  • Retail Therapy – Since it is starting to get cooler and the summer clothing is being pushed to the back of the wardrobe, it would be rude to not buy a few new pieces!  A new jumper or pair of boots to get you through the winter season…perfect!
  • Me time – It is always important to focus on yourself, especially if you are feeling a bit low.  Take some time out to have a long hot bath, snuggle up and watch a film and pamper yourself with a face mask.
  • Get a good night’s sleep- Not getting enough sleep can lead to mood changes.  Ensuring your get enough sleep will maximise concentration, help you feel refreshed and focused.  The Harrogate Candle Company’s Dream fragrance has the relaxing properties of lavender oil blended beautifully with the sweetness of vanilla and the depth of musk to create a truly warming and dreamy fragrance, perfect to relax you before bed.
  • Clear out your wardrobe – Clearing out old clothes and making some space can be a great way to beat the blues.  Donating your old things to charity or simply making space and reorganising can really refocus
