Treat Yourself Favorites

Thank you to Lindt for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try Lindt HELLO! While this post is sponsored, all opinions about any mentioned products are my own (spoiler: I love Lindt chocolate regardless of if they sponsor a post or not). Click here to enter the Sweet Connections Sweepstakes
I've been in a bit of a rut lately, so I've been trying to take special care of myself to avoid a complete mental breakdown. In doing so, I've found two new favorites of mine, which I thought I'd love to share with you.

There's been a lot of "treating myself" lately because I've needed many pick-me-ups. Not going to lie--I've been letting the magic slip through my fingers lately, so I've needed to find different ways to get it back. These are my current two favorite ways to get magic back into my life. 

Gala Darling has this self-paced course called the Radical Self Love bible. About a month ago, I signed up for it with the hopes that it would serve as a reminder of why I'm awesome on days that I can't see it myself. 
Each Sunday, I get an email with prompts to fill my Self Love bible with encouraging words and images. They range from writing down compliments you get from others, reminding yourself of all the things you love and that inspire you and more. I love spending a leisurely Sunday morning filling my bible (and head) with lovely thoughts. 
I've literally gone through four of these bars in the past week. I adore Lindt chocolate, and when I saw these new chocolates I had to try them. Then of course when Lindt reached out to me for their #itstartedwithHELLO campaign, I was all in. 

The Caramel Brownie ones are my favorite because...hello...caramel! Also, they have this interesting, crunchy texture to them because of the brownie. It's heaven. And it's also helped me through a bout of depression, that time of the month, as well as a sick day or two with the flu. Comfort food at its finest. 

Most days all it takes to get me in a good mood again is some time spent in the blogosphere or on YouTube. Sometimes it takes just the opposite. It's alright sometimes to step back from your responsibilities for the sake of your mental and physical health. Sometimes you need to unplug for a bit and get back to pen and paper and simple things like I've been doing this past month. I hope you guys are all understanding of my stepping back and I thank all of those who have been sending kind words and loving vibes my way. :) I appreciate it all.
