10 everyday indulgences

Between the challenges of your workday and the logistics of taking care of house and home, being an adult leaves precious little time for indulgence. But the truth is, it doesn’t have to take a special appointment or an extra day in the week to treat yourself. You can make your home an escape from the drudgery. Small changes or additions in various rooms can make every day feel a little more luxe and a lot more pleasurable. From splurging a little on the ordinary things to making use of items otherwise reserved for guests, it’s easy to satisfy your desires just by entering your own front door. Here are 10 easy ways to indulge!

1 Part of indulgence is catering to your senses. To that end, trade in your usual drugstore soaps for fancier ones. Between the packaging and the scents, you’ll feel like you’re at a luxurious spa or hotel with little bundles like these.  Shea butter soap, Sweet Petula on etsy.com, $3.  indulge-fresh-flowers.jpg

Don’t wait for birthdays or holidays. Treat yourself to fresh flowers every week, spreading them around in vases of various shapes and sizes. As the seasons change, play with colour and variety for effect. indugle-susy-jack-stationery.jpg

Your home office doesn’t have to feel like an office. Don’t buy plain old yellow sticky notes or boring white notepads. Dress it up with gorgeous stationery. Pretty patterns make working a little (okay, a lot) more enjoyable.  Notecards, SusyJack, $12.75. indulge-silk-bedding.jpg

Splurge on silk bedding … especially silk sheets. They’ll make you feel like you’ve jetted off to an exotic locale or won the lottery! And their luxurious feel makes it just as much fun to wake up in the morning as it does to tuck in at night. Reversible silk quilt, Restoration Hardware, $119.99 to $134.99. indulge-william-ashley-china.jpg

Why wait for company to break out the good dishes? Treat yourself to dinner on your good china any ol’ day of the week. Every meal will feel like a sumptuous affair catered by a Michelin-star chef! Photo: William-Ashley. indulge-candy.jpg

Turn sweet treats into eye candy as well. Place bowls of candies or chocolates around your home. They’ll put a smile on your face any time of day. indulge-bathcakes.jpg

Finding the time to actually linger in a bath may seem like luxury enough. But kick things up a notch with bath products that are decadent and delightful. These bathcakes from Frilly Lilly ($16) are just what bath time calls for.

Decant your favourite bottle of wine. It’ll give you a chance to let the bottle breathe as you catch your breath after a particularly busy week. It feels like a more decadent pour and allows you to better enjoy the vintage. Vino Wine Decanter, Pottery Barn, $29. indulge-home-spa.jpg

Creating an at-home spa is relatively easy. Candles? Check. Aromatherapy oils? Check. Plush towels? Check. Add some scrubbing sea salts to the mix and you’re set. Whether scented or not, they’ll make the experience a little more luxurious!
