Everyday Indulgences

I make my day a little more special by peppering it with these luxuries. They make me feel very indulged, and are totally worth it in my book (titled How to Pamper Yourself All the Time and Justify It in the Name of Self-Improvement).
  1. Morning cuppa: For me nothing beats a good, aromatic cup of coffee at the start of the day. I get mine from the Orange County plantation in Coorg whose environmentally-friendly philosophy I really admire.
  2. New podcasts to hear while driving: I eagerly wait for new podcasts from my favourite shows because they change my drive time and somehow make me feel smarter and more in-the-know. Anything to develop these facets of my brain, she said.
  3. Perfume: The woodsy, citrusy perfume Escale √† Pondich√©ry makes me feel like I’m on a holiday. Could one ask for more from a perfume?
  4. The perfect everyday lipstick: I finally found the right shade for me. A small step towards my dream of looking like the girls I saw cycling to work in Amsterdam/all over Europe - immaculately made up but very natural. Seriously, how do they do it?
  5. Ordering an eagerly anticipated book online: Nothing to beat finding/ordering a book you’ve been looking forward to for ages - in my case right now it's Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
  6. Soaking my feet in warm water at the end of the day: Sooo good for tired feet.
  7. Pine-scented soy candles: I love the candles made by Niana; they spread their fragrance lightly through the room and are most relaxing. Home spa, if you will.
  8. Random email/text chats with my BFFs: Life updates, gossip and randomness in short sentences is guaranteed to brighten the day.
  9. Balsamic vinegar and freshly cut mango: Balsamic + any sweet fruit + salt is a match made in heaven. You have to try this.
  10. Fancy skincare products: Judge me if you will, but I have a weakness for all things skincare. I guess I'm a believer. They make my day (ahem, while preparing me for the onslaught of age and pollution of course). Thank you, Visionnaire!
What are your little indulgences through the day? I'm sure everyone has some? I can't be the only one with a neon sign over my head . . . 


  1. Didn't know you liked the coffee from orange county. We were just there and I would have picked you up some. They're a few more that are awesome and will share with you when I see you. Love the post!

    1. Oh, I love their coffee! They send it to me in bulk so I get for home and for the office. The coffee from Mojo Plantation is very good too - did you go there as well?
      Thanks about the post, my faithful comment leaver :)
