The one with little luxuries

Holiday time = pamper myself as much as possible time.

And by pamper I mean do nice things that I enjoy but that fit with my student budget πŸ™‚

For example:

1) Getting back into pjs after my morning shower and reading in bed…ULTIMATE LUXURY.


2) Going for walks! I love walking but during the semester I don’t usually walk for pleasure, it is more of a harried sprint-walk to uni/work and back.

View from the Sydney harbour bridge walk (free when you just walk along the pedestrian route, lots of runners do it too πŸ™‚ ).

3) Doing DIY hair masks, face masks, taking baths, and other girly stuff like that. Post coming on my fave DIY stuff!

4) Going to the library. Seriously, the library is free and full of that thing that used to known as entertainment- books πŸ™‚

5)Β Coming home from work and binge watching tv instead of studying like I usually do during semester.


6) Going for longer runs because how nice is it to run when you are not rushing back to anything? This goes for longer yoga sessions too. Yay for that delicious 15 minute savasana:

7) This is a weird one, but planning out my next semester in terms of enrollment and timetable is actually really fun for me. I don’t feel stressed when things are organised and so planning out that kind of thing is very pampering in that way for me. Also I am kindof super excited about the next subjects I just enrolled in:



8) Pimping out my music library and re-vamping my playlists with fresh music.

9) Taking naps at any hour of the day.

10) And just doing lots of relaxing in general and eating my favourite treats and taking good care of myself πŸ™‚

What simple things do you do to pamper yourself?Β 

Do you go to the library? – Someone, make me feel like less of a nerd please.

What is your fave colour to paint your nails? -I love bright colours like red, blue, pink, orange, and sometimes black when I’m feeling angsty πŸ™‚

Do you do DIY beauty treatments? Does anyone have any I try?

  3. I love being able to work out for as long as I want, and getting back into bed after a long run is such a good feeling! I hope you are enjoying your down time!

    I am more of a DIY beauty treatment kind of girl, although I do once in a blue moon go to a spa. For a facial at home, I always exfoliate and then apply a mud mask. Always seems to given me a bright smooth complexion.

    I always paint my own nails…. that is when I find the time to! But when I do, I like neutral colors or pastels.

    Naps! Love them! Always! πŸ™‚

    • Me too! I looooove mud masks, they make your skin feel amazing! In New Zealand you can get really good volcanic mud type ones. I love pastels too but only for my fingers! Toes must be bright for me! πŸ™‚ yeah I am pretty sure I am gonna gear up for a nap later today πŸ™‚


  5. So did you see there is a Minions movie coming out very soon here in the US? Not sure if you get movies at the same time or not…. July 10th here. I thought of you when I saw that movie trailer!

    haha I am seriously the same way as you. When I get a nap, a coffee or a donut I consider it a “luxury”. ha I love how we are both so easily amused. If I could enjoy a run and a coffee for the rest of my mornings, I would be a happy girl :p
    Glad you’re enjoying your time off from school. You totally deserve it.!!! you are such a smart cookie.
