Because self-love matters

Sinead Martin |

Sure, we all love to be showered with gifts every now and then and if that’s on the cards for you this 14 February, then hey good for you. But there’s no reason to sit around waiting to be treated to a few niceties.- It’s the year 2019, hello. – That’s why, we’re dubbing the month of February, our month of self-love (and long may it continue post-Feb.) Feel like joining us? Here are just a few ideas on how to spoil yourself but by all means, get creative and really indulge. You have our permission. (Even though you didn’t need it) …

There’s nothing quite like getting into bed early for a good ol’ Netflix sesh in brand new pj’s. There are tons of local loungewear brands popping up all over our IG feeds right now. What better way to give back to yourself and the universe than with a locally made and super soft pair of pajamas?

Breakkie in bed?

Who says you can’t have pancakes and eat them in bed too? Or maybe it’s a touch of granola and some of your favourite coconut yoghurt? Whatever your breakfast of choice, why not head back under the covers for an extra 7 minutes in bed while you enjoy the most important meal of the day? – Bonus points for inviting a few of your besties over for a post-slumber-feast.

Go on a stay-cation

Pack your bags and head to your nearest hotel for an in-town mini escape. Places like the Radisson Blu – in P.E, Cape Town and Jozi – offer amazing fine dining experiences that require no more company than the delicious plates of food in front of you. – Their in-house Amani Spa’s are also fully geared for solo spa experiences. Hint!: Ask for the self-love treatment  and get a welcome drink, 60-minute Swedish Massage, a bottle of Italian Prosecco and a Amani Spa gift for R935 (that’s a saving of R500 just for loving yourself).
