, that shampoo sounds amazing! I may have to try it when mine run out! And yay for SatC, I've been watching on Fridays while I work from home :)
As for my indulgences...hmmm....I have no idea, at the moment I don't have time for much except work and sleep
