30 Chic Days at Home: Self-care tips for when you have to stay at home, or any other time when life is challenging
This eBook was inspired by the global lockdown in early 2020, which I think I can safely say took us all by surprise. One minute we were living life and doing our thing, the next, most of us were advised to stay at home for a month or more.
If you are a reader of my blog ‘How to be Chic’ or follow me on social media, you might have seen my ‘30 Chic Days Series’ on making the most of staying at home. I have spent several weeks confined to the home. We all have.
My writing is all about living a simple, beautiful and successful life without spending a lot of money. I enjoy decorating my home on a budget, having a ‘make-do and mend’ mindset, being creative, and dreaming up my own inspiration.
After finishing the series, I knew it needed a wider audience and hence this eBook was created. I have polished up the daily entries and added to them where appropriate. In addition, at the end of this eBook I leave you with '21 Ways to be Chic at Home' – a summary of inspiring ideas and points to have you feeling more buoyant.
I find with inspiration that it helps my state of mind enormously. Things can seem heavy and insurmountable, but then with a fresh perspective, suddenly the sun comes out and you are feeling brighter.
This doesn’t just apply during a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic situation either. In all hard times, whether it is a divorce, death of a loved one or loss of a job or business, there is grief. But there is also always tomorrow. A better day. A day for living.
It is my wish that this eBook cheers you on, gives you new ideas to thrive with, inspires your creativity and helps you to carry on. You already have the magic within you, and I can’t wait to share all of my inspiration to help you bring it out.
