purchases to perk up january

Let’s face it – January is miserrrrable. I spend a lot of it moping about, wondering how Christmas ever happened and wanting to book a one-way ticket to the Seychelles. We’re all a bit fatter, a bit paler and a lot poorer. Whatever disposable income you have got left is quickly siphoned off in the sales, and yet, doesn’t a lot of what’s on offer seem rubbish?! Especially now we’re well into January – stores look like jumble sales, with stock that may well have been dragged up from the noughties. If I wanted a gypsy skirt with a disk belt I’d be sorted.

Anywayyyy, now I’ve made us all suitably depressed (sorry!), it’s time for a pick me up. As means of avoiding the dreaded sales, I’m sharing 25 products that will perk up dreary January days. Yup, money doesn’t buy happiness, but I’m not gonna kid myself and pretend it doesn’t bloody well help! Most of these are new in, or just things I’d loveee to add to my life, setting myself up for 2017 with some fresh pieces.
