Your Cart is Empty and Unfulfilled. So Sad.

January 14, 2019

For many of us, January epitomizes the winter blahs with winter blues striking at any time. 

In addition to compiling a list of 18 research-backed tips to beat Blue Monday sadness, I have curated a Blue Monday collection of happy products on sale until January 28, 2019.

I chose items that complement the Blue Monday tips. Some of my favourites from the Blue Monday sale collection:

Oh My Darlin' Happiness Gift

Lothantique Authentique Clementine curated gift great for stress and anxiety relief

The first time I smelled Lothantique's Authentique Clementine, it was love at first scent. 

Not exactly orange, lemon or grapefruit, Lothantique's Clementine has this super happy citrus scent I can't get enough of.

I'm not typically a scent wearer, but when I smell Clementine I feel uplifted and energized. I secretly sneak spritzes of the eau de toilette throughout the day just to get a hit. Given that Clementine is said to be beneficial for curbing stress and anxiety, maybe my addiction isn't so surprising.

You won't smell like a giant tangerine: the fragrance softens to a delicate, subtle scent. 

The Lothantique Authentique line comes from a French family-owned business that has been making products to the most rigorous environmental and quality standards for 100 years.

I'm confident you'll love this scent. If you don't, I'll take it back and refund your money in a heartbeat. 

The package contains:

It is regularly $101, on sale until January 28, 2019 for $85.85 (you save $15.15). Items can be purchased separately.


Sloane Tea and the Whiskey Wedge

For fun I created the "Blue Monday Drink", and because I don't like clichés, it ain't blue.

The Blue Monday cocktail (with or without alcohol) contains brewed black tea (because of black tea's surprisingly long list of benefits, including stress relief and stimulation of metabolism, the respiratory system, heart, and kidneys), coconut milk (contains lauric acid which helps protect the body from infections), a touch of maple syrup (because we're Canadian, and oh yeah the 24 antioxidants), and vodka should you so choose. 


Sloane Tea Bold Breakfast is on sale for $16.15 (reg. $19) and the Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge is $21.25 (reg. $25) until January 28, 2019.



The PopSocket helps with using your phone with gloves in the winter

How did this little guy make the Blue Monday sale list?

I discovered that the PopSocket makes using my phone while wearing gloves in the winter SO MUCH EASIER! Not only does it take on the weight of the phone, but it helps the phone act as a wind shield for my fingers.

Trust me: the PopSocket is one of those winter survival devices you don't know you needed until you start using it. On sale for $16.92 (reg $19.90). 


Sash-A Wrap Belt

Sash-a wrap handmade leather belt 

Still feeling a little full from the holidays? Tired of your wardrobe?

The Sash-A handmade leather wrap belt made our Blue Monday collection list because it gives you a sexy, hourglass figure which, thanks to its flattering layered look, allows the belt to sit more comfortably and naturally on the body, regardless of your shape.  

Who doesn't love a belt that's forgiving and flattering?!

On sale until January 28, 2019 for $110.50 (reg. $130.)


Compagnie de Provence Hand Cream

Compagnie de Provence Hand Cream is a luxurious, sensationally smooth and conveniently portable hand cream that can soften the toughest, driest hands

Canada has two seasons: Summer and Dry Hands.

I adore this cream. Made with sweet almond oil, olive oil and grape seed oil and enriched with honey (which is antibacterial and full of antioxidants - who knew?), this hand cream is smooth, non-greasy and conveniently portable.

Moreover, the scent is both pleasant and subtle. Do yourself (or someone else - see Tip #12) a favour by getting this hand cream. Happy winter hands await.

30 mL size $8.50 (reg. $10.00)
