Yep, today is one of those days. Is it me, or am I the only one who seems to get ill all the time? Its usually a pesky old cold, but for some reason i’ve picked up tonsillitis, hooray for me! Seeing as bed rest is on the cards, I thought this would be a great opportunity to write this post sharing with you all of my Sick Day Essentials and a few tips on how to make lying in bed all day a little less dull.
Laptop & Films//
For me, having my laptop around is the most essential. It may seem a little sad to some of you, but you can do pretty much anything, from watching films to actually getting some work done. The film i have been loving recently is The Backup Plan, you can’t beat a good chick flick, especially when you’re ill! But if you don’t have a very selective DVD collection, then spend your time browsing on Netflix, I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll love to watch!
However, if films aren’t your cup of tea, then put some tunes on. The great thing with music is, there is something for every mood, so make yourself a Sick Day playlist and get listening! Here is a link to my Sick Day playlist, to get you all inspired. Sick Day Playlist
If you’re more of a magazine reader or you enjoy reading a good book, sick days are a perfect time to pick either up and have a good read. I’ve currently been loving the books by Linwood Barclay. If crime thrillers are up your alley then I would recommend his books. Alternatively, I love to browse through Look magazine, its my fav!
As far as beauty goes, I can’t say I wear any makeup when i’m ill. Instead I like to treat myself, for example with a good face mask. I’ve been loving the Superdrug’s own Which Hazel mask. It detoxifies your skin and leaves it clean and soft. Apart from my skin, I like to have a good lip balm handy at all times. Maybelline Baby Lips are great, they come in loads of shades so even if you want a wash of colour, these would be perfect!
