It’s been one of those weeks. At the office, your work is piling up faster than you can finish it. At home, you struggle to stay on top of the bills. And the laundry. And don’t forget the dog needs to go to the vet. Not to mention the stack of dishes in the sink which, no matter how hard you wish, are simply not going to clean themselves.
Just creating a short period of “Me Time” during each day can do wonders for your psyche, and keep you fresh and ready to face the challenges of each day. At Things Remembered, we know that to make “Me Time” really special, you need to put your mark on it. Don’t worry: we have the perfect collection of self-pampering items that you can put your stamp on, turning any mini-staycation from reality into a magical – and much deserved – escape and with Relaxation day coming up on August 15th, there’s no better time to create your happy place.
