Blue Monday

On the 18th January, it was Blue Monday. Apparently the saddest day of the year. I was contacted by the lovely people of Wynsors World of Shoes to see if I would like to receive a VIP box filled with goodies for Blue Monday and beat the blues! I was really excited to see what goodies I received in the surprise VIP box, along with the shoes I had chosen. In the VIP box I received - A pair of trainers, Small tub of dark chocolate, Barry M nail polish, small notebook, Wooden frame and Re-useable bag.

 
So how are these goodies supposed to help you stop feeling Blue on Monday?

 
Trainers - I really do think walking helps anyone if they are feeling depressed, low, stressed or someone who needs time out. The fresh air helps you and you are concentrating so much on walking and the views, it kind of makes you forget about everything else.
 
Chocolate - When I feel down, I always crave chocolate. For some reason I just think chocolate makes everything better, doesn't it?
 
Small Notebook - Sometimes when you are feeling down, it can be a good idea to write down your feelings. Having a small notebook can mean you can carry it around in your pocket or bag with you. You could also write a list of positives and when you are feeling down, take a look at that list and remind yourself that there is some good out there.
 
Barry M Nail Polish - Again, when a woman feels down, having a pamper can make you feel a bit better. Have a day to yourself or with a girl friend and pamper yourselves and just relax. Forget about everything for a good few hours.
 
Photo Frame - Stick a photo in a photo frame about a happy time or memory. When you are feeling down, take a look at the photo and it will take you back to good days, happy days.
 


 * I was given these items free of charge in return of a post about Blue Monday & and honest review. All words and photos are my own, as always.

  2. Such a good idea. I think you described everything in the box perfectly. I know just getting a box of treats on blue Monday (or any Monday for that matter) would cheer me up!

  3. That's so cute and the little slogan on the notebook is adorable. I can see why it might be the most depressing day as a lot of people still haven't been paid yet but January doesn't need to be sad! x
