You may not be a millionaire with tons of free time to sit around and enjoy life’s luxuries, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make your life a little more fabulous on a daily basis. I believe that life is for enjoying, so treat yourself in small ways every day. Here are seven little ways to make your life more fabulous.
1. Take more bubble baths
Bubble baths are one of the most glamorous things you can do, and yet people rarely take them. Get some bubbles, fill up your bath, get something to read, light some candles, and sip on a fun beverage. You are living your best life.
2. Wear giant sunglasses
The bigger your sunglasses, the more fabulous you are. We all know this, and yet most of us have barely begun to explore just how big our shades can get.
3. Light more candles
You probably have a candle that you don’t light all that often. Light that sucker up! Candlelight is infinitely more fabulous and flattering than dumb ol’ electricity or whatever. Get a scented candle, unless you hate yourself.
4. Do one expensive beauty thing
Get your nails done, or get eyelash extensions, or get your brows professionally shaped. Most of us can’t afford to do all of those things, but most people can afford to do one thing to treat ourselves every so often, and that one thing will make you feel fantastic. I used to get my nails done every few weeks and I loved that I was glamorous 24/7 thanks to my shiny talons.
5. Put all the clutter in your house in fancy boxes
Fancy people have boxes, not clutter! Get them from IKEA or Amazon and then put all your little piles of stuff in them. Suddenly you’ll look like you live in a minimalist paradise.
6. Buy flowers
Flowers will make your life better. I know flowers feel like a ridiculous luxury but you can get some nice ones for like five bucks and they will brighten your day every day for at least a week. You deserve flowers in your life.
7. Use your fanciest things every day
Lots of people have nice dishes and regular dishes, and they only use the nice dishes when they have company or it’s Christmas or something. But you know what? You can actually use your nice dishes every day. It’s allowed. Wear your pretty underwear, or your favorite shirt, or your good cologne. Today is as good a day as any.
