Following the merriment of Christmas and New Year, it’s now time to wish your friends and family a very happy (or should that be sad?) Blue Monday.
The third Monday of January has officially been named as the nation’s lowest point of the year, due to its weather conditions, our debt levels, the time since Christmas, the time since failing our New Year resolutions, and our lack of motivation to be proactive.
We’re here to help debunk the social, emotional and geographical woes of this solemn day, with an array of treats to help trick the brain.
Is it raining? We hadn’t noticed
Welcome to the UK, where it will rain whenever it likes for however long it fancies. Ensure your outfit isn’t dampened by the glum skies with these vibrant and colourful designs from Orla Kiely, Radley, and Collier Campbell.
Winter fashion staple
Next, the coat. To take on wintry winds and freezing temperatures, you have to go padded. We’ve conveniently grouped all of our puffer and quilted coats together, so you can scroll through our most warm and snug selection at your leisure. This Centigrade design has caught our eye, featuring a stylish faux fur trim, super-soft filling, and zip fastening; with 135 five star reviews, we’re not the only ones.
Money, money, money
While we’re all feeling the squeeze following all of the present-giving at Christmas, don’t be afraid to have a sly shop. Visit our website to find all of our latest offers, including The Big Deals of the week and Easy Pay offers. With our instalment option, you can spread the cost across two, three or four monthly interest-free payments. That way, you can treat yourself today and worry about your bank account after your next pay day.
Plus, don’t forget, our Clearance doors are open throughout the year, so take a look at our latest reductions to save a pretty penny while ordering a pretty product.
So it’s motivation the nation needs? Motivation the nation will get. Over on our Health and Fitness page, we’ve quizzed TV presenter and fitness fanatic Jenni Falconer for her top tips on getting fit and maintaining a healthier lifestyle.
While you’re there, make sure you take a look at our fantastic range of hair and body supplements, at-home fitness equipment, and stylish activewear – that summer body is a hop, skip and long jump away.
Self-tan for your self-plan
We’re all for fairer skin tones, but after six months without vitamin D, we could do with a glowing boost. Tan Luxe’s Face Drops offer a more tailored approach to tanning, as you can add however many drops you want to your usual everyday moisturiser. Utan & Tone’s weekly body tanning formula boasts a blend of 7.5% Organic DHA, shea butter, aloe vera, and vitamins – basically a recipe for silky-soft, bronzed skin.
So long, December
Christmas and New Year? We’re well rid of them.
